Another and decent "best of" but obviously missing many great tracks as it has only 16, you need 2 or 3 CD's to cover all their great tracks, sadly there is no definitive "best of" that I know of, but others worth looking at are:
*Somewhere Back In Time: The Best Of: 1980-1989:
*From Fear to Eternity: The Best of 1990-2010:
*Ed Hunter:
*Edward The Great - Greatest Hits:
*Best Of The Beast [Limited Edition] YES CONFUSING, same title as the CD under review, EVEN THE SAME COVER PHOTO, but 2 CD's and rarer, so expensive, see ASIN: B000024NDC, again no track listing but it maybe the same as ASIN: B000006JQ5 which is on amazon.com site.
*Greatest Hits 2 Cd SET currently listed on amazon.com see B003LNAXQY, I have also found it on ebay, from Russia, like China, a well known supplier of non legit goods. I also found a few more suspicious double CD's there too.

Right then, this was my preconceptions of Iron Maiden before I heard this CD. Mullets, leather, ridiculous riffs, screaming and all the other stereotypical "old skool" rock images.
Well they've been well and truely blown away! Here is a CD that manages to combine ball clenching vocals, gut wrenching riffs and lyrics that are thoughtful as they are direct.
It may not be for everyone, but if your taste in music is better than average buy this!

A few years ago, I decided that my CD collection wasn't as broad as I'd like it to be so I headed out to buy some albums from different genres. I hadn't heard any Maiden before but I picked up Best of the Beast to have something in the metal genre. Since hearing this CD I have bought every other Iron Maiden album, joined the fan club and am looking for an opportunity to get to a concert sometime soon.
If you want to get into Iron Maiden or are just mildly interested in hearing them, BUY THIS ALBUM. It'll change your life ;-)

Ok, I'll admit it. I used to HATE Iron Maiden. But I heard a cover of Hallowed Be Thy Name on the best of Cradle Of Filth album, and I loved the song. So, I thought I would invest in this Best Of The Beast. I am SO glad I did. The guitar work is breathtaking, and the songs amazing. If you love metal, but think that Maiden are too soft, or whatever, put aside your doubts and embrace one of the very best metal bands of all time. Before you know it you will have a HUGE collection of Maiden albums. Outstanding.

Until I bought this I had no Iron Maiden in my collection. Am I sad or what? I Can now understand why this band has a huge following. I'm probably talking a load of rubbish but they didn't sound dissimilar to a superb band by the name of Rainbow. Nonetheless Iron Maiden have acquired a new fan and I shall definitely be purchasing more of their material from now on. This album has really whet my appetite.

Having been purely into Punk Rock for a seemingly endless ammount of time, I expanded my horizons with Black Sabbath, Metallica and with this album - Iron Maiden. Needless to say, they are amazing! Their music is exhilerating and melodic whilst their lyrics and choice of subject matter are quite frankly amazing. Undoubtedly (for me) the best track here is 'The number of the beast', and is probably my favourite song ever. Forget image, forget style - Iron Maiden are truly the best band ever, simply for their music (and sense of humour ;)). After 20 years, this music remains ageless - unlike all the 'mainstream' bands out there. If you like Punk, Metal or Heavy rock, I gurantee you'll love this album. Buy it now!

Well, now it would seem this is an earlier version of "Edward The Great" what do i think of it, well in my opnion it is really good but, not as good as it could have been. It does have some brilliant songs, no question about it but, after buying a got myself a cop of the special edition and it has 27 tracks instead of 16 so you could do better with that, but there we go, if not why not buy "Edward The Great"
