4.0 out of 5 stars Good for die-hard Maiden fans Dec 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
Even though they have been together for nearly three decades, Iron Maiden is a band whose musical quality shows no signs of diminishing. Their 2003 album, Dance Of Death, proved to be an excellent one that fused elements of the band from different stages of their career, resulting in an album that was nothing short of excellent. The first single to be released off of the new album was Wildest Dreams. Read on for my review.
Wildest Dreams, the single A-Side, is the obvious attraction here. It's straight-up classic hard power rock as only Maiden could do. I don't think any other song off of the album would have been a better single release choice. You also get two B-Sides. The first of which is a new composition entitled Pass The Jam. This is a lengthy and highly obscure track, but it's still pretty damn cool. You also get a new, orchestral take on the band's 2000 smash, Blood Brothers. The orchestral touch is VERY nice. All in all a cool little package.
Unfortunately, the single has a huge problem - its distribution. It seems the band only released this in their native United Kingdom! That sucks, because this would have sold really well in America - where there REAL fanbase is. Also, the price is too steep - The Dance Of Death album is the SAME PRICE! Still, if you're a die-hard Maiden fan, hunt this down so you can get the rare B-Sides. Maiden rules, and this single is proof.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for collector's, others may pass Oct. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
Being a huge Iron Maiden fan, I couldn't wait to get the first single off their forth-coming album Dance Of Death. To tell you the truth, I was not real big on Wildest Dreams when I first heard it. I guess I just got myself so psyched up about it expecting some monumental song, that I just set myself up for disappointment. After a while, I grew to really enjoy the song. It's a rather simplistic song for Maiden, and actually is very reminisent of material off their first two albums. Wildest Dreams is very much like song Running Free in subject matter. Overall, I learned to like this song and its very radio friendly. The reason I got this Import Disc from Britian is because of the B-Side tracks. Hey, I'm a Maiden collector, and I have to have EVERY one of their songs. The first B-Side is Pass The Jam. It's a humorus track that definatly shows off Maiden's lighter side, much like their other B-sides Sherriff of Huddersfield, Black Bart Blues, and Nodding Donkey Blues. Sadly, Pass The Jam isn't near as good as those others I mentioned. Again it has some funny parts, but it is rather long and can get boring. This song is only for the true Maiden collector. The second B-Side is a so-called "Orchestral Version" of Blood Brothers. I was REALLY disappointed by this track because there is hardly ANY diffence from the original version. This disc is great for the collector, but others are just good buying the album Dance of Death instead. One other differnce on this CD is the intro to Wildest Dreams. The album version has the band counting 1..2..1..2..3..4, but that is cut on on the single version here. Nothing major, just for those of you who are interested.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Wickerman is overall better Sept. 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
I didn't know what to think when I first heard Wildest Dreams. I didn't like it, but I learned in time and it grew on me, and overall I think it's a very nice upbeat song, fits perfecly for a first single off the Dance of Death album which will be released exactly a week later while typing this review. Wildest Dreams is overall not a genius song, not one of Maiden's best, but overall good in it's own way and a good choice for a single. Still, The Wickerman off the Brave New World album is a better song.
This single also contains 2 more tracks:
Pass The Jam: this track actually surprised me. It sounds different from anything I have heard by Maiden before. The guitar work of this song actually reminds me of AC/DC and even Megadeth. With funny lyrics, good riffs, good mood and good solos this track steals the show from Wildest Dreams as the best track on the album. Enjoyable track.
Blood Brothers Orchestra Mix: Well this was a disappointment. Blood Brothers is an excellent song and while listening to this version I didn't even notice the difference, because there simply isn't. It's exactly the same song only with a little bit more strings, synths etc so that's actually a disappointment, do not hope for something new on this track. You won't notice any difference.
While Pass The Jam being the best song here, it's better picking up the Dance of Death album instead, and though this track doesn't appear on it, I'm sure I won't miss it at all when I listen to the rest of the songs from Dance of Death.

1.0 out of 5 stars Iron Maiden's Wildest Dreams Sept. 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
Iron Maiden's first single from the album "Dance of Death" isn't so good. It hasn't the same feeling like it has in 80's and even in 90's.
1. Wildest Dreams - basic heavy rock, nothing speacial 2.5/5
2. Pass The Jam - too long and too boring, this sounds too much 60's Beatles 0.25/5
3. Blood Brothers - The lyrics are quite good but the music is too basic stuff. 1/5
So, this single didn't make an impression to me. The lyrics are quite good but the music is too basic heavy rock.
