I actually like those last two, and I do think it's a great album, but it's not the best thing Maiden ever did.

I happen to love all of those songs.

The last two I'll let pass, but anyone who actually likes "Quest For Fire" invalidates their opinion on EVERYTHING


I think the same about Powerslave, actually. Half that album is awful as well. I will always put No Prayer For The Dying on before either of those albums.

Besides, we all know Somewhere In Time is their best album

You were saying something about "invalidating opinions..."

Speaking of invalidating one's opinion.....

It's because the No Prayer tracks aren't horrifically overplayed. I'm so bored of tracks from Piece and Powerslave that appear on every live album, every best of CD, every DVD...

Not to mention Back In The Village, Flash of The Blade and Duelists are all rubbish. Not as bad as Quest For Fire, which is the worst IM song ever, but crap all the same.

Tell you what though, at least I have an opinion that's mine, as opposed to someone elses. Fanboys

Meh, worst Maiden album is Fear of the Dark hands down. Sure its got a couple good tracks and the title song is worth the album alone, but the middle has that "filler material" feeling to it.


be quick or be dead - solid fast song
from here to eternity - its ok
afraid to shoot strangers - good song, but the first half is useless
fear is the key - now the crap starts
childhoods end - "what the hell is going on?"
wasting love - i think ive only listened to this all the way through one time
the fugitive - more like "the prisoner" reloaded
chains of misery - weak
the apparition - weaker
judas be my guide - finally a good song!
weekend warrior - eh not bad, just doesnt really fit in
fear of the dark - epic
