Megadeth - So Far So Good... So What!
So Far So Good is an album I feel is often overlooked by Megadeth fans as "mediocre" and "average". While yes, this is the most flawed of their first four albums, I feel that it's still a good album.
The album starts off fairly decently. The instrumental is nice and it gives a modest show of the albums general sound. The next tracks, Set The World Afire and the Anarchy In The U.K. cover are fairly decent. They don't have any spectacular riffs or any amazing showcase of musicianship, they are nice. However I feel the only reason why these songs are so memorable is because the Set The World Afire has an intro sample from the song I Don't Want To Set The World On Fire and the fact that Anarchy in The U.K is such a popular song. They're most certainly not filler but they don't quite grasp your attention. Around the middle of the album the next tracks, Mary Jane, 502 and In My Darkest Hour are great tracks and are essentially what makes the album so great. The guitar work is killer in these tracks, especially In My Darkest Hour. The album finishes nicely with the track Liar, which sounds like it wouldn't be out of place in Peace Sells, and Hook In Mouth.
Overall I feel this is one of the most unappreciated Megadeth albums I've heard. It can't compare to something like Rust In Peace or Killing Is My Business, but it's a fine album that will bring some enjoyment.
-Overall great guitar playing
-Bass sounds nice
-Dave's vocals sound killer on this record
-Starts off boring
-The drums are nearly inaudible. May be an issue on my part?
