  • Unbelievable is the only word I have for this track, every single second is stunning no matter how many times I listen. That fucking riff during the transition is a bitch to play but delightful. Mustaine has always been a vocalist of his own standing, you absolutely cannot deny his voice is a one off and it's only fitting he snarls or croons over his demented compositions.
  • Classic track. Original version's the best, though - the remixed version doesn't have the same magic.
  • great song !
