Megadeth's 'Breadline' is a six-track EP released in 2000 to promote the 'Risk' album, and was exclusive to Japan.

Lucky Japan.

Seriously, what the hell is this abomination? Why do bands allow these remix artist-types to make lame, drum 'n' bass versions of their songs? It's not that I have a problem with any particular genre of music, but if you're going to remix a song, at least make a half decent attempt of it, because these songs are atrocious. How could Dave Mustaine honestly sit there and think "yep, that's what Megadeth fans will love to hear".

I guess this was the bands 'Risk' era anyway, where trying to appeal to larger and more commercial audiences meant that all bets were off and nobody really knew what they were going to do next.

As it is, the song 'Breadline' is pretty decent (I'm one of approximately seven people that actually love the 'Risk' album). It's a fairly standard rock song, with soft verses and heavy choruses. It's easily one of Megadeth's most radio-friendly tracks, but it's probably also one of their most hated by the fans. And did anyone ever actually hear this on the radio?

Other than that one track (a radio edit, no less, and certainly not good enough to save this atrocity), this EP is awful. I have no interest in these techno remixes or whatever they're meant to be, and would much rather just listen to the original tracks.

One for the collectors, who will no doubt own it as begrudgingly as I do.
