The remixed and remastered Megadeth albums released in 2004 aren’t your typical cash-ins. They’re stark improvements over the originals: group leader Dave Mustaine did the remixing and remastering himself, making especially significant revisions to the earlier albums, and he includes insightful liner notes for each reissue, including track-by-track commentary for the bonus tracks, as well as lyrics and period photos. The reissue of Countdown to Extinction, like those of the albums that postdate it, isn’t all that different from its original incarnation. Megadeth was a big-budget band by this point and afforded itself top-shelf production. So, unlike the band’s earlier albums from the ’80s, there’s not too much to improve upon with Countdown to Extinction. Even so, Mustaine does slightly improve upon the album’s already glossy sheen, especially bringing his vocals to the fore (think “Sweating Bullets”) and giving the bottom end a little more oomph. Of course, the sheen of Countdown to Extinction has always been a thorny issue with some longtime fans, and this further polishing isn’t likely to remedy those too-slick criticisms that have increasingly dogged this album with the passing of time. Product Type: Compact Disc.
