    Well melvyn did an amazing job making virtual xi's cover!

    And btw the only reference that i already knew from the somewhere in time cover was the 2 mins to midnight reference... But the sad thing is that the 2mins2midnight reference that i got was from stranger in a strange land's single cover...

    enjoy
    thank you very much, thats great :-) i think i like the somewhere in time cover the most, but plenty of them are really epic...

    You must have been looking at the CD and not the LP album cover... when you hold the actual album 12" cover in your hands, you can't help but get drawn in on all those tiny little details hidden away in there. The art for those Derek Riggs albums were designed for that size... where everything after that 80's era was designed for CD releases. Something really got lost with album art when the compact disc took over (I don't just mean for Maiden, but for the entire music industry). If an artist ever tried to put that much detail into an album cover in the 90s, it just got lost and unnoticed... never to be really appreciated.

    Sadly, I lost all my Maiden albums in a flood that hit my storage unit, so that is why I put together that collection of hi-res Maiden album covers.

    Artisto4... Thanks so much for that link! Great fansite, and it made me aware of so many more references that I didn't totally understand before!

    Try the album section too, pressing on every studio album's cover....a ton of info about every individual song, which I also had no idea about until I found this site 10 years ago

    I will have to spend some time in this site!

    I also really enjoyed this site:
    https://maidenrevelations.com

    He does some really good 'retro reviews' of the albums, and his historic blogs are amazing - chronicling the classic era Maiden through the 80s! I learned a lot from his writing.
