Prince of the Final Frontier
This is hard but I'll go chronologically

Phantom of the Opera
The Prisoner
Hallowed
Die With Your Boots On
Wasted Years
The Clairvoyant
Ghost of the Navigator
Paschendale
Brighter Than a Thousand Suns
Isle of Avalon

I won't include anything fromBOS because it hasn't had enough time to sink in but I really do believe that Empire would be on this list. Nothing else on disc two matches for me.

Ancient Mariner
1. Hallowed Be Thy Name
2. Phantom of the Opera
3. Rime of the Ancient Mariner
4. Infinite Dreams
5-11. listed chronologically, Children of the Damned, 22 Acacia Avenue, Revelations, Powerslave, Moonchild, Paschendale, Brighter Than a Thousand Suns (these could change from day to day. Outside the top four, it gets really difficult to choose.
 
In alphabetical order:

brave new world
brighter than a thousand suns
dance of death
hallowed be thy name
only the good die young
phantom of the opera
powerslave
purgatory
the loneliness of the long distance runner
where eagles dare
where the wild wind blows

This, of course, will change over time. But I tried to take the ones that have constantly been favorites and tracks that just seem to creep their way into every playlist no matter how I try to take other songs...and obviously it's harder to tell the newer the songs are since they haven't had the same time to form a long time opinion.
And I really wanted to add at least one Blaze-era song, but although I had a lot of candidates (Cross, unbeliever and futureal was top three) they just weren't perfect enough, mostly due to the production, I guess.
 
1 hallowed be thy name
2 rime of the ancient mariner
3 number of the beast
4 run to the hills
5 the trooper
6 fear of the dark
7 the clairvoyant
8 Phantom of the opera
9 running free
10 aces high

1. Hallowed Be Thy Name
2. Rime of the Ancient Mariner
3. Sign of the Cross
4. The Book of Souls
5. Caught Somewhere in Time
6. Alexander the Great
7. The Red and the Black
8. Empire of the Clouds
9. Dance of Death
10. Phantom of the Opera
 

TheTalisman

Ancient Mariner
1. The Thin Line Between Love and Hate. The tempo changes, the riffs, the vocal melodies, all of the solos and the outro section in this composition makes it the perfect ending to one of my favourite Maiden albums.
2. The Clairvoyant
3. Infinite Dreams
4. Hallowed Be Thy Name
5. Revelations
6. Judgement of Heaven
7. Sign of the Cross
8.Ghost of the Navigator

Honourable mention to.....

I may look at this list tomorrow, when sober (briefly sober) and disagree with all of it. Except No. 1.
