I give too many 100s, but holy shit I love this album despite it not being 100% perfect. Maybe a 99...
Aces High, Two Minutes to Midnight, Flash of the Blade, Powerslave, and Rime of the Ancient Mariner are spectacular tracks, and the other three are pretty good yet just aren't on the same level. If people can give Sgt. Pepper a 100 with crap like When I'm Sixty For on in then I can give this a 100.

I diagree with others that this album has lots of filler. This is far and away my favorite Maiden album, and the "filler" tracks, like Back in the Village, are some of my favorites on the record.

Too complex for me to rate, but I have to give it a 95 to help it out.

Interesting lyrics but the instrumentals feel a little one-sided.

La gira que acompañó a la salida de este esencial 'Powerslave', llevó a Iron Maiden a realizar casi 200 conciertos alrededor de todo el mundo, no era para menos. Si hemos mencionado a 'The number of the beast' como una de las grandes obras maestras del género, este disco que ahora nos ocupa no se queda atrás, con esa portada majestuosa inspirada en el Antiguo Egipto y con esos riffs afilados como cuchillas que nos transportan precisamente a la edad de los faraones, un símil perfecto para comparar lo que consiguieron Iron Maiden con este álbum de leyenda, y es que con 'Powerslave' terminó de cimentar su leyenda dentro del Heavy Metal más clásico y tradicional. No hay ningún corte prescindible en todo el disco, perfecto de principio a fin desde la veloz "Aces high" hasta "The rime of the ancient mariner", basada en un poema de Samuel Taylor Coleridge.

Not a fan of metal, but this one has amazing bass work and ambitious songwriting. The best album from Iron Maiden, and the ranking it´s just because I don´t like metal, so I won´t be hearing this that often.

I think I fall squarely into the first two songs, last two song are classics group. Losfer words is ok. I think Dickinson over-sings sometimes, which really makes weakers songs a chore. That's why they are such a great band to make compilation albums from, you can discard the filler tracks.

A classic. One of the greatest metal albums of all time. Not sure which I like more, this or Number of the Beast. I think the weaker songs on this album are better than the weaker ones on beast, but the best songs off beast are better than the best songs on this one.
