This is one of my favorite heavy metal albums of all time. It's just a really good album, everything that one needs to be a good metal album. The only song that stops it from being a five-star album is the sort of filler 'Gangland'. But that doesn't take away the glory of songs like '22 Acacia Avenue', 'Invaders', and, of course, 'Run To The Hills', which deals with the plight of the American Indian, which is a subject rather hackneyed, but Maiden were really the first headbangers to do it. Many old adults did not like this album at the time of its release, but now, with all the death metal garabage going on, the slightly Satanic lyrics seem tame. This is one of the greatesr metal albums to be ever recorded. Everyone should appreciate it, cause no metalhead's collection is full without it.

This album is one of Iron Maiden's best. It was a make or break album for the band after the GREAT Paul Di'Anno left. I must say that I prefer Di'Anno's vocals more than Bruce Dickinson although Dickinson must surely rank as one of the greatest metal vocalists of all time. This one really grabs you by the cajone`s and doesn't let go favorite tune is probably Total Eclipse or the title track. Overall this is prime classic British Heavy Metal and is way better (...)

Iron Maiden's third album The Number of the Beast was originally released in April of 1982 in the US on the Capitol subsidary Harvest(same label that Pink Floyd was on from late 1969-73 and The Little River Band's first four album was on this label here in the US as well). This album was their second with producer Martin Birch and guitarist Adrian Smith but was the first with new frontman Bruce Dickinson whom was light years ahead of predecessor Paul Di'anno in the singing and stage presence departments. This album was recorded and mixed at Battery Studios in late 1981 but it doesn't sound like it at all. This album has no weak moment and bassist Steve Harris was on fire with his songwriting contributions on all tracks except as noted. It kicks off with the thundering Invaders which signalled that Maiden meant business. Next was Children of the Damned which is a classic track as well. The Prisoner follows(co-written by guitarist Adrian Smith) and is based on the show of the same name that was huge on television in the 1960s. Next is 22 Acacia Avenue which is part two to Charlotte the Harlot(and co-written by guitarist Dave Murray) and Bruce just wails on this track. The legendary title cut follows and had some controversy when released as the band was labelled Satanic by Jerry Falwell and Tipper Gore's PMRC but this song just kicks ass. Next was the album's first single and still a classic on rock today Run to the Hills which was about the desecration of the American Indian tribes. Gangland follows and was the only track not written by Harris, this time it was Smith and Maiden drummer Clive Burr who wrote it. It is considered a weak tune but Bruce's vocal was unearthly as he hit high screams which were not heard since either Robert Plant, Rob Halford or Ian Gillan.Read more ›

Iron Maiden's Third Album
This is the album where Iron Maiden really got thier true identity. They acquired Bruce Dickinson and got rid of thier first singer. I prefer this change because it seemed to take away alot of the punk influence Iron Maiden had on the first two albums. This is when Iron Maiden laid down the solid foundation for what future albums would follow. Although the two albums that followed this one, Piece of Mind and Powerslave, showed improvement and further honing of thier musical skill, this one should be no less credited as one of the best Iron Maiden records. Highlights Include; Number of the Beast, Run to the Hills and of course Hallowed Be Thy Name- possibly thier finest moment

A classic piece of NWOBHM. Noone could sing/scream like Bruce, the twin lead guitars of Adrian/Dave, and the bass playing/songwriting of Steve make this one of the greatest metal albums ever. It must be in your collection.

1982, a great year for metal. Judas Priest realeses the unforgetable Screaming for Vengeance and Venom releases its incredible album Black Metal. But '82 was for Iron Maiden with the release of the epic Number of the Beast. This album is the last with Clive Burr an the first with the promosing Bruce Dickinson. Anyway heres how it goes:
1 Invaders: A great way to start of the album 9/10.

2 Children of the Damned: good song with great guitar work by Murray and Smith. 8.5/10
3 The Prisoner: one of the highlights of the album 9.5/10
4 22 Acacia Avenue: The second part of the charlot series. really good riffs and lirycs make this song perfect in every wich way 10/10
5 Number of the Beast: one of Maidens most famous songs and one of my favorites. this was the first Iron Maiden song i listened to 10/10
6 Run to the Hills: good song on how the white took over the indian lands 9.5/10
7 Gangland: an ok song 7.5/10
8 Total Eclipse: last of Paul D'ianno although he isnt singing he wrote it. 8.5/10
9 Hallowed be Thy Name: I first heard Cradle of Filths version of this song and i thought it was great, but after listening to the original i was blown away. The guitar work? Incredible. The Lirycs? soulful and discriptive. this is one the best song in the history of music! Worth buying the cd just for this song!10/10
Anyway the Number of the Beast has to be in evaery metalheads collection. Buy it IMMEDIATELY. If you like this album i strongly recommend:
Ride the Lightning
Screaming for vengeance
the Glorious Burden
or any Iron Maiden album of the '80s or early '90s. Al hail Judas Priest And UP THE IRONS!!!
