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. Eddie For President!!!

Somewhere In Time is my favourite album, mainly becuase it has Wasted Years and Heaven Can Wait. However I do like Phantom Of The Opera from Paul Di'Anno era.

Yeah, Somewhere in Time rocks I also like Stranger in a strange land, Caught Somewhere in Time and Alexander the Great a lot. In fact, I like the other songs too a lot but those are the best ones from that album

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!

Wow, not many people like Bailey! Glad to know I'm not the only one who thinks that the albums Maiden made with aren't their worst ones

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.

I agree! No matter if it's Bruce singing or not, it's still good ol' Maiden And Steve still writes like that but I haven't heard anybody else do that...

I thinks Iron Maiden in the 80's are the best of Iron Maiden years. For me Powerslaves is really the highest point of their career. Ireally love that album.

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.

OK, I think very many aren't going to awnser 70's Sorry I didn't include it in the list, I only included the decades when they have made albums, didn't really think that anybody would choose the 70's. But nice to see someone did

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!
