"This album is as underrated, as it is misunderstood. Every album that Megadeth has ever done has been different from the other. They always keep it heavy, but are wholly willing to try anything new, so long as it is quality.
I appreciate far more the thrash/speed metal Megadeth we all love, then, say, the "Risk" or "World Needs a Hero" MD, that takes getting used to or just isn't any good. Having said that, this album is high quality, as far as written material goes. True, don't expect "Rust" or "CTE" level decibles, but there is material to treasure here, I don't see how that can be in question.
Most songs on here, while more metal than thrash, are extremely well written. I personally love the majority of the songs on this album.
Check it out."

"Youthanasia being Megadeath's 6th studio album and their 1994 release is not the thrash metal one is used to but more of a heavy metal and hard rock album with softer guitar riffs then one is used to hear from this band. Whilst this not being bad it just sounds a little less forcefull then one is used to hear from this group. The booklet contains all the lyrics but not a list of whom plays what. Allmusic and Blender gave the album 3/5 and I agree with them and give the same. 3/5."
