Dream Theater - The Number Of The Beast (Iron Maiden) - Rapidshare)


The Number of the Beast is undeniably one of metal's all-time classic albums, so it makes perfect sense that a band like Dream Theater, whose early sound was equal parts Iron Maiden and Rush, would cover it. I think they did the album justice. You know that musicians of Dream Theater's caliber aren't going to screw up, so the focus is really on vocalist James LaBrie to seal the deal. It's just not possible to imitate the great Bruce Dickinson, but LaBrie acquits himself pretty well here. Songs like Invaders and Run to the Hills prove to be a bit much for him, but he absolutely nails Children of the Damned, Hallowed Be Thy Name and the title track. The band's lounge version of Gangland is an interesting touch. I don't love it, but I'll give them credit for shaking things up a bit. I'm still not sure why the band skipped Total Eclipse though.
