Product Description

Product Description

EMI. 2008.

Amazon.ca

This opening sonic salvo from Steve Harris's East End stalwarts pretty much defined the late 1970's post-punk rebirth of rock traditionalism known as the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. Featuring the strident cockney roar of the band's original lead vocalist Paul Di'Anno, Iron Maiden capitalised on the band's enormous grass-roots live following by storming immediately into the upper reaches of the album chart. A perfect balance of the irresistibly catchy ("Running Free"), the intricately epic ("Phantom Of The Opera") and the roguishly profane ("Charlotte The Harlot"), it's an assured debut, superficially marred by somewhat pedestrian production values. Newly enhanced with the addition of video clips and assorted other multimedia goodies, Iron Maiden--specifically the blazing, fretboard ferocity of its closing title track--is an utterly essential element of any self-respecting metal-head's record collection. Furious, whiplash headbanging is not so much recommended as completely unavoidable. --Ian Fortnam

5.0 out of 5 stars "Sadly Underrated Masterpiece" Dec 5 2007
By Tommy Skylar TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Just because Iron Maiden were mostly succesfull with Bruce Dickinson as their signer and that the albums were huge hits and all,it doesn't neccesarily mean that the previous signer Paul Di'Anno didn't do great albums with Maiden.In 1979-1980 the New Wave Of Brittish Heavy Metal exploded and Maiden were amongst the best of them and one of the surviving ones.Actually the two albums he did with the band "Iron Maiden" and "Killers" in 1980 and 1981 respectively can be considered as very good albums and influential ones as well,this first album especially.This album is actually a "chef d'oeuvre"(yeah a big word or two never hurts anybody)of the heavy metal genre.Well actually this album is showing their Punk-Rock roots and Di'Anno did have a pretty good voice for the genre of music they played at the time and has a special that i have grown to appreciate and its too bad that the band didn't make any other albums with him,even if i consider the Bruce era to be my favourite and the best.The songs on this one are classics of metal and are still great today,like the praised "Phantom Of The Opera" and the excellent "Prowler" that have a very classic sound and a good appeal with most Maiden fans.

Iron Maiden have been around since 1975(Christmas day,heheh)and all i have to say is why?Why didn't they release an album sooner but anyway the songs on here are some of the ones they had been playing since the debut of their careers and became some of their early hits."Prowler" was in fact on the band's 3 demo songs on their first LP,"Soundhouse Tapes" issued in 1978,and Iron Maiden caught attention from their beggenings as they sold five thousand copies in weeks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Multimedia CD! April 12 2002
By MO
Format:Audio CD
This is my first Maiden enhanced CD. Unbelievable extras!! The multimedia studio did a top notch job. The menu system and layout are extremely well done and the graphics are everything you'd expect from a Maiden production. Derek Riggs would be proud!

I particularly enjoyed the video clips, though the resolution was a little low. Phantom has always been a personal favorite.

I also really appreciated that they included everything you need to view the multimedia portion of the disk, right on the disk. I only have dial-up access so it's painful when you have to wait a while to see something because the download takes forever.

Otherwise all the audio trimmings you'd expect from the original Iron Maiden album.

My only complaint, and thus the 4 stars instead of 5, is my old Sony Discman refuses to recognize this as an audio CD. So I can't listen to it outside of my computer. I haven't experimented further with that yet to see if it's the disk or my player, but I would guess it's my player. It's only 7 years old...

4.0 out of 5 stars Pre Dickinson Pre Birch record Rocks! July 15 2012
By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is the first Iron Maiden record. Martin Birch would not start producing until the next one and Bruce Dickinson would not join until the one after that. This album with Paul Di'Anno on vocals has a few of Maidens signature songs on it like Iron Maiden and Running Free. But the album is strong over all. One of the great debut Metal records of all time. The production is good but the guitars are much thinner sounding then the Birch albums. Di'Anno's vocals do not have the rang that Dickinson's have but he still sounds great. His vocal style made these songs and even Dickinson has not messed with the vocal arrangements even now over twenty years later he still sings them like Di'Anno.
This is one of the few Band's where you can start at the beginning and you won't be waiting to get to the later records. A classic all round!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent debut LP Aug. 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
[Before you start reading this review, I want to apologize for making it so long. I had a lot to say, and there was no short way to do it.]
In 1979, the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal took England by storm. Hundreds of hard-rocking bands emerged overnight, and every one of them was excellent. Unfortunately, very few of these bands found success in their music, and an even smaller number of them found success outside their native United Kingdom. Iron Maiden is a rare example of one of the genre's bands that achieved worldwide success.
Through the course of the mid and late seventies, Iron Maiden had a number of line-up changes. They had recorded a demo collection and several tracks for compilations. Finally, come 1980 and the band was ready to release it's first full-length LP. With vocalist Paul Di'Anno, guitarists Dave Murray and Dennis Strattion, drummer Clive Burr, and bassist Steve Harris, the band served up an awesome punk-metal hybrid record. Though this obviously wasn't the sound that would bring the band its later success, it was still nothing short of excellent (though many Dickinson loyalists may disagree. In 1998 and again in 2002, the band's entire CD catalogue was rereleased as part of a remaster series. Read on for track-by-track comments and grades, as well as my comments on the remaster series.
Prowler - An excellent all-out punk-metal rocker about a sexual predator. Excellent early song. 4.5/5
Remember Tomorrow - Weird hybrid track featuring slow and melodic verses with a hard rocking chorus. An underrated song that never got the proper credit. 4.5/5
Running Free - The most overrated song on the album. It's a good track, but just pales in comparison to the album's other tracks. 3/5
Phantom Of The Opera - The album's best track by far.
