Probably my favourite IM album, either this or 'Powerslave'. 'The Prophecy' for me was a break for all the intensity of the title track and everything that went before it. For me, there is really nothing wrong with this album. Some may argue that the sythesisers are used incorrectly, but i would say they only enhanced the atmosphere created by the other instruments. An absolutely brilliant album, and perhaps Maiden's last truly great album.
