The album is a recopilation of Iron Maidens greats hits. The double version of the disc is very good, but the one disc version of the album does not includ very good songs like The Phantom of the Opera among other songs.

this one of the best albums of my life!!

From: MaidenWV Date: May 4, 2004 at 11:56
There's too many great Maiden songs to make a greatest album. Just buy'em all.

From: Guiche Date: June 3, 2004 at 18:22
what song do you tink is the best one of Maiden??

From: Date: September 28, 2004 at 14:24
Flight of The Icarus and Prowler are both not on this disc which makes it a waste of money in my opinion, buy all the albums and make a new greatist hits. Heres how it should go: 1.Run To The Hills 2.Flight of The Icarus 3.Can I Play W/ Madness 4.Number Of The Beast 5.The Trooper 6.Running Free (LIVE) 7.Phantom of The Opera 8.Prowler 9.Man On The Edge 10.Virus 11.Infinite Dreams 12.Be Quick or Be Dead 13.Iron Maiden 14.Hallowed Be Thy Name

whoever posted the last comment, thanks, I downloaded and burned the cd with your suggested track listing, and gave to my buddy, he loved it

Come on, I can make a better "greatest hits" listing than that. In fact, I will, and I will post it here for you in the next few days.

Omitting Di'Anno's era was not fair in here,they should have put some of the songs he sang but...anyway this album rocks even with the 2 or 3 songs included with Blaze(a character less in importance than Paul's IMHO)...the compilation's still pretty worthy tough...100/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: August 11, 2014 at 17:43
There was a two-disc version of this, that ran backward through the discography, which did include some DiAnno stuff. I think it may have been a Euro import.

Thanks 4 that info Doghouse Reilly
