    Many music fans consider this a thrash / speed metal plates of the best. “Peace Sells … But Who's Buying? “Dave Mustaine is undoubtedly the first masterpiece. It is a classic, standard-setting album, is one of the best and most powerful and contagious release from the 1980s (top right with Metallica “Master of Puppets” and Slayer's “Reign in Blood”). The famous album opener, “Wake Up Dead”, has a pair of guitar solos, and a few tempo changes, and “The Conjuring” is a catchy song, with fast, propulsive efficiency riffs. Next, the title track has more catchy, chugging guitars, several small solos and an infectious sing-along at the end. “Iceland's Devil” and “Good Mourning / Black Friday” Both have tasty solos (and “Good Mourning” also has a very catchy chorus, and almost buzzsaw riffs). From front to back, this C.D. is very catchy, almost perfect. It is a must for all your own and Thrash Metal Collection. The essence is, if you like heavy metal, why you should not buy “Peace Sells … But Who's Buying? ” Plus, I always recommend the Remastered version of this CD The four remixes at the end is not something particularly interesting, but overall, the album's sound quality is significantly improved.

    A solid vitriol filled effort from the bands earlier period
    I’ve had this album in one form or another since it came out in the 80’s, so I’ve had plenty of time to listen to it, and I’ve come to this conclusion:
    This is one of…

    This is the first CD I have from my series of remaster I bought. This is the CD that Megadeth on the map, so to speak. Dave Mustaine has a fabulous job on this CD. It sounds incredible! I remember this CD for the first time when I was 16 and in the High School. I knew someone at school gave me his copy, and I thought it was a wonderful CD.
      The best three tracks are “Wake Up Dead, The Conjuring, and Peace Sells.” But, actually all the tracks are good. There is not a bad song on this CD. The 4 bonus tracks are very interesting to hear how good.
      The CD booklet contains a new commentary by Dave Mustaine on “Peace Sells But Who's Buying /” There are also some cool photos of the band in 1986.
      long and new Megadeth fans will be happy. I'm glad that Dave Mustaine is back to play in top form. I can not wait for the new Megadeth album, “The system has failed” is on 14 September 2004. I'm also glad they live in the upcoming tour.

    A lot of people give, Slayer's Reign in Blood more credibility than it deserves. Of course, I am not forgetting the impact of the inclusion on the Metal scene, and it was definitely one of the most influential albums of all time, no doubt, but compared to this gem, as it seems, only a general thrash record for me jedenfalls.
      should note that I while I love thrash, it does not come anywhere near my favorite genre. I enjoy the whiplash of brutal Slayer and Sepultura, as well as the melodic thrash / speed combo of Nevermore, and even the 90's, neo-thrash of Pantera and Machine Head – but I do not think any of these bands could be upwards (except perhaps Nevermore, really an amazing band). While the band were writing songs about hell and Satan (also, Slayer anyways), Megadeth combat the realistic issues of drugs, sex and politics (emphasis on the last one). Peace Sells … was 2 full-length record (first on Capitol) and the drive that Megadeth in metal-Stars. It was here that they released one of their biggest hits, “Peace Sells”, my favorite Megadeth song by far. Sure, there were great songs like “Hangar 18″ and “Symphony of Destruction” in later years – but no, like energy and honesty, because this Thrasher. We offer these memorable texts such as “if there is a new way / I will be the first line in / better job, but this time” That was probably the catchiest album of the offer. Of course one must not forget the other single “Wake Up Dead” – a song, a decadent solo halfway through that lasted about a minute. And of course we have the faster pace of “Devil's Iceland” and “My Last Words” – two of the best Megadeth songs in my opinion.
      In reality, there is not much to complain here. The Remastered version includes the original mix of songs before they are again responsible for the Capitol version in 1986 – showing a few differences from those of the final version. This album is the length which is a bit short, and also a better sound. It is not worth buying if you are the original, of course, but it is nice to have. All in all, I think Dave and the guys were really something special with this gem. A milestone that the metal bar for quality thrash.
      10/10

    Yeah, the remastering/mixing sucks… but it’s still their best
    Megadeth at their raw, drugged out, punky and pissed off best. “Killing Is My Business…” is rawer, but a little too raw…

    Remastered took the fun out of the album
    I’m reviewing the remastering of this album. Megadeth certainly isn’t one of my favorite bands, nor is Metallica. I listen to them every now and then, but that’s really it.

    Solid remastering effort for a timeless album
    Peace Sells might be recognized in history as Megadeth’s coming-out party. The band’s debut album did well for an independent label, but upon graduating to Capitol Records,…

    Peace Sells…But Which Is Worse?
    (the 1986 original)
    Jeez, I don’t know who sounds worse, Mark Slaughter or Dave Mustaine.

    Avoid the remasters!
    Okay, I understand that the first two ‘deth albums were recorded horribly and they needed to be remastered. They didn’t, however, need to be re-recorded.

    this album is really awesome. if you are a fan of megadeth, you should already have this album. The only reason it has four stars is because “rust is peace” is an absolute…

    I’m out to destroy and I will cut you down!
    Wow. 1986 was quite a year for metal, wasn’t it? Reign in Blood and Master of Puppets are the two albums that immediately come to mind.

    Horrid! Dave Mustaine destroyed his own greatness…
    The incredible classic speedmetal opus “Peace Sells…”, here re-mixed by Dave Mustaine, has been completely trashed — vocals horrible, transitions to leads awkward and ungainly,…
