2 stars A debut album who sent Iron Maiden on their way to their rightful stardom. This album also set the band apart from the rest of the scene.......... and ensured their survival. From that scene, only Saxon and Def Leppard made it. What made this album that special ? The mix of punk, prog rock and hard rock is the simple answer. On Phantom Of The Opera, the band is clearly into progressive rock. On other tracks again, they are into punk. But they never deviate from their formula. The problem is the bad production, the vocals and the songs. I am not a fan of any of the songs, with the exception of the above mentioned Phantom Of The Opera. This is just a debut album, a good one, but not an album many prog rock fans would like. Myself is included here. That's why I never bothers listen to it. A creditable debut, but nothing more.

2 stars.
