Perfect Strangers - 1984

The Top Ten

1 Perfect Strangers

Sometimes I think this is their best song. - Metal_Treasure

2 Knockin' At Your Back Door

One of the most unique intros of all time. - Metal_Treasure

3 Dead or Alive

Power metal as we know it. - Metal_Treasure

4 Hungry Daze

Musically, this song is very interesting, especially the riff you hear on the sample. Also, Ian Gillan employs shallow growls at the end. The whole song is heavily inspired by classical music which makes it sound exquisite. - Metal_Treasure

5 Under the Gun
6 Strangeways

This is a lengthy track (7:30). For me it's a metal song.
When I listen to it I realise that Bruce Dickinson was really influenced by Ian Gillan singing style very much, which Bruce claims (not by this song though). - Metal_Treasure

7 Mean Streak
8 Son of Alerik

This epic instrumental is a bonus track... - Metal_Treasure

9 Mad Dog
10 Mitzi Dupree

Mitzi Dupree makes me smile, vocals are so funny. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Call of the Wild
12 Not Responsible

Another very good bonus track - Metal_Treasure

13 The Spanish Archer
14 The Unwritten Law
15 Hard Lovin' Woman
