It's way too easy to write off Iron Maiden as the preserve of maladjusted boys with fluffy, budding moustaches, stuck in the murk of the British 1980s. They were preposterous, they were anachronistic--in utterly appropriate Spinal Tap terms--and their growth rate could not even be charted. But they really do rock, which, as ever, lets them off the hook. Besides which, Powerslave is arguably the best Maiden album precisely because it's so bombastic and lugubrious; it achieves its effect with bludgeoning tactics. Obsessively fast and brutal riffing, interminable repetition and lyrics so epic and gruesome they're irresistible ("The body bags and little rags of children torn in two/And the jellied brains of those who remain, to put the finger right on you"). Grand and absurd, it's also pretty brilliant. --Taylor Parkes --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

The album starts out with what i consider the best opener track of any Maiden album,"Aces High" a fast song,fast guitars,drumming and signing and its not only one of the best songs of the album its one of Iron Maiden's best songs.Next is the catchy "Two Minutes To Midnight" with a great sing along chorus,its a classic."Losfer Words(Big Orra)" is a solid instrumental that features a great guitar solo,its the fourth and last instrumental done by the band up to this point.Then its "Flash Of The Blade" wich i beleve is a great track from this album and an underrated song of Iron Maiden."The Duelist" is nearly an instrumental with Bruce singing not sitting much here,it has a few tempo changes and its mostly good."Back In The Village",its good but i am not too crazy about this one."Powerslave" is another supurb song on this album,the title track is very good,Bruce's vocals and the guitars gives it an Egyptian feel.Read more ›
Bottom line is, your metal collection isn't complete if you don't own this album. Powerslave, and every other Maiden album with the exception of a few, is the epitome of what good music really is. If you don't own this album, do yourself a favor and purchase it now!
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.
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
Rime of the Ancient Mariner 10.0
