I've been thinking of getting the remastered Megadeth albums, but I've been hearing a lot of negative feedback about them. What should I do?

If you can stick to the originals, I love Megadeth but he is doing revisionist history by re-recording parts of the album and solo.

I like the remasters mostly because of the bonus tracks. The rerecorded stuff doesn't bother me.

From what I've been told, only the Risk remaster is a bit different. I'm sure he touched up on everything, but Risk is the one album I've been told where you could actually notice.

I have the originals though, I bought'em before the remasters and I'm not going to buy it again, even if there are bonus tracks.

I have all of the originals and like them just fine, but I will be getting the remasters (as time and budget permit) due to the desire to have the bonus material. Peace.

Original. The "remasters" aren't just "remastered", they are remixed and in some cases re-recorded. I detest what they did to "Into the Lungs of Hell" on the new version.

Dave basically re-recorded the whole thing and added a horn section to boot.

Not to mention the wussified drum sound on Peace Sells.

The only remaster that still retains anything worthwhile is the Killing Is My Business one.

That horn thing is on the original. It's just buried in the mix. Listen closely you can hear it. It sounds more like a keyboard on the original though.

If it's buried in the original, it needs to stay buried. Trog and I played both side by side trying to hear the "keys/horns" in the original release. You cannot hear them. I've read that Dave "wanted them" but they were completely left off. Good thing. They suck and make the song wimpy.

Some parts of the remasters are better and some parts of the originals are better. Get them both.

I prefer the originals, the only reason I have the remasters is for the bonus tracks. I hate the remastered version of Take No Prisoners,Five Magics,Into The Lungs Of Hell, and many more.

I bet when they remaster "United Abominations" 20 years from now, we'll complain about it too. Very Happy

No, you're right, the change in Risk is very noticeable. Not so much in Youthanasia or Countdown.

I didnt mean that Risk wasn't changed, because it is. But, all of them have been tampered with, and you can tell on most of them
