The Contenders

11 Youthanasia - Megadeth
12 Endgame - Megadeth
13 The System Has Failed - Megadeth

The true comeback of Megadeth. Definitelly deserves top 10. I encourage everyone who thinks Megadeth ended on "Youthanasia"/"Countdown to Extinction"/"Rust in Peace" (pick one) to listen to this album.

few spoilers:
Everything besides two last songs is worth attention, but following tracks deserve a special mention:
- Kick The Chair (that solo)
- Scorpion (generally very good song)
- Back in the Day (this one is the best, most energetic song they recorded since "Rust in Peace" album, perfect from the beginning to the very end)

ps. If I were to choose the top of this list it would be something like:
1. Rust in Peace (best metal album ever)
2. Ride The Lightning ("Fight Fire with Fire" sucks, but the rest is a good rival to RiP)
3. Kill 'em All (Metallica+Mustaine, what do we need more? Great debut)
4. Peace Sells... but Who's Buying (second best from Megadeth, I love the guitarwork)
5. The System Has Failed (as I said before...)
6. ...more
