No Prayer for the Dying | Fan Rating: 6.7 (Show All) | Review this album
The first thing to say about No Prayer For The Dying is the departure of Adrian Smith and his replacement with Janick Gers. It was sad to see Smith go, for both his playing skill and song-writing talent. However, the show must go on, and it does.

Dance of Death | Fan Rating: 5.4 (Show All) | Review this album
Dance of Death is probably the most controversial album of Iron Maiden so far, and this in several aspects. The first thing that can be noticed, like every time a new album is released, is the cover. This particular cover, realised by an unknown artist, ha...
