    This indeed is about rating songs.

    We'll do an overview of 10s as well, in the stats, so expect this later on.

    The Talisman
    Dance of Death
    Rime of the ancient mariner

  11. Wyrdskein

    Wyrdskein Invader

    No. I do like it and it was the first album I ever heard from Maiden at 9 years old, so it holds a special place in my heart; but these days I would not give a 10.
     
  12. Night Prowler

    Night Prowler ɹǝlʍoɹԀ ʇɥƃᴉN Staff Member

    Yeah, I understand, but it's strange that not one song from The Number Of The Beast or Piece Of Mind deserve a 10, but songs like Chains Of Misery, Don't Look To The Eyes Of A Stranger, Hooks In You etc. do.
     
  13. Unknown One

    Unknown One I see the ghost of navigators.

    My 10s list looks tiny compared to everyone else's. Then again, I only give 10 to the really special ones, also there's about 30 each for 9 and 8.

    Phantom of the Opera
    Hallowed Be Thy Name (but dropping quite fast)
    Still Life (just recently overtook Revelations which is dropping even faster than Hallowed)
    To Tame a Land
    Powerslave
    Rime of the Ancient Mariner
    Caught Somewhere in Time
    Stranger in a Strange Land
    Infinite Dreams
    Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
    Afraid to Shoot Strangers
    Sign of the Cross
    The Clansman
    Blood Brothers (a couple songs from the album are trying to crack into the 10s though)
    Dance of Death
    Paschendale

    Interesting to note that a bunch of albums don't have any 10 songs from them (but all of them at least have a 9) and no Maiden album has more than 2 10s on it, even though there are a bunch of non Maiden albums that have 3 10s songs on them, yet Maiden is my favourite band, so go figure.

    i dont know how i just ended up posting a post of my post quoted but i assume it had something to do with my leaving the computer unattended... so to not make this a pointless waste of board space...      im of a similar mindset unknown. but we seem to differ in the direction by year that our 10's lean.
    i have loadsa albums not breaking 9's
