Having recently gone through Iron Maiden's studio albums again (with some still in rotation), I've come up with the following ranking for the sixteen releases. It probably won't be to everyone's liking: a lot of newer albums placed above certain classics although the bottom end shouldn't upset anyone too much (unless we have some major Blaze era fans in the house). 

  1. Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
  2. Powerslave
  3. Brave New World
  4. The Number of the Beast
  5. Iron Maiden
  6. The Book of Souls
  7. A Matter of Life and Death
  8. Dance of Death
  9. Killers
  10. Somewhere in Time
  11. The Final Frontier
  12. Piece of Mind
  13. Fear of the Dark
  14. No Prayer for the Dying
  15. Virtual XI
  16. The X Factor
So how would that compare to your ranking?

Additionally what are your favourite Iron Maiden tracks? This is extra hard for me so I'm not going a ranked order for these, but for me these are, at least currently, major standouts from a very solid discography.

  • 2 Minutes to Midnight
  • Aces High
  • Afraid to Shoot Strangers
  • Blood Brothers
  • Brave New World
  • Caught Somewhere in Time
  • Dance of Death
  • Empire of the Clouds
  • The Evil That Men Do
  • Fear of the Dark
  • Flash of the Blade
  • Ghost of the Navigator
  • Hallowed by Thy Name
  • Iron Maiden
  • Journeyman
  • Killers
  • Moonchild
  • Murders in the Rue Morgue
  • The Nomad
  • Paschendale
  • Powerslave
  • The Red and the Black
  • Rime of the Ancient Mariner
  • Run to the Hills
  • Sanctuary
  • Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
  • These Colours Don't Run
  • To Tame a Land
  • The Trooper
  • Wrathchild
I imagine some of those would be seen as typical picks (though hopefully not all of them). Maybe some of you who have been following the band since the 80s are sick of certain tracks. It would be interesting to hear different perspectives.
