This is one of the greatest if not the greatest Heavy Metal release of all time IMO.

 

 

Bruce's 1st release with the band and they were able to take everything to whole other level.

 

I've include the song 'Total Eclipse', even though it wasn't on the orignial release, it was the b-side to "Run to the Hills" and has been icluded on the cd since it's re-released the last few times.

 

 

As for my favorite I have to with "Children of the Damned", not only is it my fav from this album but it might be my fav Maiden song of all time.

 

"22 Acacia Avenue" is a very close second, and "Hallowed be Thy Name" is a classic as well.

 

I'm sure "Run to the Hills" will get the most votes but I'm just sick of that song and the title track.

I know what you mean, but just pick one.

 

 

Funny story, when I lived in Colorado I used to listen to this cd on the way to work all the time. When I would get to 22 Acacia Avenue I would always be at the same stop light and on my left everytime was this Dental office called "Acacia" Dental. I always thought that was a little strange. Around this same time the Apartment I was living in was located a block from an intersection of Dickinson and Birch avenues. So I had a bussiness with a word from a Maiden song title, and a street with Maiden's singer and Maiden's producers names.

Steve Harris' killer bass riff was what made "Number Of The Beast" one of the all time best songs. If I had to introduce somebody to Iron Maiden, this would be the song I would use.

'Number Of The Beast' for me, although most of the album is pretty huge. My fave Maiden album and one of the best Brit metal albums ever (along with Saxon's Wheels Of Steel)!!!

Hallowed Be Thy Name :banger:

 

Same here. And actually Prisoner is one of my favorites on this CD as well.

 

Yes, f'n classic tune, that was my fav back in the day easy, but as I "matured" (and I use that term loosely) I started to appreciate the dynamics of Hallowed... There was this band back when I was in highschool, man they did a kickass versio of that tune and a bunch of other Maiden. Good shit, brings back the memories...

24 years after first hearing this album, I still love it. "22 Acacia Avenue" is my fave on the CD.

I hear ya. Great album. Great Band. 22 Acacia Avenue is a Great Tune. Probably my fave by the band except for Can I play with Madness.

I'm gonna go against the tide here and vote for "The Prisoner." I always loved that "I AM NOT A NUMBER, I AM A FREE MAN" intro.
