Peace Sells But Will Yet Another Megadeth Retrospective?

(antiMusic) It seems that Megadeth is definitely following the KISS formula of "Same Songs / Different Cover" compilation releases. Or at least Capital EMI is because they have announced yet another Megadeth retrospective. Of course they are tossed in a couple of live "rarities" to lure you into buying the very same songs for the third or fourth time. And even those rarities are probably already in the hands of the Megafans since they've been released elsewhere. Here is the announcement:

Following the successful 2007 release of the coveted 4-CD+DVD Warchest box set, Megadeth is back with a vengeance with Anthology: Set The World Afire. The career-spanning 2-CD and digital collection, to be released September 30th by Capitol/EMI, features Megadeth's top hits and fan favorites, a previously unreleased demo and two rare concert recordings.

Anthology: Set The World Afire is loaded with 35 electrifying tracks, among them Megadeth's top hits, including 'Trust', 'A Tout Le Monde', 'Insomnia' and 'Train Of Consequences'. Also included are rare 1992 concert recordings of 'Peace Sells' and 'Symphony of Destruction', previously available only in limited release, the latter having never been released in the U.S.
