Still nothing this year about a vinyl repress. I can't imagine how the guys that are responsible for repress and edition do not understand what people want. This piece may be the most wanted Megadeth repress as I never saw it under 200$ (moreover with no cover), but they keep on pressing rust in piece every 5 years... Really I don't understand. We need a huge serie of repressings in Megadeth's albums (Cryptic writings / Risk is a sample, but for people who don't own the albums after RIP and before the system has failed, it's a shame that we are forced not to listen to them.) Even Metallica repressed their awfull last albums. What the f**k are you waiting for ????

I listen to them 30 years ago. It was the first thrash-speed metal to my young & virgin ears. How I can believe that CRYPTIC WRITINGS is their best album.....isn't it???
