Unpopular Maiden Opinions

Trooper
The Duellists is currently one of my all time favourite Maiden tracks. The guitar and bass work is top notch! On top of great vocals and a nice groove.

I actually quite enjoy all of Chains Of Misery, From Here To Eternity and Weekend Warrior. It's The Apparition, Fear Is The Key, and Childhoods End which destroy the album for me.

Childhood end is too good to be mentioned with those other "songs"
It is better than Fear is the Key and anything is better than The Apparition but it is still comfortably worse than the next lowest song.

Which I consider to be The Fugitive, by the way. Weekend Warrior is great.

My order

Fear of the dark
Judas be my guide
Wasting love
Affraid to shoot strangers
Be quick or be dead
Childhoods end
The fugitive
Chains of misery
From here to eternity
Weekend warrior
Fear is the key
The apparition

If you were to make an album out of the top 8 songs it would be in the same ranks as SIT and SSoASS

Personally the only song I would give a 10 rating to from FOTD is Be Quick or Be Dead.
FOTD itself is a 9 and the rest of the album is very patchy with FHTE being the best of the rest.

Though the top 2 tracks are definitely a cut above the others.
