Iron Maiden
June 2000
Released: 1984, EMI Records
Rating: 5.0/5
Reviewer: Joe

With all the hype surrounding Brave New World which features the return of vocalist Bruce Dickinson and guitarist Adrian Smith, I thought it would be appropriate to look back on one of Iron Maiden’s best albums ever, Powerslave.

From start to finish, Powerslave rocks with an unrelenting determination that Maiden have since to match (although Somewhere In Time came pretty close...). The disc begins with the fast and furious "Aces High" and continues on with such classics as "Two Minutes to Midnight", "Flash of the Blade", "Back In the Village", "Powerslave" and finally ends with the epic "Rime of the Ancient Mariner". Every track on this CD is outstanding, including the mid-paced "The Duellists" and the instrumental "Losfer Words". Of the few albums that are considered to be "ahead of their time", Powerslave is definitely one of them. So if you like Iron Maiden at all, then you absolutely MUST own this disc.
