    The album has grown on me.

    On a road trip to Shenandoah Nat'l Park the weekend before last, I actually wanted to listen to the album. This is the first time since Brave New World that I've actually wanted to listen to a new Iron Maiden album a month after it's been out.
    Iron Maiden is almost a totally different band in the new millenium. I still prefer the shorter, punkier songs from the early days, but the new stuff is pretty damn good when judged on its own.

    The Di'anno era stuff was a bit punky for me, they are both in my mp3 player and get into rotation, but not anywhere near as often as all the others. Well, with one exception, I do prefer Killers over No Prayer for the Dying. I think I prefer Bruce over Di'Anno simply because I was exposed to Bruce (Piece of Mind LP) first, so for me he was the voice of Maiden.

    I've heard this comment a number of times and can't seem to get it. I don't hear anything on those first couple albums that reminds me of anything I've heard from any punk bands. I mean, I know the songs are typically shorter and the production quality is a bit raw but that's where the similarities end for me. I just hear them as early metal... and yeah, I get that early metal took some of it's aggression from punk but I just mean the flavour of the songs, the chord structures, the melodies, lyrical content... none of it seems punk to me. Maybe I just have heavy metal blinders on :cool:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Well, it certainly isn't anything as song/chord structure. I have read the same thing many times so I guess I was influenced by that fact. It is more the "vibe" of the songs, they just feel punk to me and it is all due to Di'anno's voice and singing style, which I really don't like much. You certainly wouldn't find an epic instrumental like Gehngis Kahn on any punk album. In retrospect maybe I should have said " I prefer Maiden with Bruce because I think Di'anno has a horrible voice." :D

    Hahaha... fair enough. I like his voice a lot but I'm a Neil Young fan too so go figure :lol:
