Better than Number of the Beast for sure. The last cut is one of my favorite metal tracks I've heard so far. But honestly, I could have just listened to that track four times in a row, and I would have gotten more out of it than one listen through this album.

Somehow they've managed to make one of the most well assembled metal albums of the 80's and probably of all time. The killer opener "Aces High" and the vast imagery of the albums closer "Rime of The Ancient Mariner" stand out as two of the bands most memorable songs (of course there are others but these are two of my favorites). This is their magnum opus, like it or not.

"The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" is bloody brilliant. The rest of the album is awesome too, but seriously, that closer has got to be one of the greatest metal songs of all time.

Fav Tunes:
1.) The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
2.) Powerslave
3.) Aces High
