Best Songs On Iron Maiden's The X Factor


The Top Ten

1 Sign of the Cross

Sadly, the Blaze Bayley era will be more or less scrutinized by Maiden fans. Some like it, some don't. I think that Blaze gave important contributions, perhaps the best, this song. It is a true epic in every aspect. What an excellent way to introduce us this release, in my opinion one of the best Maiden has ever done. - denglongfist

A shame the rest of the album didn't live up to it. I still like The X Factor though.

One of the best Maiden songs EVER, blows me away every time I listen to it.

Love it blaze bayley baybeee

4 The Edge of Darkness

Holy cow this one is too low. It's my second favorite, behind Sign of the Cross, but I voted for it because Sign of the Cross isn't going anywhere, it will always be there. I want this higher!

5 The Aftermath

In the mud and rain
What are we fighting for
Is it worth the pain
Is it worth dying for
Who will take the blame
Why did they make a war
Questions that come again
Why are we fighting at all - great lyrics

This song is epic but sign of the cross is legendary

6 Fortunes of War

The best song from blaze bayley creepy and beautiful intro then hard metal to the end.

Fortunes of war
Fortunes of war
Fortunes of war
No pain anymore
Fortunes of waar

7 Judgement of Heaven

Probably the most underrated song ever by maiden. Gives me a good feeling every time I listen to it.

8 The Unbeliever
9 2 A.M.
10 Blood on the World's Hands
