Maiden albums:

1: Powerslave--- I love Maiden, and this one is their best.

The next four, no order:

2: Piece of Mind
3: Killers
4: Iron Maiden
5: Dance of Death

(many others of other days would be there)

Songs:
In no order and definitely something that would change day to day:

1: Paschendale
2: Rime of the Ancient Mariner
3: Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner
4: To Tame a Land
5: Phantom of the Opera

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 those songs with Bruce.

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

Nah, got into Maiden right about the time Bruce left them in 1993 or so. Rush and Maiden have been my top two bands for a very long time now.

As I said before, I do appreciate the first two albums much more now. I still firmly believe that in getting rid of Paul and hiring Bruce the band lost nothing but gained everything. The songwriting quality and overall experience of listening to them took a major leap forward with Bruce.

I enjoy every new maiden album but they have been writing the same tune at varying lengths since 2000. nothing after seventh son is as good as killers, phantom, rue morgue, wrathchild, etc

Not even Paschendale? I think that's easily one of their best ever and my favorite era is the Quest-Seventh period.

I think Maiden lost a lot with Paul, I think he's perfect for those albums and Bruce added nothing to those songs.

That said, Bruce is a FAR superior song writer and of course his vocals are part of Maiden's trademark now. He definitely is the better person for the band.

As the other similar thread, with this one, I think, and feel that I'm not able to name my personal top five Iron Maiden c.ds, and albums, and songs.  Not including "the X Factor, and Virtual XI", which I haven't liked, I've liked all of other Iron Maiden's recorded, and released material of songs.

Somewhere In Time has been a long-standing favorite. I'll just go ahead and nominate a couple of songs. Sea of Madness and Stranger In A Strange Land. Best album cover if you have vinyl.
Never was entirely crazy about the first album, but Killers is awesome. Ides/Wrathchild rocks. Love Prodigal Son.
I'll give Number the nod for the first time I ever heard Maiden. Someone brought a cassette with them in high school Electronics class. Thanks, dude.
Brave New World is a Killer(s) :laughing guy: comeback for Bruce.
As of today, I'll put in for Piece Of Mind. Lotsa great albums, their newer stuff is good also.
