    Dr. Eddies Wingman Brighter than thousand_suns

    Both 1988 and 2006 are class. However, I have to go with 1986. Not only are the three album songs H wrote on SiT great, he wrote them all by himself. That's unique for that album. In fact, these three songs are the only ones on all Maiden studio albums where H is given credit alone. On all other songs where he's credited, it's along with either 'Arry, Bruce or both (except Gangland, where Clive Burr is co-credited).

    So, 1986 it is.

    Plus there is New Frontier (McBrain, Smith, Dickinson).

    Aha, forgot that one. Bah, DoD would've been better off without that song anyway.

    I voted for the AMOLAD collection, Longest Day and Brighter Than A Thousand Suns are simply staggering.

    Not including the b-sides, there is hardly a bad song H has written.
     
  6. Great poll Foro!

    God this is hard because there is something great about H's contribution on all of those albums.....er well maybe Hooks in You not so great.

    It's a toss up between 1983 for Flight of Icarus and Die With your Boots On being stand out tracks

    or

    1986 Wasted Years, Sea of Madness and Stranger (drooooooooool) and all penned by Smithy exclusively


    er

    Maybe 2003 , i love Wildest Dreams and Paschenfuckingdale needs no explanation, I also love the solo's on New Frontier and Face in the Sand (probably his best since SIASL)

    but what about

    2006 all the stuff on AMOLAD is amazing

    shit, bollocks this is getting my tourettes going!!!

    1986 there I've made up my mind and hitting post before i change it

    Updated! People who voted before can change their vote.
    2006 also contains Lord of Light. For some reason it fell out / didn't fit.

    Why didn't you include Reach Out for 1986? C'mon Adrian on LEAD vocals!

    Edit: forgot he didn't actually write it, even though it was an Urchin song.

  9. The Flash

    The Flash Dennis Wilcock did 9/11

    AMOLAD group, comfortably. 2nd place probably goes to TFF, all of my highlights from that album are co-written by Adrian.
     
  10. RTC

    RTC Libera et impera!

    AMOLAD isn't their best album, but those 4 songs are probably my favourites from that album.

    5. Lord of Light belongs there as well (can't repair it).
