Iron Maiden
From Fear To Eternity: 1990-2010
July 2011
Released: 2011, EMI
Rating: 4.0/5
Reviewer: Celtic Bob

Another compilation from one of Metal’s greatest bands of all time. Unlike previous compilations this one focus’ on the years 1990-2010. This is an excellent companion piece to the SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME set that covers the first 7 albums (ie. 80’s material).

Musically Iron Maiden’s music needs no real discussion. Anyone who is into Metal knows Maiden and their distinct sound. For those of you just getting into Metal and looking to get a sampling of Maiden then this set and the previously mentioned SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME are perfect starting points. From there you can go purchase the full albums from whichever songs that reach out and grabs you come from. I am willing to bet that will be from mid to late 80’s. Even their latest studio album from last summer; THE FINAL FRONTIER is represented here as well making it the ultimate Maiden compilation (for those particular years).

Pair this with SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME and you have quick access to some of the band’s greatest tunes. This release serves a purpose unlike many compilations and does it well. I just wish this had of come out a year earlier as it would have been the perfect primer for their summer tour across Canada.
