Major fanboyism.
I am with you on both songs. I've thought The Thin line is incredible, and has a totally amazing emotional vibe Maiden practically never do. Particularly with the "I will hope - my soul will fly" bit. It is in my top 20 songs.

And yeah, The Wicker Man. In truth it is basically the song that made me fall in love with Maiden. I heard about a dozen before-hand, all of which I liked, but that chorus was just earth-shattering to my then practically virgin ears. But time hasn't served it well. I don't favor it in the top half of the album.

But I got to give massive props to Blood Brothers and the title track, which are the other top 20 songs of mine. Can't quite put my finger on it, but those two songs just get me in such a way.

Nicko says "I fucking missed it!" and then you hear a recording of two other members (not sure who) laughing about it.

I would've thought you were above this line of thinking when it comes to judging music, especially rock, and especially Maiden.

All I can say to your post is Motorhead

My point is JRA, when it comes to music and art, "its not what you say, its how you say it". We'll leave it at that.

It's a case by case basis. Motorhead have the reputation for putting out the same album over and over again though, with practically no subtle differences.

Maiden on the other hand do not have that reputation. And they've put out the same album 3 times in a row now.

Disagree with the last statement. Since BNW each album has gotten more hard rock/prog/mellow than the previous one.

BNW= The Wicker Man, Ghost of the Navigator, Mercenary, Fallen Angel
DOD= Wildest Dreams, Rainmaker, Gates of Tomorrow, New Frontier
AMOLAD= Different World, Lord of Light (kinda)

Less heavy in general, longer songs, acoustic intros/outros, yadda yadda yadda. Comes with age too.

I thought some of the songs on AMOLAD were heavy as balls, just not throughout the whole song. I think The Longest Day was one of them. Or Brighter Than A Thousand Suns.
