Their 80's material can be seen as one long epic mini series that you have to consider as a whole. I haven't voted since it is impossible to pick one out. I admit that the first album is the least of the great works for me. A bit shaky that one with too many "softies" on it. It has the monumental Phantom though.

After Seventh Son it went downhill fast. No Prayer and Fear are very inconsistent with a few nice tracks but you can hear the band has burned out by now. The Blaze stuff is horrible. The Brave comeback was a fun ride....Dance of Death still has it's moments....the last 2 are so utterly booooring and loooong....uurghh. Like undergoing water torture with a drop at a time on your head. Drives you insane.

The X Factor gets no love. A great and dark album, and it's so much better than the boring garbage they make now.

Bollocks the X factor is fuckin gash, I thought final frontier was canny, had 7/8 belting songs on it, and star blind and the talisman as good as many maiden songs.

Agree with this. SIT/SSOASS is the peak of classic 80s metal in my eyes. Fear of the Dark is a stronger album than No Prayer imo, though both are loaded with fillers. BNW the best of the reunion material. DOD starting to lose steam but still not completely hopeless. AMOLAD, a drag. Haven't followed them since.

That is the weakest song off the album for me. Removing the last two tracks off TFF would have really enhanced it.

Powerslave, and that never changes.

Somewhere in Time, it features all the strong points of the band and no weakness/fillers. It also features one of the most underrated (and thus, one of the very best) tracks they ever did: The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner.

Piece of Mind would a sorta close second.

As if "Sea of Madness" isn 't a filler. I don't like "Heaven Can Wait" either, but I can see why it is a single. However, "Alexander the Great" still gives me goosebumps. Perhaps my favorite Iron Maiden song. I voted for Piece of Mind, but my favorite always changes...

Donít think ďHeaven...Ē was ever released as a single. Wasted Years/Stranger were the two singles. Now that I think about that, itís strange as that is the only other song off that record that they kept playing live besides Wasted Years.

It's probably due the fact Dickinson was marginalized from the songwriting of the album. They just finished a long as fuck tour and Bruce was in no shape to collaborate with good ideas. Everything he showed to the band was scrapped for being shitty, so I guess he doesn't feel too involved with that album (the absolute opposite case is 7th).

Can we all agree that Where Eagles Dare is one of the best pieces of music written in metal history ?
