Just checked the lyrics and couldn't find any offensve words - never noticed any before either. I can't imagine Maiden releasing a special 'swear-words-included' edition of an album; it could just be a mistake on the part of Amazon. That's all I can think of.

Never heard about this......... There's no way that the songs on TXF are edited to suit a non-explicit content....

The only song which has this, as far as I know, is Holy Smoke, which "beatiful" version has the word SHIT kind of muted

Is that a fact? My opinion: ridiculous.

About the Holy Smoke CENSORED version ? (now I remembered how its named)

Yes it is, but I can't say in which country the single with this singular version has been released


EDITING: A little search in the commnetary and got this Bootleg

as far as I know, Maiden had a few problems with the cover image.
They've been "warned" that it's too explicit. That's why they made the two sided cover, so they could still sell it in shops without the fear of being indexed.

Maybe Amazon fucked up there

I thought the Censored version only exsisted as a promo? Thought the story was BBC wouldn't play it because of the "offensive" language (shit). Funny, as if BBC would ever play it anyways [!--emo&:huh:--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/huh.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'huh.gif\' /][!--endemo--]
