rock baby as hell

I've had this CD forever and I just found a place to premote it. Not like anyone will ever read this but oh well. If you have some of Iron Maiden's newer stuff and want to hear their older stuff then this is their best! A CD that truly defined metal for all bands that followed!

From: The Fizzy One Date: November 11, 2002 at 21:23
There are some things that you get from Maidnn's first two albums that they just don't do after that, which is a shame. THis is fun, loud, hard, yet thoughtful and intelligent and all those other good things Maiden would become (except fun, which is something maybe they forgot a little about). Paul also doesn't do many of the annoying vocalisms that Bruce does, which is a treat. The Fizz Picks: "Prowler," "Iron Maiden"Phantom of the Opera" and of course, the top spot goes to "Runnin' Freeeeeee!"

From: Deadless X Date: May 27, 2003 at 15:34
This band couldn't of become what it is today without this. The advancingely sounded Prowler and the dynamic hit Running Free surely contributed to it. You don't even see the band playing like this anymore so this is one of Maiden's best.

From: Schmieckie Date: June 29, 2003 at 7:41
Very raw compared to their later work, and Paul Dianno is an interesting vocalist, if not quite as talented as Bruce D. On the whole, however, this record is an amazing debut from one of the greatest metal bands of all time. Very little fluff to be found, with at least five songs here qualifying as classics. Phantom of the Opera hints at future epic brilliance, while Running Free is cheesy cock-rock posturing, and both styles fit. I wish I had something to do with this album.

From: mrs. Harris Date: October 13, 2003 at 11:45
Really fucking GOOD album and really fucking GREAT band!!! The best songs: Running Free, Strange World, Phantom Of The Opera...

From: Twitch Date: April 29, 2004 at 2:12
Picked this up when I was 13 for 25 cents (+Sabbath's Live Evil for 50) off a junkie at a swap meet in '83! Classic LP!

From: metal-man Date: May 21, 2004 at 12:14
No denying these guys are a true metal band. If you dissagree go fuck yourself cause you dont know music...

From: Shannon Date: June 19, 2004 at 21:15
This is were it all began... I really like this Maiden album, although a little "primitive" sounding, it is still a really good record. I remember buying the cassette when I was like 14. Now I have the 'enhanced' version of the CD and it sound greater than ever!!

From: Big Papa K Date: July 1, 2004 at 17:35
Ahhh, where it all began. This album is more of a mix of metal and punk than their later albums. Di'Anno's voice is great for such tracks as "Prowler", "Sanctuary", and "Remember Tomorrow". Strong debut. 9/10

From: Richierocker Date: July 5, 2004 at 0:16
The first time I listened to tthis album I wasnt to thrilled. I put it on again after a few months and now I like it better. Its raw and innocent to some degree, but man songs Like tansylvania, prowler and running free just to name a few are great.

From: Cereal Killer Date: July 25, 2004 at 13:51
A Classic CD for all time.

From: Papa Knows Date: January 19, 2005 at 16:52
Di´Anno is my idol, I love him and this album. My Iron favorite and 1 of my 5 favorites!

From: Painkiller Date: June 9, 2005 at 18:31
This album is awesome. Dickinson's voice will never compare to Di'anno. This album contains Phantom of the Opera, the best song Iron Maiden ever did. Prowler, Running Free, Transylvania, Sanctuary, and Another life are to awesome to put into words.

que decir de este discazo, cambio mi percepción de la música cuando lo escuché por vez primera un par de años mas tarde de su edición. que años ehh, que disco!! como dicen NWoBHM forever!! para que nombrar todos estos clasicazos de temas.. TODOS son esenciales, tanto Paul DiAnno como Bruce Dickinson cayeron a pelo a esta INOLVIDABLE banda. 9.8/10

From: pie75 Date: September 5, 2010 at 3:05
one of the great debut albums they sounded young and fresh paul dianno is a good singer nowhere near as good as bruce dickinson but good all the same songs like running free,phantom of the opera,sanctuary,charlot the harlot and iron maiden are now metal classics

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: June 8, 2014 at 18:23
Here's Maiden at their their scrappiest, dirtiest and most raw. Such humble beginnings, but already, you can hear traces of the band's later big ideas in songs like "Phantom Of The Opera" and "Remember Tomorrow." Still, songs like "Prowler" (made to be played LOUD!), the bass-thumping "Running Free," the punky "Sanctuary" (the band's first single, I believe), and "Iron Maiden" just plain ROCK, first and fforemost, albeit in a way that must have seemed wild and new in 1980. Paul DiAnno's voice is gruff and not overly tuneful, but it ssuits the band's music at this point. Production isn't great, but again, consider the year, and the band's status as unknowns, and what'd you expect? There are folks who love the first two album, and pretty much thing the rest sucks (they're a minority but they do exist, and Paul DiAnno himself is their club president).

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 8, 2016 at 11:38
Classic debut that i own on vinyl since it came out...Paul DiAnno back then was a good frontman with a very particular way of singing(a mix of Punk and Metal)..."Remember Tomorrow" is my all time fave song in here...tracks 3,4,7 & 9 are also some very attractive ones that along with my fave one have become classic and essential at almost any Iron Maiden gig...88/100

From: hair metal again Date: December 8, 2022 at 16:08
IRON MAIDEN s debut is an alltime classic of the scene with a raw ,street heavy metal sound ,great solos and excellent songwriting!all the songs stand out and of course the artwork is unique
