Something is wrong with the production or the rip of the album. The tracks come out sounding flat. The volume is low, but even more than that, the tracks just sound off-something akin to playing a cassette tape with a dirty head. I downloaded another Megadeth track off a different album, and that songs sounds find. So I think it is something with this album.

I have downloaded over 30 albums from Amazon MP3s, and this is the first time that I have had an issue with sound quality. This makes me suspect it was somewhere else in the production of the album before it was converted to MP3.

After years of listening and watching Megadeth on radio and MTV, I finally decided to obtain this "Greatest Hits" collection. Very heavy and melodic with Dave Mustaine's snarling vocals! Long before buying this collection, I was only familiar with songs like "Symphony Of Destruction", "Sweating Bullets", and "Train Of Consequences", songs you'd only hear on the radio. Now, after listening to this collection, I've realized just how truly great the band is! Combine the technically proficient fast guitar playing with Dave's biting lyrics and cynicism and lots of melody and you have some truly MEGinificent music! My favorite track overall is "Peace Sells" followed closely by "Mechanix". Classic thrash metal never sounded so good! I've already ordered Rude Awakening and The System Has Failed. Most of all, I'm already looking forward to the release of their new album, United Abominations. In all honesty, I think these guys are even better than Metallica!

This album is a good overview of Megadeth's work. I would recommend this album to anyone new to Megadeth, or who doesn't already have their other albums.

Many Megadeth fans would agree that this is their best compilation. These songs were chosen by popularity votes on Megadeth's website. In translation, th fans chose the songs, while produced by the mastermind Dave Mustaine himself. I would recommend this album for any Megadeth fan, for it spans the ferocious career of Megadeth with all of the different lineups and their greatest most effective tracks.

Let me tell you something. I have been a fan of Megadeth for a heck of a long time. One of the first compact discs I ever got was Countdown to Extinction back when it was brand new in 1993. That was back when compact discs used to come with extra cardboard paper packaging artwork. I put my picture of Vic in my Trapper Keeper notebook, as a proud statement that I was a fan of Megadeth, who for most of my life I have thought are one of the coolest bands on earth. I have seen Megadeth live twice. Really, Megadeth is one of my favorite bands of all time, along with Dream Theater. I even loved Killing Is My Business and Business Is Good.

So, by now you must be wondering, where did Megadeth go wrong on "Back to the Start?" That answer is entirely in the mix. I loved all the original mixes, and I detect that in this remake they tried to make the album sound better through doing a tad of things such as adding the effect, compression. I hate compression, probably, because it seems as if everyone uses it these days. Sure, the kids probably won't know the difference, and maybe even will like it better, but Dave you've got to admit that you sold your soul to the devil on this one.

Of course, some of the tracks that were originally released with compression like Skin O' My Teeth rock hard. It is just that I don't like the touch ups on what I considered to be the old classic Megadeth albums. They didn't need touch ups.

Additionally, while I don't like this record mixed in with other discs, as I crave the original sound not the remix, as a whole the album mixes better with the touch ups. For example, Hanger 18 sounds hideous in this collection. Megadeth has been around for so long that technologies have changed, some for good, some for bad. What this means is that when listening to a bunch of music the technology on each album usually varies, and this hits package seems to try to overcome that, and it does so with a moderate amount of success.

I can't believe this guy MTV Rocks wrote a review about this cd, I mean, how dare you? You obviously don't know anything about music, u like ashlee simpson? coldplay? 50 cent? Simple Plan? Limp Bizkit created Metal? Look KID since it seems you know a couple of chords, i'd recommend you to Stick to the garbage you like and don't touch the Gods (May, Pink Floyd, Maiden, Megadeth, Zeppelin, Steve Vai, Satriani,Van Halen)with your dirty hands.

Anyway, as i agree there are some great megadeth songs that were left out, this is a good compilation. Has some good stuff for megadeth new listeners. Also may wanna check out some songs:

Tornado of Souls, Rust in Peace, Lucretia

Killings is my Bussiness.. My Last Words

Countdown to Extinction, Foreclosure of a dream, Ashes in your Mouth, Reckoning Day, Blood of Heroes, Adicted to Chaos

99 Ways to Die, Almost Honest, Use the Man, A secret Place, Vortex, FFF

Insomnia, Ecstasy, Seven, Time (Beginnind and End)

Promises, Return to Hangar, Disconnect, 1000 Times GoodBye

Back in The Day, Die Dead Enough, Kick The Chair

That's something just to get you started, you'll have enough and diverse material to judge whether you like it or not, no one will tell you anything.
