Paschendale will go down in history as the last truly great Maiden epic before they got too formulaic in the writing process.

Well, if Brad hadn't so foolishly slipped in Hallowed at the last minute...actually now that I think about it, these results would be drastically different because of how I gave out points (10 for 1st place, 9 for 2nd, etc.)

Not at all. Hallowed is the most overrated Maiden song ever and I've got time for Mariner either... most of the lyrics are lifted directly from the poem. It's incredibly lazy songwriting.

Out of those ten songs I think I've have three, at most, in my top ten Maiden epics.

I still think To Tame A Land is one of their best songs...
