Essentially a repackaged version of the band's live album, Music of Mass Destruction, Anthrax has its live fury released as a value-priced compilation with this entry into the Extended Versions series. Missing the tracks "Refused to Be Denied" and "Inside Out," Extended Versions is a slightly truncated version of its predecessor, offering all of the rowdiness of the original while running 10 minutes shorter. For the casual fan, the missing tracks won't make much of a difference, but Anthrax diehards will want to head straight to the source and grab up the original. ~ Gregory Heaney
