|Iron Maiden Albums Ranked|
All Maiden albums are awesome! Up the Irons!
Somewhere in Time
Powerslave, ROTAM, Aces High, 2 Minutes to Midnight. That's basically enough for it to become the best. The only reason why it's #2 is because of the similarities between the Duelists and Losfer Words.
Piece of Mind
Well, even Quest For Fire is awesome, despite the innacurate lyrics. But who gives a fuck, TROOPER, REVELATIONS, FLIGHT OF ICARUS...
The Number of the Beast
Total Eclipse is... totally forgettable, Gangland is underrated, Invaders is a good song, but a meh opener (they could've put the title track instead).
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
A great concept album, title track is probably the most epic song in all of Maiden discography.
Basically a completely different band, really more of a punk-rock alum, but I love it. Transylvania is the best instrumental in metal. Period.
The Final Frontier
My first contact of Maiden when I was 7, the cover art scared the shit out of me lmao. The Talisman, Starblind and When the Wild Wind Blows are my favorite songs!
A Matter of Life and Death
I love the opener and closer tracks, they would rank high in top 10 modern Maiden songs list. Makes you think how war is hell on earth.
The Book of Souls
Again, If Eternity Should Fail- holy shit it has to be in top 5 modern Maiden songs, also Empire of the Clouds- woah. The intro to the title track is beautiful
Dance of Death
Waaay underrrated. Paschendale, No More Lies and title track are fucking god-tier, but Wildest Dreams and Gates of Tomorrow are meh (especially the latter).
Brave New World
I know, this is too low. I just think that it's a bit overrated. The closer is pretty mediocre, The Wicker Man and Blood Brothers are great. And Dream of Mirrors. And the title track. And Ghost of the Navigator. Fuck, it should be higher...
Wrathchild and Purgatory are fatherfuckers (in a good way), Murders in the Rue Morgue and Killers are also great, but that's it, honestly.
Fear of the Dark
Obviously the title track, but there are more hidden gems like Afraid to Shoot Strangers, Be Quick or Be Dead, Wasting Love, Judas Be My Guide.
The X Factor
The better of the two Blaze albums, the first three (especially Sign of the Cross) are great, probably Judgement of Heaven and... the rest is wtf.
No Prayer for the Dying
Tailgunner, Mother Russia. BYDTTS is ok, Holy Smoke is ok as well... I guess?
The Clansman and Como Estais Amigos (which is very underrrated) are good, the rest is wtf as well.
