And here I was sure you were joking or being sarcastic. :innocent:

NO! Thanks from me too - no sarcasm. I was carefully searching thu the posts to see if anyone else was going to "explain" it. I even clicked on Foro's link where it says "explained here".

So, here is my vote / rating for 'Iron Maiden':

'Prowler' 10
'REMEMBER TOMORROW' 11
'Running Free' 8
'Phantom Of The Opera' 10 (the song that introduced me to Iron Maiden)
'Transylvania' 10
'STRANGE WORLD' 11
'Sanctuary' 8
'Charlotte The Harlot' 5
'Iron Maiden' 3.5


Conclusion:  8.5  = MASTERPIECE  :ok:

And so sorry about the "11's". These two songs are stand-outs among all of Iron Maiden songs and require a 1 point boost. (I usually give them a "13" when rating -- this on the official site)

Not sure if this overall rating surprises me or not as I have never really rated individual Maiden tracks before. I expect this to end up quite far down the pecking order.

Average: 5.8/10

Raw and fairly simplistic overall, but with important hints at the greatness to come. The quality of Paul's vocals seems to vary from song to song, but he has a number of nice moments here.

This is not an album that I get the itch to listen to very often, but it does have a few highlights, and it's still better overall than either of the Blaze-era albums, IMO.
