Editorial Reviews

Triple vinyl LP Picture Disc pressing. 2011 collection from the Heavy Metal heroes containing their finest recordings from 1990-2010. From Fear To Eternity is a chance for new fans to explore the group's rich history, with the highlights of their last eight studio albums distilled into this handy collection, which follows 2009's Somewhere Back In Time compilation of their earlier work from 1980-1990. Perennial favorites found on this album include songs also featured on Maiden's current The Final Frontier World Tour set list; tracks such as "Fear Of The Dark," "The Wicker Man," "Blood Brothers" and "Dance Of Death" sit alongside recent classics "El Dorado" and the hauntingly evocative "When The Wild Wind Blows." It also includes singles like "Holy Smoke" and "Be Quick Or Be Dead" together with more progressive thought-provoking album tracks like "Afraid To Shoot Strangers" and "For The Greater Good Of God."

Iron Maiden are truly metal legends, they've been rocking and selling out arenas for decades. The iconic British band is also famous among fans for the many greatest hits compilations albums that they have released over the years. Another greatest hits album, From Fear To Eternity continues where Somewhere Back In Time left in 2008, covering the years 1990-2010. Somewhere Back In Time covered the 1980's, the band's early years and From Fear To Eternity covers the latter (and still quite good) Maiden years. This compilation take its clever title from the song "From Here to Eternity" which was on Fear of the Dark, plus I also have to admit the album cover looks damn good, real good.

Here is what is on From Fear To Eternity. From the band's last albums with Bruce before the reunion, we have three songs from the 1990 album No Prayer for the Dying and three from 1992's Fear of the Dark. The Blaze Bayley years are covered, with two tracks from The X-Factor (1995) and one from Virtual XI (1998). It's interesting how the Blaze Bayley era songs were replaced by live versions sung by Bruce Dickinson, Somewhere Back In Time did the same thing (replaced the Di'Anno songs by live ones sung by Bruce). I don't mind this as I really like those versions (especially Sign of the Cross) and to be honest it was kind of expected. The three live Blaze songs are all take from the excellent Rock In Rio album (2001). The version of Fear of the Dark here is from the Rock In Rio live album as well which makes a total of four Rio live songs used. The reunion album Brave New World (2000) has 3 of its songs on From Fear To Eternity. Dance of Death (2003) and A Matter of Life and Death (2006) each have four songs. Last year's The Final Frontier has for its part, three songs on this compilation.

I was an Iron Maiden fan back in the 80s, but slowly lost interest in most metal music over the years. Recently I've gone back to my childhood metal roots and picked up some of the albums I loved along with others I could not afford at the time on my allowance.

From Fear and Somewhere Back in Time were perfect for me. I didn't want to spend a bunch of bucks picking up all the albums and I was unsure if I would even like their 90s to present music because other bands like Metallica and Megadeth I stopped enjoying around this time (for me, the enter sandman sellout time.)

Been listening to From Fear for about a week now and I'm loving it very close to as much as their earlier stuff. I know I am going to slowly pick up some of the albums represented by these cherry picked songs in hopes that they missed some gems.

The only thing I thought was a bit weird is that the songs seem to be mixed around on the 2 cds (not in order of release date.) So when I hear a song I like, I have to keep refering to the booklet to figure out which album it is from.
Otherwise, feels good to be back :)

Iron Maiden can do no wrong. I also think it's cool we get to listen to live versions, with Dickinson and the definitive band, of the songs originally sung by Blaze Bayley.
I'm surprised that so many so called fans complain about "best of albums." These albums are not for the people who own all the groups albums. They are for the casual listener who wants a large verity in one package. I however do own all the CD's, but I will be buying this on Vinyl so I get to have the best of these past 20 years on my turn table. And that wicked cool album cover too!

No one will dispute that Iron Maiden's best and most iconic songs came out of their 1980s heyday, but the band has bested a lot of their contemporaries by continuing to make compelling and rocking new metal into their later years. From Fear to Eternity (which is meant to serve as a companion piece to Somewhere Back in Time: The Best of 1980-1989) offers a fairly comprehensive look at what the boys have been up to since the '80s ended. Included are hit songs from the last two Bruce Dickenson-fronted albums before he left the band (Tailgunner, a rousing live recording of Fear of the Dark); a bunch of great songs released since Dickenson's glorious return (Different World; Paschendale, These Colors Don't Run); and a couple of songs from the intervening Blaze Bayley years recorded live with Dickenson on vocals. (Yes, they're much improved with Bruce singing them.)

So if you were a big Maiden fan back in the day and have been interested in what they've been up to more recently, this collection might be the best way to dive back into their music. You'll be surprised at how relevant and powerful their sound still is.

OK, I have some things to admit. I was a metalhead in my teens. That was about 30 years ago. I didn't get what Iron Maiden was doing back then. I missed their peak years. A few years ago, I bought Powerslave on a whim. I loved it. From there, I dug back through Maiden's catalog. I stopped at the Seventh Son album. I figured From Fear... was a good way to sample some of the newer Maiden.
To be honest, I really like some of the songs here. There are a few clunkers, in particular the songs from the No Prayer for the Dying album. However, you get brilliant songs like Wicker Man, Rainmaker, Paschendale, Different World, etc. I think Maiden has gotten better with time. Here are my arguments to that point. 1) Nicko is featured more prominently on 2000 and later albums, aside from Powerslave. 2) The song writing is much better with these later albums. There were some flashes of greatness in the past. Beast, Mariner, etc. But the newer trend of bigger choruses, sing-able melodies and such are great, in my opinion. This is the secret to Maiden's recent success, in my opinion. 3) The songs have become longer and more intricate. More changes in feel, tempo, and mood are in these newer songs. I guess this makes Maiden more prog-rock. Whatever you want to call it, it makes the songs more like stories. And that, to me, is entertaining. And maybe that is what I finally found in Maiden's music. And I find it more consistently in the 2000 and later albums. I love the 80s Maiden now. Don't get me wrong. But the things I liked back then are more honed and more implemented in the newer work. I need to buy the newer albums. I will avoid No Prayer, but will start with Fear of the Dark and move right on to Final Frontier. I think maybe I will find some gems they didn't put on From Fear to Eternity.
