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.
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. 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.

I am big fan of Iron. but I can't stand simplicity of first single from Dance Of Death. To my liking, it's one of the worst track out there! Read morePublished on Oct. 18 2003 by Lukk
I didn't listen a song like this since long time. My ears cleaned. But other songs extremely bad. Wildest dreams is great. Same sound, same voice and same soul. Read morePublished on Sept. 12 2003 by Ugur Gündüz
