Dave Mustaine continues the trait of the snarling, sneering perfectionist on stage and off, producing yet another masterpiece alongside Toby Wright, amidst setbacks and line up changes the gift this man has to entertain is incessant, coming from his drive and passion which is clearly dealt with a firm hand on this record.

Invigorated by fresh blood and sounding more enraged than they have in decades, Megadeth are back on the very best of neck-wrecking form here. [Feb 2016, Issue 279]

Dystopia is the album many Megadeth fans have been longing for, a return to their old glory. It is not a carbon copy of those earlier albums, but fits in nicely with brilliant moments of Mustaine greatness of the late 80’s early 90’s and putting them on track with the more recent heavier albums.

It has been some time since the band sounded this alive and even longer still since Megadeth sounded like a well-oil machine punching out heavy metal with laser precision.

"Dystopia" arrives in the nick of time as the music world mourns the losses of Lemmy Kilmister, David Bowie and Glenn Frey, all departing within days of each other at the end of 2015 or early in 2016. Dave Mustaine's pissed-off snarls are precisely the voice of what we're all feeling as music and metal fans right now, and his lyrical tirades are so very welcome.

Dystopia is an exciting followup to Super Collider mostly because it’s showing that, even after 30 years and 15 albums, Megadeth continues to evolve.

Not bad, a welcome return from the second brink of destruction but not exactly the “Endgame”

The man and the band are back to kick your ass like it’s 1986 all over again. Color me stunned, pummeled and pleased.

Gone are the surprisingly un-metal banjo interludes of their last record, 2013's Super Collider; in their place is some of the most vital and menacing thrash that Mustaine has concocted in years. [Jan 2016, Issue 1253]
