    Hey guys!

    I made an average with all the polls made here to find out what the best favorite albums and songs according to board staff.

    I collected the data between 6 and 7 September of 2015.

    Here is the link to download the file: http://www.4shared.com/file/2IaFouYSce/MAIDENFANS_ALBUM_RATING.html

    What do you think of the result? Any surprises?

    Oh, man. We really need to post that link, and LC is on vacation. Who's got it?

    mirtilo, we already have those averages in a Google spreadsheet. Except for a few recent votes, the numbers will be pretty much the same. Thanks for all the work, though... ;)

    Surprises: That The Final Frontier is so high in the album rankings. I suppose an influx of positive votes back when the album came out....That Dance of Death is so high in the song ranking, I don't get that. It's not good enough to be in the same group as Infinite Dreams and Powerslave in my opinion.

    hahaha, that's ok! I should have known it. At least I had fun doing it!

    I agree with you about the influx of positive votes back when the album came out. But for me Dance of Death fits well next to songs like Infinite Dreams and Powerslave.

    The only negative surprises for me were the notes of The Apparition, Weekend Warrior and Chains of Misery.

    Wow! Now at least I know this link! Much more accurated. I just have done this because I had curiosity to know the overall preferences of Maiden fans.

    Thank you!

    Hate to see Killers so low..I'd probably put this in Maiden's upper half of albums.

    I don't know when @LooseCannon last updated that Google doc. Turns out there are some notable difference. Paschendale dropped out of the top ten, which just ain't right.

    I am interested in the differences as well. What were the methods? Wouldn't mind some more background in the LC doc as well.

    LC is relaunching the polls when he's back, I believe, and will update after the results play out.

    Im sure that's what it is. Same will happen with TBOS both in the song ratings and the survivor.

    "No More Lies" is above "22 Acacia Avenue". :uhm:

    How about the fact they're both above "Run To The Hills"?

    My averages come from 10 years of polling and don't reflect spikes up or down for songs.

    We shall see what happens once the polls are re-launched.

    The numbers for that should be fairly similar to the 2014 numbers. Anyway, we'll see.
