Megadeth - Rust in Peace 1990
9.5
Technical Prog-Related Thrash Metal
The unofficial best Thrash album of all time. What else is there to say? Stunning musicianship, brilliant songs, relentless pace.

Megadeth - Th1rt3en 2011
7.8
Heavy Non-Prog Metal
A collection of new and old unreleased songs. Good old headbanging metal, enjoyable albeit repetitive.

Megadeth - So Far, So Good... So What! 1988
8.5
Non-Prog Thrash Metal
Not the best Megadeth album, but it does contain some noteworthy tunes like "In my Darkest Hour" and the Megadeth version of "Anarchy in the U.K.".

Heavy Non-Prog Thrash Metal
A very good album, with the amazing classic track, In My Darkest Hour. The flow of the album is somewhat spoiled with the inclusion of the Anarch In The UK, which does not really fit in with the dark/cold nature of the rest of the album

Megadeth - Rust in Peace 1990
10.0
Technical Prog-Related Thrash Metal
Perhaps the peak of thrash metal.
Incredibly well written songs, amazing guitar solos from Marty Friedman (who simply made Kirk Hammett looking like a beginner) overall amazing musicianship and despite it's aggressiveness and some of the most technical metal of it's era, it manages to balance it with a good dose of melodic playing too.

Technical Prog Thrash Metal
A classic, and one of the best thrash metal albums ever. Belongs up there with "Master of Puppets" and "Reign in Blood".

Megadeth - United Abominations 2007
8.7
Heavy Non-Prog Metal
Probably their best album. This one sounds very modern and accessible, with even more "anti-system" songs. MegaDave strikes again...
