Reviewed: March 2001
Released: 2001, Sanctuary / Metal-Is
So here I sit listening to a 3 song teaser CD for the forthcoming Megadeth CD ‘The World Needs A Hero’. It will be released by Sanctuary Records in North America on Tuesday 15th May. For those expecting a return to RUST IN PEACE it’s not but it is 1000 times better than the disgrace known as RISK.
The three songs I have are:
“Return To The Hangar”
This has nothing on the fury and guitar godliness of the solos from “Hangar 18.” I consider it a watered down version. It is the best song of the three new ones though!
A so-so song…the intro reminded me of the chugging riffing on “For Whom The Bells Toll” only more watered down.
1000 Times Goodbye
Kinda lame…it’s about some dude getting dumped via telephone by his woman. Whatever… The best part of the song is Mustaine’s outro solos.
So if these three songs are an indication of what they have in store for us then I will “like” it. I will NOT be losing my mind over it like I did over PEACE SELLS back when it came out…or it will not give me the rush that RUST IN PEACE gave me when I first popped it in.
