3 stars Despite being filled with enough cheese to fill the pyramid on the album's cover, "Powerslave" is a juggernaut of infectious and bombastic metal, containing some now classic Maiden tracks as well as there most ambitious composition up to this point. "2 Minutes" might just be the most fun Iron Maiden chorus of all time, while "Powerslave" and "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" show the band experimenting with their trademark sound to create some powerful new themes. Add to this not one-- but two songs about swordfighting, and you've got a recipe for heavy metal excellence. For fans of the genre and the band-- "Powerslave" is impossible to disappoint.
