Out of the Silent Planet
It didn't cut down on the repetition though, only the song length, which means less of the verses. It's a poor editing job.
Ok, check this edited version then, it's 6,28 minutes long:And no way should they have used the video edit. I agree with Diesel and many others about it keeping the repetition in play and cutting out one of the strongest aspects of the song, the third verse. Just my opinion of course. The album version is indeed quite stretched, but I don't find the video edit as a big improvement anyway.
(it has both solos, not only Dave's solo like on the official video)
EDIT: the second clip is a short version of the song officially released by Maiden on the CD single.
Even Maiden cut it down to 7 minutes live
I beg to differ. As @Randalf said, they're good (#2 and especially #3) and better than a lot of the singles covers from the reunion. Only TWM, TROBB and EOTC singles covers are far better.All three TAATG covers are okay but poor for Maiden.
