With Brave New World marking Iron Maiden's comeback to the world of greatness the band next produced what I feel had become one of the more overlooked albums in their discography, Dance of Death. Even out of the albums from Brave New World onwards it seems to be that this one doesn't get so much as a look in as either it's predessor or successor A Matter of Life and Death. This is something I consider very confusing. I do prefer Brave New World by a small margin, but in Dance of Death Iron Maiden produced an almost as good follow-up.

I consider this one of the more varied Iron Maiden releases. Even within their current progressively minded methods they have stuck with their own distinctive sound and that's still true here. But on Dance of Death they do everything they're good at and more. Short catchy songs like single Rainmaker, longer epic's including the theatrical title track and they even close the album with an unplugged track, Journeyman, which I consider one of the most surprising and successful experiments the band has ever done. All in all, Dance of Death has the makings of the definitive Iron Maiden album and the only reason it fails to crack my top three from the band is that I think the song No More Lies could have used a little trimming down.
