That is something I noticed about the IM fans. If you were with them from the beginning you simply cannot NOT like Di'anno and the first two albums. If the band didn't have Di'anno they wouldn't be where they are today. Di'anno is a different type of singer. Not nearly as good as Bruce (I can admit that and I like Bruce more than Di'anno myself plus 666 is my favorite IM album), but still he was a very good fit for IM and album No.1 & 2 beats everything past POM. No small thanks to Clive Burr who could ran circles around Nicko. Not to mention Dennis Stratton, who I like just a bit more than Adrian and Janick combined.

Fans who started with Bruce have a hard time adjusting to Di'anno, but that is just a giveaway of when they joined the club. They also tend to be more tolerant of the BB era. Which is forgivable, but you got to give the first two albums another listen. At least until you can appreciate them as a part of something special.

I acknowledge their importance to the overall Maiden story. I just have never really been able to appreciate them like I should.

And others may do it, but I've never hidden where my fandom for Iron Maiden started. If asked I always say it was the Somewhere In Time album.

And to your point about Blaze Bayley, I actually do like most of those two albums he did with the band.
