    Easy top five for me. The rest will take some deliberation.

    Melissa or Show No Mercy are the clear winners.

    Anyone that doesn't consider Piece of Mind a clear winner should fuck off to the 90s.

    Anyone that thinks Kill 'em All is better than Show No Mercy should reevaluate their life.

    Piece of Mind is great, but not my favourite Maiden.

    Half of Show No Mercy is better than most of Kill Em All, but the weak songs are pretty gosh darn weak compared to KEA which is a paragon of consistency.

    Show No Mercy winning is the only correct outcome here.

    i think the in-crowd will push Crystal Logic to the top spot. I like the album a lot, but i dont think ill be giving any points to it just because of the ridiculous fact that it'll probably end up beating Show No Mercy, Kill Em All, etc. Which is truly sad imho.

    Holy Diver will be my #1 but I'll make my list when I get home.

    I kind of agree with Ozz on this one. KeA is a close 2nd and how can you deny its influence though. Hmmm
