I listened just to the infamous title track, and to be honest I can't see why is it so horrible. The chorus is a bit weak indeed, but the whole thing is kind of ok. It's not actual metal I guess, but it's not a terrible song, it's just... well "ok" is the best term here.


Not so much a bad song, it just doesnt sound like Megadeth. As Ive said before, everytime I hear it, it sounds like a new Motley Crue song.

Listening to the whole thing now. It's not too bad and makes for a pretty decent rock album. May get it for cheap.

Okay, so apparently Dave actually did have artwork of Vic Rattlehead done. Why the hell did he go with that shithouse album cover when he had all this better art made?!

That's so much better than the final album cover that it's not even funny.

I've not listened to it yet, but I've got a feeling shithouse artwork will suit the albums overall feel.

I listened to the track with the banjo in it yesterday, it seemed a bit of a mess - certainly nothing special.

It looks like Megadeth as drawn by the dude who did the mid-80s Judas Priest albums.

I was in HMV today and looked over the CD case. The Rattlehead-Meets-Transformers art is on the back cover, so at least it exists in some fashion on the physical product.

Vic Rattlehead is Iron Man. Go figure.

Having the awesome cover would be misleading, since the album sucks. I sent my friend a link, who likes the old stuff, and he hated it. He thinks Dave should retire.
