Today has played host to a Maiden bender; this album arguably being the highlight:


Up the Irons! :becool:

Now you're talking. I've had this in my head all day

And now you've mentioned 7th Son this has replaced it

Incidentally, this is the album that introduced me to Iron Maiden.
Nice ^_^

Number of the Beast was my first; bought for me as a kid by my good Christian nan :tongue:

I'm most familiar with the above, Seventh Son and Powerslave.. I missed the rest first time around but have been getting into other stuff from the same era; with Piece of Mind and Somewhere in Time being explored at the moment and I'm also liking Brave New World; I don't mind a lot of the stuff from the alternative lineups but IMO the classic Smith / Dickinson era(s) are the definitive Iron Maiden.

As I've got older I've really come to appreciate Dickinson's storytelling and interest historical / mythical themes - Maiden are a true national treasure :becool:

I have become somewhat obsessed with a band I used to listen to at university (some 30-ish years ago now). I’m now listening to their music whenever I get some time alone (in the car, in the bath etc). They weren’t prolific but really made an impression on me back then. I saw them play at our students’ union.

The band is River City People, their biggest hit was a cover of California Dreamin’. I was always a sucker for a strong female lead singer. I was amazed that, having rediscovered the album, when I listened to it after decades away I could still sing along to nearly every track and hit the percussion highlights.

Undercurrents, by Hammock. Last year, they decided to release an album, 1 track per month, and the track lengths average 20 minutes. So this album is 4 hours long! :eek: Hammock (in my opinion, anyway) were up to their usual high standard in this album, so it's a very pleasant 4 hours of music listening. :music:

Mimi Page has produced film soundtracks, normal albums, and even computer game soundtracks, and these 2 tracks are from one of the last: Ancient Frontier.

A very under-rated album IMO. Finished in a hurry to get ready for a tour, that was arranged too early, and Larry Mullen, the drummer, was out of action for most of the recording due to a back operation.
