Just for fun Iron Maiden favorites

Post by 11razorwire on Sat Aug 27, 2016 7:51 pm

What is your favorite Iron Maiden album, 5 favorite songs (I know how hard this will be, you can list them in order or randomly) and favorite album cover (since they have so many awesome ones, try to narrow it down to one. You can include any live or greatest hits album). I thought about this at work today and here is what my personal choices ended up being (at least as of right now):

Album-Piece of Mind


5 songs (randomly)-Run to the Hills, Phantom Of The Opera, Brave New World, 2 Minutes To Midnight, Flight of Icarus.


Cover-This was actually the hardest of the 3 questions for me, but I guess I'll go with No Prayer for the Dying.

Cool update, HC. While I haven't deviated on my list for this particular band, sometimes it just happens.

I had to go look at there catalog and narrow it down lol. Strangely enough I'm very unfamiliar with there new catalog I've only had the chance to listen to and own DOD and I'm not sure if I liked it or hated it. It's definitely a different sound but there's some gems there especially the title song Dance Of Death and No More Lies.

Album: Piece of Mind (this was almost if not the first metal album I ever heard, it just holds a special place)

Songs:
- To Tame a Land (limiting myself to 1 from this album)
- Hallowed Be Thy Name
- 2 Minutes to Midnight
- Fear of the Dark
- Rime of the Ancient Mariner

Cover: They have a unique vibe but none grab me as great.  The self-titled is artistically effective with zero cheese.  The light pole always reminds me of a needle though.
