This Greatest Hits compilation CD has been released following the complete remixes of Megadeth's albums released by Capitol records. This is indeed one of the albums strengths: all the songs now sound better than ever and since they were personally remixed and remastered by Dave Mustaine himself sound the way they should.
The tracks on the compilation give an excellent overview of Megadeth's back catalogue and since they were chosen by Megadeth fans, no good song has been overlooked. There's even tracks from Megadeths pre-Capitol records days and from their post-Capitol days: Mechanix from Megdeth's 1985's "Killing Is My Business...and Business Is Good!" which is no doubt to draw in some Metallica fans curious to hear this version of a song written by Mustaine when he was in Metallica, and Dread And The Fugitive Mind from 2002 "The World Needs a Hero". Unfortunatltly there is nothing from "The System Has Failed" which is by far Megadeth's strongest album since the mid 1990's, but legal issues more than any other reason have stood in the way of putting any more songs released on the Sanctuary label.
Still, this album is packed full of great songs, solos, riffs, lyrics that will have any metal fan banging their head.
The DVD is also an excellent bonus. The sound levels are really poor in the live section (you can barely hear Marty Friedman's guitar!) but the songs included are great and to watch Dave Mustaine doing what he does best is worth more than what you pay extra to get the DVD - check out his solo in Symphony of Destruction and Hangar 18 is even better live.
Overall, this is a much better Greatest Hits compilation than "Capitol Punishment" and with the extra live DVD it is definitely worth a listen/watch. Its just a shame there is no songs from "The System Has Failed" and the notes in the booklet have had little or no input from Dave Mustaine, which is a shame as his notes in the remixed albums are superb...

the best of megadeth....never gonna be easy to whittle it down to 15 odd tracks but they have done a pretty good job at representing the bands back catologue on this cd.

the majority of the essentials are here from the insane thrash of hangar 18 and holy wars through to the drug fuelled paranoia of sweating bullets and in my darkest hour(arguably one of the finest songs any of the big 4 wrote)

they are even brave enough to include tracks for the slightly sub standard albums of the late 90`s...not to everyones taste bu they have a part to play in the evolution of the band

you can see as the band evolved they got more groove and more melodic....the only poor effort is a pointless remix of the mechanix... only done to allow them to put it on this compilation (so in that respect job done) as it is a great reworking of the metallica version.

but we can argue about Horsemen and the mechanix for years...that is not what we are here for....this is a very solid collection of songs....not the best overall but a very good cross section for new comers...if you own the albums leave this alone if you have only heard about the band start here to see what style of megadeth suits you!
