Top Ten Underrated Album Openers
The riff and the intro scream are the best things for me. - Metal_Treasure
Great opener. Like what HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345 said about GBH, I think Metalheads may like Poison Idea. - THC13
Most Iron Maiden fans will agree that 'No Prayer For the Dying' is not one of the bands better albums. That being said though, I do have a soft spot for the opening track 'Tailgunner'. It kinda gives me vibes of 'Aces High', being a song that makes me think of aerial combat, the song has a catchy chugging rhythm to it, and those revving guitar riffs in the middle all make this a satisfying Iron Maiden song.
One of my favorites
Uneven album but this is a good kick-off. - truckturner
One of the most beautifully underrated Pink Floyd songs ever.
The opening song of their debut album, it may well be their best. The opening YYZ intro, the clean bassline, the crazy playing, the rebellious lyrics, the surprising mood chages (from frantic to calm, then back to frantic), and the overal energy. A must-listen if you haven't heard of Primus (or even if you have). - JoLeKosovo
