Editorial Reviews

Megadeth was formed in 1983, shortly after California native Mustaine parted ways with Metallica. "When I first started the group, I wanted to form a band because I was very bitter about being fired (from Metallica) and my fuel was revenge," said the bracingly candid musician. With something to prove, Mustaine initially set out to create the heaviest metal band ever. Beginning with the band's 1985 debut album, Killing Is My Business.And Business Is Good!, and evolving through a shifting series of lineups, Megadeth crafted a dynamic, intelligent style that combined the aggressiveness of thrash metal, the improvisational nature of jazz, and cynical, articulate, politically-charged lyrics into an innovative mix that built a rabid worldwide following. Several early albums, including 1986's classic Peace Sells.But Who's Buying? and the masterful 1990 release, Rust In Peace, solidified the band's underground metal fanbase. In 1992, Megadeth burst into the mainstream with their fifth album, Countdown To Extinction, which debuted at #2 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart and went on to sell more than two million copies in the U.S. alone. 1994's Youthanasia followed with a #4 debut, while 1997's Cryptic Writings yielded four Top 20 hits at rock radio, including "Trust" and "Almost Honest." By the time of 1999's Risk, however, which featured a pop slant unheard on previous Megadeth recordings, Mustaine himself began to grow disillusioned with the band's direction and the music industry. 2001 saw a return to the band's heavier roots on The World Needs A Hero, but a year later, a compressed nerve in Mustaine's arm forced the singer and guitarist to put his career and Megadeth on hiatus, while reassessing both. Part of that reassessment involved Megadeth's Capitol Records catalog, which began with the band's second album, Peace Sells.But Who's Buying? "I always had the desire to make So Far, So Good.So What! (1988) sound good ever since it came out, because I wasn't really happy with it," says Mustaine. "I just wanted all of them to sound good." Mustaine spent months remixing, remastering, restoring - and in some cases, reconstructing - the band's Capitol catalog to bring it as close to his original vision as possible. Each reissue was packed with unreleased tracks, demos and alternate mixes, as well as new liner notes by the iconoclastic Mustaine. Megadeth's tenth studio album, 2004's The System Has Failed, debuted at #18 on Billboard's Top 200, and the band's sold-out "Blackmail The Universe" tour followed, supporting the new album and Capitol's extensive catalog campaign. Dave Mustaine's "GIGANTOUR," inspired in name by the classic 1960s cartoon "Gigantor," took Megadeth and a host of other bands selected by Mustaine across North America in 2005 and 2006. The prophecy continued with the band's most recent critically acclaimed album, United Abominations. For the majority of three decades, Megadeth has yanked heavy metal into the future - and been rewarded with seven Grammy nominations and five platinum and multi-platinum albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars It may be the third, but is also the best. October 5, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This compilation covers the First album all the way to the first compilation (Capital Punishment: The Megadeth Years Dread and Fugitive Mind also made it to the ninth (The World Needs a Hero) album) This compilation is heavy on the first five capitol records (Peace Sells to Youthanasia) albums plus hidden treasures on top of 2 tracks from the first (Killing Is My Business), Seventh (Cryptic Writings), and Eighth (Risk) albums including some b-sides(demos, live tracks, and rarities). A majority of the tracks are the remixed versions from 2004. For some reason the original mix of Rattlehead was used instead of the 2002 remix (The 2002 Remix of Mechanix was used though). I recommend this album for first time megadeth buyers that don't want to buy all the albums and doesn't want to buy the more expensive Warchest that is mostly full of rarities,demos and live tracks than the hits and fan favorites.

P.S. Every track that was on the second compilation (Back To The Start: Greatest Hits) is on here except the studio version of Symphony of Destruction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation December 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
If you're quite new to the band then this cd would be the right choice as it contain all megadeth songs from 85-02, minus the latest 2 albums which under sanctuary record. This cd include 3 live tracks and all songs are remastered version and there are new 2 remastered songs here "breakpoint" and "rattlehead", they sounds awesome here and its not remixed just remastered. Overall i think i still prefer the "back to the start" greatest hits cd, as the album cover is way better and its include up to the system has failed, but this is not bad compilation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another Compilation... October 8, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Seems Capitol is really into milking Megadeth as of late, and it also appears they are into duping us fans by releasing a "demo" of a track that is only a slowed down/pitch altered version of the regular, album release version of High Speed Dirt.

If you already own the albums (remastered or originals), or another better compilation (Capitol Punishment, Back To The Start, or even the Warchest), then just ignore this pathetic release.

Format:Audio CD
Being kicked out of Metallica was the best thing that ever happened to Dave Mustaine. It wasn't long before he had his own band up and running - and the red-haired guitarist proved he could thrash with the best of `em. From 1983-2002, the band gave audiences two decades of the finest heavy metal on the face of the planet. Needless to say, they're a group that has no shortage of hits compilations.

Set The World Afire is, to my knowledge, the third Megadeth hits compilation (the others were Capitol Punishment and Back to the Start.) This compilation covers material ranging from 1985-2000.

So how does Set The World Afire hold up in comparison to the earlier Megadeth compilations? Considerably better considering it's two discs. The compilation unites a ton of key album cuts with plenty of non-album ones (soundtrack songs, for example.) There are a few gaping omissions that drag it down, though, and keep it from getting a perfect score.

Killing is My Business... And Business is Good! (1985)
Tracks Featured: Rattlehead, Mechanix
Comments: I'm pleased to see this compilation didn't give the band's first album the shaft. We get two great tracks from this classic thrash debut, though The Skull Beneath The Skin and Last Rites/Loved To Death are disappointingly omitted. Still, I'm grateful anything from this album got included at all.

Peace Sells... But Who's Buying? (1986)
Tracks Featured: Wake Up Dead, Peace Sells, Devil's Island
Comments: Great sophomore album, three great tracks. Very pleased to see the underrated gem Devil's Island make the cut. My only complaint is the omission of Good Mourning/Black Friday.

So Far, So Good... So What! (1988)
Tracks Featured: Anarchy in the U.K.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you're planning on buying this cd... October 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
be aware that the songs on this cd are the remastered songs. these are the "alternate versions" of the songs. they are not the original studio album versions. if you like the new versions of the songs buy it if not then dont waste your money. Sound quality is very distorted/staticky.

The song selection is pretty decent, but where's "Lucretia" ?
