Megadeth's albums in order of preference.
The World Needs a Hero
Tied with #12 for worst Megadeth album.
Embarrasingly bad. Don't really care for it.
A good album. But Megadeth feels worn and formulaic. Best song: Fast Lane
The System has Failed
The album that started the band's comeback. Truth be told, it's also one of which I remember the least of. Best song: Die Dead Enough
A very good comeback record. Best song: United Abominations
While often criticized, it still has a share of good cuts. Best song: Trust
Yes, this record blows out of the water quite a few of the earlier records. It could be said that this is the band's last truly great record. Best Song: 44 Minutes
While not on par with others, still a good record. Best song: Addicted to Chaos
Killing Is My Business...
The band's thrash debut. Unlike the later records, the band just seems intent on rocking out for the fun of it. Overall, a fine record. Best Song: Rattlehead.
So Far, So Good... So What!
Often criticized by some, it is really a fine record with addictive rockers. Best song: In My Darkest Hour
Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?
Great riffs, good solos. Don't like all the songs, but all in all a fine metal classic. Best song: Wake Up Dead
Countdown to Extinction
A record with very good songs. Best song: Foreclosure of a Dream
Rust in Peace
The band's magnum opus. Best song: Tornado of Souls
