    Arguably the most consistently excellent album I've rated/reviewed so far. Just doesn't quite have the peaks of SiT.

    An album so good I listened to it twice today. While a few songs brought it down, they all work together as one piece of art.

    Average ranking from this: 8.13/10
    How I'd rank it compared to their entire discography: 9/10

    Just went through this myself on the individual track threads.

    Moonchild - 9/10 >
    Infinite Dreams - 10/10 >
    Can I Play With Madness - 10/10 >
    The Evil That Men Do - 10/10 >
    Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son - 9/10 >
    The Prophecy - 7/10 >
    The Clairvoyant - 10/10 >
    Only The Good Die Young - 9/10 >

    Average: 9.3/10

    An absolute monster of an album that brought together all the best elements of Maiden's classic period and packaged them with a compelling overarching story.

    This is far and away the best album of Iron Maiden's career, and it's the standard by which all their other music should ultimately be judged, for better or for worse.
