Another 'Plus Band X ranked, suckas' List (Plus Megadeth Ranked, Suckas)

Purely my opinion, everyone else will have something different to say though I know.
Rust In Peace

Okay, this is as much down to nostalgia as it is to the unparalelled aggression and intensity that permeates this all-time classic thrash album. From the opening riff of Holy Wars to the closing seconds of Rust in Peace Polaris, the intensity never lets up with the classic Megadeth lineup of Mustaine, Ellefson, Friedman and Menza, and is in all the most perfect example of why Megadeth were once one of those bands that made oneself proud to be a metalhead.
2 Megadeth
Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?

Few bands can claim to have put out an album that is considered a landmark in any genre. Megadeth have two. Falling just short of the greatness of their fourth record, Peace Sells is where Dave and friends really hit their stride following the so-so debut. Finally Dave has found some focus and started well on the way to becoming a lord of thrash metal.
Countdown to Extinction

Anyone who calls this a sellout needs their head checked. Sure, it was a departure from the intense thrash that MegaDave and Co. were previosuly known for but ironically with this change came a maturity in songwriting- instead of focusing slowly on inaccessible guitar wankery, Megadeth actually began writing some actual songs. Of course the whole being more mainstream thing tends to put off the more hardcore fans, beneath the relative radio friendliness lies yet another heavy metal masterpiece from Megadeth's greatest lineup.

Expanding upon their return to form in 2007, Endgame really takes a step further on from United Abominations, along with yet another new lead guitarist in the form of Chris Broderick, Megadeth finally reclaims their throne as one of the kings of thrash metal with intensity not seen since Rust In Peace. Also features Dave's best vocal performance to date.

More mainstream than Countdown to Extinction, Youthanasia is still a fine melodic metal album. Plenty of classics track here to keep any metal fan happy, though there are a few more duds than before as well. Features the all time classic A Tout Le Monde, among others.
United Abominations

Dave finally shrugs off his radio metal dabblings (save for the re-recording of A Tout La Monde with the gorgeous Christina Scabbia on guest vox) and unleashes a slab of pure balls to the wall metal that perfectly blends the intense thrash of old with the more melodic elements of new.
The System Has Failed

Dave's 2004 reboot of Megadeth resulted in a revitalised sound, discarding the radio friendliness to some extent while reintroducing some more of the furious thrash that made the name of Megadeth in the first place.
Cryptic Writings

Even MORE maintream than Youthanasia, CW is still a very good album and probably the most underrated in Megadeth's catalogue. Also the last album featuring the classic lineup, with Nick Menza being replaced on drums by Jimmy DeGrasso
Hidden Treasures

A sweet EP containing covers of Alice Cooper's No More Mr Nice Guy and Black Sabbath's Paranoid ("Nick! Nick!" "...fuck me running!")
So Far, So Good... So What!

Unfortunate to be wedged between the two classic 'Deth records, SFSGSW is a good enough album in its own right but the excesses of Dave and Co's lifestyle were really taking its toll and the quality of songwriting just doesn't live up to most of the catalogue here.
Killing Is My Business...

As debuts go, this isn't too bad, but the horrendous production, Dave's really bad vocal work and lack of real focus make this more one for Megadeth and thrash fanatics only.
The World Needs a Hero

Nothing really particularly bad about this album, but its hardly anything special really either.

Ew. Well, Breadline is pretty good, I suppose.
