This suits me, I skipped out on Maiden after Seventh Son...thru to Final Frontier
So this will give me chance to catch up on the 2 decades missing, hopefully there is some Blaze in there?

It seems that the only Blaze material are live versions with Bruce singing, which is really unfair if you ask me.

It seems Maiden are choosing to pretend the Blaze years didn't exist for some reason. They actually released a couple of great Bruce sung live albums at this time ;A Real live one@ A Real Dead One! Overlooked imo. Gotta also remember Grunge was the in thing then also. The Blaze stuff weren't bad;but Bruce materials where its at imo

post7, no 'Number of the Beast' as it was released in 1982 and this is "The Best of 1990-2010". Fairly logical, no? ;)

I don't mind the idea of this "Best of", but I think this is a poor selection of songs.
'Holy Smoke'?? 'Tailgunner'?? Do Maiden really consider those 2 among their best?
Also, I don't think it's a good idea to mix live tracks with studio ones, but I bet it's exactly cos of Blaze, as Oz pointed out. And yes, that IS pretty f***ing unfair for him. Like he never happened. A large part of Maiden's history erased right there.
So, I couldn't disagree more, Hellrat. Blaze did a damn good job with Maiden.

Blaze may not be as good as Bruce or Di'anno but he did the best he could given the task and the material he was presented with. He's also one of the most absolutely nicest people you could ever wish to meet and always hangs around to chat with fans, have photos taken, sign autographs etc. which is more than people can say for most of Maiden's current lineup. His solo tours also sell quite well here in the U.K. so to call him a hack is really quite unfair and borders on plain nastiness.

I applaud S Harris for keeping Maiden afloat during these times! Grunge and nu metal were the rage then and conventional metal albums were passe. I agree that Blazes vocals were a bit flat for Maiden but the songs themselves were pretty damn good. Also A Smith wasn't in the picture at that time. Metallica if you remember;chose to release Load and Reload during these times. Always wondered what these Maiden songs woulda sound like with Bruce and A Smith on board. Up the Irons ! Warts and all

Hellrat, yeah man, opinions mate ;)

I think the "problem" with Blaze was the shoes he had to step into. I really think he did a great job with Maiden. BUT in the end, there's only one Bruce d***inson. No one can measure up to Bruce as the frontman of Maiden.

The Blaze era is really quite similar to the Ripper era of Priest. Both are great singers in and of themselves, but because they had to fill in for vocalists who had already achieved the status of legends in the hearts of heavy metal fans worldwide, they got ignored or insulted by long time fans, which is understandable, but very unfair.

Agreed Oz. The songs from Blaze era is what's important. Times were tough for conventional heavy metal bands then. They did they're best considering;and released some pretty good work imo! Just shows what a genius S Harris is in my opinion. No Harris means no Maiden. I saw that Jugulator your with Ripper and I thought he did a great job all things considered. Saw them at a mid sized club which was incredible. But popular consensus dictates ! Bruce for Maiden; Halford for Priest!

Ripper is certainly a better vocalist than Blaze, you'll get no argument from me on that front, I'm just saying that for the most part, Blaze and Ripper's eras with the bands are either shuffled away, ignored or hated on by fans.

Blaze Bayley is good at what he does. His own material and the Wolfsbane stuff suit much more than Maiden ever did. The thing is, the rest of the band wanted to continue after Bruce left, so of course they need a singer. Who do you think would have been a good replacement for Bruce in the mid 90s?

Blaze is also anything but abysmal, and even then, there are a number of pretty crap vocalists in metal who have become mainstays, favourites or influences on the genre. James Hetfield and Dave Mustaine to name two.

Agreed on the Mustaine: Hetfield Oz. Decisions made by Priest and Maiden on vocalists were made during a time when metal was as popular and accepted as a cleft palsted step son. Both bands soldiered on during tough times and created decent work imo. But if you ask me who I prefer I go with Halford@ d***inson any day. No discredit to the work these bands released in mid to late 90s

hell, you boys know i love ya and respect your opinions, and you make some fine points here...

I (ME) think blayze is terrible, i've never heard ANYthing impressive from him....but then, i also think the guy from dreamy chunder fvcking sucks as well!

i have no problem with second rate vocalists WISELY using what ability they have, its just these fvcking tools that audaciously imagine themselves to be better than they ever will be, and consistently failing to perform to the standard that has been attributed them

THAT is my definition of a hack

agreed about the moderately talented 'mainstays'...hell, look at diAnno...no great singer there by any means, but a unique vocal signature, and an excellent fit for the gritty and raw early maiden material

ozzy is another perfect example....

Point taken HR! Vocals overall take a back seat imo to the music. Case in point: Exodus :Bonded By Blood! Baloff had issues singing those songs on record@ he certainly struggled with them live! But Bonded By Blood was genre defining! Subpar vocals and all!
