Killers



Recorded at Battery Studios, London, Nov '80-Jan '81
Released 2 Feb 1981
Produced by Martin Birch

Paul Di'Anno – vocals
Dave Murray – guitar
Adrian Smith – guitar
Steve Harris – bass guitar
Clive Burr – drums

Tunes

The Ides of March
Wrathchild
Murders in the Rue Morgue
Another Life
Genghis Khan
Innocent Exile
Killers
Prodigal Son
Purgatory
Twilight Zone
Drifters

This album is pure magic. Bringing Adrian Smith and Birch on board made for a sharp, detailed, and thrilling ride from start to finish. As much as I love the debut, this is just a little more satisfying for my ears. I always thought that this was Clive's best work as well.

I have to go with the title track, one of my favorite Maiden numbers--Paul's YEAH's during the intro alone are worth the price of admission. Second and third place go to Wrathchild and Twilight Zone, respectively.

NOTE: This is the US version of the album, which added Twilight Zone.

Hard to pick, but went the the title track. That bass line haunted me when i was a kid. The song sounded like someone was coming after me. Great album, again hard to pick.

Killers never did as much for me as it does for most fans and I actually prefer the debut overall. I went with Murders in the Rue Morgue, but could've easily gone with Wrathchild or the title track.

I like the changing atmosphere on Purgatory. From raw NWOBM sound to a more somber one and back. Nice verses, and lyrics. A little different from what Maiden has done.

Went with the title track.

At one point in my life, I proclaimed Killers to be my all-time favorite album. Now I'm not as big on it and actually prefer their debut.

I always felt this album was a bit of a letdown compared to what came before it and after it. It's still pretty good but just can't compare. That said I think I'll go with Wrathchild.

I agree with this. It's my least favorite of their 80s albums.

I think I enjoy the debut more, even though this album slays as well. Murders in the Rue Morgue gets my vote, with Purgatory and Wrathchild being my other potential choices.

Killers by a long shot, and that's saying something because this is in my Maiden Top-3 for albums. Killers, Number of the Beast and Piece of Mind is one of the greatest three album stretches in heavy metal history, in my opinion.

Definitely the title track, followed by "Wrathchild" and then "Another Life".

Love the whole thing but voted Purgatory.

Didn't want to vote for a softer song on two albums in a row but damn Prodigal Son is a great track!

First two lp's suck, so this is irrelevant...

^^I would hope you mean irrelevant to you and not the board/topic entirely.

Regardless, can't help but find that opinion to be most odd.
