The Megadeth Remasters were very controversial; thank God I kept my original 1990 CD of 'Rust in Peace' as the remaster is shite. New vocals on some tracks as Mustaine couldn't locate the originals. The sound is just not the same at all, the 1990 original surpasses the 2004 version in every way.

The 2004 Youthanasia has a completely different drum/rhythm sound than the 1994 original, and I think it's far inferior. It sounds like a completely new drum take or an alternate to what was originally on there.

SFSGSW is the only improvement really; the original is very muddy and reverbed, the 2004 version actually sounds great.

Peace Sells 2004 is awful, but the 25th Anniversary is definitely better and more or less equal to the original.


I just bought the 2004 cd the other day in golden discs of all places, it's really awful

What was ever wrong with the original Machine Head?

Seems like the Garage Days EP is next up. They've done a great job on all of them so far, hoping they keep it going

The trumpets on into the lungs of hell - ugh.


Played this to a friend recently who hadn't heard it and he spat coffee all over himself when those trumpets came in. That SFSGSW remaster is horrendous.

I picked up the MOP one and, to be honest, it wasn't all that far removed from the original - not worth buying if you already spent money on the original version, I would say. The original mastering of the early stuff was done well, as was the black album and even Load & ReLoad. There is no need to remaster them at all.

Thus, I won't be buying Garage Days once again and will only spend money on AJFA if it includes a new mix.

The MOP new version sounds brighter but how much difference it has to the DMM or Half Speed remaster I cannot really tell

Nowt, but you get the best of both worlds with how those two design sets were done.

This remaster, had a few listens to it back to back with the original and it's largely pointless.

I have the 3 boxsets.

Mega good stuff. The remix on Puppets is really really good.

I just expected it to be another yeah yawn remix.

The bonus stuff and books on all three is class. Also got the cassette with cliffs last show. Great stuff man a real labor of love.

10/10 on all three.

PS The jump in the fire 12" looks great spinning on a turn table! mesmerising!

Shame they didn't do the Creeping Death 12" true to the original

A comment on the megadeth remasters. They were shite.

I still choke when I hear the trumpets on into the lungs of hell.

They did fix the bad volume change on the Trust build up. But sure that's roughly where I turned that album off....

Metallica have milked enough out of their back catalog already, all this will be available online, the audio recordings and the pictures, which is the guts of it.
I have the first four albums and there's enough live stuff online for years.
They've plundered their stuff enough, fucking cash in. Fuck them.
