4 stars You torture me back at your lair!

My first Iron Maiden album owned, my first rock love ever. It wasn't a long time ago, but i still remember(see what i did there?) when i got this album as a christmas present from my friend who had introduced me to Maiden. I was back then staying the summer at our summer house in the Finnish archipelago, and i played this record in the living room, in the kitchen and in the shower! I haven't listened to it in a long time but i still remember the lyrics inside out to Phantom Of The Opera and Prowler, my two favourite Iron Maiden tracks of all time. Few days back i was out drinking with my friend and when back home we spinned Phantom Of The Opera and my god it absolutley rocked! I just love the part "Keep your distance walk away don't take his prey!" Prog RELATED music doesn't get much better than this(much).

There's plenty of tracks that offer the listener a great Iron Maiden rockout, besides my favourites that i already pointed out there also is "Running Free" and "Sanctuary" which both been live faves by the band later on. I also enjoy "Charlot the Harlot", the title track and "Transylvania" very much. "Remember Tomorrow" is not bad either. "Strange World" is maybe the only weaker track here.

To me Iron Maiden never rose to epic heights in their career, and this album might as well be their peak musically, even if they would go on to sell millions of albums later in their career. This is a great album. 4 Stars
