Iron Maiden released “Piece of Mind” in 1983 and the big change this time was a new drummer. Nicko McBrian replaced Clive Burr and although I personally liked Burr better, McBrian is still pretty excellent. Bruce Dickinson of course returns and is as excellent as ever. Adrian Smith and Dave Murray do the epic dual solos. Finally Steve Harris has some of the best bass work in metal! There are many Maiden favorites found here like “The Trooper” being the most famous song on this album and one of the best Iron Maiden songs ever! There’s also the epic 7-minute long “To Tame a Land”. “Die With Your Boots” on is another awesome track as is the classic “Where Eagles Dare”. This might come second to “The Number of the Beast” which is still my favorite Maiden album. Awesome work!
