Are you listening to the remaster? He redid vocals on some of the songs.


I'd question the sanity of anyone who could justify listening to the remaster, completely ruins the album.


No doubt there's younger heads out there that have only ever heard the remixed versions, a grim thought.

Ah lads, yeah remaster was painful to listen to. Just the once, thankfully.

Never noticed the 'Tornado of Souls' differences. Gonna stick the album on now cos my curiosity's been piqued.

Just listened back - his voice does sound brighter, maybe he recorded it first or it was sped-up/pitched up slightly.

Yes of course, but RIP is also one of the greatest metal albums ever, Tornado of Souls being the pinnacle. Just an amazing song.

Nail on the head. That's exactly the effect I'm describing. And yet now I listen back a bit its only really the first half of the song as well.

Weird!


Edit - FWIW I think 'Victory' is Friedman's best ever solo.

What a god-awful song though! Enjoying the solo is a little like making love to a gorgeous woman who lives in a pool of raw sewage.

"I LOVE IT!"

Peace Sells comes close in my opinion and probably gets played more than Rust too when I think about it.

No, Peace Sells stands shoulder to shoulder with it and, these days, I'd listen to it more. TOS is Friedman's best solo though and, therefore one of the greatest solos in Metal.

I'm obviously in a slim minority that thinks So Far So Good So What is every bit the album that Peace Sells and RIP are.

Fair few filler songs i think on SFSGSW. The closest thing in common it has with Peace Sells is that they both contain shite cover songs but other than that, it doesnt come near it.

SFSGSW is seriously weak sauce, especially when you consider what came immediately before and after it.

I think Peace Sells and RiP are two very different records (for obvious reasons). In terms of quality, RiP wins for me but not by much (that Willie Nelson cover really drags PS down though).

But what really elevates RiP for me is the wild, unpredictable creativity of it. I remember my first time really listening to it, I just couldn't keep up with all the changes, riffs and solos. The fact that they're all killer too made it pretty bewildering to take it all in in one go and makes it sound deadly to this day.

Think this is a good shout.

Listening to this performance of it from 1992, it really sounds like Mustaine just can't quite hit the notes.

Dave Mustaine can't quite hit any note live.

Well yeah of course he can't, but the other RiP material from that gig sounds "right".
