Super Collider by Megadeth
Released: May 2013
Label: Ume
Not until after the classic-rock-lush intro of "Don't Turn Your Back," 10th of 11 cuts, does Megadeth's 14th album opt for all-out thrashing. Momentum's in short supply, and Dave Mustaine's vocals sound increasingly strained -- senior citizen-era Alice Cooper comes to mind. Still, there are moments: world-gone-crazy goofiness ("Off the Edge"); semi-talked paranoid ranting for a struggling middle-class ("Dance in the Rain"); quasi-Eastern gloom ("Beginning of Sorrow"); Appalachian banjo into march-time drums ("The Blackest Crow"); a compact Thin Lizzy cover with Priestly riffs ("Cold Sweat.")
