When I first lisened to Iron maiden I lisened to this album. I never herd Maiden or any hard rock/metal. This album is what got me interested in the music I enjoy today. The style of Iron Maiden is unique. Steve Harris (bass guitar) writes songs so that he plays bass and the guitars follow what he plays.

Lyrics could be worked on a bit. Children Of The Damned is a great song just way to descriptive lyrics, I'm not haing on descriptive lyrics I'm just saying when your describing pain for 4 sentences it starts to suck. Bruce Dickinson is a frikin beast. Bruce is one of the top vocalists of all time along with Sebastian Bach, and Ozzy Osbourne.
