I haven't heard 'Final Frontier' yet, so no comment.

Ugh, I haven't tried to do this since TFF came out.

01.Somewhere In Time
02.Brave New World
03.Powerslave
04.Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
05.Piece of Mind
06.A Matter of Life and Death
07.The Final Frontier
08.Dance of Death
09.Number of the Beast
10.The X Factor
11.Fear of the Dark
12.Killers
13.Virtual XI
14.Iron Maiden
15.No Prayer For the Dying

I didn't put TOO much thought into this. Albums 1-5 are basically in one bracket, 6-10 in another, and then steadily going down from there. One album's specific number is no reason to make a big deal.

Also a few notes:

My general distaste for the first two albums isn't because I don't really like Di'Anno. I don't, but he definitely suited the music at the time. It's just that I just don't care enough for the music itself either way on the whole. Those who know what I listen to most of the time shouldn't be too surprised that I don't really care for the whole punk/metal hybrid thing. A lot of the material is fun live and fun to play, but there's maybe only 5 songs from the first 2 albums combined I really, genuinely like. That being said, Phantom of the Opera is one of my favorite Maiden songs.

I share in the general hate for No Prayer, as shown by my ranking. That being said, I think Fear of the Dark gets a bad rep. If they would've shaved the album down to be this:

01.Be Quick or Be Dead
02.Judas be My Guide
03.Afraid to Shoot Strangers
04.Childhood's End
05.Wasting Love
06.The Fugitive
07.Chains of Misery
08.Fear of the Dark

...I would love it. I think there's some really great and underrated material on the disc, it's just obstructed by 4 of the absolute biggest clunkers Maiden have ever written (From Here to Eternity, Fear is the Key, The Apparition, Weekend Warrior).

Fixed!

I checked out the old thread and I'll still stick with my previous list:

I'm into the whole brevity thing, so...

1. Powerslave
2. Iron Maiden
3. The Number of the Beast
4. Piece of Mind
5. Killers

I agree. Fear of the dark does get a bad rep when It shouldnt. I love that album. I love wearing my "Fear of the Dark" Shirt in public cause I always get some sort of reaction. For example yesterday I was at the pharmacy picking some stuff up and someone came up to me and commented on my shirt and we started talking about the album for a good 15 minutes while waiting in line.

Not only that but "Wasting Love" is like one of my all time favorite songs ever made....period....It definitely helped me out during hard times. More specifically when my ex girlfriend broke up with me back in summer of 2009

But that was pre Final Frontier and a new ranking from everybody is easier to read with a fresh thread.


My list:
15. Virtual X
14. No Prayer For The Dying
13. Dance Of Death
12. The X Factor
11. A Matter Of Life And Death
10. The Final Frontier
9. Killers
8. Fear Of The Dark
7. Powerslave
6. Seventh Sun Of A Seventh Son
5. Somewhere In Time
4. Iron Maiden
3. Number Of The Beast
2. Brave New World
1. Piece Of Mind

I'm satisfied with my list for now, but give me a couple days and I'll want to change it.



Go!
I agree with your number 1!!!
