The first four albums are amazing.
I seem to be the only one in the world that doesn't like Countdown. I mean, I don't HATE it, it's just terribly overrated. The songwriting in Youthanasia is a lot more interesting to me. Countdown just drags.
Endgame easily has a spot in my top 5 Megadeth albums. Th1RT3EN was good. Not great, just good. Definitely a step down from Endgame.
I can't say I'm super into thrash metal (I'm more into melodeath and folk metal), but I do love Slayer, and Show No Mercy is probably my second favorite Slayer album. I never got super into Overkill, but I do like 99% of the stuff I've listened to by them.
