Guest review by
I bought Iron Maiden's newest cd used in fear that I wouldn't like it. It even took some further contemplation of whether I was going to lay down $4.99 for it. (Yes, I am picky and cheap.) Anyway, all my doubts and fears were destroyed after one listen to this album.

It may not be the exact same Maiden you're used to - some of it is a bit slower, but incredibly artistic. Bruce's voice is as fine-tuned as ever, and you just can't go wrong with three good guitarists. The sound is very melodic, as usual, and very easily gets stuck in your head. I've had "Blood Brothers" in my head for almost three months now. Most of the songs clock in over six minutes, and the entire cd is over an hour long. With Iron Maiden especially, the more the better. And the songs definitely do not disappoint, that is, unless you're one of the strict "new sucks, I only like their older music" type people.

Surely one of the band's better albums. This could be better yet if wasn't so long; the 2nd half could lose a couple of songs (#7 and #8).

This album gets really close to perfection imo. The whole album is full of beautiful songs. Personally, it's my 2nd favourite IM album. It's the true essence of what makes heavy metal so great.

Yeah I can understand that, you are definitely not the only one who finds The Nomad to be too long. Personally, I love that song but then again I kinda like the longer Iron Maiden songs.

If it wasn't for the last two tracks, I'd easily give this a 10. One of the band's best works.

It feels almost on the verge of being a concept album, blazing out a new sound that built on the old Iron Maiden whilst doing something much more solid and artistic. Some of the weaker tracks here are merelt 'good' - not a single one is a waste of your time

A very strong album from Maiden with a crystal clear production and progressive song structure, that never feels unwelcome. It contains some of Maiden's best songs like Ghost of the Navigator, Brave New World, Dream of Mirrors and The Thin Li Between Lova and Hate. Unfortunately it also have some songs that are a little repetitive and somewhat overrated like Blood Brothers, The Wicker and Out of the Silent Planet. But even they are pretty solid. The only ones that really feel like fillers are The Mercenary and The Fallen Angel, but they are also still passable. So overall a very strong album, with few flaws, which highs are as high as Maiden gets.

Has some good moments but a huge let down in comparison with their glory days.
