Listen, you f***ers, Paul Di'Anno kicked f***ing ass and if you really need convincing then try Murders in the Rue Morgue, Another Life and the title track from this, Maiden's best album. No vocal histrionics, just balls out, from the heart, metal / punk snarling. It's obvious that here was a young metal band who weren't scared of sounding how they wanted to sound, melding metal bombast with a punk rock attitude that marked them out as head and shoulders above the NWOBHM pack. Do you really think there would have been a Number of the Beast or Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (yawn) if this and the debut album had never been released? No, thought not.
