This tribute album was quickly put together – with EMI's blessing! – just before Iron Maiden went to play Colombia during the Somewhere Back In Time tour. The precipitation of the recording explains the poor production, despite the obvious will of the local bands to show the boys and the rest world what they were capable of. The sleeve illustrations are magnificent, but the music is sadly not quite up to par. This album is only recommended if you're a proud Colombian or a die-hard collector.
– Wasted Years (Smith)
Slightly faster than the original, Sigma delivers an efficient version of "Wasted Years" despite a somehow hectic solo.
Starting with an intro containing a piano-sounding synth, this is a rather strange cover of "Infinite Dreams". The funny sound of the synth tends to ruin a song that could otherwise have been quite enjoyable.
With a promising piano intro, this cover ends up in a hectic Death Metal mess. This is just a waste of a good song.
– Aces High (Harris)
Hardly anything can be found on the Web about Noizart, which is a shame as, judging from the quality of this cover of "Aces High", they must be a pretty good band. This song is one of the highlights on this album.
– Be Quick or Be Dead (Dickinson, Gers)
With a somehow noisy and un-promising start, this cover is actually not too bad – well, not as bad as the intro could have led us to believe. True to the original energy of Maiden's song, it is quite enjoyable and contains a Children Of Bodom-style guitar and synth solo.
– Can I Play With Madness (Smith, Dickinson, Harris)
This is a pretty average cover of "Can I Play With Madness" that could have been performed by a bunch of college-goers at their yearly party. It's probably good for a sing-along once you're intoxicated enough. Oh, and the long ending was totally unnecessary.
