5.0 out of 5 stars Sequel to an awesome album June 11 2004
By Ironman
Format:Audio CD
Iron Maiden continued their road to legendary status with their last punk-styled album. Dramatic differences occur in this album as the album is more punkier than the first. Below are my comments:
The Ides Of March: 4.9/5 - The second straight Iron Maiden opener to have 0.1 marks knocked off. A great,instrumental song but way too short.
Wrathchild: 5/5 - The hit of the album. Excellent song with amazing vocals and music. This is the second masterpiece of this era, and it sure as hell deserves to be a masterpiece. It also has my favourite bass intro ever!
Murders In The Rue Morgue: 5/5 - Another awesome song with the best chorus on the album. I understand why fans love this song and I don't blame them. But, there's just one question that's whopping my ass good...how in the hell did Iron Maiden get such long lyrics into a song that's just under 5 minutes long?
Another Life: 5/5 - Nice song with a catchy intro. No filler but may need more rythem. Still great though.
Genghis Khan: 5/5 - One of the best instrumentals I've ever heard, the music also matches the title, alot like Transylvania(I'm not comparing the songs). The intro's also cool.
Innocent Exile: 5/5 - Amazing bass intro, cool rythem and solo, deathyfiying drums, and that's all I've gotta say.
Killers: 5/5 - This is perhaps my longest full-mark streak. The album's title-track features a haunting bass intro, and a breathtaking mid-section to the song. Must NOT be skipped!
Prodigal Son: 5/5 - When I first heard this song, I was like "My God, this song is sure to be a classic", and I was right. One of my favourite tracks on the album and has what I believe is Paul Di'Anmo's best vocals ever.

Killers (1981.) Iron Maiden's second album.
In 1979, the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal took England by storm. Hundreds of hard-rocking bands emerged overnight, and every one of them was excellent. Unfortunately, very few of these bands found success in their music, and an even smaller number of them found success outside their native United Kingdom. Iron Maiden is a rare example of one of the genre's bands that achieved worldwide success. Through the course of the mid and late seventies, Iron Maiden had a number of line-up changes. They had recorded a demo collection and several tracks for compilations. Finally, come 1980 and the band released their first album, an excellent fusion of punk and metal. They followed it up in 1981, with their second album, Killers - the first one of their albums to feature the legendary Adrian Smith on guitar! Read on for my review of this album.
Once again, this album is VERY DIFFERENT from anything that the band recorded with Dickinson at the helm, but at the same time, it is a very good album. This is the first album on which Maiden began to take an "epic" approach to their music, and since Di'Anno (not Dickinson) is singing, this comes off as one of the band's most different-sounding albums. Ides Of March, an instrumental, kicks off the album. It's a short track that isn't all that great, but it does the "opener" job very well. It immediately fades into the classic Wrathchild. It's a hard and heavy song the way only Maiden could record one back in their Di'Anno days. I'm really not surprised that many of the band's fans call this one of the best songs from the Di'Anno days. Next up we have my personal favorite cut on the album, Murders In The Rue Morgue. The song is based on the Edgar Allan Poe poem of the same name.

5.0 out of 5 stars not as good as the first but still great May 8 2004
By Ren
Format:Audio CD
As you may already know, this is the second Iron Maiden album.
Paul's last album with Maiden and the last of the raw, punk influenced era. Very good overall.
1. THE IDES OF MARCH (9.5/10)
This is an incredibly short instrumental (1:45). Its very good though. The drumming and guitar are freaking awesome.
2. WRATHCHILD (9/10)
A classic Maiden song. Bass and vocals really shine here.
3. MURDERS IN THE RUE MORGUE (10/10)
This song kicks ass! Its my favorite one on this album. It starts out slow and eerie then explodes into a fast paced adventure. The chorus is very catchy and very good.
4. ANOTHER LIFE (8/10)
The drums and guitar on this song are great but the verses get repeated too much which is kind of annoying. Still a good song, but my least favorite one on here.
5. GENGHIS KHAN (9.5/10)
I think this is Maiden's best instrumental. Drumming and guitars are outstanding! Sounds kinda barbaric just like the mongolian ruler Genghis Khan.
6. INNOCENT EXILE (8/10)
Pretty good song. Just a little better than Another Life though.
7. KILLERS (10/10)
This song rocks. The begining with the bass is just sick. The guitars come in and start rocking. The song sounds kinda eerie.
8. PRODIGAL SON (10/10)
A lighter side of Iron Maiden. Guitars aren't as heavy as other songs but its a great song. Vocals are good too.
9. PURGATORY (9.75/10)
An awesome, fast rocker! Paul's singing is great, especially on the chorus.
10. TWILIGHT ZONE (9/10)
The vocals are really cool on this one and so are the lyrics. Too bad its so short.
11. DRIFTER (9/10)
The vocals are also very nice here. The solo in the middle is really cool.
Yep, this is another classic Iron Maiden album.

It's incredible to believe that the power and brutality reached by Maiden was never matched in any of their releases afterwards. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Maiden rules
I just want to reiterate what everyone else has already said on here: Maidan is an awesome metal band, harkening back to a much cooler time when 'rock stars' could actually play. Read more
