The line-up is different. The record company is new. But vitriol-tongued Dave Mustaine remains Megadeth's one constant. While World Needs A Hero is more commercial and mature than such unbridled early releases as So Far, So Good, So What, this follow up to the poorly received Risk finds Megadeth returning mostly to their metallic roots. Mustaine continues to alternately mine politics and self-reflection to good effect and his solos still shred the ears. The taut, hooky "Moto Psycho" is polished, millennial thrash, and though the rest of the material on this 12-song collection isn't as instantly memorable, it's certainly ambitious. Mustaine's biting vocal and the muscular musicianship of the powerful title track and the pained love-lost ode "1000 Times Goodbye" hit the mark, as does the epic, string-laden ballad "Promises", though Mustaine's patented vocal seems out of place, as does the classical guitar on "Recipe For Hate-Warhorse". That said, old-school fans will worship the likes of "Moto Psycho" and the classic and brutal "Dread and the Fugitive Mind" and "Return to the Hangar". --Katherine Turman
