"Rime of The Ancient mariner" One of my top 5 songs of all time.

"Starblind", "Sign of the Cross", "Dream of Mirrors", "Mother Russia" and "22 Acacia Avenue" also come to mind.

Voted for "Powerslave".

"Alexander the Great" is the funniest Maiden song. Bruce sings quotes of history tutorial, very useful to those fans who were lazy to learn lessons at school. LOL

ok that's a really tough poll!
Which one to choose?
Between Phantom of the opera, Ryme...  and Hallowed...  ouffff....
Hmmm I'll go with Phantom of the opera, because It is from their first album,  I'm a fan of Dı Anno's period, and I think I love it a bit more than the other 2.
Phantom of the opera it is then! Thumbs Up

^^^ pretty great choices. I feel that SIGN OF THE CROSS is really underated and it's probably because BLAZE BAYLEY sings on it. overall, THE X FACTOR was a great album. It's VIRTUAL 11 that sucked.

Other, Starblind. What a masterpiece, but it's greatly underrated.

a hard one, the choice was between Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, Sign of the Cross and To Tame a Land for me. Went with the latter.

I love that song, certainly the best from TFF and one of their best songs imo.

Anyway, i vote for Rime.

Gotta go with "Phantom." First Maiden is best Maiden. "Powerslave" and "Rime" are close seconds perhaps...but where's "Caught Somewhere In Time?"

I also think FACE IN THE SAND is quite 'epic' sounding and should get some recognition here.

Quality song. :)

It's between 'To tame a land' and 'Rhyme of the ancient mariner'

I'll toss a coin. Wait...

'To tame a land' gets the vote..

of course they nailed it .  Dickinson can sing anything and make it sound so epic 
he even made a tom jones song sounds so amazing . BTW i vote for fear of the dark

The Wicker Man has more epicness in its final anthem section.
