4 stars ron Maiden's second album, and Paul Di Anno's last album with the band, is in a way better than their rough debut. The sound is more mature, the vocals are better, and many songs are really awesome! However, many times it isn't very brilliant, actually at times it can annoy.

The style is even more eclectic than the debut, even though it has only one ballad (Prodigal Son, my least favorite), there is a slight experimentation, like in songs such as Murders In The Rue Morgue, Drifter, and maybe even Twilight Zone and the title track, another huge Maiden classic. These mentioned songs are for sure my favorite, even though we also have Wrathchild (a big hit, thus another classic), Purgatory, and the excellent Genghis Khan, a great instrumental track, just as good as Transilvania, from their previous work. While Innocent Exile is another great song, Another Life never appealed to me, in fact it's, together with Prodigal Son, my least favorite.

We surely can't say this is a bad album, quite the contrary it's very good, even though it has it's weak moments, unlike the band's following album. Four stars.
