Megadeth's the World Needs a hero continues the legacy and tradition of metal. It's a masterpiece. Moto Psycho is the best song on the album. Megadeth's writing and production is superb on this album. It's flawless. One of the best metal albums to be released this decade. Sure, it's under-appreciated and under-rated- but it's still an amazing album and one that every metal fan should have. Megadeth delivers with this rockin' album!!

When I heard that Megadeth were releasing another heavy album, I rushed to the store to go and pick it up.Being A huge Megadeth fan I popped it in and to my amazement I found out that Mustaine still had it. The talent to write good music I mean.The songs that stand out to me the most were Dread and The Fugitive Mind and The title track. Return to Hanger was good although a bit cheesy in some respect as all they did was use the same lyrics. The breakdown on that song is kick sss and Pitrelli displays that he too can pull off the blistering thrash lead.I gave it four stars because there was a couple of songs that sucked like Promises and The Am I Evil rip off When, but overall it is a good album.

I think this is a great album. Megadteh have returned to their roots, although that does not necessarily mean that everything sounds like "Killing is My Business" or "Peace Sells," nor does it mean everything sounds like "Countdown" or "Cryptic." This disc finds Megadeth incorporating all of their previous sounds (very little of Risk, however). Songs like Disconnect and the wonderful Dread and the Fugitive Mind sound like Countdown/"Angry Again" era Megadeth while songs like the title track and the end of 1000 Times Goodbye recall some of the best moments of Peace Sells. Recipe For Hate/Warhorse brings a little Rust in Peace into the mix, as does Return to Hangar, while Moto Psycho and Losing My Senses sound like Risk extras to me. If there is one gripe about this record is that it contains a pet peeve of mine. Some people fixate on the Metallica/Megadeth connection, constantly comparing them, etc. I'm not one of those people. Megadeth's music and Metallica's music has always sounded vastly different to me, with a possible exception of Killing is my Business and Kill 'em all, which have some similar vibes going on (not counting Mechanix/Four Horseman). However, one person who does seem to occassionally fixate on the MD/Metallica connection seems to be none other than Dave Mustaine himself. The finale to this disc is the 9 minute "When". What a disappointment. The first half of the track rehashes Metallica's "Call of Kthulu" riff, and then launches into a generic remake of the Metallica concert staple "Am I Evil" which, though not written by the band, is certainly associated with them as they've been performing regularly live for well over ten years, and is featured on more than one of their discs. What a joke.Read more ›

sorry but I don't want to review this album's components. If you want killer metal from the masters from back in the day, listen to Peace Sells or Rust in Peace or Countdown (which was their last good one, pretty much, imo). They made some of the best metal music ever, and if you buy this and say this sucks, Megadeth sucks, you would be missing out on the metal-defining music by Megadeth. This doesn't come close to what they used to write.

This album might be Megadeth's history summarized into one album.
The first thrash releases are represented by the pounding beats and fast guitars of "Warhorse"
The early 90's are clearly here by "Return to Hangar" a continuation from the classic "Hangar 18" from the great "Rust In Peace", where we find fast speed riffs and beats and amazing shreding solos.
The "Countdown" times are heard in "Disconect" and "Dread and Fugitive Mind", still heavy, yet very melodic, easy to listen to, yet fast, thrashy and with awesome solos.
The later albums are represented by songs such as "Losing My Senses" and "Recipe For hate" slower and more experimental. Melodic and with interesting time signatures.
As for the rest the album is one of it's own, I never heard anything in Megadeth's previous albums like "Promises" (a ballad) or "Silent Scorn" (an acustic rhythm military sounding scary song) or "When" (almost a hard rock/metal epic where three riffs into several changes make it a pretty interesting song).
The other songs such as "Motopsycho" and "1000 times goodbye" finds Megadeth being just what they should be Megadeth, and you can't confuse them for any other band, they are fast, heavy, angry, melodic and fun to listen to.
Lyrically, the songs touch political subjects ("The World Needs a Hero", "Burning Bridges") as well as personal demons and lots of pain such as break up pain in "1000 times goodbye", "Promises" and others about straight hate and revenge such as "recipe for hate" and "when"
None the less, this album is without a doubt a great Megadeth album.
