IRON MAIDEN / Piece Of Mind (1983)

Maiden's fourth album was also Nicko McBrain’s first; he added his drum skills to the existing line up, which was a line up that lasted for many years.  It’s a solid album with typical maiden-esque riffs and breaks but except for fan-favourite The Trooper there's few obvious stand-out moments.  It requires repeated listens before it begins to impact like the previous albums did.  Once it clicks, it sticks.

Songs of Note: The Trooper; Flight Of Icarus
