2 stars 'The Number Of The Beast' - Dream Theater (3/10)

Even listening to this as a Dream Theater fan, I find myself yearning to listen to the original version of 'Number of the Beast' by Iron Maiden. This is certainly better than the cover they did of 'Master Of Puppets' however. While the cover of 'Master of Puppets' was abysmal and ear- aching, Dream Theater manages to pull off a decent cover of this album. However, it's nothing special, and in no way does it blow my mind.

James LaBries vocals are also a fair step up from the 'Master Of Puppets' cover, and it's impressive to see him to some of the air-raid screams that Dickenson is so renowned for. However, he comes up short it playing Dickenson at his own game.

Nothing special here, but cool to own as a Dream Theater fan, if only as a bragging right.
