5.0 out of 5 stars Quintessential and classic Maiden! 3 Feb 2012
Format:Audio CD
There's very little to say except that this is classic Maiden at close to the peak of its power. We all know this song, either directly or through legend. The subject matter is about the needless waste of life that was the Crimean War, a pointless conflict that Britain shouldn't have been a part of and foreshadowed its ultimate folly during the next century. Harris' lyrics brilliantly ram this point home and the intensity in which Smith, Murray and Dickinson channel Harris' disappointment is spine tingling. This re-release is gold to any Maiden enthusiast and collector and I urge all fans to add it to theirs as I have to mine!

3.0 out of 5 stars Iron Maiden Live - no surprises 22 Aug 2005
Format:Audio CD
Another day, another Iron Maiden live album. Ho, hum. There must be several hundred of them on the go now, with 'Death On The Road' the next, poorly titled one. Still, Maiden fans will put it in the Top 10, Steve Harris can renew his (newly expensive) West Ham season ticket, and the world will trundle on.
Still, I always liked 'The Trooper', and despite a ropy Bruce vocal performance, the galloping guitars are a treat. For your money, the enhanced CD also has the original album version, which really shows up the previously mentioned ropy Bruce vocal, and a live version of 'Prowler' which may be temporarily exclusive to this release.
The enhanced bit includes 'The Trooper' live, from the forthcoming DVD. 'Death On The Road' - surprise! And you get the original video for the track, which is available on the DVD, 'Visions Of The Beast'.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice treat for the fans 28 Dec 2005
By Metalhead - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This single (Along with the 2005 Number Of The Beast single) is a very nice treat for the fans of the band. The CD, 7" vinyl and 12" picture disc comprise of various tracks from the European Early Days Tour, along with the original recording of The Trooper from Piece Of Mind, and a live version from the album Death On The Road. A very cool (and inexpensive) way to say thanks to the fans.

1.0 out of 5 stars More of the same 20 Nov 2006
By Mario Morera - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Once again, Iron Maiden offers over and over again the same songs they always play. This is noting new. This is nothing interesting. That band just shows no respect for the fans because they offer the same stuff in order to make money. The same tracks live for the 1000000000000 time. If you are a fan, show some respect for yourself and do not buy this. Make the band know they have more songs to offer.
