park triggers maiden fans

with the following sincere ranking and genuine thoughts
17Iron Maiden
Virtual XI

Honestly Blayze Bayley Finnegan the 3rd is fine as a singer, he's at least adequate if nothing else. What's less adequate are the lyrics and the rest of the songwriting. I feel some of the misplaced anger directed at him has more to do with the bizarre unrelenting repetition of refrains on some of these songs. I mean fuck, listen to The Angel and the Gambler, it sounds like they were gunning for some kind of Guinness World Record.

Senjutsu and Book of Souls are more or less equally uninspired, trite, pointless, bloated and self-indulgent.

The X Factor

This one has some moments actually, and again nothing wrong with BBF3's singing. But what's killer here is the length, it ends up feeling so drawn out. Really foreshadowed their 21st century stuff didn't it...
13Iron Maiden
Dance of Death

Dance of Deaf and Amoled screen are more or less equally... meh. Some moments here and there but still way too long for being diluted retreads of BNW.

Fear of the Dark

As much as I like the title track, and believe me I do like it, this album is painfully inconsistent. That one song is all that saves it from the wallows of mediocrity, and ironically enough this has way more shameless dumbed down cock rockers than the unfairly maligned No Prayer...
10Iron Maiden
The Final Frontier

The best of the post-BNW albums, it has actual cool moments on it! Actually starts off kinda strong with two good tracks. Still too long though...
9Iron Maiden
Brave New World

I can definitely see why folks who drool all over Somewhere in Time and Seventh Son would love this, seeing as it has more similarity with those than with any of the even older albums. It's nice, kinda tame in comparison though.
8Iron Maiden
No Prayer for the Dying

This album is fun. I like this album. People say I hate fun but I like this album. Mike Stagno says this is as big of a fall from grace as Avenged Sevenfold's. I say nobody who compares this band to Avenged Sevenfold should be allowed to write music reviews on this website. :] seriously though its not as good as the 80s stuff but its pretty good for what it is and def better than the rest.
7Iron Maiden
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son

The Sound of Perseverance and Faux-Prog for People Who Don't Know Much About Prog... cuz if they did it should be blindingly fucking obvious that Powerslave and even Somewhere in Time were proggier than this lol, I mean have you even heard Rime of the Ancient Mariner?? Poser! That said, and not without some irony, the most straightforward songs here like The Evil that Men Do and Only the Good Die Young are probably the best. Not Heaven Can Wait though, that one is more like Heaven Can Blow Chunkz and GTFOH.
6Iron Maiden
Piece of Mind

Absolutely hard carried by The Trooper and To Tame A Land. Without those it would be the most unremarkable of the classic era. But man do they slay m/ m/
5Iron Maiden

I've honestly come around to this one recently, it's probably the most underrated of their 80s stuff. I wish I liked more of the actual songs because this is probably Maiden at their most aggressive and energetic. And fuck man, listen to fucking Genghis Khan, shit is proto tech metal bash that melts ur face with hard cocks of truth and whatnot m/ m/ m/
4Iron Maiden
Somewhere in Time

Bit dliuted streamlining of the Powerslave sound, still fun, catchy, intense and one hell of a ride
3Iron Maiden
The Number of the Beast

Somewhat inconsistent, but when it hits it fucking hits. Invaders, T/T, Hallowed be thy Name, absolute bangers of the highest order.
2Iron Maiden

Maiden contributed to the foundation of the nascent mid 80s prog metal genre with their most thoroughly excellent and consistent album. Not a single weak moment here from beginning to end, and the last two tracks especially destroy almost everything they'd do after save for like Alexander the Great and maybe a couple others.

Iron Maiden

A legendary turning point in the history of metal, building upon the speed of Motorhead and late 70s Priest like Exciter and Dissident Aggressor with unusual melodies (at least by rock standards of the time) inspired by Thin Lizzy and fantastic musicianship. Out with the old rockin, in with the new wave of metal. The fact that a timeless barnstormer like Phantom of the Opera was written in 1979 makes most of your favourite rock and metal bands look like absolute clueless neanderthals by comparison. Bloody hell
