2 stars Oh, I 've always loved this cover! It was so unique and outrageous at the time! Nowadays it strikes me as more fumy than scary. Anyway, this single has nothing really interesting, especially if you already bought the Killers album (both tunes are on it). Iron Maiden has done some great singles that had a inreleased song as a b side or, at least, an unreleased live version of some other song. Not the case here. Purgatory is hardlky one of their best songs and the instrumental Genghis Khan is maybe the only interesting track for progsters.

Although well played and produced, Steve Harris and co have done much better things before and after this one. Unless, of course you want to find the original version with the (now) funny cover. For collectors and fans only.
