13 Endgame - Megadeth
14 That One Night: Live in Buenos Aires - Megadeth
15 Rude Awakening - Megadeth
16 Countdown to Extinction: Live - Megadeth
17 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

18 Youthanasia
19 Killing is My Business and Business is Good - Megadeth
20 Death Magnetic - Metallica
21 So Far, So Good... So What! - Megadeth
22 Cryptic Writings - Megadeth
23 Hardwired... To Self-Destruct - Metallica
24 St. Anger - Metallica

Megadeth fans are like - "Lol! Is that all you got? We're better than you because you made that album! Lol! Megadeth rules Metallica sucks! "

Metallica fans are like - "Have you ever made an album as good as Master of Puppets or Ride the Lightning? Oh wait, there aren't any! We're better than you! "
