This CD is a single from Iron Maiden. It contains "Different World," "The Trooper," and "Hallowed By Thy Name." "Different World" is from the CD "A Matter of Life and Death," while the other two tracks are from other CDs but are modern renditions that were recorded in 2006 with no real changes to them. Bruce, Harris, Smith, McBrain, Murray, and Gers deliver.
Lyrics — 10
As always with Iron Maiden, the lyrics are great. "Hallowed By Thy Name" has some of the best Iron Maiden lyrics ever. "The Trooper" has lyrics that convey the image of the military charge it is based on right in your head. Bruce Dickinson is the most talented singer I know.He can hit those really high notes and not lose it. He's singing is almost operatic. It is a real joy to listen to.
Overall Impression — 10
I have to say, this is one of the best singles I have ever heard. Three great Maiden songs on one disc. All three songs are very impressive. I love the song structure and the emotion conveyed in the music that some artists cannot even attempt to do. The song "Hallowed By Thy Name" can actually make you sad. I got this for a little over six dollars, and for that price, you cannot go wrong.
