I really liked the publication. The mass of vinyl is high quality, very quiet. The sound is rich, worked out over the entire range, with a very clear innings. The polygraphy of the sleeve is not perfect, but overall quite neat. Quality release!

Just so people stop asking. The Maiden albums post "Seventh Son" were all mastered digitally originally. There exists no analog master from which to create an analog remaster. There can only be digital remasters or reissues of these albums.

Perfect vinyl edition. spotless and clean, good dynamics and great bass. imho the sound imprint is a bit similar to "the book of souls" vinyl version, i know this title is a 1992 and the other is their last album, but since this came out more recently i make sense of it.
i like the packaging too with the lovely black polylined sleeves. go for it and don't worry about the masters, seeing many other reviews seems there were not #ANALOG# original recording and it was digital from the beginning.
Good album too "afraid to shoot strangers/childhood's end/fear of the dark" are superb songs.
i like "wasted love too".

Sounds really good, nice and clean, no pops and cracks but I have to agree with Skatan81. I was disappointed to see that this is a digital reissue from hi resolution digital masters. I was hoping for a true analog remaster as well.
