Well...seeing as I've only heard 4 of their albums....I'll just rank those

Seventh Son of a Seventh Son
The Number of the Beast
Powerslave
Piece of Mind

then top five songs...
Infinite Dreams
2 Minutes to Midnight
22 Acacia Avenue
Hallowed Be Thy Name
Children of the Damned

kind of odd that SSoaSS only has one song in my top five and Number has three, yet I rank SSoaSS over Number...oh well.
You need to listen to Somewhere in Time, Killers and Iron Maiden and then Live After Death.

Aye, I'm sure it won't be long before I get another album. I picked up SSoaSS just over the summer, and that was months ago.

Have you heard any songs with Paul Di'anno on vocals? If not, you may be in for a huge disappointment having already heard so much with Bruce as their singer. I got the cassette of Killers from my friend back in high school having no idea there was a different vocalist before Dickinson. I had already heard everything from the 80s with Bruce and loved it all. So, Di'anno's voice was quite the surprise to me at first. In fact, I disliked it so much I wrote off those first two Maiden albums for many years. Only accepting the live versions of them with Bruce.

Just thought I would give you a heads up just in case.

I know that Di'Anno sang on those two records, but I've only heard snippets of his voice or those songs. Interestingly, I didn't think I cared much for Dickinson's voice before hearing 2 Minutes to Midnight. So having gone back and forth on him, I won't be too disappointed to have to make an adjustment to Di-Anno's voice as well.

nothing wrong with dianno, he's just not renaissance fair material like bruce is. the first two records are still better than anything released post-seventh son. but 80s bruce is definitely unbeatable

I'm wondering what song Lauderdale is?

Whenever I read such a silly statement I can only think the person has never heard anything they've done with Bruce. He elevated the band's song quality so much with his voice that nothing Maiden did without him even comes close.

I love both of the Di'Anno albums.  Certainly more than any of post Seventh Son albums.

Hard to leave out Prodigal Son, Prowler, Strange World, Hallowed... and a dozen more.
Even harder to leave out their fantastic cover songs of Thin Lizzy, Nektar, Jethro Tull, Stray...
...I love their version of I Can't See My Feelings...

Wrong! I'm pretty sure goose grew up with the first two Iron Maiden albums and that makes a whole lotta difference.
Hell broke loose and the world went mad when NotB was released. Me,... I was totally disappointed back then and it took me years to really appreciate the new line-up. To this day I call the Burr/Di'Anno-era - Iron Maiden, the rest is just Maiden.
Best of both worlds baby!

Or perhaps was a Maiden fan before Bruce joined.  Number of the Beast was a great follow up to Killers, but for me they lost their edge after that.  I do love Book of Souls, however.
