    Complaints about Maiden

    I wish they still put out new music rather than just going on tour playing old favorites. It's almost if they've turned into a cabaret act.

    GREATEST METAL ALBUM CUP - League 14: Cambridgeshire County Metal League Division One B - Matches 29-32 (Updated Aug 11)

    I think about that a lot, especially when Practice What You Preach is better than at least 7 albums every round. Faith No More deserved the win, but Preach deserved better. Greenhouse Effect, Sins of Omission, Perilous Nation, the freaking title track...

    IRON MAIDEN ALBUM REFERENDUM 2020: Round 15; Final Battle: Powerslave vs. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

    Is there a different version of A Matter of Life and Death that you all are listening to? Because the version I have is not that good.

    GREATEST METAL ALBUM CUP - League 14: Cambridgeshire County Metal League Division One B - Matches 29-32 (Updated Aug 11)

    A Room With a View is not very representative of Death Angel at all. This (their third) album was a departure from their much more thrasher sound on previous and later albums, but they did have a couple more ballad-y types on this album. They were going for a commercial success here. If you do...

    IRON MAIDEN ALBUM REFERENDUM 2020: Round 15; Final Battle: Powerslave vs. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

    https://forum.maidenfans.com/threads/the-ultimate-tlotb-setlist-thread-contest.70871/ A link to the whole thread. Scoring rules on page 1, my list was on page 6. For some reason I thought they were going to play Murders in the Rue Morgue and Stranger in a Strange Land.

    IRON MAIDEN ALBUM REFERENDUM 2020: Round 15; Final Battle: Powerslave vs. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

    All right, we're agreed. it's easy to take things said on the internet out of context or in the wrong way, and too often people don't take the time to hash it out. We have lots in common. Now let's hold hands and listen to Reign in Blood together, brother!

    IRON MAIDEN ALBUM REFERENDUM 2020: Round 15; Final Battle: Powerslave vs. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

    I wasn't trying to start a fight. I just thought that taking a step back from the myopia of Maidenfans, it would seem crazy that The Number of the Beast was ranked so low. That's it. It's an album anyone who knows anything about metal knows. I personally rank it closer to 5, depending on the...

    IRON MAIDEN ALBUM REFERENDUM 2020: Round 15; Final Battle: Powerslave vs. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

    Who's criticizing? This is my direct quote: You're a member of Maidenfans, wear it as a badge of honor. Maidenfans have different views what may be typical in the outside (non-Maidenfans) world. That's all I said. It would be like a Megadeth forum saying "I Ain't Superstitious" is crap and...

    IRON MAIDEN ALBUM REFERENDUM 2020: Round 15; Final Battle: Powerslave vs. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

    What I mean is that literally everyone who knows anything about metal knows "6-6-6 the number of the beast"

    IRON MAIDEN ALBUM REFERENDUM 2020: Round 15; Final Battle: Powerslave vs. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

    Only on Maidenfans can an album with the band's best song (Hallowed), most well known song (Run to the Hills), all-time iconic song of the entire genre (title track), and song that apparently many people used to "procreate" to (Children of the Damned -- at least in Bruce's warped imagination) be...

    I'll go with the one that sounds like Elvis, Diesel's choice, the actual metal album, and the guy from The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

    IRON MAIDEN ALBUM REFERENDUM 2020: Round 15; Final Battle: Powerslave vs. Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

    If you instead voted for Somewhere in Time, your statement would still be true. Piece of Mind has better top tier (Trooper, Revelations, Still Life) and deeper mid-range (Icarus, Eagles, Dune). I get that Quest for Fire and Sun and Steel may not be anyone's favorite but we're talking about 7...
