3 stars The primary concern for rating music here at Prog Archives is, of course, its "progressiveness". This "Sanctuary" single by Iron Maiden, one of the most innovative bands in metal history, ranks fairly low on the progressive scale. This is pretty straightforward metal. I like Paul Di'Anno's singing, even though he is a very different singer from Bruce Dickinson. As others have said, Paul's voice fits Iron Maiden's musical style at this point.

This collection of primarily live music really demonstrates the talents of Clive Burr and Steve Harris. The guitarists, on the other hand, don't seem to be in sync. A listener would certainly expect better from Dave Murray. Of the three songs on this single, the title track would be my favorite. The sound quality is adequate. In conclusion, this is a decent listen if you're already a fan of Iron Maiden. If I wasn't, this wouldn't convince me.
