84 lineup1984
Powerslave represents the essence of Iron Maiden at the pinnacle of their "golden age", and is the first album without any lineup changes in the band. No other album so clearly captures the spirit of power, fantasy, and emotion. The album cover is in my opinion the best of all the Maiden albums, and perfectly sets the mood of power and mystery. The songs are for the most part superb, with four of them becoming timeless Maiden classics.
