Half Notes: Megadeth – Greatest Hits (2005)

by Tom Johnson

When a band has more than one “best of” in their catalog, it’s usually because one skimped on a portion of the band’s catalog that was really pretty signficant. This one, however, only fills in a few gaps of the previous best-of, Capitol Punishment, while mirroring a lot of the other material. They at least put together a special package, if you’re willing to pay extra, that includes a DVD with 6 or 7 tracks of live footage, a “mega mix” video (footage for this is taken from all of the band’s previous videos), and a glimpse of the two-DVD retrospective that came out later that fall. The band’s legacy would have been much better commemorated with a two-disc best of where each album could have been represented by more than just the singles. That is, of course, the name — “greatest hits” — but it really should have been so much more.
