Amazon.co.uk

This opening sonic salvo from Steve Harris's East End stalwarts pretty much defined the late 1970's post-punk rebirth of rock traditionalism known as the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal. Featuring the strident cockney roar of the band's original lead vocalist Paul Di'Anno, Iron Maiden capitalised on the band's enormous grass-roots live following by storming immediately into the upper reaches of the album chart. A perfect balance of the irresistibly catchy ("Running Free"), the intricately epic ("Phantom Of The Opera") and the roguishly profane ("Charlotte The Harlot"), it's an assured debut, superficially marred by somewhat pedestrian production values. Newly enhanced with the addition of video clips and assorted other multimedia goodies, Iron Maiden--specifically the blazing, fretboard ferocity of its closing title track--is an utterly essential element of any self-respecting metal-head's record collection. Furious, whiplash headbanging is not so much recommended as completely unavoidable. --Ian Fortnam

Just listened to this album right through for the first time in years. I used to love it as a teenager and it still makes me wanna freak out. This album is still as jaw-droppingly amazing as the first time.

What amazes most is how fresh it all sounds and how un-self-consciously inventive...the best songs (Running Free, Phantom, Charlotte) have tempo and style changes, covering hard rock, hammering metal, punk (yes punk, how could they not have been influenced by it, it was 1980 for pete's sake), funk rock and even the soulful break on Charlotte. Yet none of it sounds dated. They were obviously still looking for a sound that would fit and it's a thrill to explore that world on the cusp of the 70s/80s with them.

In fact, now it's even better for just checking how many bands have ripped off every riff, every guitar lick and every snarl in Paul Dianno's red raw larynx.

Everybody from G'n'R, Nirvana, to the QOTSA and White Stripes seem to have had a piece away.

Surely that's greatest compliment anyone could ever pay to this fantastic album.

Just buy it!

This debut album from one of the most influential metal outfits of all time is what classic metal is all about.
Stuff "Appetite for destruction" ! This is it. The two are just not compareable in any way, shape or form. This is solid, astonishing heavy metal. The other is "rock"....end of story.
Paul di'Anno's vocal talent is a subject of much debate amongst Maiden fans, but I say if you rate this album, then you rate the vocals... I think they fit the sound. He wouldn't have done too well of Number of the beast and on, but he wasn't on them , so lets leave it alone!
Prowler, although not a Maiden classic, is a pretty good opener. Its got all the ingredients of a good metal tune. Thumping drums, chunky opening guitars and some furious soloing.
Sanctuary is fast and racy.
Rememeber Tomorrow is a great song. it takes you from slow involved listening to all out head shaking madness in the blink of an eye.
Running Free is a global Maiden anthem and thats all you need to say!
Phantom', the ever lasting Lucozade Theme (remember that?) is an epic song that showed the band were not just another long haired bunch of noise makers.
Transylvania has some blinding guitar work, but alas its my least fave song on the album. It does however, contrast nicely with Strange world which again is very moody and slow.
Charlotte the Harlot is my personal favorite. The opening is good, but the best bit (on song and album I feel) comes about 2 minutes 45 seconds into the song. This transition from slow pace to blistering lead guitar madness is just as dynamic and furious as any early slayer or Exodus break.
Iron Maiden is a good song that everyone can sing along to.
This album is an eternal classic.

The first two albums, this one and killers, hold some real nostalgia for me and as a Rock/Metal enthusiast I can say you'll not regret buying any of them!
What did surprise me was the added bonus of DVD's being included on these 'multimedia discs' - BUY them!

In terms of music progression, so much can be achieved in such a short time if you have the drive,determination and above all, talent.Think of where the Beatles started (Please Please Me)and it is staggering to think that only 5 years later,there was Sgt Pepper. Or the journey from Keep Yourself Alive to Bohemian Rhapsody in only 3 years of recording. (Contrast the 13 years before the charred remains of Guns n Roses dignity finally spat out the by word for "Thanks lads but you really shouldn'tve bothered"rock mess of Chinese Democracy.It doesn't always follow)
In rock, there is no doubt the bar has been significantly raised over the years, and although it's ok to be ok (eg Saxon) If you want to make it, you have to be better than good right from the get go. Which brings me to this release. Steve Harris was never that happy with the production on the original,( I have not heard what he thinks of any remastering,) but there is little doubt the quality of the songs, the arrangements and above all the playing on this album makes it an outstanding debut release for so many reasons.

Maiden were a different animal back then. The songs were influenced by the usual rock star outlaw fantasies with a healthy dose of horror movie imagery. Sharp lead guitar, tight disciplined songs with hooks, and choruses (thankfully falling short of the "anthemic" trap)a post punk aggressive rhythm and solid, though it has to be said, unspectacular drumming (that would come with Nicko's arrival).Then there was Paul. Spiky hair, leather jacket,bullet belt, studded wristband and a punk/metal growl and howl. he encapsulated everything about the new confrontational metal attitude.He fitted perfectly.

1: Prowler: As the firt song many maidenites heard, this is a crucial song in their career, and one that doesn't dissapoint. this is proper metal, with a slight punkish tint, but definatley NOT PUNK. Also there is a great solo by dave murray
2: Sancturary: Originally only as a non album single, but is on the remastered CD version. mainly one riff, the studio version sounds slightly flat thanks to lukewarm production, but the song comes alive on stage.
3: Remember tommorow: more of a ballad type song, but better than the usual 'i love you' crap thanks to Great guitar work.
4: Running free: As a first single, this one was always going to be the catchy commercial one. Running free accomplishes this perfectly, without shedding its obviously metal skin.
5: Phantom of the opera: If theres one thing maiden are famous for, it's epics lasting 6:30 or longer. This one has some truly inspired guitar work andset the standard for epics like rime of the aincent mariner and sighn of the cross.
6: Transylvania: Continuing on from phantom of the opera would always be a tricky act, so the best idea was to put on an instrumental that continued the same atmosphere, as a pleasant comedown from the albums majestic centrepiece.
7: Strange world: Similar in style to remember tomorrow, yet softer, more subtle and more atteneion to detail.
8: Charlotte the harlot: With a name like this, you can tell that no-one really expected anything more than a gimmicky pop song, but they were wrong. This one is short and catchy, but also a highlight with good guitar work and punk edged metal type riffs.
9: Iron maiden: The closer of an album of this calibre must be something special, and is accomplished perfectly with this anthemic piece, which maiden have played at every show ever to date.
