3.0 out of 5 stars Same Old Song and Dance, July 19, 2005
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!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally some good, hard rock, December 10, 2004
This review is from: Chuck (Audio CD)
I have never been a sum 41 fan. I would like a song here and there, in particular, "Still Waiting." I heard "We're all to Blame" in the record store where I work and thought, "Man, this rocks." I checked out the rest of the cd and it did not let me down. Another one of my favorites is "Bitter End." It took me back to the days when Metal was good. Some say that a lot of it sounds like Metallica. Well, since Metallica is the best band in music history, I would say that to be a compliment. Besides, don't we all have influences. Early Metallica sounds a great deal like Diamond Head, but no body accuses them of ripping off their songs. Also, as a die-hard Metallica fan, I took the song "Bitter End" to be a tribute to all the great metal Metallica has provided us over the years. The song features replicated riffs of St. Anger, Batter, Blackened, THrough the Never, and even some Master of Puppets. Bottom line is, this cd is a great rock album from start to finish. The melodic harmonies and crunching power riffs accompanied by the forceful vocals speak conviction and tell me that these guys really have something to say. Check it out!
