Ok, let me start off by saying I do really like this song, and its about time we get some Megadeth on Rock Band. But, I dont know that Sleepwalker was their best choice. Much less a decent 5th or 6th choice. If this had come in a Megadeth pack with 1 or 2 better songs, I would have been a tad more forgiving, but as our FIRST Megadeth song? Its a little weak.
On to the song. The main riff is incredibly difficult. Its a series of quick notes, followed by a fun little set of Hos and Pos. This is repeated. And Repeated. OH, then it moves over to the Red Fret being the dominate fret... and repeats... and repeats.
I think you get my drift, the main riff, while incredibly challenging, and a bit fun, its far too repetitive. Its very similar to Snow, if Snow was actually a HO/PO, and was remotely fun. Then the first solo hits, and you feel like its a little easier than the rest of the song, and thats because it is. It was weird, almost failing a couple times of the challenging (but repetitive) main riff, and then breezing through the solo.
Then you get back into the main riff, it moves around a bit, they throw in some alt strumming. There is a challenging second solo, but its nothing a little overdrive cant help. Its tough, but its nothing compared Constant Motion or Aesthetics of Hate.
Then, you play the song a little longer, it goes on and on, seeming like forever, very similar to ...And Justice For All.
All and All, its a decent song, but nothing even close to the best of Megadeth, and then its a repetitivly challenging song, with little more redeeming qualitys, other than it actually being a Megadeth song in Rock Band. I really wish I could have given this song a better review, I do, but I just cant, given that I didnt have that much fun with it.
