I'm not too familiar with any Maiden album after Brave New World (though I used to own Dance of Death), and don't know the Blaze albums either aside from the ones with videos.  Keeping that in mind, here is my current ranking of Maiden with my favorite at the top.

1. Killers
2. Powerslave
3. Piece of Mind
4. The Number of the Beast
5. Iron Maiden
6. Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
7. Somewhere In Time
8. Fear Of The Dark
9. No Prayer For The Dying

Not actually sure where I'd put Brave New World as I'm mainly familiar with the live versions from Rock In Rio.

Well, let's see. I've reviewed and rated them all at some point, and looking at the ratings they all seem quite fair. But the order...

1. Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
2. Somewhere in Time
3. Brave New World
4. The Number of the Beast
5. Powerslave
6. Piece of Mind
Here it gets more difficult...
7. A Matter of Life and Death
8. The Final Frontier
9. Iron Maiden
10. Dance of Death
11. The X Factor
12. Virtual XI
13. Fear of the Dark
14. Killers
15. No Prayer for the Dying

I think they're all pretty good albums.

Wow, I must confess I have a hard time seeing an album in the top 7 positions that wasn't released by 1988. Seriously. 

Anyway, my list looks something like this:

1. Powerslave
2. Somewhere in Time
3. The Number of the Beast
4. Piece of Mind
5. Seventh Son
6. Iron Maiden
7. Killers
--------------- The GREAT and NECESSARY. I find that there is no correct order for these masterpieces of heavy metal. Each order is correct.


8. Fear of the Dark (a 3 song album)
9. No Prayer for the Dying
10. Dance of Death
11. Brave New World
12. A Matter of Life and Death
-------------------- Some great songs or some good songs. Don't listen to the album entirely, just some songs. 


13. The Final Frontier
14. The X- Factor
15. Virtual XI
------------------- Seriously Maiden?

I´ve been a fan since "Seventh Son...was their new release (I was very young and my older brother was playing the album constantly), but I´ve actually never seen them live. I hope the stars align the next time they visit Denmark.

Maiden are my favourite metal band, but even after so much listening, putting their albums into a rank order is difficult. Let's have a go (first three or so subject to change at a moment's notice!):

1. Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
2. Powerslave
3. Somewhere in Time
4. Piece of Mind
5. The Number of the Beast
6. A Matter of Life and Death
7. Brave New World
8. Iron Maiden
9. Killers
10. The Final Frontier
11. Dance of Death
12. The X Factor (quite underrated in my opinion!)
13. Fear of the Dark
14. No Prayer for the Dying
15. Virtual XI
