3 stars I remember buying this album quite soon after it was released. To be honest, it is a fairly decent debut album,although the sound is a bit tinny and raw at times.

The standout tracks are "Remember Tomorrow", which starts off slowly and builds up into some remarkably tight metal. (with some nice time changes) "Phantom of the opera" is probably the most progressive track on this album and is over seven minutes long. The twin guitars of Stratton and Murray work well in unison, while Harris almost seems to play his bass like a lead guitar at times! A great song to listen to on headphones. "Transylvania" is a great instrumental with a memorable melody, that you will find yourself humming, long after you have put this album back on the shelf. "Strange World" is a nice slow number with some nice laid back singing from Paul di Anno.

The other tracks "Prowler" "Sanctuary" "Running Free" (the single taken from this album and also the weakest song) "Charlotte the Harlot" and "Iron Maiden" are standard metal songs, which are not bad songs, but they donīt come close to the classic Maiden tracks, such as "Phantom of the opera" or "Transylvania"
