    Yeah, what Perun said. I've been fairly harsh on Killers because it is my least favorite album and I have one 1 to give before the end of the album (hello, Drifter) but I'm trying my best to give a 1 for the worst Maiden song, not for the worst song ever, otherwise most of Maiden's song's would be at 7+.

    Re: Daily Song: Twilight Zone

    Of course I do compare with other songs as well, but since I find hardly any really terrible weak Maiden songs (in the shape of a 3 or lower) in the catalogue, that's exactly the reason why I am not going to give such numbers.

    I don't find this so necessary.
    A teacher doesn't have to give his worst student a 1 either, only because he's the worst student.

    Even the worst Maiden song I would give only a 2. But most Maiden songs deserve far more. The point of this exercise is to gauge how subjectively people rank this stuff.

    I do. The Apparition and Hooks in You spring to mind.

    Great and beautiful harmonies, which bear a lot of sadness and melancholy making a counterpoint to the desparate and kinda excited carachter trying to get his message through to his grilfriend on this plane of existence. 8.

    The Assassin is alright, Chains of Misery is actually pretty good, and New Frontier is... weak.

    My Killers vinyl purchased in Canada in about 1982 has this song. What versions don't?

    The original UK release, IIRC.

    I don't think any Maiden song is shit, but some are far better than others.
    I've tried to use the following scale:
    10: rare, all-time classic, even by Maiden standards — I don't expect to give out more than a dozen or so.
    9: a great, great song, a 10 by almost any other band
    8: an excellent song
    7: a good song — I expect a majority of Maiden tracks fall in the 7 to 9 range
    6: a decent song — like it, don't love it.
    5: meh
    4: don't like it

    Very few Maiden songs are five or four, and I doubt I'll give any threes or lower because I can't think of any Maiden song I would get up to turn off.

    Meh from me as well, but I give the songs the fall in the "meh" category 5. So a 5 it is.

    8/10  I've been giving Killers a huge listen so I'm surprised to give this such a high rating.  But maybe I'm just getting used to it. 
     
  13. ______no5

    ______no5 The Angel Of The Odd

    Now, that one shouldn't be in the album at all. 5/10

    8 out of 10... The only thing compelling me to rate it this high is Paul's vocal performance. I think the chorus saves what is otherwise a rather mediocre effort.

    It's ok. 6. Sorta catchy, but not much to it.

    I love the main riff in this song. I find it quite underrated and I think it would've been great on the early days tour. 9/10

    Underrated song! It's short, but quality>quantity, right? The riff is catchy, and the chorus is great. 8/10

    Really boring song. Main riff is kinda good, but still meh... 3/10.

    5/10, It's ok, middle of the road track.
