About this deal

I hope the minimal money you got for this second hand CD minus it's case and the other stuff you decided to take without my permission while damaging my vehicle pays toward your accidental heroin overdose !

Maybe you would be able to grab stuff from cars with your teeth afterwards with having lost the use of your hands to a flashing scimitar ? It is an amalgamation of his most famous works with the band, featuring Eddies from the Piece of Mind, Powerslave, Somewhere in Time and No Prayer for the Dying eras, as well as those from " The Trooper", Live After Death and a redesign of the Killers album cover. I'm probably talking a load of rubbish but they didn't sound dissimilar to a superb band by the name of Rainbow. The two-CD edition contains two songs from the band's 1979 demo tape/EP The Soundhouse Tapes ("Iron Maiden" and "Strange World," of which the latter was previously unreleased).

Indeed, this series of 10 CDs was infinitely more valuable than a greatest-hits compilation, especially for hardcore fans and collectors, but the demand for a single-disc career overview remained. If anyone else fancies a taster CD of the Iron, this one is for you, oooo and try also Live after Death ! The first will get a lot of hate but that is the inclusion of the overly long Rime of the Ancient Mariner. It obviously features a lot of great music but I can't see it appealing to those seeking just the hits. The limited edition also two songs from the band’s 1979 demo tape, The Soundhouse Tapes (“Iron Maiden” and “Strange World,” of which the latter one was previously unreleased).

Iron Maiden achieved veneration and prosperity primarily as an album-oriented band whose propensity for exceeding deadlines and writing too much or too little material often resulted in hasty track selections.

It starts off with the wonderful Virus and continues to go back in time from X-Factor all the way back to the Soundhouse Tapes.Despite my gripes, I still think that Best of the Beast is the best Iron Maiden compilation album and I really can't see my opinion changing very soon. Best of the Beast lacks tracks like Killers, Prowler and a other classics from the first two albums. Nonetheless Iron Maiden have acquired a new fan and I shall definitely be purchasing more of their material from now on. Irrespective of the source, all of our collectables meet our strict grading and are 100% guaranteed.

Condition - This item is in Excellent condition or better (unless it says otherwise in the above description). Inarguably, the simultaneous release of three variations of the same album was an entirely inspired yet predictable move, indicative of the band's newfound depth of awareness regarding modern music consumption and the pre-millennial expansion of metal. X-Factor album and controversy latched itself to the band at every possible chance because of the departure of Bruce Dickinson (Blaze Bayley being the current singer at the time). If your going to turn it up to 11 get some ear phones, it wasn't sociable listened to loud music back then and nothings changed.

The sound quality is very good (a distinctly different remaster of these tracks to those found on the 1998 remastered albums, despite Simon Heyworth being the mastering engineer on both projects). Not only is this song just too long and dull on the Powerslave album, but this rendition is from Live After Death which sounds very thin.

The band have released 41 albums, including 17 studio albums, 13 live albums, four EPs and seven compilations. There was Edward The Great with it's awkward inconsistent track list or the obvious cash grab Somewhere Back In Time. Finally, in 1996, long after the band's imperial phase had ended, a round-up of all their best-known songs was released. The track listing differs slightly between the various editions of the compilation album, but consists mainly of the band's singles and most well-known songs from their 1980–1995 albums. While fluid in the early years of the band, the lineup for most of the band's history has consisted of Harris, lead vocalist Bruce Dickinson, drummer Nicko McBrain, and guitarists Dave Murray, Adrian Smith and Janick Gers.Best of the Beast has long since been out of print and has been "replaced" by Edward the Great in most countries as a greatest hits package for the band.
