I'm used to the "purist" opinion that nothing after David Vincent left is worth listening to, since that's what I grew up with. Disregard them then.

Good topic!

If there is one album that I've debated over this with people the most, it's "Swansong" by Carcass. I absolutely love that record. It kinda brought me full circle back to the stuff I had thought I grew out of when I got into death metal. It still had Bill Steer's guitar playing and Jeff Walker's voice, but the songs made me want to break out with all my old Maiden and Megadeth tapes. I love this album so much that my old band actually covered "Child's Play."

Also, both Blaze era Maiden records. I do agree with what has been said here about some of the songs being a bit on the long side, but really they have a couple songs like that from just about every era of the band. I think the only thing that kept that line up from being more successful was that Blaze, while a great singer, wasn't better than Bruce.

I can think of three songs in Maiden's discography where cutting them in half would make them twice as good. You wouldn't even have to re-arrange it and edit different parts out, just take an axe and chop them in half. Even with an abrupt ending and without the closing bits they would still be much better because they're just too goddamn long for no reason. Those three would be Angel and the Gambler, The Nomad, and Dream of Mirrors. Dream of Mirrors is the most minor offender of the three though.

And yeah, either of those songs would sound amazing live with Bruce.

I'm semi-inclined to agree but I'd consider half of Killers and about half off Fear of the Dark at least mediocre.

I don't think I really like any 'hated' or 'bad' albums really. I guess I could throw Load and ReLoad in there though. I don't listen to them a whole lot, but when I do I enjoy it.

EDIT: Actually, I like Overkill's I Hear Black more than most people probably do.

Erm... what else? Did everyone hate the last three of Ozzy records? Because I love those. Probably a bunch others for whom it's cool to hate all of their post-best-album material.

That's got to be one of the most bland albums I've ever heard outside of 2 or 3 tracks.

I love Scream and Black Rain is alright.

Scream was a breath of fresh air without having to hear a pinch harmonic every 3 seconds.
