Since it was released during those days when the music industry was dead set in their belief that CDs were the best and only format for music, Tyranny Of Souls did not originally see a vinyl release. This seemed like an odd decision, considering that Maiden have always provided a vinyl option...even if it was just a shitty picture disc...and even Dance Of Death (2003) and A Matter Of Life And Death (2006) were pressed on vinyl at the time. I guess Dickinson's solo album didn't carry the same weight as Maiden, and it took until 2017 for us to see the vinyl for Tyranny Of Souls, which was part of a re-issue campaign for all the Dickinson solo stuff.
This album can stand shoulder to shoulder with Maiden's output since Bruce reunited with the band in 2000. So glad to finally have it in my record collection.
