I am actually disappointed in the item. I know I am paying for his signature and I already have the album. But I must have gotten the last one he signed and he had writers cramp or something. Because his signature does not look anything like the other items I have that has been signed. I can make out his first name, but its not written like he normally writes.. He must have been hauling A** writing his name on these.. Only way you can tell its him is the Anarchy sign.. I am disappointed, since this item was for my wife for Christmas and she is a HUGE Megadeth fan and has signed stuff.. Oh well

This is without a doubt the best Megadeth collection out there (for under $40). These are some of Mustaine's greatest work. If you like Megadeth and don't own this, you are missing out on some great music. (By the way I thought I'd mention that it also comes on CD, not just on the internet. You can find it at Target, Wal-Mart, or F.Y.E to name a few.)

Back to the Start is the subtitle of this collection of Megadeth musings and this release certainly does what it says on the tin.

Firstl this does well because it pretty much is a best of. How many times have you grabbed yourself and 'essential' or a 'best of' or 'greatest hits' that is nothing of the sort? But here we have stuff like Wake Up Dead, In My Darkest Hour, Peace Sells etc right through to mid years genius such as Holy Wars...., Hangar 18 to later stuff like Trust as well as Angry Again. A cursory glance at the track listing will confirm for you that this is a pretty solid affair, only glaring omission to my mind is Killing Is My Business.

As a career summary up to this point this is a very useful purchase. The newcomer or casual fan can buy it with certainty. Long term fans such as myself probably own just about everything here but even for us it's not a bad buy. Though in fairness it must be said that there have been a number of best ofs and live sets issued under the Megadeth banner in the early to mid 00's so if you've already got one you probably wouldn't buy another would you..

What clinched the deal for me was the DVD disc that accompanies the audio content. The video for Kill the King was new to me and the prospect of some live cuts from a gig in Denver, Colorado was also interesting. And it is fun in a way to see how Mustaines henchmen of '99 go about interpreting this batch of Mega-tunes. My personal two cents worth is that Megadeth should be seen live in person as opposed to live on your TV screen. Having seen the 'deth live and also having met Mustaine in person he has a definite x factor about him that drives the whole band. And I've yet to hear or see this captured (except perhaps for a limited edition live disc that came out with the initial pressing of Youthanasia).

But enough of that. In summation this is pretty much the best 'best of' package going around as at it's release and covers up to but not including The System Has Failed.

As most here know, Megadeth is my favorite band. That being said I won't hold them to perfection like most fan boys do. So I will state, this is a good place to start if you're intersted in Megadeth. This isn't the "Greatest Hits" its simply the most popular ones. With Peace Sells, Symphony of Destruction, Holy Wars, and Trust all on the same album you get the idea that this is an overview of Megadeth and how their sound can change. But for a greatest hits album, it is sort of poor. 1, some of the early material should have been on here example: Last Rites Loved To Deth, Killing Is My Business (you know get some of the anger that started Megadeth and fueled Dave's desire to be the fastest) 2. More Rust In Peace, if you like thrash or not you can not deny the fact that Rust In Peace is their most technical and most mature album at that point in their career. 3, get rid of Kill The King, Price Of Darkness, and Dread and Fugitive mind. Now some people would say "It can't all be thrash!!" And okay you're right, these songs are in this album for the fact to show the band has melody and a nice commerical sound. If they really wanted to do that, Dave and the guys should have borrowed from Youthansia and possibly Cryptic Writings, but leave Risk and The World Needs A Hero alone. Its a "Greatest Hits" remember? Overall, if you have never heard of Megadeth this album is for you. If you have heard from them and want to hear a good overview of most of their work I recomend, Warchest (yes you may have to pay a little more money) but overall this is a good starter album to peak your intrest.

I'm a huge Megadeth fan who loves most every thing they have out. Therefore, to say that this album is lacking, or full of bad songs would be wrong of any fan of the bands music. I do however have a gripe about this album, and it is this... When I heard they were doing another greatest hits release I was excited because I expected it to be like a "Disc 2" to Capital Punishment. When I saw the track list I was disappoitned to see that most of the songs were already on their first greatest hits album. What is the point of relasing the same songs twice? I knew that I wouldn't get lucky enough to find songs from the bands latest 2 studio releases, "The World Needs a Hero" and the surprisingly unbelievable "System Has Failed." Given that it was a Capital release I at least expected an entirely different tracklist than Capital Punishment. So, for my own amusement, I came up with my own tracklist for this album. This is more along the lines of what I expected to see...

1. Skin o' my Teeth

2. Go to Hell

3. Prince of Darkness

4. I'll Get Even

5. Countdown to Extinction

6. She-Wolf

7. Good Mourning/Black Friday

8. A Secret Place

9. Mechanix

10. Insomnia

11. The Killing Road

12. Tornado of Souls

13. Breadline

14. The Killing Road

* If I could also choose songs from "TWNAH" and "TSHF" they would be...

15. Promises

16. Return to Hangar

17. Die Dead Enough

18. Blackmail the Universe

19. Of Mice and Men

Who knows...Maybe next time!!!

It's a great CD jampacked full of Megadeth's most brutal songs. My only complaint is that they didn't put "Sleepwalker" on there.

If you're a Megadeth fan, this CD is a must-have!

Great album! If you're not yet a Megadeth fan but you've heard good things about them, then I would suggest purchasing Back to the Start.....you will be a fan after the first three songs.
