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.Read more ›
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 :)
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!
"Up The Iron's"
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.
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.
