None! Because Iron Maiden sucks at nothing!...except for just about all the Blaze Bailey songs, which really isn't true Maiden, it is kind of a pseudo Maiden.

I know this is eternal topic amongst fans and I understand that some fans just can't stand Blaze, but I'd say that especially many songs from The X-Factor are much more "real Maiden" (closer to the quality and style of albums like Seventh Son and so) than a lot stuff from the early 90's albums, as good as they can also be. I just think that The X-Factor has a lot great songwriting efforts in it. :)

Then again, I do understand that it doesn't feel quite right to everyone.

*songs I might actually skip

Albums I had difficulty with;
Fear of the Dark - so many options.
X Factor - Not a bad song on it.
Book of Souls - Probably not a Top 5 album for me but tough choice. Consistent album.

I love lists.

I went by the ones I tend to skip most often...

IM: Strange World (too slooooow, but still a great Maiden song)
Killers: Another Life (lyrics a bit bleak)
TNOTB: Hallowed be thy Name (just because I have heard it played so much, but this entire album totally put Maiden on the map forever!).
POM: Quest for Fire (I guess?)
Powerslave: Losfer Words (I guess?)
SIT: Déjà vu (just too short)
SSOASS: Can I play with Maggots? (just because it’s pop-ish #overplayedlive)
NPFTD: Hooks in You & Bring your Daughter to the Slaughter (kind of stupid lyrics)
FOTD: Chains of Misery (kind of stupid lyrics)
TXF: (all songs except: Sign Of The Cross, Lord Of The Flies, Man On The Edge - because of Bruce on vocals in live versions).
VXI: (all songs except: The Clansman - just because of Bruce on vocals Rock in Rio).
BNW: The Thin Line Between Love and Hate (I guess?)
DOD: Dance of Death (I guess?)
AMOLAD: The Reincarnation Of Benjamin Breeg or Lord of Light (can’t choose!)
TFF: Satellite 15 (because it is a different song than the Final Frontier)
TBOS: Empire of the Clouds (starts great, but loses me somewhere in the middle, brings me back at the end)
