Sym Ranks Iron Maiden

I had to do an Iron Maiden ranking eventually, c'mon
16Iron Maiden
Virtual XI

4.88/10 - Is anyone surprised? This record is just not pleasant. The Clansman lands a 10, Futureal gets a 9, fuck everything else on this disc. Though, I will say, The Educated Fool is almost an okay song.
15Iron Maiden
Fear of the Dark

6.33/10 - Three 10s here, which pull it up drastically. Wasting Love and Weekend Warrior are fucking awful. Everything else ranges from a 5 to a 7. I would normally place this above NPFTD, mostly due to Be Quick or Be Dead, Judas Be My Guide, and the title track but the shite songs on here are smellier.
14Iron Maiden
No Prayer for the Dying

6.60/10 - Really shocked how close this ended up to TBOS in terms of score, but you can chock that up to all the filler on there. Holy Smoke, Fates Warning, and The Assassin score a 9 for me. Title track and Hooks In You are at the bottom with a 4. Rest of this is inoffensive to good.
13Iron Maiden
The Book of Souls

6.64/10 - TOO MUCH FILLER. Cut this down to a single disc and it'd likely be a few spots higher. Favorite track is the title track. Man of Sorrows is the definite lowlight.
12Iron Maiden

6.90/10 - Too many duds on here. Debut just absolutely slays this record; I'll never understand those who prefer this for the Paul era. Four tracks at an 8 or higher, title track being the sole 10. Prodigal Son is the worst here.
11Iron Maiden
Brave New World

6.90/10 - I've always considered this the weakest reunion era album, but TBOS just really REAAAAALLY needed to be 2 discs, right? Anyway, Blood Brothers brings this album down drastically. Easily a bottom 3 Iron Maiden track. The closer here is pretty weak as well, but the rest rocks.
10Iron Maiden
The Final Frontier

7.00/10 - A consistently good to great album with a massive standout being Mother of Mercy
9Iron Maiden
Dance of Death

7.10/10 - Journeyman is sooooooooo boring. There are plenty of incredible songs here though, such as the title track, Pascendale, and Rainmaker.
8Iron Maiden
The X Factor

7.45/10 - Such an underappreciated gem here. There's only a couple tracks here I'd consider average, meanwhile songs like Sign of the Cross and Blood on the World's Hands are some of the band's best. I've been a fan of this one since I first heard it, but it has only grown on me with time.
7Iron Maiden
Piece of Mind

7.56/10 - Revelations, Still Life, and To Tame a Land really hinder this album for me, as everything else is an 8 or higher, with Trooper being a 10.
6Iron Maiden
A Matter of Life and Death

8.40/10 - Far and away the best reunion album. It's no contest, really. Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg and For the Greater Good of God are two of my favorite IM songs, and nearly everything else here is excellent in its own right. Though, I'd say Out of the Shadows is a slight dud.
5Iron Maiden
Iron Maiden

8.50/10 - Charlotte the Harlot really drags this record down. Everything else here is just -mwah-
4Iron Maiden
The Number of the Beast

8.63/10 - Of course this has to be high up here, it has so many classics. I'm not much of a fan of Children of the Damned, though. Funnily enough, I find songs like Invaders and Gangland to be perfectly wonderful
3Iron Maiden
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son

8.63/10 - A seriously incredible album hindered by two songs that, while fine on their own, pale in comparison to the rest of the disc. Those being Infinite Dreams and The Prophecy.
2Iron Maiden

9.38/10 - A nearly perfect record, brought down ever so slightly by Flash of the Blade and The Duellists, which are still great songs, mind you.
1Iron Maiden
Somewhere in Time

9.75/10 - Alexander the Great is just a liiiitle weak compared to everything else on display. Everything else is perfect. This one has been my favorite IM record for years, and I don't see that ever changing.
