4 of the 80's albums are better than any of the reunion albums, that doesn't mean I hate them. I nominated 3 of them for the "greatest metal album" game and would also have nominated DOD and TFF but I thought 10 Maiden albums was enough
For quite a while I thought the reunion era was the best period of Maiden and as every album came out I thought it was their best. Now I have reverted to the Golden Age. Who knows what the years will bring and how the dust will settle.
