Iron Maiden Albums Ranking!

J. M. Salinas
 
The Number Of The Beast
The Number Of The Beast
"An instant classic. Absolutely no fillers, Maiden at their best doing what they know best."
Iron Maiden
Iron Maiden
"Their debut album had a rawness that was never to last. Had the production been a bit better, it would have been number one on the list."
Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
"It was a failed stab at a concept album, but the collection of songs is superb with Maiden dabling (modestly) with synths and keyboards. After all, it  was the 80s."
Dance Of Death
Dance Of Death
"The second album after the second coming of Bruce Dickinson, it seems more accomplished that its predecessor "Brave New World"."
Somewhere In Time
Somewhere In Time
"I like this one because it holds better as a unit than Powerslave or Piece of Mind, with just eight songs, it sounds tight and to the point, introducing keyboards to Maiden for the first time."
Powerslave
Powerslave
"Powerslave and Piece of Mind are really interchangeable, with Maiden repeating a formula that brought them world domination and huge success."
Piece Of Mind
Piece Of Mind
"Good album repeating the themes of Number of the Beast. Sees the arrival of Nicko!"
A Matter of Life and Death
A Matter of Life and Death
"Instead of getting stuck in a rut and repeat another Dance of Death, Maiden go prog, but remain Maiden. It works!!!"
The X-Factor
The X-Factor
"This is a tricky one. Blaze was no Dickinson, that's for sure, but it brought a gloomier aura to the music. Not an easy first listen, it is a grower."
Brave New World
Brave New World
"The first album with the three guitar formation. It has a few good songs, but maybe it drags on for too long."
Fear Of The Dark
Fear Of The Dark
"Bein the early 90s, this sounds more rock and roll less metal (for Maiden standards). Some hits, some misses, two songs too many."
Killers
Killers
"The second and last album with original singer Paul Di'Anno. Some classics and some fillers. The vocals sound a bit tired."
No Prayer For The Dying
No Prayer For The Dying
"The album Adrain Smith left half way recording. It has some good tracks and an unlikely UK n.1 with "Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter". Lots of fillers."
Virtual XI
Virtual XI
"There a couple of good songs and some serious crap in here. It just isn't good enough."
