Cataloguing My Metal Collection Pt. 85
ORIGIN: Los Angeles, CA (United States)
TITLE: Cryptic Writings
LABEL: Capitol Records
GENRE: Heavy Metal/Hard Rock
FAVORITE SONG: "A Secret Place"
NOTES: Megadeth really started to drift away from thrash metal on this one, and even heavy metal on some tracks. They were trying to follow the Metallica formula I suspect. But I like this album a lot better than I like Load. I think a lot of the songs are surprisingly catchy. It is not the best album by Megadeth, or even remotely close, but it is not the worst either.
