4 stars This album is some kind of testament of Iron Maiden's first era. Although we all agree that the real treat would begin with their next album, Mainden's first two efforts are really good, 4 stars in a heavy metal perspective.

The original edition of maiden japan was an EP. It didn't leave enough space to appreciate the full power of the band with Dianno. Thanks God the japanese cry loud and a special edition with the full show was released there. These are the tracks of this edition:

1.Wrathchild / 2.Purgatory / 3.Sanctuary / 4.Remember Tomorrow / 5.Another Life (with Clive's drum solo) / 6.Gengis Khan / 7.Killers / 8.Innocent Exile / 9. Twilight Zone / 10.Strange World / 11.Murders in the Rue Morgue / 12.Phantom of the Opera 13.Iron Maiden / 14.Running Free / 15. Transylvania / 16.Drifter / 17.I've Got the Fire

As you can see this is an absolute killer set! I'm a fan of Di'anno's singing, and this is the proof that he did a wonderful job ith the band, no matter what his detractors say (of course, he never more put any material of this quality on the record). So I give 3 stars to the original edition, but a proud 4 stars to the japanese complete set.

BEWARE: this is neither prog nor prog related. Only with a lot of imagination you can see Maiden as a prog metal group, despite their production after "Fear of the dark". NWOBHM at their best is what you get here. Up the irons!
