Most accessible single from "Countdown" and the classic Mega

"The second single release from Megadeth's 1992 masterpiece, "Countdown to Extinction," is by far their most accessible single to date. Following the smash hit, "Symphony of Destruction" (also from "Countdown") Megadeth continued to release top-selling singles well into the 1990's and beyond.
"Foreclosure of a Dream" is a song that perfectly captures the essence of Megadeth in the early 1990's, following their transition from "thrash metal innovators" to "commercial metal kings." (Now former) guitarist, Marty Friedman, is in fine form here, as he blasts through a live version of "Countdown" opener, "Skin O' My Teeth" and a special industrial mix of "Symphony of Destruction," which was mixed by Trent Reznor (of Nine Inch Nails fame) along with Megadeth founder and creator, Dave Mustaine.
Drummer, Nick Menza, and long-time bassist, David Ellefson, also shine on this particular "maxi-single" release. There are two fine versions of the title track included on this CD. The first being the original LP version contained on 1992's "Countdown to Extinction" and the radio edit version that was partly used for the accompanying music video, which came out during the time of the single's initial release. This fine video can be seen on the 2-DVD compilation, "The Arsenal of Megadeth" released two years ago. I highly recommend this extended, maxi-single to anyone devoted to this (now 25 year old) classic band.
