I think it's pretty bad. IMO the only worthwhile tracks are Washington Is Next, Sleepwalker, and Never Walk Alone. Just sounds boring, and uninspired. Dave has lost it and he needs to realize that.

Do you think it's that much worse / different than the recent past? Did you expect Dave to substanially change the Megadeth sound? This album seems to qualify as one of those "more of the same" albums -- which for my ears is a good enough thing.

To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of The System Has Failed, but I think that was substantially better than United Abominations. I don't think it was that much different than in the past, the songs just aren't as good anymore IMO. I didn't expect him to totally re-invent Megadeth on this record, I would have been happy with another TSHF, about half good, half bad songs. But IMO United Abominations only has 3 or 4 worthwhile tracks at best.

We will NEVER get another album close to that. That's what all the idiots on blabbermouth who are like " I WANT ANOTHER RUST IN PEACE!!! " every time Megadeth puts out a new album need to realize. It's never going to happen. It's the unfortunate truth.

Yea, you're right

I hate when bands forget the roots that made them popular in the first place

It really seems like the only Dave hasn't forgot is how to be a complete fucking idiot.
