Which one do you like the most? 80's, 90's or 2000's Maiden? What's the best album from that decade? 80's: Iron Maiden Killers The Number of the Beast Piece of Mind Powerslave Somewhere in Time Seventh Son of a Seventh Son 90's No Prayer for the Dying Fear of the Dark The X Factor Virtual XI 2000's Brave New World Dance of Death A Matter of Life and Death I think the best decade is the 80's and the best album from that decade is maybe Somewhere in Time.

nothing newer that they've done can hold a candle to anything they did in the 80's. early Maiden gave us some great songs, but once they enlisted Bruce Dickenson, there was no turning back. i don't think many singers can even come close to that "air raid siren" scream that Bruce can do.

The 80's Maiden is definitely the best though I would prefer Maiden with Dickinson. The number of the beast is still a great album even if it's pre nicko mcbrain but in my opinion, regardless of who's on drums or 2nd guitar (or even third!), Maiden with Dickinson is the be(a)st!

80's for sure. The first 6 albums you listed are just amazing. I love pre-Dickinson just as much as post-Dickinson. I can't even pick a favorite among those 6 albums. Some songs hold a lot of meaning and bring me back to some fond memories of my school days and the friends I had back then. Also, who writes like that anymore? I mean, songs about war, the supernatural, poems and literature? It's just fantastic.

Well first of all I want to say that I love Maiden, I am a fan, so I like their work in general. In my opinion, their best albums are those from the 80's: Piece of Mind, Powerslave, Seventh son and Number of the beast. Those are the best in my opinion, and I would add another one from the 90's: Fear of the dark. They have other good albums, others not so good, but these are the best for me.

Yeah, but happily Maiden hasn't changed very much... I mean their style and everything has remained about the same. The only thing that has changed is the producer and that means mixing is very different. They also are getting old and that affects Bruce's voice and so on. But they still are the best band in the world!
