This is the Re-issue version of "Powerslave" with extra enhanced video content and it is amazing! There are loads of extras packed into this version which include more art work, band pics and liner notes than the original. If like me you bought the original release on vinyl then this is the perfect way to up date your collection to the CD format. "Powerslave" is a classic Iron Maiden album and deserves to be heard by everyone who loves Heavy Metal music. So buy this album and you will have a piece of Heavy Metal history that will bring you joy for years to come.

Possibly the best album of the best metal band of all time. Each track is an anthem that demands to be listened to in its entirety, even the 14 minute epic "Rime Of The Ancient Mariner" keeps me listening right till the end. A quality album from a quality band, cannot see how it could disappoint any listener from a veteran metal head to the newest of fans

Classic album from Iron Maiden. Bruce Dickinson is on top form on this, and featuring great guitar solos and riffs. Still sounds brilliant 31 years after it's release.

Maiden were on top of the world when they released this platter, and remained there for at least 3 more albums before the slide began (curse Seattle.............just kidding!).
It's all been said really - from the opening dual guitar intro to Aces High (one of the best Maiden choruses ever?)through the fantastic riff to 2 Minutes, via the twin guitarwork on The Duelists, the wonderfully complex riff to Back In The Village (or the return of The Prisoner), the mysterious theme and awesome instrumental section of Powerslave, all dwarfed by the huge Rime of the Ancient Mariner, this album is a wild ride.
Very good production, although I would have liked a bit more bottom end (my taste only), the boys are the best at what they do, and this was one of their finest moments.
BUY!!!

If this review were for the disk alone it would score 5 stars - Powerslave is one of Maiden's greatest. The strength of Aces High, 2 Minutes to Midnight, Powerslave and the epic Rime of Ancient Mariner allow the band to get away with not one, but two songs about sword fighting (a lesser band would never get away with this!). For me the weakest track is Back in the Village - it's simply outclassed by the rest of the album.

Now for the downside - like the other re-issues Powerslave features slightly more vivid artwork which looks really good the sky is vividly blue and the pyramid looks great; however the gold lettering looks more yellow than gold and it has lost the textured sleeve of the original. These are just small points.

The inner sleeve lets this release down badly - the artwork seems to have been sourced from a low resolution source - the photograph is a little blurry and a little orange. The text and lyrics are blurred and difficult to read. This is very apparent when view side by side wit the original. it all appears a bit too orange and dark. For a premium release this should not have happened.

Despite the negatives - the heavy vinyl sounds great and feels great - I can live with the problems with the sleeve and you should not let this annoyance put you off an otherwise great record.
