Is it just me or is Di'anno's voice muted on this remaster? Sounds like the vocal is mixed down compared to the other instruments....maybe it was that way originally...but certainly sounds better in the live recordings with Di'anno.
First of all, this is not the original cover. It's a nice updated version, but the original didn't really need updating.
As many have pointed out, "Sanctuary" is missing. It's one of the early hyper-fast songs that would place early Maiden as forefathers of "thrash-metal" (though I really hate that term).

No Sanctuary drops this big time. Prowler-Sanctuary is a one-two combo the newbies need to hear and understand
By Joe Coronel
I won’t buy this unless Sanctuary is added. That track was not included in the Iron Maiden UK debut release simply because Sanctuary was released as a single. However in the US and other markets, Sanctuary is included. Since we are in the US, I expect the track to be included. Anything other than the COMPLETE Iron Maiden debut is unacceptable.

Iron Maiden the self titled is perfect aged production and blend just amazing
An Essential! But Where’s “Sanctuary”?
This album is incomplete without Sanctuary. Why has it been removed? Please fix this
This album got me into Maiden and for good reason. It's amazing and unique. No other metal band is quite Iron Maiden. And nearly none can be as good
Why can't we just get the original album????
I mean come on.
Missing a biggie....but why?
By Fearless Clambake
Simply a classic but where is "Sanctuary?" That song completed this masterpiece.
