3.0 out of 5 stars 66"6" out of 10, May 13, 2005
This review is from: Number of the Beast (Audio CD)
At the risk of being blasted by the other Maiden fans on here, I give this album 3 stars. While I like many of the songs on this album, I don't think it lives up to Maiden's best work. Invaders is a solid opener (but not as good as Where Eagles Dare or Aces High). Children of the Damned is a great tune, although a little slow. The Prisoner is the standout B-side from the album, a great song. Hallowed be Thy Name is a great song, as is Number of the Beast. The rest of the album doesn't live up to Maiden standards in my opinion. Run to the Hills is a good song, but wouldn't be a standout on Piece of Mind or Powerslave. 22 Acacia Avenue is funny, that's about it- not a great song. Total Eclipse is completely forgettable; I've heard the track at least two dozen times and still have no idea how the tune goes. Gangland is quite possibly the worst track Iron Maiden ever recorded with Bruce. 2 really bad and one mediocre song out of 9 total is not Maiden's best. Look to Maiden's next 4 albums with Bruce for the Golden Years. This one misses the mark in my opinion. Sorry to all those who love this record. It's only my opinion.
