  • Lots of great songs

    I highly recommend this album if you’re a Megadeth fan. There are some controversial lyrics but at least it makes you think. There is a good variety of sounds in the songs and very powerful guitar rifts as one would expect. Personally I like it a lot.
  • Return to form

  • A little too political

    The songs are all right. The mix and mastering is great. But it's weighed down heavily by Dave's heavily political insights, and talks about the war in the Middle East, and, essentially, just how much he hates George Bush. Oh, hey, look ... it's George Bush on the front of the album cover, being judged. I just couldn't get into this album's lyrical content. There are no deeply memorable tunes that you'd hum in the shower, even a few weeks after hearing it. I played it through, start to finish, maybe three or four times in the last 17 years. On the other hand, I listened to Crytpic Writings so many times, that my 6 disc changer kept it in the magazine for 4 years straight, and even then, still had it in my sun visor sleeve for another 3 years, until I moved everything to digital files. I still get Trust and Almost Honest stuck in my head, and that album is 20 years old. Nothing from The System Has Failed ever gets stuck in my head. Ever. I doubt it ever will. Sorry, Dave. The war and your hatred for Post-9/11 America must not have inspired you enough to move my musical soul, dude. Sorry for ripping on your work, but it is what it is.

Megadeth - The System Has Failed Album Wiki

The System Has Failed is the tenth studio album by American thrash metal band Megadeth, released on September 14, 2004. It was the band's second and final studio album to be distributed by Sanctuary Records. The System Has Failed was the first album to be released after Mustaine recovered from his arm injury sustained in 2002 which prevented him from playing guitar. It is also the first of three Megadeth records not to include original bassist and co-founder David Ellefson. Instead, the album features session players, including former Megadeth guitarist Chris Poland on lead guitar. However, Poland only provided lead guitar parts and solos on a contractual basis and did not rejoin the band. To date, it is the only Megadeth album where the only certified member of the band was Mustaine. The System Has Failed received positive reception from critics and debuted at number 18 on the Billboard 200. The album was generally thought of as being a return to form for the band, after the release of more commercially accessible albums through the 1990s. "Die Dead Enough" and "Of Mice and Men" were released as singles in 2004, and "The Scorpion" was released as a single in 2005. The track "Back in the Day" was featured in the Duck Dodgers episode "In Space, No One Can Hear You Rock" in 2005, which featured an animated version of the band performing the song..
