My step Dad played me some Megadeth the other day and I was instantly hooked. I love a lot of heavy metal guitar rifs and this album is full of it. Instead of buying multiple albums I thought I would start with this greatest hits CD and I would recommend this to anyone new to this band. It is a great place to start, there is a lot of great songs to enjoy.

Megadeth: Dave Mustaine (vocals, guitar); Chris Poland, Jeff Young, Al Pitrelli, Marty Friedman (guitar); David Ellefson (bass instrument, background vocals); Jimmy DeGrasso, Nick Menza, Chuck Behler, Gar Samuelson (drums).

Recording information: 1986 - 2004.

In the acclaimed documentary SOME KIND OF MONSTER, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, an original member of Metallica, emotionally conveys how it feels living in the shadow of his more successful former bandmates. Of course, leading what is arguably the second-greatest act of thrash metal's heyday isn't exactly a tough lot in life, especially when it still involves selling millions of records. Even at the commercial peak of 1992's COUNTDOWN TO EXTINCTION, Megadeth never watered down its sonic trademarks--Mustaine's sneering vocals and blazing guitar work, always backed by fierce, complex rhythms--a point reinforced by this excellent 17-song anthology. Classic Megadeth is well represented here--most notably with the stomping, bass-heavy "Peace Sells" and the sci-fi mini-epic "Hangar 18." But GREATEST HITS also leaves a generous amount of room for the group's finest latter-day tunes. With remastered sound and a well-selected track listing, this collection is an ideal introduction to the potent speed metal of Megadeth.
