Buy it. Trust me.

From: Mr.Sands Date: June 11, 2003 at 6:55
Best and most original IM album so far. They never recovered the fresh strength shown here, and many of their classic E-C-D structures and 'gallop' rithms we have listened to through the years were inspired in the songs from Killers. Anyway, Up the Irons!

From: Zze Date: October 21, 2003 at 6:28
this was one of my first albums ever, I loved and still like it. Maiden sounded darker with Paul Dianno on the vocals. This is a good early heavy metal record

From: Fat Freddy Date: December 18, 2003 at 13:14
I'll still take Bruce over Di'Anno any day, but this is still a great CD. The bonus track 'Women In Uniform' remains a lost classic that should've been included in the original album's running order!

From: Metal-man Date: May 21, 2004 at 12:17
you want to hear classic metal? this is the album to buy. Know your roots bitch!!!

From: Metal T Date: June 10, 2004 at 14:37
Always thought Dianno' had alot more attitude than Dickinson'.Paul had more of a 'rip your throat out' kind of style if you will.Killers' is definitely classic metal.

From: Shannon Date: June 19, 2004 at 21:05
A 'KILLER' ALBUM! [HAHA, no pun intended!] Seriously, this is Paul DiAnno at his best and Steve Harris becoming a genius at songwriting. Buy it or die loser!!! <<>>

From: Big Papa K Date: July 1, 2004 at 17:37
Another excellent album from the Di'Anno era. This one is more of the Iron Maiden classic sound than the debut except for the punkish opener 'Wrathchild', one of the bands best songs. 8/10

From: Richierocker Date: July 5, 2004 at 15:00
Easily my favorite Maiden album by far. Its heavy, raw, and in your face. Murders in the rue morgue, invaders, wratchild, just to name a few good tunes on this one, all of them are great. Dianno shines big time on this album! Does anyone know why he left Miaden? was he kicked out, or did he leave?

From: Whop. Date: July 12, 2004 at 6:53
Hey'Richierocker',(persons comment above mine)you are telling me you have this album with the song'Invaders'on it?Wow man..what a fan!You must be the only person in the world with this song on the album.

From: Richierocker Date: July 12, 2004 at 19:35
OOOPs! my mistake thank you for the correction WHOP. Wratchild and Murders in the rue morgue are defiantly my favorites on this one, and yes I messed up Invaders is on the next album. LOL.

From: Blayde Date: December 21, 2004 at 3:17
Maiden's most underrated album. Easily their best. BUY IT NOW!

From: EDDIE Date: February 4, 2005 at 8:08
I bought it not knowing much the songs on this one. I just thought that Wrathchild and Killers were gonna be the only good songs here and the rest just pure boredom. But man, I was wrong! All the songs here are good enough to catch my attention and I was holding still listening! Paul really have a "heavier" voice than Bruce. But I prefer Bruce over Paul (very close between the two, not saying that Paul is bad). Great album...

From: Painkiller Date: June 9, 2005 at 18:35
Killers and Ghengis Khan are true rock athems. This is Iron Maiden's best album. All the songs are killers, hence, the album's name.

From: Date: July 26, 2005 at 0:41
One of the most classic album covers of all time. I remember scetching this for a Jr. High School Art class project....

From: Alice Date: September 10, 2005 at 13:34
At it's time this was the hardest album ever (maybe with the exception of some Motorhead albums). When Thrash was still to come, there were KILLERS. Still sound fresh. 10/10

From: pie75 Date: September 5, 2010 at 3:14
dianno's swan song sadly he'd become nothing more then a club singer afterwards but this is a great album he's albums with maiden are classics great intro with ides of march and also love wrathchild,murders in the rue morgue,gangus khahn and killers a fine album indeed

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 9, 2016 at 18:47
Even though there are certain songs off the self-titled debut that I absolutely love, Killers is my favorite of the two DiAnno-led Iron Maiden releases. The main thing, the production is beefier, always a good thing. The songwriting seems just that much tighter and more focused as well, but is still consistent with the debut so the two can be enjoyed together. My favorites are everybody's favorites: "Wrathchild," "Murders In the Rue Morgue" and the title track. Everything is great, but this is one case where the best-known songs really are the highlights.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: November 8, 2017 at 17:40
For me this release is less consistent than the band's debut but still manages to catch the attention as it has many good songs in it such as tracks 2,3,6,7,9 & 10...Paul DiAnno was "the man" in here and he was giving the band that "punky touch" with his voice.83/100
