61No Prayer for the Dying
62Burning Ambition
63Face In the Sand
64Can I Play With Madness?
65Wasting Love

What an awesome ballad. The intro riff haunting.

66These Colours Don't Run

I was looking at the best Iron Maiden Songs this song almost didn't even get a percent, same with Prowler and The Reincarnation Of Benjamin Breeg. They should put these songs on there own album with The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner and Stranger in a strange land.

This is a good song, brings you in, and launches you out nice and amazed. I would give this song a 14/10, and I mean it.

67No More Lies
68The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg

One of Maiden's best songs after Bruce and Adrian's return! Still not the most popular one.. Come on people. Listen to this! This is classic maiden.. Slow start and then the bass, leads and vocals just explode!

Indeed, it beats arcadia any day! The most underrated Maiden song, in my opinion.

It's just a great song though the fans don't think that the song is great it beats acadia

Nothing like anything else on the album, people hear gangland and think the album is effectively over, then hear hallowed and forget everything else as its too good. But nested between the two is this really cool sounding song.

This song is amazing. Steve's only regret on The Beast was choosing Gangland over this showstopper. Wish it had made the cut for the early days tour. When Bruce comes down with "Gone are the days when man looked down" I get chills after all these years.

A gem that's forgotten because it's followed by one of Maiden's greatest songs.

Amazing song amazing guitar play amazing vocal play

Amazing soloes and a great unique sound, surprised that this so low.

72Brighter Than a Thousand Suns
73Don't Look to the Eyes of a Stranger

Haven't heard anyone say that they like this song; at least not yet. It's a little repetitive just like The Angel and the Gambler, but definitely not as much; making this one an easier listen than the aforementioned song. At least give this song a chance, guys. Its WAY better than The Angel and the Gambler, since it doesn't sound the same for almost 10 minutes.

Wow great song! Little repetitive but not more than The Angel and the Gambler. That's the worst maiden song ever.

Yeah this song is never talked about by anybody, shamefully underrated. Big time!


Don't know what it is but I love this song, Maiden's attempt at a Power Ballard, and I think they pulled it off!

75Die With Your Boots On

Proof that it's the most underrated: it's at 95 on this list.

76Ghost of the Navigator

Amazing song, hands down. Never hear anyone talk about this song, ever.

77Back In the Village
78The Mercenary
79The Clansman

The musical structure of this song is phenomenal. In my opinion, this song deserves a spot in the top 10 iron maiden songs of all time. It also tells an epic tale. - JonnyGordon

Yeah this is another Steve Harris masterpiece! Epics for the win!

Probably the most underrated maiden song ever it rocks!
