Post The "in between" albums
The concept of this thread is to post the albums that got in between two master pieces, but that are still kickass.

Right now, I can only recall two:

Paul Gilbert - Space Ship One
I got my Space Ship One CD, and was listening to it on my car, and man it's an awesome work. But it was released after Burning Organ and before Get Out Of My Yard. Space Ship has got many freat songs, such as SVT, Interaction, Jackhammer and (one of my favorites PG ballads) We All Dream Of Love.

Megadeth - So Far...So Good...So What!
After relasing the totally awesome Peace Sells..., Megadeth released one of my favorites Mega albums. I just love all the tracks on the record (except the Sex Pistols cover...), and I don't really see Dave playing anything out of this one live, except for In My Darkest Hour. Into The Lungs Of Hell is Dave Mustaine and Jeff Young playing the shit out of their guitar... Set the World Afire is a kickass song and so is Mary Jane. I guess that the release of Rust in Peace (the obvious Megadeth masterpiece) after SFSGSW made a lot of people forget about the last, but it sure is one of Megadeth's best albums IMO.

Space Ship One has become my favourite PG solo album, so yeah, I agree! :) It's got a very 70's approach, but at the same time it doesn't sound 70's at all! :lol: I love it. The title track is phenomenal.

Interesting topic!!

Making some memories, I think one of those album has to be "Piece Of Mind" by Maiden.

I know, many of you would say the album had quite some success, but I´m sure that "Number of the beast" and "Powerslave" are more popular and contain far more "maiden classics" than POM. Nevertheless, I feel that POM is one of maiden´s masterpieces (just in case, I think all the first 7 albums are masterpieces, hahah).

A-FUCKING-MEN!!!

That is a great collection of songs. "The Fool on the Hill" is one of the most underrated songs the Beatles ever recorded.

Do you really thin "...And Justice For All" is one of those?

I mean, it's been released in between Master of Puppets and the Black Album, but I don't really think ...And Justice is underrated. For me, as well as for a lot of Metallica fans, ...And Justice was Metallica's last thrash metal album... But yeah....some people who dig Metallica from the BlackAlbum and on don't even know about ...And Justice 's existance.

So Far, So Good...So What! is really an underrated Megadeth album. I disliked the production of the original release--Paul Lani did a fantastic job producing Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? and I feel he dropped the ball with the follow-up album. The 2004 re-issue brings new life to a seriously aged recording; I began to see So Far, So Good for what it was intended.

I have developed quite a few Megadeth favorites over the years and a good number of them are featured on this album. "Into the Lungs of Hell" paved the way for future Megadeth instrumentals like "Dialectic Chaos" off the new album, but just as importantly set the tone of the album in a fast, violent way. "Mary Jane" has a haunting, eerie feel that is reflected not only by the music but by the grave themes written within. "Set the World Afire" is the first of many ventures into nuclear holocaust territory and was followed in suit by "Rust in Peace...Polaris" and (to a lesser degree) "Black Curtains."

What can be said about "In My Darkest Hour" that hasn't been said before? Dave Mustaine wrote the entire song in one sitting and, with pen in hand, managed to express deeply the feelings of grief and sorrow that were brought about by the loss of his friend and former band member Cliff Burton. It can be said, then, that the song is not only Megadeth's first "ballad" song--an immensely successful and popular one at that--but that it also pays tribute to the untimely passing of one of rock's finest bass players.

I look forward to hearing some of these beauties played live when I see Megadeth in March. :D
