    excellent

    awesome cd. really shows iron maiden can kick serious tail. the only problem is its missing two of my favorite songs: Flight of Icarus and Where Eagles Dare, which are awesome, so if you buy this, try to pick up those records as well.

    The best of Maiden

    Edward the great might be a good introduction to one of the world's finest bands but if you want your maiden served up with variety then 1996's Best of The beast is a must have. It's simply Iron Maiden at they're brillant best.

    Maiden Heaven!

    Iron maiden essentials! It just lacks some of my fave tracks though, but for a newbie, this one's a great intro to Rock and Roll!
