  DOOGIE WHITE – Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter (Dickinson) Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter – Commentary Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter – Lyrics

This is a decent cover of "Bring Your Daughter..." without Bruce Dickinson's original raspy voice. Probably what Whitesnake would have made of it.

  PAUL DI'ANNO – Murders In The Rue Morgue (Harris) Murders In The Rue Morgue – Commentary Murders In The Rue Morgue – Lyrics

Even more aggressive than the original, this cover of "Murders In The Rue Morgue" is great. Paul's vocals are simply perfect for it.

  STEVE GRIMMETT – Aces High (Harris) Aces High – Commentary Aces High – Lyrics

Steve Grimmett does a pretty good job on this version of "Aces High". Fast and furious as it should be.

  STEVE OVERLAND – Flight Of Icarus (Smith, Dickinson) Flight Of Icarus – Commentary Flight Of Icarus – Lyrics

The voice is so cheesy it drips like molten raclette. Not the best cover on this album, by far.

  STEVE GRIMMETT – Wasted Years (Smith) Wasted Years – Commentary Wasted Years – Lyrics

Yet another good cover by Steve Grimmett, although a bit more aggression in the voice wouldn't have gone amiss.

  PAUL DI'ANNO – Remember Tomorrow (Harris, Di'Anno) Remember Tomorrow – Commentary Remember Tomorrow – Lyrics

This cover of "Remember Tomorrow" contains more emotion in Paul Di'Anno's voice than the original itself. Simply great!

  DOOGIE WHITE – The Clairvoyant (Harris) The Clairvoyant – Commentary The Clairvoyant – Lyrics

It's with a song like this that we realise that Doogie White would have been a perfect Dickinson II for Maiden. Almost perfect vocal rendition. Good thing Steve chose Blaze and his different singing range!

  STEVE OVERLAND – The Prisoner (Smith, Harris) The Prisoner – Commentary The Prisoner – Lyrics

Steve Overland may be a great singer, but his style simply does not fit to Iron Maiden songs at all. Whitesnake maybe?

  PAUL DI'ANNO – Sanctuary (Harris, Di'Anno, Murray) Sanctuary – Commentary Sanctuary – Lyrics

Once again, a Di'Anno-era Maiden song sung by Paul Di'Anno himself more aggressively than the original version. Simply brilliant.

  STEVE GRIMMETT – Powerslave (Dickinson) Powerslave – Commentary Powerslave – Lyrics

Excellent rendition of one of Iron Maiden's best songs. Steve Grimmett does here once again a really good job.

  PAUL DI'ANNO – Killers (Di'Anno, Harris) Killers – Commentary Killers – Lyrics

Fast and aggressive. Paul's voice is once again pefect for this "cover".

  BERNIE SHAW – Fear Of The Dark (Harris) Fear Of The Dark – Commentary Fear Of The Dark – Lyrics

Uriah Heep's Bernie Shaw offers us a really good version of "Fear Of The Dark", with a voice that fits quite nicely to the song.
