Piece of Mind



Recorded at Compass Point Studios, Nassau, Bahamas, Jan-Mar 1983
Released 16 May 1983
Produced by Martin Birch

Tunes

Where Eagles Dare
Revelations
Flight of Icarus
Die With Your Boots On
The Trooper
Still Life
Quest for Fire
Sun and Steel
To Tame A Land

Another quality release, and a staple of my childhood. I'm curious to see if Trooper makes the cut here, but who can't forget that creepy video of Icarus (THOSE EYES)? Nevertheless, I'm going with To Tame A Land. Yeah, part of me is a Dune fanboy so that's part of it, but I've always found it to be a magnificent song that shifts through its various movements just as well as Hallowed did.

Going with Revelations just over Flight of Icarus. Die with Your Boots on and Sun and Steel are underrated cuts.

I tend to listen to the other 80s Dickinson albums more than this one but this was the first Maiden I ever bought.

My favorite Bruce album by some distance. Went with Flight of Icarus, but the whole thing smokes.

Revelations for me, though I really could've went with pretty much any song. I even dig Quest for Fire. My back up pick probably would've been Where Eagles Dare or To Tame a Land.

Piece of Mind is a masterpiece (of mind).

Now this is a hard one. The only song I just never could get into was To Tame A Land. No idea why, it just never clicked with me. I'm going with Flight Of Icarus ,followed closely by the Trooper And Die With Your Boots On.

"Die With Your Boots On"

Have fond memories of this tour... Fastway, Saxon & Maiden. My friend Virgil's older brother Warren worked for Maiden and we got backstage. I got to play Nicko's drums for the sound check. I used to have a lot of cool Maiden stuff, it got stolen first.

The Trooper!!!!


When I was a kid, I recorded the intro to "Still Life" on cassette, cut the tape, turned it around and taped it back together so I could listen to it forward. Forgot what it was or if I could understand it, but I was disappointed.

My dad saw that tour and his stories of it have always made me jealous as hell, haha. I wish I could've been able to see Maiden live in their prime like that, especially with such awesome supporting acts.

My favorite Maiden album, my first Maiden album. I love every song. I went with Where Eagles Dare, first Maiden song I mastered on guitar (album solo too.)

I voted for To Tame a Land, although Revelations is a very close second.

This is my all time fave Maiden of the four eras of the band. I chose "Revelations" because it's my fave IM song and one I would play if someone asked me the question "what is Heavy Metal?"

Me too, although just my favorite Maiden album not by any band. Revelations for me as well. Excellent album! Quest For Fire is one that I would skip if I had to pick a track to throw away.

Great album! It's the completion of the greatest 3-Album stretch in metal history. I voted for "The Trooper" but the whole album is just wildly fantastic.

Flight of Icarus, but I could of gone with The Trooper or Where Eagles Dare. The whole album is killer, so picking is a coin toss.
