5 stars Iron Maiden produced a really professionally recorded heavy metal album here: the sound is VERY sharp, the tracks are structured, the instruments are more synchronized than ever, the tones are crystal clear, and the electric guitars are REALLY razor and disciplined. The drums are outstanding, especially on "Where eagles dare". Harris' bass is, as always, fast, restless and very elaborated: he sometimes plays catchy & melodic patterns of high notes, like on "Die with your boots on" and "Quest for fire". There are MANY MELODIC and clean guitar solos. The previous "Number of the Beast" album sounds less crystal clear. Dickinson's lead & backing vocals are very good and catchy, like on "Sun & steel", "Quest for fire" and "Flight of Icarus". The very structured "To tame a land" can be classified as a metal prog song. "Piece of mind" as only a few more mellow moments, like some bits on "Revelations" and "To tame a land". ALL the tracks are excellent. The album sounds a bit like "Powerslave", except the tracks here sound more varied. "Piece of mind" is one of their best albums.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
