Best Iron Maiden Album EVER
Number of the Beast and Powerslave are awesome too, but this album is very underrated. Die With Your Boots On is a killer tune, Where Eagles Dare rocked hard, Flight of Icarus is a classic, Revelations was a good mix of rock and slow, and, of course, THE TROOPER!! IRON MAIDEN’S BEST SONG EVER
First Maiden/Metal album ever heard.
This is the albumn that did it for me. Metal forever! Not their best but enough to leave an impression on a 13 year old in 1984.
This was the line up that changed everything
The Trooper is playing the live version...
This is messed up. Fix please.
Fly as high as the sun
A true masterpiece of an album! There is simply nothing these guys can't do. Highly recommend Flight of Icarus.

Masterpiece of Mind
For some reason, the remastered version caused the old reviews to be deleted. So here's my review. The first five songs are absolute gold. Where Eagles Dare and The Trooper are two of my favorite Maiden tracks of all time. However, the album is way too frontloaded, and the last four tracks are mediocre. Still Life isn't bad, but Quest for Fire and Sun and Steel both have lame hooks by Iron Maiden standards. To Tame A Land is pretty good but doesn't measure up to Hallowed Be Thy Name, Powerslave, or Rime of the Ancient Mariner. Overall, this is my third favorite album behind Number of the Beast and Powerslave. The 2015 remastered version is definitely a lot better than the old version, and that goes for all the albums.
