BNW was pretty much my introduction to Maiden. I was visiting my friend, maybe a year after BNW had come out. I don't remember all that well.. But he had a copy of Rock in Rio, which had quite a few songs from BNW in the setlist. We had that cd on repeat the entire afternoon, and i remember thinking that this is the best rock band i have ever listened to! :biggrin:

Somewhat similar to me.  My first IM CD was Edward the Great, a greatist hits compilation where the last two tracks were The Wickerman and Fear of the Dark live at RiR.  So knowing those two last songs, I ended up getting the RiR album and that was really the first true IM experience.  I had known the hit songs from Edward the Great, but most of the other tracks were from BNW which was all new to me.  Songs like Dream of Mirrors just blew me.  Compared to the rest of the songs I had known (80s classics), this seemed like a totally different band than I had just started to learn.  The title track, Blood Brothers, Ghost of the Navigator.  I was sold immediately.  I usually point to Fear of the Dark from RiR as what really made me a fan of the band, but when I think about it, I could say that it was the BNW songs in that RiR set that really made me notice how amazing the band really was.  I didn't know about the history, I had no idea this was a reunion album.  I just knew they had these older tunes that were awesome and catchy, yet also had these newer songs that were heavy and progressive and still awesome and catchy. 

BNW may not be my favorite IM album, but I do think it sounds the best.  I really love the production of the album.  It sounds so crisp and clear and feels perfect for the songs.  I have a flag of the album cover hanging in my basement.  I've always loved the look of Brave New London with Eddie in the clouds looking down.   :metal

As a kid I loved Astronauts and Dinosaurs.  Weird combo but you know some jackass will make a movie out of this idea.

LOVE Brave New World. So many good songs. Also, probably my favorite Maiden album cover.

I agree that thereís gotta be worse songs than these, but of this list I went with Starship.

My gut reaction was Cherry Pie, because although it has a cool guitar riff, I despise that song. But itís technically from the 90s.
