Wow that's a tough question. All five star albums in my world. I'm going to bail out and say i like them all equally.

Powerslave. I love the other two, but Iron Maiden just put everything right for that one. Especially the guitar sound.

Powerslave
..that and Seventh Son + Somehwere In Time represent the holy trinity of Iron Maiden albums for me. I also like A Matter Of Life and Death a lot and the very early albums.

I'm the weirdest iron maiden fan. I like their first two albums, fear of the dark, x factor, somewhere in time and beast...
I don't care too much of the Bruce Dickinson albums although i think he was their best vocalist.

Powerslave by quite a long way. 4 stars

Seventh son & Brave new World 3 stars a piece.

Persoanlly, I prefered Maiden when they were less progresive The number of the Beast is still my favourite Maiden album.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Very hard question. I've was already a big fan of Iron Maiden before I had my first kiss, so I love a lot albums they made. Powerslave is however not one of my favorites because of Back in the Village and Flash of the Blade, two tracks I find disturbing.

Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son rules all.

It actually sounds like heavy Yes in places.

Brave New World. To me it's maybe the most powerful IM album. Also it's the first IM album I bought to my dear son Smile

The X Factor is heavily underrated. If it wasn't released under IM I think it would have had a much more positive acclaim
