World Needs a Hero album for sale Product Description



For a legion of hard rock fans put off by the rap-metal of bands like Korn or the saccharine output of innumerable and interchangeable bubble-gum acts dotting the pop landscape, Dave Mustaine is a guitar-wielding hero. Following the daring experimentalism of 1999's RISK (which alienated the band's more narrow-minded fans), THE WORLD NEEDS A HERO finds Megadeth returning to the high-flying, well-oiled riffing characteristics of earlier works like COUNTDOWN TO EXTINCTION and RUST IN PEACE. Despite hired gun Al Pitrelli taking over on guitar from departed speed merchant Marty Friedman, ominous numbers like "Recipe For Hate... Warhorse," "Disconnect," and "Burning Bridges" are still infused with the kind of speedy trip-hammer riffs and melodic arrangements that always made Megadeth more than just another thrash metal band. Despite penning "Return To Hangar," (a hard-hitting sequel to the conspiracy theory anthem "Hangar 18"), Mustaine continues firmly looking forward. Hence the incorporation of non-metal nuances into material like the melancholy instrumental "Silent Scorn" (featuring a duet with Bob Findley's muted trumpet) and the elegant string arrangements intertwined with a soaring guitar solo that makes "Promises" an effective tale of lost love. Add HERO to the Megadeth canon of thinking man's metal. Recorded at Henson, Hollywood, California; Scream, Studio City, California; Salt Mine Studios, Mesa, Arizona. Personnel: Dave Mustaine (vocals, guitar); Al Pitrelli (guitar, background vocals); Bob Findley (trumpet); Jimmy DeGrasso (drums); Chris Vrenna (programming); David Ellefson (background vocals). Audio Mixer: Bill Kennedy. Recording information: Henson Recording Studios, Hollywood, CA; Salt Mine Studios, Mesa, AZ. Illustrator: Hugh Syme. Megadeth: Dave Mustaine (vocals, guitar); Al Pitrelli (guitar, background vocals); David Ellefson (bass); Jimmy DeGrasso (drums). Engineers include: Bill Kennedy, Mark Valentine, Lance Dean.820618 Q (6/01, p. 110) - 3 stars out of 5 - "... A return to form.... doom-laden narratives, 'dugga-dugga' riffs and much to absorb air-drummers at home..." CMJ (5/14/01, p. 18) - "... Dave Mustaine has learned from his mistakes.... a rock album with quite a metal edge. Mustaine is in classic form talking and singing his trademark, biting, sociopolitical lyrics... "

The World Needs a Zero
World Needs a Hero album for sale Slightly better than "Risk", but much of this CD stays in neutral. The music is above average. The songs themselves for the most part are terrible and not an enjoyable listen.

Very good comeback
World Needs a Hero CD music This was a very nice comeback after Risk. Risk was really not a mistake, but it was a mistake to call it a Megadeth album.
