The box is a tight fit but you CAN fit all of the records in the box. Here's how - put all eight albums together and slide the box over them. It's the only way you can get them in the box and you'll need to take all of them out of the box when you want to play one of them.

I can't comment on the sound quality of the Vinyl as I didn't open any of the albums. I sent this Boxset (and the first 6 LPs) back to Amazon as the Box is only big enough to house 6 LPs. Putting it politely .... what a monumental mess up!!! After the recent poor quality Maiden Picture Disc Boxset, I was looking forward to this 180g Black Vinyl Boxset. I am reliably informed by YouTube Vinyl Community friends over the Water that the US Box is bigger and CAN hold all 8 LPs (including the two Gatefold Sleeves) and it's just this European version that is smaller....

Oh well, like most of the Maiden fans who play Vinyl, I'll have to stick to my original issues (which are great)

As a fan who has never owned these before on vinyl this box set is the perfect way to kick off an Irons vinyl collection. I have given a listen to all three albums and am really happy with the quality. These are pristine pressings on solid, black heavyweight vinyl with quality sleeve reproductions and proper inner sleeves, antistatic, poly lined and black.
The collector's box is nice enough - a tidy minimalistic front, with album covers and track listings on the back, all on thick red card that shouldn't scuff easily and will sit nicely on the shelf. I'm not even going to review the music in depth - if you're here, you know what you're in for.

Why 4* rather than 5*? I am disappointed (but not surprised) that the rest of the collection will be coming out in the £19-£28 price range. It's also a great idea to accompany these reissues with reproductions of the singles, but again the price shift for the next batch is around the 9.99 mark - sorry, too much for a 7" reissue, however great the band is.

Finally, I think that it's a missed opportunity to not have included some kind of commemorative hardback book in a collector set like this, a retrospective of the iconic art, or interviews with the band reflecting on the albums. Still, at the end of the day, it's about the music and I'm well pleased with these pressings. I sympathise with those who are disappointed that these come out so soon after the ill-received picture discs - my advice for the casual listener would be to try and shift those on ebay and pick up this set - collectors will inevitably end up with both. Gotta fuel that plane somehow, right Bruce?

If you're buying this you'll already love the music and the great Black Vinyl reissues, so this is just for information. If you have the smaller red box Email with name and address and asking for the larger Red Box to: customerserviceteam@warnermusic.com They will send you a slightly larger Red Box for all the vinyl to fit in. Cheers everyone.

Excellent presentation, and new 180g black Vinyl quality superb. A must for any iron maiden fan keen to build their collection.

[EDIT] - Whilst I maintain this is a nice presentation box, upon completing the remaining of the collection I have discovered it will not comfortably fit all 8 albums it is intended for (if you could somehow sqeeze them in I think you will be at risk of never getting them out again and damaging something). I believe this may be a manufacturing error not taking into account that all the new reissues of these 8 great albums are now on 180g vinyl, so are therefore almost 1.5 times thicker than the originals. As this box now has lost its function to me (holding only 7 of the albums instead of 8) I have dropped my previous rating from 5* to 3*.

Before I get bashed by diehard Maiden fans, this is not a review of the individual albums, which are brilliant and are produced in excellent quality vinyl here.
This is a review of the box set product as a whole.

Anyone who like myself, now owns all 8 LPs which the box is supposed to hold will already have discovered a massive problem.
The flaw? You guessed it... There is no way to fit all 8 albums in the box!

The sad thing is, it's really obvious what happened. The packaging designers didn't actually test a mockup with the actual albums and they sent the box into production based on having space for 8 standard LPs. No-one thought to tell them that Piece Of Mind was a gatefold or that Live after Death was a double album.

Sorry, but a company the size of EMI letting this one passed quality control?
Really out of order guys!
Replacement boxes should be supplied free of charge.
That will never happen obviously, but it should.

Well I guess on the plus side, I can now use the box to hide my 'bongo mags' from the missus ;)

POSITIVE THINGS.
Great item. Finally those beauties are available to the general public. Replicas from the original issues in hard cardboard sleeve, innersleeves etc. I have the feeling that drawings are not that clear as the originals but you can only notice it if you put them aside. New fresh copies for every Maiden fan, bright colours and great sound similar to the originals.

NEGATIVE THINGS
I wish that the artworks were clearer like the originals but thats not really that bad.
The box is not that big for all of the albums. Manufacturer got probably confused because 2 of the albums are gatefold and they need more space. If you take out Life After Death you can have all the other inside.
