5.0 out of 5 stars Despite what certain spastic children may say... July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
...this CD is an amazing piece of work from the best of the NWOBHM bands. Sadly, a fellow by the name of "lucifer_666" doesn't appear to agree. He appears to prefer King Diamond, stating that "those guys [Note: He means King Diamond here, sadly, not Iron Maiden] are an awsome band with talent and originality and amazing solos with intense lirycs".
Now, I've never heard any King Diamond, so I can't judge them as opposed to Iron Maiden. But if this is the intelligence level of their average fan, I shall stay as far away from them as humanly possible. I don't know if Steve Harris ever has written "intense lirycs", but this is probably because I don't know what the hell a "liryc" is. Sigh. Still, I suppose that this is all you can expect from someone that calls themself "lucifer" in order to get attention. I AM TEH EVIL! PAY ATNETION TO MEEE!!1111!!!!1111 OMG LOL
Really, though, this album rules. You can't beat Rime Of The Ancient Mariner. Best Maiden song ever. Aces High, 2 Minutes To Midnight, The Duellists, and Powerslave (the title track) itself ain't exactly bad either. Second best Maiden album - nothing beats Number Of The Beast. Powerslave, however, is better than even the substantial achievements of Brave New World, Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son, Piece Of Mind, and Somewhere In Time. And I won't even go into how superior it is to the Blaze Bayley albums. To summarize: Get this album. But try to listen to other tracks than "Flash Of The Blade", which is horrendously overrated.

5.0 out of 5 stars MAIDEN OWNES!!!! July 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
I must say that this is probably my all around favorite Iron Maiden album. I actually recieved this cd as a gift, and wasn't exactly sure it was going to be as good as other Maiden albums I had previously heard. To my delight i was WRONG!! some of its songs are different from old Maiden, but still amazing. The song (other than Powerslave) that caught my ear immediately was Flash of the Blade, simply an amazing sound all around, especially the vocals and the solo's.In fact the only song on here that i didnt think to be excellent is Back in the Village. It's still a pretty good song, but it just doesnt seem to fit with the others as well. Anyways, buy this album if your any bit interested in Maiden, and if your not than buy it anyway and you will be. heres my rating for each track:
Aces High 9.8
2 Minutes to Midnight 8.8
Losfer Words (Big 'Orra) 9.2
Flash of the Blade 10.0+
The Duellists 9.3
Back in the Village 7.6
Powerslave 10.0+
Rime of the Ancient Mariner 10.0

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Heavy Metal Classic July 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the greatest heavy metal albums of all time. The album is actually genius, how they made metal the way it was in the 80's, with albums like this. As you can see from the album cover, the whole album has an overall Egyptian theme, especially the title track. This is where Iron maiden found their true sound. Not to say that Number Of The Beast wasn't genius, it's just that the evil lyrics are a little overboard. But this, what can I say? This is one of the best albums from the best band in the world. Get this and you'll be banging your head for the rest of your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maidens Finest Album June 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
Im going to start by saying this album is in my top 5 favorite cds and i have over 100.
1. Aces High: This starts the album off with a bang. The guitar riffing is fast, high pitched, and adrenline pumping, not a very heavy song, but still metal and just as good.There is also a great solo by Dave Murray. You'll like this song if you like faster, higher pitched, metal songs. 10/10
2. Two Minutes to Midnight: This was Maidens highest single of this album and for good reason, it has a cool riff and a very catchy chorus. Bruce dickinson does a pretty good vocal performance on this song. The guitar riff is much like Ted Nugent's Stormtrooping. 10/10
3. Losfer Words (Big Orra):This was Maidens last instrumenatal,
and unfortunatly it was not another Ghengis Khan. It has a fast heavy Prog Rock Sounding riff to it, this song is complety unique and I haven't heard anything like it. 8/10
4. Flash of the blade: The song starts out with a unusual riff that sound like it could be part of a Ozzy Osbourne guitar solo.
when the lyrics start both guitarists do your typical iron maiden power cord riffing. There is a cool sychronized solo played in octaves in the guitar bridge. 8/10

5. The Duellists. Starts off with more heavy guitar riffing. Steve Harris plays his bass great in this song, providing a good backup sound in the chorus and the guitar solo that follows. Some parts of this song are very heavy, other parts are filled with melody, and in some parts there is both. There is an excellent guitar bridge and solo. 9/10
6. Back in the Village: It's a decent song but it pales in comparison to all the other songs, it has a really wierd sounding main riff. When the guitar solo starts at 2:30 the song gets really good with good riffs and a guitar solo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Maiden album June 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
Ok, first things f**kin first. Lucifer666 goes off trashing saying that Iron Maiden is "UNORIGINAL"?! Iron Maiden was THE driving force of the NWOBHM. Even worse, he says that Mercyful Fate is better? I shake my head in disgust. Mercyful Fate is a disastrous joke! King Diamond is talentless as s**t. He sounds like Tiny Tim gone metal, and the guitar work is very average. Atleast Maiden's tone is unique. F**k Mercyful Fate, they're "UNORIGINAL", they copied off Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. Oh yeah, very original name, Lucifer666. Whoooah. He's an evil motherf**ker! He frightens me so much I piss my pants. You're a joke man.
Anyways, Powerslave is one of Maiden's most consistent releases. Aces High is always a good song that is a favorite amongst many fans. After that is 2 Minutes to Midnight. Pretty good, but tends to be overrated. Losfer Words is a cool instrumental, but Transylvania and Ghengis Khan are better. Flash of the Blade is a really cool song. Easily better than 2 Minutes to Midnight. It was used in a really messed up Argento flick, "Phenomena". Then we've got The Duellists, which is equally nice. Back in the Village is once again really good. The Title Track is awesome. Rime of the Ancient Mariner is one of the best epic tracks they've done. This album isn't perfect, but it's a great one.
