5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 10 April 2005
Why does everyone insist that Dickenson is better than DiAnno, cos while NOTB, POM etc are excellent Albums - in my opinion DiAnno is so much better. This album is awesome, and Maiden completely lost that East End rock band feel once DiAnno left.
Excellent.

The Wild Ones is the most underestimated Rock album of all time, sits alongside all the classics for me. Lethal (while not as good) is excellent too - so for the money this is a complete steal.

Seriously buy it! When the Rejects moved back to punk, it was a sad day for quality rock.

However it is well writen, and an interesting… Read more
