Description

This was my 2nd Iron Maiden CD (first being Brave New World), and I was quite impressed. I've been a die hard fan since I heard Brave New World, but I hadn't heard much of their older work until I got this CD. Since then, i've owned every CD of theirs in one way or another, and I must say, the songs are well chosen. Although they didn't have every one of their good songs on it, what do you expect for only one CD? Ed Hunter was a great compilation, but it was 2 CDs.

The entire CD is excellent, there isn't one song that shouldn't be on there. It includes some of their most notorious songs such as The Number of the Beast, The Trooper, 2 Minutes to Midnight, and Can I Play With Madness? It even includes some of Blaze Bayley's work (Futureal, Man On The Edge). It ends on a high note with the intense rock in rio version of Fear of the Dark. What a great CD, my only real beef is that I think they could've fit a few more songs onto it. Other than that, pick this CD up today!
