3.0 out of 5 stars Cardboard Box! 6 Nov 2012
Ok People,

I refuse to buy this Box. What are we talking 150 by itself, 250 with the first two CLASSIC albums in it.
What the hell is going on? You all know the band the songs and the excellent art work, and you buy it again, WHY?

I have been an avid Maiden fan since 1981, I have various LP's CD's and collections, and loads of so called rarities'. These are mine to keep, but the vinyl I don't play...as it special!

I have purchased the first two picture discs from this new "collection". I cut the plastic just to see the disk, it nothing special, normal and lightweight vinyl in a gatefold sleeve (of which I have not opened). And above all I know like 99.9% of you...it will never be played, I have to ask Why?

Perhaps EMI looking for something but I don't know, all I know is the whole thing disappoints me.
After all we have had CD collections, And other vinyl Collections, we do not need another! Unless it is special. And this is not!

This collection could have been done so much better and with the cardboard box to, a double heavy weight picture disc album in gatefold sleeve for each MONUMENTAL musical achievement, with the B sides and live tracks.
I think I have to leave it up to you, the whole thing is going mad. And I have to say I expected better for Maiden. I will shot off before i say something I regret.

All I need from Maiden, is a new chuffing album!
Just to say, I think the new British Lion album is first class!

All the best Maidenites,

Edd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chill out guys! 13 Dec 2012

I feel I have to write something in response to the more negative reviews here.

Yes £250 is expensive for a box set, but the thing you have to remember is that it didn't cost that much when it was a new release.

I pre-ordered all eight picture discs as soon as they became available on Amazon, and I received an email a few weeks later saying that I could cancel my order of the first two LPs and change it to this box with the albums inside. It cost £40.10, which was actually a couple of quid LESS than just the two LPs alone.

So, there's no rip-off here other than people trying to make a quick buck by selling a second-hand copy for a £200 profit. And that is nothing to do with the band or Amazon.

And yes, of course picture discs don't sound quite as good as black or coloured vinyl, but that's the nature of the beast (ha!).

the mastering on these discs are quit possibly the poorest examples of audio mastering I have ever heard. A complete waste of money. hissing and background noise throughout the LP.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only one regret about buying this set... 21 Dec 2012

Having sold the EMPTY box on a well known auction site for a cool £150.00, my only regret about buying this item is that I didn't buy 20 of them when Amazon notified me they were available. Good to see that in these times of so called recession people still have plenty of money for the essentials!

Five stars is for the music that contains, the picture disc is beautiful, and contains liner notes and photographs that don't have the original album, I recommend this product to all people that love Maiden and to the people that never listened this band, this eight albums for me are the best of the band ever. I think that Iron Maiden gonna be the second part of this with the last albums of the band and it wanna be cool that do someday one box for the singles and for the singles in format cd vinyl replica.

Eu esperava uma caixa mais bem produzida, mas valeu a pena pelo valor e pela raridade que agora ela se encontra. Perfeito para guardar meus Pictures do Iron.
