Classic stuff and really who needs to read a review of this master however if you are just getting into the band this is the perfect introduction into the world or Maiden.

With tracks suchas Run to the Hills
The Prisoner and Hallowed be thy name you have straight away gathered a number of all time classic tracks.
Clive plays the Tubbs on this outing and there is a fantastic array of feels and groves so one for the drummers out there.

Be warned once you buy this it will be difficult to stop with other top selling albums such as Powerslave ,Seventh Son of A Seventh Son and Brave New World .

We must not forget that the earlier offerings from the band include the unbeaten art work from Mr Derek Riggs who is really the 6th member of the band back in the eighties as most collectors just could not help getting their little mits on all that good Eddie stuff and rings.

The Remastered version of the CD which was released back in 1998 receives mixed reviews due to sound clipping concerns however this really depends on what you are playing through .
The re-release is a picture CD with an extra track Total Eclipse and more pages to the booklet however it does suffer from loudness loosing some off the top end .
The choice is then yours a little crisper from the original release or a little flatter from the newer release.
Or a fantastic sound from the original LP.

A new singer, a new album. I'll be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of Dickinson's voice, I find him sometimes too "whiny" and live he struggled to hit some of the high notes I thought. Though I still like him, I just preferred Di'anno. This is strongest of the Dickinson era Maiden, the songs keep this as one of the best albums recorded. The last album that featured Clive Burr.

Definitely the best album by Iron Maiden. I am no super fan, and although I have been listening to rock music and heavy metal for 26 years, I had never previously bought any Maiden CDs. I heard this on Dr Mosh (Radio 2), and remembered how fantastic Number Of The Beast actually is. I bought it along with several other Maiden CDs and am now waiting for their next UK tour!
