Review


Take a donkey and try to pass it off as a horse. Bottom line is that at the end of the day, it will still be an ass!

In addition to the brand new full length, Megadeth have remastered and re-released 8 albums this year and "Risk" is one of them. This "remixed & remastered" version of their 1999 release is no better than the original atrocity. I don't exactly know what is worse to be quite honest. Some tracks here do sound a little better, but others (particularly "Crush 'Em") have been butchered so badly, the original sounds like a cult classic in comparison.

This review exists only to warn the disappointed fanboys (like myself) who thought this re-issue would change a few things…but let's face it, no amount of remixing can help fix up songs like "Breadline"… What did you expect?

No rating, no further comments.
