Angel Of Mercy
Seventh son having no fillers?

To be honest, I've not listened to that album in a while, so I can't remember!

Back In the Village is FUCKING INTENSE and really stands out among a lot of their other songs. You guys are nuts! xD


I agree, that song is awesome! xD The intro riff is also one of the most difficult riffs Ive ever tried to play. lol IMO "Powerslave" has no fillers whatsoever.

I also love "Innocent Exile", its one of my faves from Killers, and one of my fave Maiden songs overall. I especially love Adrian's solo in it, and the way the pace picks up near the end. <33 I dont think "Sun And Steel" is a filler either, its a great song!

I'll go through every Maiden album listing every song Id class as filler.

Iron Maiden: Charlotte The Harlot
Killers: Another Life
Number Of The Beast: None
Piece Of Mind: Quest For Fire
Powerslave: None
Somewhere In Time: None. Although "Heaven Can Wait" isnt quite as great as the other songs on the album.
Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son: None
No Prayer For The Dying: None (I know almost nobody will agree with me on this, but what the hell? lol)
Fear Of The Dark: Fear Is The Key, The Apparition, (although I do love the solo in it! ) Weekend Warrior
The X Factor: Fortunes Of War, Blood On The World's Hands
Virtual XI: The Angel And The Gambler, The Educated Fool, Dont Look To The Eyes Of A Stranger
Brave New World: None
Dance Of Death: Gates Of Tomorrow, New Frontier, Face In The Sand
A Matter Of Life And Death: For The Greater Good Of God

Although I may be alone here... Face In the Sand is one of my favorites. It sounds really intense in a sort of dark and passionate way (hard to describe) and is and majestic as fuck! :O

Hmm, I'd say tracks 1 through 10 from that album are filler.

The list I made was more from a retard's perspective.. of course Maiden don't have that many fillers. However, the later albums do have some stuff I'd call filler, Dance of Death in particular. Back In the Village is an annoying song, quite cool but the ending vocal line is so darn ugly. Also, I have to try that riff! ^^

No. I think "Wasting Love" is a great song! That video is absolutely horrendous though.

Nah. The worst single Maiden ever released is "Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter". This song is an atrocity, a musical abomination combined to utterly stupid lyrics.

"Wasting Love" sucks donkey balls too.

Totally agreed.
Worst single and song ever by Maiden.
Btw Can I Play With Madness is also a bad single.

I didn't mention it because I don't consider the Blaze-era as being really Iron Maiden. They sounded like a different band at that time and everything they did was pure shit.

I'm shure it's typical Iron Maiden, there will be good songs and some bad ones but within three months the hordes will have forgotten it.

Based on the two songs released so far I'm afraid to say it will suck. I'm just hoping for one really cool and surprising tune like Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg and Legacy.

You can definitely tell how the last decade has taken a toll on Dickenson's vocals. He's getting up in his years though and his voice lasted a lot longer than many of his contemporarys'. And even if people don't like their last few albums as much, Iron Maiden was never one of those bands that dashed it's reputation by trying to become more radio friendly. When all is said and done, they will have quite the catelog of respectable albums.

They're typical mid-range Iron Maiden, with "El Dorado" having some potential to become good after several listens (I listened to both available tracks only twice, so that I won't skip them while listening to the whole album). I remember thinking that "Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg" sucked when I had first heard it, but it really grew on me, and now I think it's excellent. Hopefully, the same will happen with "El Dorado". As for "The Final Frontier", it's a typical short-fast-Maiden-opener, not better or worse than most of their short openers.
