Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Hot on the heels of the speed-metal dandies' first-ever live retrospective, Rude Awakening, comes this most unusual (contract fulfilling?) release. Featuring six previously unreleased live songs captured in November 2001 during what's described as the band's last concerts, Still Alive and Well concludes with an additional six songs lifted wholesale from 2001's The World Needs a Hero, the group's last studio recording. The live tracks ("Time/Use the Man," "Conjuring," "In My Darkest Hour," "Sweating Bullets," "Symphony of Destruction," and "Holy Wars") are up to snuff--fast, bruising, and furious--but of little interest to anyone other than die-hard fans, who doubtless already own The World Needs a Hero. --Kim Hughes

2.0 out of 5 stars What the Heck? September 20, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Stupid Me, I picked up this CD without reading the track listing before buying. I thought it was just made up of unreleased live tracks. I eventually found out while reading the track listing in my car that half of it is unreleased live tracks, while the rest is old material previously released on The World Needs A Hero album. So Why Bother? Why didn't they release the rare and hard to find tracks like DUKE NUKEM, CROWN OF WORMS, ONE THING, COMING HOME, NEW WORLD ORDER, SYMPHONY OF DESTRUCTION (THE GRISTLE MIX), and TRUST (ECW INSTRUMENTAL REMIX) along with the live tracks. Those tracks are harder than heck to come by, so they should've released them instead! AGHHHHHH Only buy if your a completist. Hopefully Megadeth will release another album sometime in the future with all of their rare tracks much in the vein of Hidden Treasures. We can only hope.

2.0 out of 5 stars De ja vu! September 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD
First off i'll start with the albums praise. The two new songs "Time/Use the Man" and "The Conjuring" are stellar live tracks, especially the latter. But other than those two the rest of the cd sounds vaguely familiar. Well that must be because the other live songs are on "Rude Awakening" and half the cd is off of "The World Needs a Hero." If i hadn't heard all this before it would have made a great album. My guess is that this cd was mandatory to fufill Megadeth's contract with Sanctuary. So if your looking to start your DethCollection, start at the first and work your way down the list.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rehash September 18, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I've stuck with Megadeth ever since I was first introduced to them when they released Countdown to Extinction. I bought all their previous and future albums from then on. For me, they were considered the best heavy band ever in terms of consistency and pure art form. They were original all the way.
This changed somewhere along the lines of their break-up with Capitol. They released their first ever greatest hits album. They then did only one original album with their new label and started rehashing old material in the form of new, modified music, knowing full well that hard core fans would buy it. They released their first album, digitally remastered and then went on to produce their first live album, which consisted of old material. Lead singer, guitarist and founder of the band gets injured and without notice the whole band just dismatles to the surprise of all of us fans. For me that was a dark day in history. I was actually mourning the loss of a great metal band that had a great influence in the heavy metal world.
The release of this album justifies the downward spiral Megadeth has been going through for sometime now. What is it about producing an album filled with half live tracks and the other half of material already released in the studio? To make matters worse, only the first two songs of the live tracks are not included in RUDE AWAKENING. It just did not make any sense.
A number of people speculated that it was Megadeth's way to fulfill their contract with Sanctuary. If what I remember is true, then the band has signed in for 5 albums, one of which could be a compilation. Putting into consideration their double album, 4 albums have already been produced. That leaves them with just one more album before Megadeth goes away.

Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge fan of Megadeth, and have been for a few years; I'd even go as far as saying I'm a completist (I own both the original AND the reissue of KILLING IS MY BUSINESS...). However, this is one Megadeth "album" that I will never waste my money on.
Even more absurd than most so-called "best-of" collections, STILL, ALIVE...AND WELL? is simply pointless. We have several tracks from one of the best albums from one of the best thrash acts ever, THE WORLD NEEDS A HERO, and two--count 'em, TWO--unreleased live tracks. Okay...why?
Indeed, I'll agree with other fans, this COULD have been another HIDDEN TREASURES, but instead it is a waste of money and time.
Trust me, just get THE WORLD NEEDS A HERO and as for the live tracks, you're not missing much. If they're THAT important to you, just look for them as downloads somewhere.
LUCKILY, Megadeth has re-formed, with a new bassist and drummer, and a suprising return of the almighty Chris Poland on guitars. Dave's arm is all better, and he's refreshed...and determined. NEW ALBUM COMING SOON!
Peace.

2.0 out of 5 stars Use the man indeed. September 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Well, if you haven't figured it out by now, this isn't exactly a "new" Megadeth album. What it's supposed to be is unreleased tracks (throwaways?) from "Rude Awakening" and some tracks from "The World Needs a Hero".
The best of the live tracks is easily "Time/Use the Man", whose inclusion almost justifies buying this. Yes, I am a big Megadeth fan, have been for years. But, I bought this CD not knowing what songs were on it ... and was more than a little disapointed when I found out that half of the album are tracks from "The World Needs a Hero" which I had purchased days before.
That said, this is for die-hard fans only, and that's just for the unreleased tracks from "Rude Awakening". Save your money and buy "The World Needs a Hero", it's much better than this.
