I love old school Metallica, but their new stuff just doesn't hold up. Therefore, I'm choosing Iron Maiden. Iron Maiden haven't truly commercialized or sold out. They've also made MANY more good albums than Metallica. Both had great albums during the 80s. The difference is that Metallica had 4 and Iron Maiden had 7. Also, I would only rate the first two Metallica albums as highly as I would rate any of Maiden's albums from the 80s.
Help me add to my CD album shelf. What are your five favorite albums of all time?An album is a compilation of several song recordings, rather than single MP3-4-5 files that you can buy individually on Itunes.
