    Yeah we could do this one again. Could someone clean the results and add:

    - The Book of Souls
    - Shadow of the Valley

    Or is it better to open a new topic?

    Dance of Death: 27
    The Legacy: 20
    Dream of Mirrors: 9

    I don't know when I voted on this, but I'm far from certain that I would vote "The Legacy" again. "Talisman", "Dream of Mirrors" and "Lord of the Flies" would also be top contenders.

    1. Dance of Death
    2. The Talisman
    3. Dream of Mirrors

    Are my top 3. Janick also happens to be my favourite song writer of the post reunion era.

    The Pilgrim is incredibly underrated and is my favourite song from AMOLAD.

    The Book of Souls is a tad overrated, and Shadows of the Valley is my least favourite song from the post-reunion era.

    Talisman takes this easily. Book Of Souls and Shadows Of The Valley probably take 2nd and 3rd for me.

    Funny how they both wrote perhaps 2 of Maiden's very worst songs to start with, but have also written probably my 5th favourite song in the catalogue too.

    The Book of Souls is easily 'top 5 ever' material for me (possibly top 3 post-reunion). But it seems I can't put it over The Legacy. For years this one has been simply engraved in my brain as the ultimate masterpiece. It's funny that so many songs are longer than The Legacy but none is more massive or epic. It always feels longer than it is, but in a positive sense of course. Dance of Death is a classic very close to the two I mentioned, but e.g. The Talisman is nowhere near that level (although it's a brilliant track). Plus, I've always thought Lord of the Flies is underappreciated. Excellent rocker, should be played live more often.
    eddienephwrack and JudasMyGuide like this.

    Gone for D0D, although The Talisman is a personal favourite too. Book of Souls doesn't grab me as much.

    I went for DoD, however I would have probably voted for TBOS if it was there.

    In order of how I'd rank them:

    12 - The Unbeliever
    11 - Lord of the Flies
    10 - The Legacy
    9 - The Pilgrim
    8 - The Apparition
    7 - The Mercenary
    6 - Weekend Warrior
    5 - The Book Of Souls
    4 - Dream Of Mirrors
    3 - The Talisman
    2 - Dance Of Death
    1 - Shadows Of The Valley

    Dance of death, it's a brilliant and a classic song!

    For me it's The Talisman, but The Legacy comes a very close second. Also The Book of Souls has really grown on me. It's got a hell of a chorus.
  15. JudasMyGuide

    JudasMyGuide Domini canis

    Well, my top 3 songs are Dance of Death, The Legacy and The Talisman, so tell me... :D

    But for me it's probably Dance of Death. In a way I like The Legacy more, but it's also very specific (and more connected with its album).

    I updated this poll. I added The Book of Souls and Shadows* of the Valley. People can change their vote if they like.

    *I blundered by leaving out that "s" (I often forget it!), sorry, can't repair it.

    Voted for The Talisman because it's part of one of the most underrated albums.

    DOD and The Legacy are as good.
