Megadeth – Super Collider

Whether by intention or perverted luck Megadeth once got a finger in the ass of commercial success. Now with Super Collider, their 14th studio-birth, it seems they may have decided to jam their heads up there as well. All anyone wants from Megadeth is some decent thrash, and first track ‘Kingmaker’ is the closest the album gets to it. What follows is fare that is largely limper than Dave’s conspiracy rants. ‘Super Collider’ itself feels like it’ll be all over your radio but not your stereo, whilst ‘The Beginning Of Sorrow’ and ‘Dance In The Rain’ have the social/political depths of a footprint. Closing in a half decent style is a cover of Thin Lizzy’s ‘Cold Sweat’, which just makes you feel for the rest of the album. Hopefully this will persuade Dave and co to pull out their heads and return to the stick, not the slick. Or wash their hands at least.
