    I've really given my ratings system an overhaul on this last discography listen and I've found myself giving songs 10/10 for their context and place within an overall album and their live significance, rather than just barreling down hard on every aspect of the recording. Essentially, a lot more things have that high of a rating than they used to. Here's my list so far (only through FOTD right now):

    Phantom of the Opera
    Sanctuary
    Wrathchild
    Murders in the Rue Morgue
    Children of the Damned
    22 Acacia Avenue
    The Number of the Beast
    Run to the Hills
    Hallowed Be Thy Name
    Where Eagles Dare
    Flight of Icarus
    Revelations
    The Trooper
    To Tame a Land
    Aces High
    2 Minutes to Midnight
    Powerslave
    Rime of the Ancient Mariner
    Wasted Years
    Stranger in a Strange Land
    Alexander the Great
    the entire Seventh Son album
    Afraid to Shoot Strangers
    Wasting Love
    The Fugitive
    Fear of the Dark

    I remember a discussion about Murders in The Rue Morgue a while back but I can't remember the thread now..

    Anyways they also played it on the Virtual 11 tour apparently, at a few select shows:

    I have really come to love The Fugitive. Maybe it was all the jokes around here, but it's a great song.

    Mosh The years just pass like trains Staff Member

    Even before that infamous debate, something about The Fugitive just never sat right with me. It's where the album really takes a nosedive, along with Childhoods End. I actually like Fear is the Key.

    I could check the commentary thread, but I'm guessing things have changed.
    Off the top of my head I gave out about 20.
    I'd be surprised if these songs aren't still there:
    Phantom
    Hallowed
    Revelations
    Rime
    Sign of the Cross
    Clansman
    Brave New World
    Paschendale
    It will be interesting to see what other ones make the cut
