O álbum mais poderosa da primeira fase do Iron Maiden. Forte, rápido e brilhantemente executado!

I much prefer the first album, I only really like 'Wrathchild' on this one. 'Better' production is one of the problems but the main one is that most of these tracks are too fast. 'Prodigal Son' is the only track that does not sound like they are in a race, you've guessed it I am no fan of thrash metal either.

I like all of their phases, even the Blaze Bayley one (well, partly at least). Fierce, energetic, punk-like and imaginative. One of their best overally

Killers, is a massive improvement on the debut in my opinion. Better production, tighter songs(although there are more out and out Maiden classics on the first record) in, wrathchild, and, murders in the rue morgue. Classic metal.
