The 1995 EP Hidden Treasures collects the various tracks that Megadeth contributed to soundtracks and tribute albums throughout the early 1990's. Here's what you get:

1. No More Mr. Nice Guy - This one is a cover of the Alice Cooper classic, and comes from the soundtrack to the movie Shocker.

2. Breakpoint - This is an original Megadeth track, and comes from the soundtrack to the movie Super Mario Brothers.

3. Go To Hell - Another original Megadeth track, this time from the Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey soundtrack.

4. Angry Again - Another original Megadeth song. This one is from the Last Action Hero soundtrack.

5. 99 Ways to Die - Yet another Megadeth original, this time from the Beavis & Butthead Experience CD.

6. Paranoid - An ultra-fast cover of the Black Sabbath classic, taken from the Sabbath tribute album Nativity in Black.

7. Diadems - Another original Megadeth song. This one comes from the soundtrack to the movie Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight.

8. Problems - A Sex Pistols cover that is exclusive to this EP.

This is a nice collection of material that saves Megadeth fans from tracking down half a dozen otherwise crappy albums (though to be fair, the Last Action Hero soundtrack was pretty good). I fully expected these songs to be included on the recent Megadeth remasters, but to my surprise they were not. Hidden Treasures remains the best way to get these songs. It's too bad the disc is out of print.

NOTE: There is a Japanese import version of Hidden Treasures that contains a few demos as bonus tracks. They're just demo versions of existing Megadeth tracks, so they may not be worth the Japanese disc's hefty price tag.

This fan pleasing C.D. is comprised of eight "hidden" Megadeth gems, which are rarities, covers, and b-sides/songs from soundtracks. If you're new to Megadeth, I wouldn't recommend starting here, but every song on here is enjoyable, making this a great and essential inclusion in your collection. The album opener, "No More Mr. Nice Guy" is an Alice Cooper cover, and it is quite catchy. Next, "Breakpoint" (from the "Super Mario Brothers" movie) has four nice, but very brief guitar solos, and "Go To Hell" (from the movie "Bill And Ted's Bogus Adventure") which kind of sounds like a b-side from "Countdown to Extinction," has a great, five part solo. But "Angry Again" is the real highlight, here. It's from the "Last Action Hero" soundtrack and is one of Megadeth's most recognizable songs, because it is also very catchy. This song (which remains a staple of Megadeth's live shows) also has a nice solo (this one has four parts to it). "99 Ways To Die" has another guitar solo which flares up, and uses (what sounds like) arpeggio guitars. "Paranoid" originally appeared on the first Black Sabbath tribute album, and this Megadeth cover is probably the best version of this song ever recorded (aside from the original, of course). "Diadems" is taken from "Tales From the Crypt Presents Demon Knight" soundtrack. This cut is rather unremarkable (if you ask me), except for the speed change around the middle. Finally, "Problems" is quite fast and catchy. The only problem with this EP is that it's short (less than half an hour long!) Plus, it's pretty rare now-a-days, so I'd order it online if you don't already own it. All in all, however much "Hidden Treasures" costs, it's worth it if you're a Megadeth fanatic and/or collector.

Megadeth has certainly had a successful career in the metal world. Not quite up to the level of Mustaine's alma mater Metallica but pretty close. This CD is a collection of tracks that were never on any of their albums but still all good songs. Here's a breakdown:

Track 1 - No More Mr. Nice Guy (Alice Cooper cover), First appearance - Shocker soundtrack
This song is a good opening track. It is not as fast and heavy as Megadeth typically was in this era but then again, it is a cover, a very decent cover at that. It's notable also that this is the Rust in Peace lineup but they didn't yet have Marty Friedman in the fold, leaving Mustaine to tackle the solo, which was actually pretty technically proficient.

Track 2 - Breakpoint, First Appearance - Super Mario Bros soundtrack
Yes, that God-awful movie adapted from the wildly popular video game. Everyone saw it and hated it. I bet you're saying "I don't remember hearing Megadeth during the movie." Well, neither do I but in any case, this is actually a really good song. The main riff has some great low E string galloping, accompanied with a fast not overly gratuitous double bass backbeat. Then Friedman's solo kicks in and it's Mega-heaven. Surprised this one didn't make it onto an album. It was a standout for sure.

Track 3 - Go to Hell, First Appearance - Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey soundtrack
Another solid track. I like the bass buildup, into the main riff. The verse has Mustaine basically speaking the words, ala Peace Sells and Sweating Bullets but the real payoff is the Friedman/Mustaine solo trading off before the ending of the song. Ok, have you figured out yet that I'm a guitar player?
