4 stars Iron Maiden's first album ain't one of their best, but contains a lot of anthems. Phantom Of The Opera, Remember Tomorrow, Transylvania, Strange World, Prowler are absolutely wonderful, but I think Iron Maiden (the track), Running Free and Sanctuary (not on original lp) are overrated, though good. The sound is really cheap, the bass is too roughly mixed, louder than the guitars and vocals. Paul Di'Anno's voice isn't that ood, but I think he's the best Maiden singer for these songs - he would be horrible for singing Aces High or Fear Of The Dark, but I think he sang the songs of the first two albums much better than Bruce Dickinson or Blaze Bayley ever did. Dennis Stratton's only Maiden collaboration as guitarist, he's good, but not great guitar player, I guess. This is a good album.
