"These tracks are the absolute bread and butter of an Iron Maiden gig..."
Q (Magazine) - p.154
4 stars out of 5 -- "Maidens' anthems dealt with war, Egyptian folklore, Satan and prostitutes, all irresistible fodder for the adolescent male."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.90
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here's something gnarly about Di'Anno's 'Wrathchild' and the mighty 'Phantom Of The Opera' that, on record, captures something wicked and gleeful."

Inarguably one of heavy metal's most important and influential acts, Iron Maiden were at the forefront of the new wave of British heavy metal at the dawn of the 1980s. While Maiden remained popular for decades to come, SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME covers the band's vital heyday, beginning with their first album and moving right into the arrival of wailing banshee Bruce Dickinson and the tremendous success that followed him. SOMEWHERE was tied into their monster 2008 tour, which, like the album featured smashes from their '80s albums such as POWERSLAVE, NUMBER OF THE BEAST, and SOMEWHERE IN TIME. Classics like the galloping "Run to the Hills" and the gritty "The Trooper" are here in their full glory, and songs like "Wrathchild" that predate Dickinson are represented by live tracks with the iconic singer on vocals. Previous greatest hits had most of these songs, but this is a no-filler addition for new fans.
