Risk album for sale Product Description



Megadeth has always been a "progressive" metal band in that the musicians take a thrash approach and expand upon it. RISK is no different. The album title stems from the experimental approach taken by the band. RISK will definitely please the Mega-diehards and may draw in some new listeners as well. "Insomnia" features techno guitar riffs and violin and is primed for album-rock airplay. "Prince of Darkness," which also features violin, is a 6:25 metal opus done right. "Crush 'Em" is a fist pumping, arena rock gem. It is also the band's most commercial single to date. "Breadline," a brooding tale of homelessness, lacks the metallic punch of the group's early material but is a melodic winner. "I'll Be There" takes this a step further, going in a Bon Jovi-like direction. Drummer Jimmy DeGrasso's (formerly of Suicidal Tendencies) synchronized talents are featured on "Seven." One of the few '80s metal bands still prospering in the '90s, Megadeth shows no lack of creativity on RISK. The band has matured while still waving the metal banner. RISK pays offÓwith dividends. Liner Note Author: Dave Mustaine. Recording information: Masterfonics, Inc. (01/04/1999-04/22/1999); Masterfonics, Inc., The Trackin (01/04/1999-04/22/1999); The Tracking Room, Nashville, TN (01/04/1999-04/22/1999). Editors: Lance Dean; Keith Schreiber; Scott Harrison. Photographers: William Hames; Mark Weiss; Annamaria DiSanto; Myriam Santos-Kayda; Ross Halfin; Neil Zlozower. Unknown Contributor Roles: Jimmy DeGrasso; Marty Friedman.

Audio Mixers: Dave Mustaine; Jeff Balding; Ralph Patlan. Entertainment Weekly (10/1/99, p. 75) - "... The headbangers prove their mettle when they modernize their bone-crushing rock: The electronically enhanced 'Insomnia' is reminiscent of BROKEN-era Nine Inch Nails and several tracks even pack hummable choruses... " - Rating: B-
Q (10/99, p. 126) - 3 stars out of 5 - "... strong on heaving riffs, anthemic choruses and a newly aquired sense of melody.... overall this is suprisingly vibrant stuff."

Great Stuff.
Although like most Megadeth fans, this is definitely a lot different from the type that I'm familiar with. That, however, is not to say that this is in any way a bad album -- In fact, it's probably in my top five favorite CDs of theirs. Highlights to me of this CD are "Crush 'Em", "Seven", "Wanderlust", and "Prince of Darkness". They all are quite catchy and I find myself randomly humming them. While it's not the thrashy traditional Megadeth material, it still stands on its own as a EXCELLENT album. And its unfortunate that this album didn't do very well, because it is quite high-quality. Most Megadeth fans hear a couple of songs and just think, "Oh, this is terrible! It sounds nothing like Megadeth! Therefore it is cheap quality and there's nothing to like!" When, in fact, this is superior to most Rock bands. It's amazing that Megadeth can reign at the top of the Thrash genre, at the same time, being able to prove that they have just as much talent in Rock. And this album can further be appreciated when you realize, unlike Metallica, they go back to their classic style, with "The System Has Failed" and "United Abominations".

not as good as "Rust" or "Killing Is My Buisness". "Cryptic Writings" is even better than this crap cd.
