Hidden Treasures, while mostly an eclectic mix of songs originally published on other albums, the tracks are arranged in ways that flow well.

"No More Mr. Nice Guy", one of Alice Cooper's major hits is performed very well by Megadeth, and, is arguably the best cover on this album. While "99 Ways to Die" - originally published on The Beavis and Butthead Experience - is, in my opinion, the best track on the album. Other strong contestants include "Angry Again", the cover of "Paranoid", and "Breakpoint".

In fact, the lowest rating that I have given to any song on the album is a four out of five.

"Go to Hell", I found more repetitive than I am used to Megadeth's songs being, but not so tedious that I felt compelled to give it a bad rating. "Diadems", while a good song overall, is just not in a style that appeals to me very much.

Hidden Treasures is an excellent collection of music primarily culled from movies and tribute albums that should have something for every Megadeth fan.
