Iron Maiden Ranked

A glimpse at my last.fm account will show that I have listened to Iron Maiden nearly 300 times this past week. I "got hold of" the rest of their discography after only owning NOTB through Seventh Son for years. Basically, they've been the only band i've been listening to these past few weeks. This was a really hard list to do, one and two are essentially interchangable, and it's likely to shuffle around in the middle a little bit. But here it is. Expect a ranked Maiden song list soon.
1Iron Maiden
Powerslave


Not the most original choice for the #1 Maiden album, but this very, very barely edges out SiT for the spot. While the middle section is definitely weaker than the bookends, I still love every second of the tracks. Plus, the bookend tracks are all just about perfect. If the whole album was to that quality, this would be an easy 5/5 for me, but i'm holding it at a 4.5 for now. Rime of the Ancient Mariner is currently my favorite Maiden track.
2Iron Maiden
Somewhere in Time


This album is more consistent in terms of quality when compared to Powerslave. However, what keeps it from being first on my list, is that it lacks the amount of definite, classic standout tracks that Powerslave possesed. The "title track" and "The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner" are both in my top 10 Maiden tracks, but those are the only two I consider to be true highlights. Still, an easy 4.5 and a very fiun listen.
3Iron Maiden
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son


Much like SiT, this album is very consistent quality-wise for the most part. However, it is a little bit weaker, and slightly less memorable than it's predecessor imo. The title track is easily one of the band's best songs, and I can throw Infinite Dreams, Moonchild, and The Evil That Men Do as standouts as well. However, The Prophecy and Can I Play With Madness? are noticably weaker than the other songs. All great material here though.
4Iron Maiden
Brave New World


My favorite new Iron Maiden album. The repetitions of the choruses are horribly annoying at times (especially in the title track, which would be one of the band's best songs if the chorus wasn't so boring) but there really isn't a bad song on here. Ghost of the Navigator and Out of the Silent Planet are my favorites, but Dream of Mirrors has been growing on me lately.
5Iron Maiden
A Matter of Life and Death


I love the darker atmosphere present on this album. That said, it does drag a little bit towards the end, and it isn't as consistent as it could be as an album. For the Greater Good of God is easily my favorite song, but i'm not too fond of Benjamin Breeg or Lord of Light.
6Iron Maiden
Iron Maiden


I was surprised by this album. I don't really have much to say about it except it's a blast to listen to. Running Free is really weak compared to the other tracks though, and it just seems like a tailor-made single.
7Iron Maiden
Dance of Death


This has grown off of me since I first heard it, but still contains some of the band's best material, such as Paschendale, and Montsegur. Gates of Tomorrow kinda sucks though, and Age of Innocence is unmemorable.
