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.
UP THE IRONS!
