Megadeth, 'Peace Sells ... but Who's Buying?' (1986)
I know a lot of people go for [Megadeth's 1990 album] Rust in Peace when it comes to Megadeth, and that's cool. I just thought Rust in Peace was a cleaner production, whereas Peace Sells still felt like a thrash-metal album. It had a dirtier production to it, even in the remixes, which I can't stand; the original just feels dirtier. There's an edge to it that you didn't hear anywhere else. So that whole album to me – which is honestly such a riff clinic, it's so fucking dark and awesome – is probably the album that got me into Megadeth. That's the album that's the album that got me into the harder-edged metal.
