Customer Review

If I had to point to one single Heavy Metal album that defines the genre, this would probably be it. This along with Black Sabbath's The Mob Rules and Ozzy's Blizzard of Ozz and maybe something like Juda Priest's Unleashed in the East or Metallica's Ride the Lightning....these handful of albums really are the definition of the genre...

Yes, there is speed/thrash metal like Slayer and Megadeth and yes there is hard rock like AC/DC, Motorhead, Scorpions, and Van Halen...and grungy heavy rock like Soundgarden and those bands...

But for THE BEST OF HEAVY METAL ROCK AND ROLL....well this album pretty much hits the nail on the head. It's got the punk rock influence. It's got the ballads. It's got the aggression, the angst, the coarseness, the screaming guitars, thundering drums and bass, it's ...well, it [...] rocks, and it always will rock.

Not to mention, it's got class, taste, and is on par with the highest level of artistic integrity found in the business, bar none.

And it's got Paul Di'Anno. He's no pansie. Ok, well, Bruce isn't a pansy...but Paul isn't Bruce. Paul is hard-core...he is down with the street..he is gritty and he is raw.

This is the best Maiden album. It may be the best Metal album there is.
