Some wild metal here
This is the album that started it all. Loud, aggressive, and just as good (if not better) than Metallica! My favorite tracks are “loved to deth” “killing is my business” “skull beneath the skin” and “looking down the cross”. Please note: the songs are uncensored except for “these boots” because they ran into some controversy with the original creator of the song. You can find the unbleeped song with the original (non megadeth’s) lyrics on the final kill release. Giving it 4 stars since they don’t have dedicated clean/explicit versions and it seems kinda odd having some censored and some uncensored tracks in the same release. Anyway it’s a great album for any thrash metal fan!
Disgusted By “ These Boots “
Refund $1.29 Please . I’d Give It No Stars At All For This Crap But You Make It To Where I Have To Give You One . Disappointed I-tunes

Mechanix is not Metallica's Phantom Lord but faster, it is in fact The Four Horsemen. You people obviously have access to the internet, use to do some research before making yourself look dumb.
What is with the unnecessary censorship?
By The One and Only: God
It bleeps out so much of the song "These Boots"! I don't understand why! It's an explicit album so don't censor it!
Great Album, not my favorite mix
This is probably one of Megadeth's greatest albums. I don't believe this is my favorite mix of the album though. If I am not mistaken, this album was originally listed as "Remastered" when this version was originally released on February 5, 2002 on Loud Records.
The original album, released on June 12, 1985 on Combat Records, is in my opinion the best. It has a more raw feeling, less polished, and more LIVE sound!
Although this mix is good it seems a little toned down and a little drum heavy. It does have the censored version of These Boots. Dave Mustaine tells the story about why it's censored better than I ever can; look it up on the web.
This should be five stars but the fact that you aren't getting the "original" album here makes me give it 4.
Fiery Hatred and Musicianship
Megadeth's "Killing Is My Business...And Business Is Good!" raises the bar for debut albums. My ears can't get over how fast and angry this music is! And it's not just pure speed - the technicality involved from EVERY member of the band can be heard and appreciated in this re-release. This is old-fashioned Megadeth at their rawest, most bitter sounding hatred, recorded for over half an hour to blow your speakers out of their non-worthy little tubes. Songs like "Last Rites/Loved to Deth," "Rattlehead" and the title track still light the gasoline fire of thrash metal today whether I'm listening to them on my iPhone, home stereo, the CD player in my car - ANYWHERE. I believe that this is undeniably the best debut album from any of the bands in the Big 4, or any thrash metal band period. END OF STATEMENT.
FINALLY THIS ALBUM IS ON iTUNES FOR ALL TO DISCOVER. It is raw, it is brutal, it is what metal should be. Dave doesn't hold back on this album. This is perhaps their most brutal album to date!!
This guy xD
It isn't phantom lord twice as fast, it's The Four Horsemen. Get it right.
Boots is BLEEPED and ruined in this release
One of the reasons to search out this album has been bleeped and censored and ruined. Keep looking, somewhere other than iTunes apparently.
