Well, for me "Fear of the Dark" maybe the favourite, since the title track and few other songs just greats.

Hard to say. I could clearly name my least favourite, which happens to be No Prayer...

I voted for Brave New World, as it was my very first Metal album, and i still think that it has a very special atmosphere on tracks like BNW, Blood Brothers and Nomad... and Dream of Mirrors.. and Ghost of the Navigator.. and so on :D

The perfect kick-ass metal album from Maiden is Powerslave though, which is second on my list.

It's really hard to choose... for me all Maiden albums (except the ones with blaze) are excellent.

however I chose Powerslave... and the second one is Number of the Beast.

I don't have all albums, but Seventh Son of a Sevent Son is a total masterpiece.

Don't have all the albums, but my vote goes to "7th Son", followed by "Somewhere in Time".

I come with the first, because without it there would not be the others. It's the most influent Maiden album and the most covered, and it contains the song "Iron Maiden", the most Maidenish song ever created.

^^^ I think X-factor has few killer-tracks, but I have to admit.. don't like Blaze's singing at all :-/

But still, best album ever from IM even you just look the cover to make decision, Somewhere in... ;)

Agreed guys. I finally could listen to his solo-material...
But i kind of like X-Factor a lot...the War/Sadness Theme in those songs is really involving...and the cover´s great too!

Both of them (Number... and 7th) are probably the albums of Maiden that established a certain level in metal standards, but also Piece of Mind set up the typical sound of the band, with Powerslave.

It´s hard to choose only one. Even Fear of The Dark can be chosen , because it´s a really well done album full of good moments, although it was released in the grunge era and the best years of Metallica and Guns´n´Roses, and probably lot of people didn´t pay enough attention to this excelent album.
