Somewhere In time, A Matter Of Life And Death, Seventh Son and Piece Of Mind are all better than this by a long way

This is better than all of those. Piece of Mind is way too inconsistent to rival this album. This is only marginally better than the other 3 though.

The Number of the Beast hardly gets mentioned on best Maiden discussions on here.

Watch your language. You've seen wrong. Most times it's between Powerslave and Seventh Son. The Number Of The Beast is mentioned rarely.

Ye powerslave and 7th son are better than beast.

I prefer their first two to all the others though because i like Di'annos punky vocals whereas Bruce has an amazing voice but can't sing.

Digging: Different Strings - The Sounds of Silence, Pt. II: The Counterfeits

3rd best after Number of the Beast and Powerslave. Piece of Mind is the only 80's Maiden album that can be called inconsistent, as Jamie already pointed out. Most of their weaker material just lacks inspiration and/or is too repetitive (90's output mostly), but Quest for Fire is just bad.



still never heard the first 2 Maidens.



i know i know




Shame on you, shame.

Yes some of the notes he can hit, his screams and the sheer power - he has an amazing voice.

I still think he can't really sing though, his phrasing is comedically bad sometimes and he totally lacks any versatility in style. Thankfully the quality of the music makes up for it.

I can actually agree with this to a certain extent.

manosg is right! The Number Of the Beast is rarely mentioned here. Come on guys, Number Of The Beast is the most influential metal album! It's full of epic songs such as Children Of The Damned, Hallowed Be Thy Name, 22 Acacia Avenue, Run To The Hills, Number Of The Beast, what else can be said about that masterpiece?! As for their debut album, Strange World is my favourite song. Great memories...

Digging: Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
