Love the more aggressive sound they had with Di'anno, and wish they did a few more albums with him. However, I could hardly imagine him singing Powerslave. In the end, though, this punk-y sounding record is a blast.

I wonder if the album would be so primitive and raw, if Bruce was on vocals? The album that made me love heavy metal.

Ainda "sujo" com o punk o Iron Maiden mostra o peso de estreia de uma das maiores bandas de rock da Inglaterra/Mundo! Coletânea de hinos do metal!

Really good debut! Sounds like punkish metal, still not the famous Maiden sound
Top track: Prowler
High: Phantom of the Opera, Remember Tomorrow

From Ben4
This album is awesome. Although I like the music they put out with Bruce more, Paul is probably the better singer of the two. There's a bit more of a classic rock feel on this album than on their other albums (Sanctuary, Running Free). The best song on this album is hands down Phantom of the Opera, which is up there with Hallowed be thy Name as the best Iron Maiden song.

One of the best debuts ever. Still only a glimpse at what was to come.
