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

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.
