“From Fear To Eternity is a chance for these new fans of the band to explore Iron Maiden's rich history, with the highlights of their last eight studio albums distilled into this handy collection, which follows 2009's compilation of their earlier work, the 1980-1990 Somewhere Back In Time album.”
This a fine track list here on these two discs, and you always no you get quality with Iron Maiden, with many of my favorite tracks from the last eight albums being included, but I do have one gripe. I wish that they would have either of included the original studio versions of the live tracks, which tend to be the ones that originally featured Bruce Dickinson’s short term replacement Blaze Bayley on vocals, or even better still, get Bruce to re-record the vocals for the said tracks, as I find that the sudden appearance of a live track kind of spoils the flow and feel of the cd for me.
But that gripe to one side, and this collection is a great set, and a fine place for new fans to introduce themselves and get acquainted with the last few years of Maiden history, it also had me digging out my Iron Maiden Cds and giving them a good run through!
