Oh, come on … I think these lists are GREAT :bigsmile: :applause:

1.) Somewhere in Time - here are no "less favourite" tracks, so I simply put them in order and these are the last three: 1. Heaven Can Wait, 2. Wasted Years, 3. Probably CSIT, but Deja-Vu and Alexander could also hold this spot

2.) Powerslave - 1. Back in the Village (although I love even that one), 2. 2 Minutes to Midnight, 3. Losfer Words

3.) Brave New World - 1. The Mercenary, 2. The Fallen Angel, 3. Brave New World

4.) The X Factor - 1. Blood on the World's Hands, 2. Look for the Truth, 3. The Edge of Darkness

5.) A Matter of Life and Death - 1. Out of the Shadows, 2. The Pilgrim, 3. I don't know, I absolutely don't know, if I have to pick one, let it be… Different World

…and again, if I only were allowed the 6th favourite album (which I'm again not, so I once more beg everyone offended to cover their eyes :-D )…

6.) The Final Frontier - 1. The Alchemist, 2. El Dorado, 3. Satellite 15…The Final Frontier


Is anyone brave enough to accept the challenge to write again all four 5 (least) favourite albums, 3 (least) favourite songs from each ... WITH EXPLANATION for each??? I think I'm not. :bigsmile:

Game time started.
Lists are fun :p I feel the urge to contribute yet again!

Powerslave - The Duellists, Losfer Words, Flash of the Blade
SSOASS - Can I Play With Madness, The Evil That Men Do, The Prophecy
AMOLAD - Lord of Light, Out of the Shadows, These Colours Don't Run
The X Factor - 2 A.M., The Unbeliever, Blood on the World's Hands

As these albums (obviously) represents what I consider the very best of Maiden, none of the songs listed are bad in any way, I just enjoy them less than the rest of the songs.

Ancient Mariner
Somewhere In Time: Deja Vu, Alexander The Great*
Powerslave: Flash Of The Blade, The Duellists, Losfer Words
Seventh Son: Only The Good Die Young,*
Piece Of Mind: Quest For Fire, Sun And Steel, Die With Your Boots On
A Matter Of Life And Death: The Pilgrim, Out Of the Shadows, Different World

* Impossible to rank a 3rd least excellent track... even the ones I mentioned are near perfect (perhaps SIASL and SSOASS I don't know)

Now Imagine this album:

Only The Good Die Young
Die With Your Boots On
Flash Of The Blade
Out Of The Shadows
The Duellists
Losfer Words
Deja Vu
Alexander The Great

Speaks TONS of the powerhouse that Maiden is
