almost everyone loves iron maiden,so in your opinion whats your favorite maiden album

Tina Taem 22's picture

seventh son 🤘🏻

Somewhere in Time.

I know the album is often hated but actually do love everything about it; It's not even the first Iron Maiden album I've heard either.

i actually think its a great album

This is such an incredibly hard question, but with a gun against my head .... Killers 🤘😄🤘 It might not have the 'stone cold' classics on it, but the consistency and the punchy shorter songs, make it such a great album to listen to ... Not to mention the album cover 🤘😄🤘

The OBVIOUS answer would be Number of the Beast...but I prefer Piece Of Mind actually when I heard the Trooper for the first time with those classic riffs I was hooked on this album... so if you're gonna die, die with your boots on...listening to Piece of Mind of course.

Rest of their discography vary betreden okay to nothing special imho.

Heavy Metal Chemist's picture

Wow! Virtual XI is a very unusual pick. What makes it so special for you?

Faber's picture

For me this is a record where all the pieces fall together. Renewed energy, notch to the 70ies and early NWoBHM, with their own sound. Tight, great melodies, and I'm very fond of the vocal performance of Blaze. For once every song is memorable and rememberable (sadly that also goes for Como Estais Amigos...). Don't Look to the Eyes of a Stranger and The Angel and the Gambler are their best songs.

It change every day, depend of the mood, can't beat the 80's albums for sure, right now I'm into No Prayer, nobody likes it,
I don't know why, personally I like it a lot, lot of great songs there, better than the last albums, just my opinion.

Dr. Wilbur Graves's picture

I do like No Prayer a lot. but it's a mixed bag of goofys song and very dark songs. Not as solid as the 80s albums.

Valente Imortal's picture

For me the self titled and Killers. I always prefered Paul's voice and singing style (More of a raspy voice and less opera) and back then the band had this mystic aura that got lost over time with all that theatrical parade imo. Although I enjoy the next albums as well for me Maiden before and after 82 are like two separate bands.

IronSabbath89's picture

For me it changes daily between the first and Somewhere in Time. In general I think Iron Maiden never did a bad song until Mother Russia and that was the beginning of the end. From there the Band lost me, apart from some occasional highlight songs.

MrCrispy13's picture

Phase 1: Killers; Phase 2: Powerslave...what a fun tour that was with the egypt theme and mariner setup on stage.

Darklord's picture

7th Son ..is what does it for me.

ProfondoRosso's picture

The debut. People whine about the production but the street level punk sound is what makes it stand out to me.

kissman's picture

KILLERS.... By Far!!!!

Cardboardcity's picture

Somewhere in Time for me, narrowly followed by Seventh Son, and then Iron Maiden. Everything else is still wonderful, but for me, this is the cream of the crop with SiT having the magical quality that they couldn't quite muster up before or after.

flori's picture

current fave is piece of mind, but my favorite maiden album can change every other week HAHA

CEROXER's picture

X factor

Heavy Metal Marc's picture

Killers for Di'anno era
Number of the Beast since it was my first
Peace of Mind in general

Lloyd H's picture

The debut for me too. It's raw as hell, is varied but also concise and obviously a lot less theatrical/grandiose than their later albums.
KIllers and Number Of The Beast aren't too shabby either though!

no karate in pit's picture

now id say powerslave or caught somewhere in time or fear of the dark or piece of mind or number of the beast or the OG gaaah this is hard

HandleWithCare's picture

Killers, reminds me of my childhood & old friends!

MetalNDN's picture

The Number of the Beast.

ThatBillyGuy's picture

It's a tie between Number of the Beast and Powerslave. I'm always back and forth on this one but right now i think its Number of the beast but its a hard pick for me.
