4 stars The 'Classic' album to many, now do i think that way? well of course, i mean its Iron Maiden..this album was a match made in heaven if the early Maiden was missing something it would be a better singer then bammm, they get Mr.Bruce Dickinson and of course they were set for World Domination. The songs themselves are just so powerfull and different from their first 2 albums, with the lyrics moving away into fantasy territory and a more progressive approach to song writing, you still have your rockers ( THE PRISONER, the title track NUMBER OF THE BEAST, RUN TO THE HILLS) the 'epic' track HALLOWED BE THY NAME and the slower song CHILDREN OF THE DAMNED, 22 ACACIA AVENUE is also a standout track being the follow up to Charlotte The Harlot from their first album, all in all again another fine release;

Invaders - 8/10 Children Of The Damned - 8/10 The Prisoner - 9/10 22 Acacia Avenue - 9/10 The Number Of The Beast - 7/10 Run To The Hills - 7/10 Gangland - 7/10 Total Eclipse - 8/10 Hallowed Be Thy Name - 10/10

MY CONCLUSION? another great album, if you havent heard it, well worth checking out...
