4 stars I haven't heard the original Iron Maiden album, so I can't compare it with this nor say how good the "covers" are. However, I find this album enjoyable. The thing is there are many annoying songs here (about half of the songs I like a lot and half of them are a bit annoying, though still good). Most of the album is very similar between one song and the other, mostly Heavy Metal, except for Gangland, which doesn't have as much metal as the rest, and has a lot of piano (still, the song wouldnt really qualify as a soft song nor a ballad. My favourite songs here are Children of the Damned, 22 Acacia Avenue and Run to the Hills. However, for me the very best is Hallowed be thy name, and it's the one that's closer to Prog Metal. So I give 3.5 stars for this one, rounded up to 4.
