4.0 out of 5 stars Piece of Cake., 24 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Piece Of Mind (Audio CD)
With this album from 1983 Iron Maiden consolidated their status as Kings of Metal. New drummer Nico McBrain completed what is regarded as the classic Maiden line-up, bringing a touch of insanity with his larger than life personality and this is reflected on the album cover, which shows band mascot Eddie as an inmate in a lunatic asylum.
Opening track 'Where Eagles Dare' is based on the World War II film of the same name and sets the tone for the whole album with its relentless pounding and galloping bass lines which are an important part of the Iron Maiden sound. 'Revelations' became a live favourite over the next 2 years and is one of the few songs to get fans of the band to wave lighters in the air in true metal fashion. The great anthemic song on the album is 'Flight of Icarus' but the song to make most impact with the fans is 'The Trooper' which sees Eddie in the uniform of a British soldier during the Crimean War.
Despite all this my personal favourite track is 'Sun and Steel' because it is one of the most melodic songs from the band and helps make side 2 of the album almost as strong as side 1. This is as good a Maiden album to start with as any other for people interested in finding out what the fuss is all about.
