Tailgunner,Bring your Daughter and Holy Smoke. Hell this whole album is fucking awsome as it should be because it is Iron Maiden.

From: nikkiray$immon$ Date: May 18, 2002 at 20:25
A 'Good' disc by the mighty Iron Maiden. I find this one to be a little cheesey though. Like Bring your Daughter... The song is weak, all chorus, almost makes you hate the damn thing by the end of the song. Tailgunner to me came off as a second rate ACES HIGH, Holy Smoke is a great track as is No Prayer...& Hooks in You, which is my favorite track on this one. I would have to rate this one a 7.5, a mixed bag by Maiden is still better than any other band, wait we haven't reviewed 'Fear' yet.

de puta madre!

Not very good.

From: tailgunner Date: July 1, 2003 at 11:47
can't believe you don't like this album, it's great, especially tailgunner, bring your daughter to the slaughter and holy smoke, but also run silent run deep and hooks in you.

From: Zze Date: October 21, 2003 at 6:53
a bit better than Seventh Son still not a classic as many of their past CDs

From: Fat Freddy Date: December 18, 2003 at 13:15
Tailgunner is basically 'Aces High Part II', isn't it? Not one of the better Maiden albums, but still preferable to anything with Blaze Bayley on vocals...

From: alice_in_chainz Date: June 4, 2004 at 11:58
why doesn't anyone like Mother Russia? how can u say bring your daughter is cheesy?:@ every maiden song is a style

From: Shannon Date: June 19, 2004 at 19:58
All-in-all, an 'above-average' album from Maiden, but I think it sounds like it was 'rushed.' B

From: Big Papa K Date: July 1, 2004 at 17:47
This is their worst album up to this point. They have dropped the keyboards, but they have also dropped the catchy melodies from the past. The riffs are not as memorable either. Some of their worst songs ever in 'Bring Your Daughter to The Slaughter' and 'Public Enema Number 1'. 4/10

From: jack Date: August 16, 2004 at 6:49
This is what makes iron maiden a great band(one of the greatest metal band in history). They realize album so consistently once or twice a year,from their debut album to dance of death. This album reminds me of priest's painkiller,so heavy,dropping all the keyboards etc. No wonder maiden is a living legend. 80's metal rules!

From: Sammy Date: August 16, 2004 at 14:57
No Adrian Smith - no heart. Dickinson mails this one in, as he does on Fear of the Dark. Most great bands have 7 good albums. This is Maiden's 8th and it is truly weak by their lofty standards.

From: Luis Duarte Date: September 15, 2005 at 18:33
Sammy i totaly agree with you.Maiden is my favourite band , but after 7th SOn i thought they would make the best albun ever or go down the hill , and without smith down the hill it was...and maiden would never be the same again after this one.

From: pie75 Date: September 5, 2010 at 4:54
i think this album is very underated it's maiden getting back to basics adrian smith leaving did hurt but jannick gers is a great player too otherwise when bruce and adrian came back why would they not get rid of gers sure theor golden period was over and though not as good as seventh son it is more honest tailgunner is aces high 2(good song 2) this album has plenty of good songs holy smoke,no prayer,the assasin,run silent,run deep,hooks in you muther russia and regardless what anyone says bring your daughter to the slaughter was a good song 2

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 7, 2014 at 22:57
The one before the last album recorded before Bruce hit the road out of the band(some years later he returned)..."Tailgunner","Holy Smoke","No Prayer For The Dying","Fates Warning","Hooks On You" & "Bring Your Daughter...To The Slaughter" are the ones for me...it could have been a more consistent record but was and is still acceptable for Iron Maiden fans...86/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: June 8, 2014 at 19:09
Maiden were huge in '85, but by 1990, in a world where Guns n' Roses and Metallica were the reigning kings of metal, Steve Harris and the lads were in danger of becoming obsolete. Two albums that pissed many fans off with their use of keyboards, and now came No Prayer For The Dying. The keys are scaled down again, but there's just a general lack of any new ideas that consigns the album to the lower end of the Maiden catalog. After headlining arenas just a couple years before, the band were band weere playing clubs on this tour. Big clubs, to be sure, but the the reversal was hard to deny, and the videos for this album didn't see any airplay outside of Headbanger's Ball (and even then you were just as likely to see an oldie-but-goodie like "The Trooper" as you were "Holy Smoke").
