  • Megadeth’s follow up to their highly influential “Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying?” was an enigmatic album when first released in 1988, with frontman Dave Mustaine noticibly more interested in controled substances than songwriting (“502″ has some of the worst lyrics to ever appear in a Megadeth song), but on it’s own “So Far, So Good…So What!” is still a more than solid metal album, and now this newly released remastered disc finds the production quality cleaned up and sounding better than ever. “Set the World Afire” sounds better than ever, while the cover of the Sex Pistols’ “Anarchy in the U.K.”, along with “Liar”, “Mary Jane”, and “Hook in Mouth” still sound awesome. Oh yeah, there’s a little song on here called “In My Darkest Hour”, which many Megadeth fans consider one of the best songs in the entire catalogue, complete with a new acoustic intro. The bonus tracks, which include remixes of “Into the Lungs of Hell”, “Set the World Afire”, “Mary Jane”, and “In My Darkest Hour” are almost identical to their original counterparts with some different tempos and more riffage, but they are a nice little bonus. All in all, “So Far, So Good…So What!” may not be the best piece of material to come from Megadeth, but it still manages to pack a punch, even to this day. Just like the other Megadeth re-releases, don’t feel the need to shell out the cash for them if you own the originals, but for new fans now is your chance to hear Megadeth better than ever.
