Megadeth : Hidden Treasures
Megadeth had some fairly memorable tunes stashed away onto various movie
soundtracks and luckily someone had the idea to present them here for us. To me, the
stronger cuts were the movie-inspired ones and not the covers.
"No More Mr. Nice Guy" is a worthy successor of its Alice
Cooper original and "Paranoid" is played quite competently and
every bit as strong as the Black Sabbath original. "Go to Hell"
is errie and atmospheric, while "Diadems" contains great accoustic
sections. However, the prime cuts on this album are the Beavis and Butthead influenced,
and Rust in Peace-like "99 Ways to Die," and the
gloomy "Angry Again." Why these two tracks didn't make a full length is beyond
Hidden Treasures has some great overlooked gems that many people probably
aren't familiar with. 'Not just another Megadeth album to fill up space
between the years. A good idea to produce, as many great songs are here that didn't make a
full-length 'Deth album..and they're all here in one deal!
