One of the weaker Maiden albums of the 80's in my opinion, although it's got a very unique feel/production to it (at least guitar-wise). The power chords don't feel necessarily heavy or even loud, but very bass-y and deep. I love that aspect of it. It opens with its best track ("Where Eagles Dare"), with some phenomenal drumming by newcomer Nicko Mcbrain (a great personality for the band). Some other very notable cuts for me would be the catchy and unique "Die With Your Boots on", "Still Life", "Revelations", and the very popular "The Trooper". Aside from that, you have "To Tame a Land", which is the very interesting closing track in that it's not a particularly easy to love track, but I certainly see myself loving it after many listens. "Flight of Icarus" is a good track, but I'm not too fond of the chorus. Lastly, I'm not a huge fan of "Sun and Steel" and "Quest for Fire". Perhaps they'll grow on me, but, despite this album's songwriting imperfections, it's one of their best feeling albums in my opinion, and most of the tracks are definitely worth buying the entire album for.

To be honest: It's hard to come up with a new Album after a masterpiece like "Number Of The Beast". The follow up must be dissapointing! And it was... But nevertehless it's a f***ing great Album. The Singles "Flight Of Icarus" and "The Trooper" rule! "Still Life" and "Dune - To Tame A Land" are outstanding tracks although they never were really discovered by the common Maiden-Fan. Do you need one more argumet? "Revelations"! What an amazing - a bit doomy - song! It took me almost 20 years to get into it. I never liked it, when it was played life, but at the end... I was hooked. Too late to enjoy it's live performance :-(

Well well. Who'd have thought maiden had made albums this good. Damn, surprised myself with this one. I don't even see the tapering off that a few have mentioned. Wonderful proggy rhythms, that great Lizzy style dual lead and the harmony vocal. Never a dull moment. Got to be a equal of the Metallica debut, same year.

Segundo disco con Bruce Dickinson pero primero sin el batería Clive Burr, que abandonaba la banda siendo sustituido por Nicko McBrain. El estilo del nuevo batería marcaría el sonido de este álbum y de Iron Maiden en general, quizás más técnico que Clive Burr, la percusión en 'Piece of mind' tiene un gran nivel y por supuesto ayuda a elevar la complejidad en las composiciones. Ya no queda nada de la primera época con Paul Di'Anno a las voces y el sonido macarra da paso a un Heavy Metal de elevada técnica y con los primeros toques progresivos que luego explotarían a la perfección los liderados por Steve Harris. Un disco injustamente valorado por la crítica especializada, pues nos encontramos con una de las grandes joyas de la historia del Metal, puede que inferior a otros discos de Iron Maiden, pero aún así destaca por su calidad.

From Fischman
For my money, this is Maiden's best. While side two has some weaker material, the highs are so high, and frequent enough to elevate this to the top spot. 'The Trooper' is the quintessential Maiden classic, but I find 'Where Eagles Dare' to be the greatest accomplishment on the album, and 'Flight of Icarus' reaches similar heights.

Terrific side 1, as mentioned on a previous comment it is fades towards the end of the album, a great introduction to then new drummer Nicko McBrain 'Where Eagles Dare' other top tracks 'Revelations' & 'The Trooper'.

Iron Maiden's second album with Bruce Dickinson, piece of mind, is a slicker LP. Side one is excellent, featuring some of Maiden's most memorable songs including, revelations, flight of Icarus, and, die with your boots on. After, the trooper, on side two, the album slips into filler material, it's still ok, just not as good as the earlier tracks. Maybe it would have been better to spread the quality songs around a bit so the second half of the record wouldn't be so inconsistent. Having said that, it's still enjoyable and silly fun, and that's all you want from Maiden. Good album.
