The Apparition came on shuffle whilst I was shopping today. Not entirely sure how to say this but I almost kind of enjoyed it.
Neither Piece of Mind or Number of the Beast have stinker/filler songs. (Invaders, Gangland Quest for Fire and Sun and Steel are all great)
Fear of the Dark has several great songs: Afraid to Shoot Strangers, Childhood’s End, Wasting Love, The Fugitive, Judas My Guide, Fear of the Dark.
Killers is only half as good as the debut.
Their Cross-Eyed Mary cover is good, but it gets overrated by fans.
They release too many live albums. It becomes overkill.
Powerslave is far from their best album. I’d put it at around their 6th or 7th best album.
It’s not that I just dislike the Blaze Bayley X albums…it’s that I think they are downright unlistable.
Beast Over Hammersmith is a bit better than Live After Death
Book of Souls needed to include two shorter songs that were around the four minute mark…just to slightly break up the monotony of the long epic songs.
A Matter of Life and Death is a great, great album.
I can actually understand why non-Maiden fans are put off by Bruce’s style of singing.
