3 stars A solid metal album progressing on the framework created by "Number of the Beast", this one features more experimentation in song structure as well as varying tempos and moods, the final result being one of Maiden's most celebrated works. From the soaring chorus of "Flight of Icarus" to the duel-guitar assault of "Trooper", metal heads will find lots to love; for my own part, the fantasy lyrics and dynamic composition of "Revelations" is the standout track, with the moody "To Tame a Land's" growing climax close behind. Although clearly the spiritual successor to the more interesting "Number of the Beast", "Piece of Mind" holds its own because of its sheer enthusiasm and energy. Deservedly one of the band's most entertaining classic albums which won't dissapoint.
