So Far, So Good isn't a bad record by any means - it's actually quite good! - but it is definitely the weakest I've heard from the band yet.

There are a ton of really good thrash tracks on here. The instrumental opener Into The Lungs Of Hell was a cool little track that did a great job at setting the tone of the album. The follow-up to that was also a great song, Set The World Afire. Their cover of Anarchy In The U.K. wasn't the greatest song they've ever done, but it was decent enough ... read more

This record is best seen as the connecting moment between peace sells and rust in peace. Its not as good as either, but it has elements of both and has truly some shining moments.

So, Far, So Good isn't a bad recorded but it is definitely a set down from Peace Sells. The production often seems worse and the songs aren't as catchy as memorable and the ideas and themes are lackluster with very little focus. However, with some good instrumentals which is displayed on the introduction track and still some solid vocal work by Dave Mustaine keep this record from being too dull.
