I love Megadeth. One of my all-time favorite bands. I don't understand what the hell this is about. I know the Japanese CD market sucks, full of piracy and all, but this is just very redundant. The songs are just Cryptic Writings songs with extra guitars and no vocals. The extra guitars aren't even all that great! It's just a whole bunch of nonsense. It would have been a much better deal if it was more than just Cryptic Writings material, AND extended the songs to include new solos and what not. The possibilities could have been greater, but what can you do?

Anyhow, the songs themselves sound almost like on the record. Obviously, if you don't like Cryptic, this ain't for ya. It's pretty boring though, and for 20 minutes, you begin to think that it was a waste of time putting this in your CD player when you could have slipped in your copy of Cryptic Writings and listen to the real song. Pretty lame.
