|are these in order? i've got number of the beast and that's awesome!|
|Sometimes I think Powerslave is their best, then I think Somewhere In Time is... I can't choose between those two. All of Maiden's albums, with the exception of a few, are amazing.|
|oh so harsh|
|Sorry mate, but IMO Piece of Mind isn't even close to being the best Maiden album. Quest for Fire and Sun and Steel totally ruin it for me.|
My top 5 are actually the D'Ianno albums, NoTB, Powerslave and AMOLAD, probably in that order as well. Saw them in Bergen, Norway, last month. God, they were so awesome! Maybe the best concert experience in my life.
|BTW, how come you've rated Powerslave 5, but Piece of Mind 4,5 if you think Piece of Mind's better?|
|Piece of Mind is the worst out of these five. Seventh Son...should replace it...but not for 1st place.|
|I like Blaze. His singing was far better than anything Dickinson had been doing for Maiden at that point in time.|
Of those 5 I'd have...
Live After Death
Somewhere in Time
The Number of the Beast
Piece of Mind
|Blaze is definitely not as good as Bruce.|
However, the live rendition of Afraid to Shoot Strangers with Blaze is simply amazing.
|this list is all wrong:|
1 - ssoass
2 - no of the beast
3 - fear of the dark
4 - brave new world
5 - matter of life and death
