TOP 500 REVIEWERon 29 July 2016
A lot of Iron Maiden fans rag on about this album as being one of their worst albums. This is something that I have strongly felt was untrue for multiple reasons.

First off I have always enjoyed the more down to earth raw sound that the band have opted for. Had they stuck with the same sound they used for Seventh Son of The Seventh Son, I feel they would of came across as quite dated and ended up in a situation where people would of labelled them as "just another '80s" band.

There is also a matter of the songs presented here. Tailgunner and Holy Smoke are really good songs. They are up there with some of the band's better numbers and really are quite underappreciated. But other songs like Fates Warning, The Assassin and Hooks In You are also pretty fun songs. They are by no means ground breaking, but they are also far from bad songs. The hit single Bring Your Daughter... To The Slaughter is a fun catchy song that for some reason is now considered to be pretty poor. It is interesting to see how trends change over the years.

No Prayer For The Dying is far from a bad album and it is one I have always enjoyed. Much like Fear of the Dark and X-Factor, it has quite a bad rep for absolutely no reason. If you enjoy a good bit of hard rock and heavy metal, this is and always will be a good purchase.

This is an Album like Marmite you either love it or hate it, I "like" it Maiden's sound has changed slightly and that's not a bad thing, if you listen to it with an open mind and don't compare it to it's predecessors its a good album, the Lyrics are a bit different but they work in my opinion, best tracks on here are "Tail Gunner", "Holy Smoke", the title track "Assassin" and of course "Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter"

So Listen to "No Prayer For The Dying" with an open mind and not to compare with "Powerslave", "Number of The Beast" etc. And just enjoy it for what it is a good Metal Album

Great to have these vinyl reissues for the collection, shame about the clanger of a misprint in the lyrics to 'Holy Smoke' on the inner sleeve, verses missing, some added in from the next song. Anyone else have this problem? Minor quibble.
