If you compare Maiden's output with some of their peers, the threads like this show why Maiden are better. Some bands in the same age group as Maiden have been releasing solid to good albums for the last while, but I don't think any of them could produce a selection of recent/post-heyday songs as strong as some of the selection we are seeing in this thread. Basically, a lot of the songs that we see reappear in list after list in this thread can be considered genuine Maiden classics

Yep. Another thing I love about Maiden is that all their songs have a real meaning behind them. I like standard metal songs that are all in good fun (I'm an Amputated fan, after all), but I truly love Maiden because more or less, they've always been the thinking man's metal musicians. History, war, philosophy - there's something real behind it.

Out of the Silent Planet
If I have to do a album from all the reunion songs it would be something like this:

Disc 1:
1.
The Wicker Man
2.Ghost Of The Navigator
3.Brave New World
4.Blood Brothers
5.Out Of The Silent Planet
6.Rainmaker

Disc 2:
7.
Dance Of Death
8.For The Greater Good Of God
9.The Talisman
10.Death Or Glory
11.The Book Of Souls

It is impossible, but that is like a Best Of off the reunion era... :) Total length: 75,92 minutes !

Thought I may as well also post an ultimate classics era album cover and back cover. Hallowed Be Thy Name may seem a bit mainstream and filled with plenty of overplayed songs but each was seminal in my Maiden listening history. Although when comparing the two albums I prefer Empire of the Clouds.

EDIT: replaced Infinite Dreams with Stranger in a Strange Land and changed up the order.
