For my money, Screaming will get my vote 100 times out of 100. Outstanding album from the first note to the last and an absolute staple in any serious metal or hard rock fan's catalog.

That's not to say that NotB isn't any good, it's fantastic and probably my favorite IM album, but it doesn't hold up to SFV in my ears.

I remember being on line to see Maiden play at the NY Palladium when some kid was showing off his advanced copy of Screaming one month before release. He bragged it would altar the metal landscape.

We were honed in on Maiden at that time and kinda laughed at him. He was right.

True story...

In South Florida they have a recording studio that used to take in any and all forms of talent that wanted to record. They were being graded on their output and needed bands to fill the space. One of my first bands were in there recording and between takes we were going outside to catch a breath of fresh air, a smoke and a drink when we heard that unmistakable voice a few studios over from us. I knew right then and there who it was. They were mixing this album there. I'll NEVER forget hearing that scream on the opening track...by itself.

What album are you referring to? I'm fairly certain that almost every single album that JP recorded in the 80's was done at the same studio in Spain.
