|Iron Maiden Albums, From Best To Worst.|
There is no secret that I am a huge fan of Iron Maiden. But how do I rank their impressive catalogue? Well, here is the list:
In my opinion, the best Iron Maiden ablum, and possibly also one of the best metal albums ever.
A Matter Of Life And Death
This album really surprised me, and I consider it better than alot of their 80s albums. (I know, it's blasphemy :P)
Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
While compared to other concept albums, the story may be a bit hard to understand, but the musicianship is excellent.
Piece Of Mind
With drummer Nicko McBrain onboard, Iron Maiden creates an excellent album. This album also houses the ever so popular "The Trooper".
The Number Of The Beast
After the punkish records with Paul Di' Anno, Iron Maiden needed a vocalist of Bruce Dickinsons caliber. Bruce is today seen as one of the greatest vocalists ever, and it's not hard to see why.
The X Factor
Criminally underrated! Blaze Bayley prooves that Iron Maiden doesn't need Bruce Dickinson to create a masterpiece. The dark atmosphere suits Blaze's voice excellent, and the songs are amazing.
The Final Frontier
Their recent album shows that Maiden won't slow down even they are in their 50s. The intro really surprises, and the latter half of the album which consists of excellent epics, are breathtaking!
Somewhere In Time
Iron Maiden uses synth for the first time, and it works! Bruce Dickinson does his greatest performance ever on this album.
The debut is still considered a metal classic today. And it's not hard to see why.
Brave New World
A great "reunon" album. Bruce and Adrain in top form (as always).
The second album with Paul Di' Anno is weaker that their debut, but is still a raw and powerful record.
Dance Of Death
The weakest of the "reunion" albums, but still an amazing effort by the band.
Fear Of The Dark
Filled with fillers, this is a very weak Maiden album. A few gems here and there though. Bruce Dickinson's voice is more hard-rockish than metal.
After the excellent The X Factor, Maiden had a hard time making Blaze's voice suit their style. A lot of fillers.
No Prayer For The Dying
Iron Maiden's worst album ever! Weak songs all-over! Very few gems.
|Surprised you listed Final Frontier so high. It's a good album but most Maiden fans wouldn't list it so high. |
|5 is 1|
|Imo, 10 is way too low, and 6 and 9 are way too high. Agree that 15 is terrible, only song I liked there is Mother Russia.|
|such a crap list, 7 and 6 over 10 and 11 huh? MOTHER FUCK|
|Correct with 1, wtf on 2.|
|3 is number 1 but w/e. You have 1-10 here all rated as classic which is pretty facepalm on this site, you might want to readjust your ratings to seem a little less fanboyish and a little more objective.|
the Paul albums are also far far too low
|6 is way too high, Dance of Death is far too low. Good list/descriptions overall though.|
|MAIDEN FAN ALL UP IN THIS CUNT HE KNOWS THAT THIS SHIT IS RUN BY HIM, YOU MOTHERFUCKERS|
|1,3,5,8-10 in top 6|
2,6,12-15 average to terrible
|piece of mind FTW|
|they all suck compared to cowboys from hell and its progeny.|
|I know a lot of you disagree with me, but thats why we have opinions, right :P|
I genuinly love The X Factor. I think it is VERY underrated.
And when it comes to my high ratings, the ones i have rated 5, I can't really find any bad songs on them(with maybe the expetions of maybe 1 song).
Ok, maybe I should lower some of them (I'm still not quite sure if SIT and s/t deserves a 5) :D
