This is my favourite IRON MAIDEN record although a lot of that i'm sure has to do with it being the first MAIDEN album i bought. Man this has to be one of my top five when it comes to the most played albums of my life. I can't explain it but i felt almost addicted to one and played it as loud as i could back in the day. While the previous record is usually rated higher than this one i feel this is a step up and the first recording of theirs to have that classic MAIDEN sound all the way through. The Punk vibe that was still there but fading away on "Number Of The Beast" is gone here and we also get that classic lineup as Niko is behind the kit for them for the first time. I should also mention i saw them on this tour back in 1983 in Toronto and i've never been so wired for a concert in my life, and believe me i was wired for almost all concerts back then. Listening to this cd today reveals a band who was trying to mix it up a bit as we get a lot of variety. Still it's those classic numbers that still impress me to this day. In fact you can include the first five songs in that statement. Great album cover as well. This album would be the start of four straight masterpieces. Hey if you were a MAIDEN fan back in the eighties then you can't say that decade was that bad can you ?
