This has to be one of Iron Maiden's best albums of all. It has everything from a fast and furious metal assault such as "Aces High", to an instrumental song such as "Losfer Words".

It all starts off with "Aces High", a song about WWII dogfights. A good heavy metal song with a good amount of guitar solo's and superb lyrics. It has a memorable tune that you keep rocking to in your head for hours. Next comes another classic song "2 Minutes to Midnight". Slower than the previous song, the guitars are very tight while the rhythm is powerbul as Dickinson sings away. The many guitar solos in this kick some metal ass. Next comes "Losfer Words" one of the four instrumental's that Iron Maiden has done. Not as great as the other's but definitely worth the time to listen to. The drums keep a constant sound with some nice guitar and bass in there also. The next song is a definite killer; "Flash of the Blade" starts off with a nice guitar solo then picks up into a nice beat. A great song about being a swordsman and it rocks to the very end. The next is "Duellists" a kind of cross bread between "Flash of the Blade" and "Powerslave" a bit, definitely worth listing to but not as great as the others. Another metal assault is "Back in the Village"; this song is good all around a nice blend of drums and guitar. "Powerslave", well what can I say, its killer, lyrics about an evil Egyptian god and great music to fallow it up, an instant classic. The last song on the list is "Rime of the Ancient Mariner", this song pounds with base, the drums flowing and the guitar sounds ever so killer.

Iron Maiden has a real masterpiece here, if you don't have it, go buy it, you won't be disappointed...

Have You Guys Noticed This?

We're working on that. Wikipedia isn't supposed to have links to unofficial reviews...especially ones written so long ago.


You mean, "unociffical reviews" is the guest reviews?

Exactly. Only Staff reviews are official (and some Elite reviews - anything without the guest review disclaimer) and they shouldn't be linking to reviews on our site that pre-date 2009.
