Dave Mustaine has finally given the Legions of Megadeth followers the single most requested CD of all. A compilation of the bands greatest pieces all in one easy place to find them. There is no questioning the genius of Mustaine when it comes to putting together a great metal song, and he has many of them which make this piece a welcome addition to the catalog. Before this arrived the closest example of this we would have would be with the live CD/DVD “Rude Awakening” and the 2000 released “Capitol Punishment”. While the older hits piece was good and shares similar numbers from the new package, the live piece in particular had an amazing selection and was almost as good as a career compilation. It served as a better example until now. However, it with “Back To The Start” we have more tracks included and a little cleaner production than its predecessor. For me this was a plus since it included almost all of the Megadeth tracks that I have enjoyed over the years. Dave made sure to have a great amount of material on this piece and with 17 tracks you cannot go wrong. This CD is even perfect tailgate party music. There is nothing better than kicking back some beers with your Friends at a show, and cranking up the Megadeth (that is provided you are legal drinking age of course).
