Do you think this poll is better than your Geddy voice poll?

The Book Of Souls. Such a great album; however, I'm slightly bummed that I couldn't vote for Brave New World, which I believe is Maiden's best since Seventh Son... .

I deliberately left that out because it's popularity is well known. So this is poll for to find out the most popular of the latest four albums.

Brave New World would have easily won if it was an option. Right call to leave it out in order to make things a little more interesting.

Book Of Souls gets my vote. After that would be Dance Of Death. I still enjoy Life And Death and Final Frontier from time to time since there is some very strong material on both. But there are also plenty of slower, boring moments on them that are not aging well for me.

There are good songs on every Maiden album, but they started going on auto pilot a long time ago

I went with Dance Of Death  ... the band sounds inspired ( for the most part ) on that one  ... I like The Journeyman

Understood.  I don't blame you for leaving BNW out.

Me, too!  Of course, I bought it the first day it came out (some special edition that looks like a book) and made it through Disk 1.  I tried Disk 2 but didn't make it all the way through until the next day on the way to work.  It took a few weeks for the album to "take", but when it did...WOO HOO!

My top three tracks are "The Red And The Black", "Death Or Glory", and the sublime "Empire Of The Clouds".
