Best Of The Beast" is the first major Iron Maiden compilation. It contains a
sampling of songs from Maiden's entire career, from the earliest Soundhouse
recordings up through "The X Factor". Released as a limited edition digibook
which is a fairly long booklet containing album and single cover pictures,
diary entries, song lyrics, discography, and tour information. There are two
major highlights of "Best Of The Beast", the new single "Virus", "Afraid To
Shoot Strangers" (live '95) and two songs from the original Soundhouse Tapes,
"Strange World" and "Iron Maiden", which were previously unavailable on CD.
(The 4 LP version contains more & exclusive tracks like "Seventh son of a
seventh son", "Revelations (Live), "The prisoner", "Killers", "Remember
tomorrow", "Prowler - Soundhouse tapes" and "Invasion - Soundhouse tapes").

Former members when this compilation was released:
- Doug Sampson
- Dennis Stratton
- Paul DiAnno
- Clive Burr
- Adrian Smith
- Bruce Dickinson

CD1: track 4 mixed by Steve Harris & Nigel Green.
All tracks are re-mastered.

"Best of the Beast" has also been released also as a limited edition 4 LP boxed
set, standard double CD and a 1 CD version, with a very different tracklist.

This compilation is now out of print.

이것이야 말로 지구상의 모든 편집엘범이 지향했었어야 할 모범사례이다. 최고의 수록곡과 미공개곡, 라이브, 두툼하고 볼 가치가 있는 부클릿의 각종자료 - 게다가 1CD와 2CD의 버전으로 출시되었다. 아이언 메이든판 구약성서라고 해도 모자람이 없다.
level   (90/100)
dobrá výberovka s bohatým bookletom

메이든의 여러 컴필레이션 음반중 제일 괜찮다.끝까지 다듣고나서 느낌은 시종일관 초전박살.
