4.0 out of 5 stars Great re-collection, best of the "best of", August 14, 2012
This review is from: Somewhere Back In Time: The Best Of 1980-1989 (MP3 Music)
I graduated high school in 1991, and as much of a metal head as I was back then, the music I used to listen to somehow got lost to me in the 20+ years since then. I am a little ashamed to say that I had all but forgotten about Iron Maiden until I stumbled on a show on VH1 about the evolution of metal (remember when VH1 was an easy listening video station for our parents? Don't get me started!).

Sadly, all of my old Maiden stuff was on cassette or vinyl, and I had not replaced any of it. This album serves as a good way to replace some of the best songs from those old 80's tapes and records. There are some other songs that I would have liked to have seen on here (Die With Your Boots On and Alexander the Great come immediately to mind), but this album is a decent synopsis, and it will serve well to keep in my car for whenever I need a Maiden fix. If you just want an album to fulfill your fix for some 80's-era Maiden, look no further. If you are new to Iron Maiden, this might also be a good start for you, but if you can afford it you would be much better off buying the whole albums of Number of the Beast, Powerslave, Piece of Mind, and Somewhere in Time.

I give it four stars just because I think there are some great songs missing, but I am still very happy with this album.

UPDATE: I just went to burn this on to a CD and realized there is still over 9 minutes of available time on a standard CD, so I also downloaded the single song of Alexander the Great to add to this CD. It fit perfectly with another 43 seconds of space to spare!
