(Mars Attacks Radio) The latest installment of Mars Attacks Classic Albums Column focuses on Iron Maiden's Powerslave. As has become customary for the albums column, the post is split into written comments and audio comments that have been submitted regarding the album.

Some of the written comments come from members of Megadeth, In This Moment, Death Angel, White Wizzard, Gorgoroth, Gypsyhawk, among others. Here are some comments you'll find posted regarding the album:

David Ellefson - Number of the Beast was the last Maiden album I bought as for me it was the essence of the 'best of the best' of Maiden. However, some albums get better to me over time and one of those is Powerslave. It had a great album cover and the title track is just a classic. Plus, Aces High and Two Minutes To Midnight are like metal standards in every rock bar around the planet. 'Up The Irons' for Maiden on this one!!

Chris Howorth - F**king love this album, the artwork is epic (used to get stoned and try finding all the eddies or little creatures hiding throughout the artwork) I also took this album into my 8th grade history class taking advantage of the subject matter as an excuse to play rhyme of the ancient mariner during class, haha my favorite songs are Aces High, Powerslave and of course 2 Minutes To Midnight, this is easily my all-time favorite album from Iron Maiden!

Steve Smyth - One of my alltimes favorite albums, next to Somewhere in Time. I learned this whole album by ear as soon as I heard the first notes of Aces High! Every songs is a favorite here, and the band is on fire throughout, great performances from everyone on this. Only wish I could have seen the tour!

Patrick Kennison - My first concert ever. WASP opened. My 11 year old mind was blown. I wore the 3/4 WASP jersey from the show til it literally became a rag. Many concerts after that one couldn't touch it. I still have the ticket stub today. Powerslave is my 2nd fav Maiden album after NOTB. The concept & lyrics were like metal history to me.

The podcast portion of the column contains comments from Jon Schaffer, Gene Hoglan, Richard Christy, Brian Tichy, Glen Drover, Alan Tecchio, author Martin Popoff, Mark Strigl, and several others. Check out the episode here.
