3 stars 'Edward The Great' - Iron Maiden (Compilation)

It's a difficult thing to make a great compilation for a band who's career has spanned decades. Iron Maiden is a band with a very heavy, dedicated fanbase, and as great fans will be, they will each have their own, very personalized views on what the band's best moments are. To try to accomodate the whims of millions of people cannot be an easy task. As far as being fan- worthy goes, 'Edward The Great' won't tickle the fancy of many existing fans of the band. Besides some great artwork on the front, alot of these songs will have been heard by fans many times over, and there's alot of songs that would have been so great for this compilation ('Aces High,' to name one of them) that were left out.

For starters however (who aren't nearly as demanding,) it's a for a first look into the band's style and sound. And there's some very cool artwork for the completionists out there!
