4 stars A heavy metal classic and considered to be the best (or one of the best) by fans. It's certainly an excellent one but I think the following "Piece of Mind" was even better!

It was the first album with singer Bruce Dickinson, who proved to have quite a voice from the start with "Invaders". "Children of The Damned" is also a top track but the highlights for me are "The Prisoner" (at the beginning it features some dialogue from a 60's TV series of the same name) and "The Number of the Beast" which along with "Run To The Hills" and "Hallowed Be Thy Name" became part of the bands set list for most of their tours.

Iron Maiden caused a bit of controversy and were dubbed a satanic band in the US after this album's release due to the title and content of the songs. Isn't that all part of being a true heavy metal band?

This is a great album by a great band and more than worth checking out. 4 solid stars.
