I'm not 100% sure, but I think this was the first Maiden album that I actually physically bought. What a fucking comeback of an album this is! Every song here feels like its own little mini-epic and has so much instrumentation and melody and one of Bruce's best vocal performances. Sure it's not as IN YOUR FACE as 80s Maiden was, but this album proves that they don't need to be!
It was the very first metal CD I physically bought too. Before that I had only bought the mp3 versions of SiT and Powerslave because I didn't want my parents to see the covers.
