Cashing in on the biggest name on their roster, Sanctuary has issued The Essential Iron Maiden. A double-disc greatest hits collection. It is, what it is. Nothing fancy or special here, even the packaging is boring. Claiming to be the Essential Maiden collection, I find it very odd that this is the only release out of more than two-dozen that doesnít display the bandís essential mascot Eddie on the cover. As a compilation though, it does itís job, gathering notable songs from all of their albums and all three singers. This cd is probably geared to the new fan, looking to get all of the hits without spending a lot of money, but itís not something you need if you already have all of their cds. --Scott
