3.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the artwork though June 26 2012
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
I was so excited to receive this record, and when it arrived I looked at it in amazement, it is really a piece of art, the cover, the gatefold pictures and lyrics, and then the discs, oh they looked so good and heavy, worth framing and displaying in a fancy room, and then I put side 1 on the turntable, what a let down, first tarck aces high (live), why live?, what's the point, this is a greatest hits album, not that they say anything on the track, just the applause, and the sound is worse than a cassette tape, sound like somone was standing front row with a microphone and recording the concert, track two, minutes 2 midnight, really good sound, so I thought, well one track off it's ok, then my favourite song, the trooper, oh man, I'd rather listen to my 30 years old cassette tape, major let down, after that I stopped listening to the record, I mean, why go to all that trouble with the discs and artwork, at least remaster the songs, like everyone else, Deep purple, AC/DC, Beatles..etc...so sad that it sounds so awfull, now I'll just keep it to look at not play, maybe worth keeping, but I will be looking for a better sound quality best of in the future, not happy with this one.

Iron Maiden should already have a place in your music collection if you're into rock'n'roll, metal or whatever genre you like. If you don't own anything by Maiden you probably shouldn't consider yourself a metalhead, they are essential to the genre. They are one of my favorite bands and are without question one of the most influential bands in rock music. Maiden's prime was definitely during the 1980s, I don't feel like they released a bad album during this decade (but some are obviously better than others) and this compilation Somewhere Back in Time: 1980-89 covers this special time. It was released in 2008 along with the excellent Live After Death DVD(from the World Slavery tour of 1984-85) promoting Maiden's tour which graced the same name of this compilation (oh and as usual with Maiden's artwork I love it the mix of Powerslave with Somewhere In Time looks terrific), Somewhere Back In Time, in which they put emphasis on the classics during this tour.

What's in this compilation? :

First we have 2 songs from their self-titled debut and 1 from Killers with singer Paul Di' Anno sang by Bruce Dickinson on Live After Death. They sound great even if they're not the originals but I just wish that they could have somehow put them here. Then there are 4 songs from The Number of The Beast on this compilation and rightfully so as it's often pointed out as their best album. I'm quite disappointed that they only included The Trooper from Piece of Mind that album was great and there were plenty of songs that could have been selected to be here, Where Eagles Dare, Die With Your Boots On, Flight of Icarus and Revelations weren't good enough? There are 3 songs from Powerslave, one live from Live After Death good representation of one of their strongest albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Somewhere back in time Dec 31 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'm not a hardcore Iron Maiden fan, I just wanted an album with all their best songs. Well, can't ask much more! Live stuff is great =). This album is a great way to discover a great band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Class of 87 - Maiden Rules! PERFECT set! May 15 2008
By Glen Murley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I graduated High School in 1987. I was a metal head. I wore my jean jacket with studs, boots, long hair, and a fast car. I'm currently 39 and bald. I drive the speed limit. And I'm paying a mortgage.

But I still love to relive some of the better metal of my youth. Amazingly, Maiden is not only still around, but still hugely popular. This collection really whet my appetite. If it lived up to it's title it would actually profile the exact moment of my youth.

Is it needed? No, there are countless Maiden collections. Many have these tunes all collected in a 2-cd "best of" compilation. So why on earth would you buy something new that is, in reality, a scaled down version of a set that has more than twice as many songs for an extra 4.00? Because for someone of my age, this is truly the best, "best of" compilation out there. I don't doubt that Maiden has been producing face-melting riffs all these long years. But I have not followed them.

For me, this set chonicles my youth. The Trooper? Wasted Years? Can I Play With Madness? Ryhme of the Ancient Mariner? Holy cow, this set has got it all. Nothing but classic Maiden. Not bogged down with the newer stuff.

If you're a younger fan than by all means, buy one of the 2-CD sets that chronicle the band's metamorphasis over the years. But if you're just looking for classic Maiden with no tracks that you'll skip because they're too new to recognize, then drive right in. I know every single song on this CD and it saves me from dragging out my 2-cd set and skipping over all the new stuff. This is finally a Best-Of CD that I can put and and enjoy from the first track to the last.

And in all seriousness, this is obviously not the "complete" hits from the 80-89 era. Growing up we actually used to listen to the albums all the way through. There wasn't itunes so you could just buy what you wanted. But if you had to have a greatest hits from this era, then this is about as good as it gets without making it yourself. Kudos to the band for honoring it's more senior fans. We're the ones that helped put Maiden on the charts to begin with.

And for you kids out there just getting into Maiden, if you want to know what launched Maiden to the world stage, this is the perfect primer. I love this set. I'll take this over any 2-CD best of set any day.

4.0 out of 5 stars Create your own playlist and quit whining! Jan. 9 2012
By Ndntyger - Published on Amazon.com
In the age of MP3's and iPods you can create your own playlist and quit whining! This is a good start for Newbies and casual fans as IM diehards will have most or all of their albums! Di'Anno fans can get IM & Killers (hey I Like Di'Anno too)! I have different playlists for different tours that I have seen or like* (1983, 1992, 2000, 2008 & 2010*) and rotate these playlists to get some variety. Another idea would be to do playlists in decades (Di'Anno, 80's, 90's, Blayze & 00's). Or Heaven forbid, you can play your favorite IM album in its entirety (duh). You can even do, dare I say? ...an IM marathon!
Get creative and UP THE IRONS!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great re-collection, best of the "best of" Aug. 14 2012
By David Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Redundant, but I can't knock it! June 4 2012
By Joseph Eversole - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Yes there are too many Iron Maiden compilations (live albums too.) It might be the band's or the record company's decision to continue releasing these discs, maybe both. Never the less I can't fault the music and this appears to be the best collection representing Maiden's prime years that I've seen so far. If you're revisiting a band of your youth or just now discovering them this is a good place to start. I'll get crucified by other reviewers but let's face it...if you've ever tried to find the remastered albums in stores (what few music stores that still exist) you're in for quite a search. Add to that the fact that Maiden albums, new anyway, are almost never discounted. So instead of spending a lot of cash on several of the (admittedly awesome)albums what's wrong with something like this to start off with? Maybe an old fan doesn't feel the need to replace the old LPs, original issue CDs or cassettes. Some folks will buy everything to complete a collection (and for Maiden it's understandable for the artwork alone) but most fans already have this music and won't need it. It's not marketed to those fans. Take it for what it is and enjoy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Compilation of One of Metal's Greats Jan. 15 2013
By paranoidironman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Somewhere Back in Time is one of many Maiden compilations. It takes songs from the period of 1980-1989 (Iron Maiden-Seventh Son of a Seventh Son).

Iron Maiden/Killers:
Songs: N/A
Comments: How can you not include ANY songs from the first two albums? Yes, their are versions of some songs from Live After Death in here, but it just isn't the same.
Review: 0/10

The Number of the Beast:
Songs: The Number of the Beast, Run to the Hills, Hallowed Be Thy Name, Children of the Damned
Comments: "The Number of the Beast", "Run to the Hills", and "Hallowed Be Thy Name" are givens, but "Children of the Damned" was a cool inclusion.
Review: 8/10

Piece of Mind:
Songs: The Trooper
Comments: Really? This is all they could include? I'm not saying "The Trooper" is a bad song, but why couldn't they include "Where Eagles Dare", "Flight if Icarus", " Die With Your Boots On", or "Still Life"?
Review: 2/10

Powerslave:
Songs: 2 Minutes to Midnight, Powerslave
Comments: This album is one of Maiden's best and, while these songs are very good, WHERE THE HELL IS "RIME OF THE ANCIENT MARINER"?!?!?! This song is essential Maiden, and quite possibly their finest epic.
Review: 4/10

Live After Death:
Songs: Iron Maiden and Phantom of the Opera (Iron Maiden), Wrathchild (Killers), Chuchill's Speech/Aces High (Powerslave)
Comments: Finally, an album represented well. The songs on here from the Di'Anno albums, while not as good as the originals, are at least represented in some way. Also, "Aces High" is performed great.
Review: 10/10

Somewhere in Time:
Songs: Wasted Years
Comments: Really wasn't expecting anything else. But there are some other really good songs on that album...
Review: 6/10

Seventh Son of a Seventh Son:
Songs: Can I Play With Madness, The Evil That Men Do
Comments: It was cool to see that "Can I Play With Madness" wasn't the only song included from "SSOASS".
Review: 5/10

Final Thoughts: While this compilation is a decent representation of Maiden, older fans have no reason to purchase this, and newer fans are better off just buying "Killers", "The Number of the Beast", "Piece of Mind", or "Powerslave".
