Product Description

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

The subject says it all. The picture discs have fantastic visual artwork, but unfortunately the sound quality is absolutely atrocious.

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...

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Debut Album June 11 2004
By Ironman
Format:Audio CD
Iron Maiden started of pretty well with a punk-sounded album. Compared to today's Iron Maiden sound, the band has changed but I'll get to that story someday. Below are my thoughts on each song:
Prowler: 4.8/5 - Good, solid opener for the album, really shows what's yet to come. The music is awesome as well as the lyrics.
Sanctuary: 5/5 - The first of this album's best songs. Fast, catchy and awesome lyrics(though I had trouble understanding them at first). Has a sort of heavy feeling but I can't seem to figure out what it is!
Remember Tomorrow: 5/5 - My favourite slow song of this era. Not really a ballad as it goes from soft to heavy, but it's an incredible song.
Running Free: 5/5 - Three straight full-mark songs already? This is the punkest song on the album, a favourite to many fans, and my second favourite song on this album.
Phantom Of The Opera: 5/5 - The longest and greatest song on this album. My favourite track features an opera-like intro which sets the tone for this masterpiece. The first of two masterpieces actually(from this era).
Transylvania: 4.9/5 - The full-mark streak ends with my favourite instrumental. Like one reviewer(who earned my respect) said, it has a transylvanian sound to it. This song would've gotten full marks if it was a bit longer, just in case Metallica's Orion might have wanted to compete.
Strange World: 4/5 - Not my favourite track but deserves some recognition for being a good, slow song.
Charlotte The Harlet: 5/5 - The full marks return with Dave Murray's first(and I think only)solo written song. The start of four amazing songs in the Charlotte The Harlot series. DO NOT skip this song! Also has a cool instrumental sound in the middle.
Iron Maiden: 5/5 - The album ends with the band's 'street theme'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maiden's debut is a boiler May 27 2004
By Josh R.
Format:Audio CD
Note that THIS is the Iron Maiden CD that I started with. No Number of the Beast, folks. It took a little bit to get used to the Maiden sound, but it was an absolute grower and now I can't get enough of it.
After a much-requested (by the fans) Soundhouse Tapes release, Maiden knew they had their work cut out for them to make their debut LP. So they did, recording it in 1979 and making it ready for release by early 1980. It was an awsome fusion of melodic rock, punk, and heavy metal, and it certainly showed what was to come for Maiden- if their debut was this good, what could come next? This lineup was one of Maiden's earliest album-wise, it had the rough and tumble Paul Di'Anno vocals (no high pitched stuff here- well, maybe a little, hehe) and original guitarist Dennis Stratton and drummer Clive Burr. Sadly this would be Stratton's last LP with Maiden. I usually don't do track-by-track reviews, but since this album is so good, I think I will.
Prowler- An awsome opener! Wouldn't think of anything else opening off this terrific CD. It's fast, tough, and has good guitar licks courtesy of Dave Murray and Maiden's old guitarist Dennis Stratton. Features some ripping solos in the middle. Funny but questionable lyrics, has a good song title though. Maiden hooks you with this song, and sets the tempo for the rest of the record. Greatness. 5/5
Sanctuary- Originally released shortly after this album as a single, Sanctuary is sometimes cut down by fans, but I, for one, love it. It just chugs along with some good backbone by drummer Clive Burr and bassist (our man!) Steve Harris. I like the lyrics alot- ("Out of the winter came a warhorse of steel, I'd never killed a woman before but I know how it feels"). Don't know why this song is so cut down by some people.

The Maiden formed in 1976, and for 4 years they toured the underground English club circuit before signing on to a majro label and releasing their fantastic self-titled Debut album, IRON MAIDEN. Along with Never-Say-Die members Steve Harris and Dave Murray, who have stayed with the group during it's entire life-span, this album features the sole appearance of guitarris Dennis Straton and drummer Doug Samson, plus original vocalist Paul Di'Anno. Right from the start, Iron Maiden were more than just a promising band, they delivered the goods on every one of the album's 9 tracks.As a debut it's one of the best in all of metal, and as a Maiden album it's among their best work.
Opener "Prowler" sports one of the most awesome guitar riffs of their career, a police car siren attack that sets high standards for the rest of the album. "Sanctuary" is a famous maiden track with good bass and a catchy chorus, not my fave, but still pretty good. "Remember Tomorrow" alternates between calm acoustic passages and loud instrumental heaviness, an awesome track. Following is the fun and anthemic hit single "Running Free", plus the sprawling 7-min masterpiece of "Phantom of the Opera". "Transylvania" is a fast and hard-hitting instrumental that transforms into the beautiful atmospheric "Strange World". "Charlotte the Harlot" is the first of a 4-part series, and is one of the best of the lot. Their namesake closer is one of the most memorable Maiden songs; there's just something breathtaking about the first guitar riff, which would provide the blueprint for many other great Maiden riffs to come.
All in All, Iron Maiden leaves nothing to be desired save for more Maiden.
