Saw them on every tour from Killers to Seventh Son, but kind of lost touch after that....fantastic band live, and everything a proper Metal band should be.

Like some others here I think both of those albums are quite good. I don't understand why if someone makes a thread to discuss with others fans their appreciation for a band why some people post stuff like this right away confused13.gif

How about you discuss what you like from the band? That's what the rest of us are here to do.

Got into Maiden this year and they are now one of my favourite bands.

I'd agree with them being the best true heavy metal band. One of them most consistent too.

I think when they do longer more complex songs, they're at their best. Rime of the Ancient Mariner and When the Wild Wind Blows spring to mind.

Surely as a group, one of the strongest lyric writing teams ever...?

I can't understand how you can state that everything from 1992-1999 (Fear Of The Dark through the Blaze Years) is good, yet state that the 'last few albums are complete garbage'?

IMO, they've been on a roll with the last four albums. I'm so glad that we've got one of the best bands back, creating great music like they used to!

Oh, I totally think he can voice whatever he wants.  Probably a true Maiden fan. I would totally understand an oldschool fan not digging the new stuff nearly as much, but to call it 'garbage' is going a way bit far.  I myself hold the first seven Maiden albums on a golden pedestal in my pantheon of rock & metal albums. I really like the last two albums (TFF more than AMOLAD), but I connect with Brave New World and even Dance Of Death much more.

I can understand that, and even can appreciate it from Rush fans (who haven't liked the last few albums.) But calling it garbage? That's an insult to all the people who bought the album and enjoyed it!

Listen, just because you think the older stuff is better, doesn't mean that the people who enjoy the newer stuff are wrong. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and to enjoy what they enjoy.

I think that the X Factor is a great collection of songs and would love to hear it with Bruce on vocals. The few songs that I have heard him sing were amazing, especially Sign of the Cross. No offense to Blaze, I just don't care for his voice. When Bruce left, I was hoping that they would get Dianno back.

For consistent greatness, I would agree...for having greater peak value that lifts the total value of the compilation, Sabbath's first 5 would take it for me overall...Paranoid, especially.   And Master of Puppets has to put Metallica into the mix, for the same reason.    But for the sheer number of great songs, you've got to give it up for Maiden.
