    4. Does not sound like Maiden, at all. Great solos, without them, this would rank even lower in my catalog.
    From Here To Eternity is one of few Maiden songs that i never listen to individually, they sneak only in album runs.

    Fun song not terrible but not good. Better than Hooks in You though. 6/10.

    This song is a sad attempt at revisiting older ideas. There really isn't anything good about this and I have no clue why I'm giving it a 4/10. Perhaps it's because I can remember the whole song. Unlike 3-4 songs on this crap album.

    After a promising start that is BQOBD, From Here to Eternity fails to continue the good. Zare is right, doesn't sound like Maiden at all. Bruce's voice is annoying during the whole songs plus the song full of other weird voices & sounds that are just stupid. 4/10

    I love this song. It works great live, chorus is made for singing along, and solos are very memorable and interesting. And yes, I like Bruce's vocals on this one. 10/10.

    I agree with everyone here on Janick's solo - fabulous and emotive. He really brings out the emotion, even if the emotion is just tongue-in-cheek. Not every song needs to be Passchenfuckingdale, and this one is one of their best straight-ahead rockers. Total guilty pleasure, best moment on a criminally-bad album, and shows just how versatile Maiden are! :edmetal: :shred:

    A nice rocker, with a great sing-along chorus.  6/10

    Actually, the entire album is rather underrated. Although, 1/3rd of the songs are filler-ish. But the rest of the album is very good.
     
  8. Good song. I've liked this one since I first gave it a listen while watching the cool music video. Very catchy, and the raspy vocals work well. 8

    Great song for me (awesome solos), but not among the best, so 8/10.

    I agree! It's one of my favorite guilty pleasures from the band. It"s fun. I like it.

    I like the bluesy leads in this song (a real rarity). Janick's whammy bar solo is really cool. Bruce's random speech parts are annoying, though.

    Not as good as the opener, but quite catchy still. The intro and breakdown with the clean guitar is cool. The chorus are not that good, but the verses are, on the other hand. What makes the song better is the breakdown and the translation into the solo which I think is golden.

    6/10

    8. Maiden does ACDC and it sounds great in my opinion. I also love the Meat Loaf style engine solo.

    A fun song in some ways, but the chorus is quite grating, and overall it seems to lack energy. Following BQOBD probably doesn't help.

    It's cathcy, which annoys me, 'cause it's a very annoying song at the same time. 6/10

    From Here to Eternity is the official third, and final, song in the story of Charlotte the Harlot. She gets on a motorcycle and rides away from her life of sin…straight to hell. Well, that’s certainly fitting. The bluesy guitar leads are fantastic, but the song is just too plebeian for Maiden. Endless double entendres and AC/DC-esque riffing is not why I listen to Maiden. Bruce even sounds like Brian Johnson again. Apparently he was consciously experimenting with “rougher” tones on these 90s albums and although it’s not always bad, he goes really overboard on this album. Murray and Gers turn in furious solos, though, with Gers even perfecting his whammy bar attack by incorporating it within an actual melodic structure.

    Sounds more like an AC/DC cover than a Maiden cover. The gang vocals in the chorus is so out un-Maiden. I don't have a problem with Maiden doing something different, but this just feels like such a huge step below everything I like about Maiden. It's almost a waste of their talents and maybe a lame attempt at getting on MTV.

    Guitar solos are indeed great, but save the song they do not.

    Other than the guitar solos, this is a terrible, failed song. It might reflect what Steve thought was popular at the time, but then again, I have no idea where that terrible, cheesy opening riff comes from. It almost feels like Steve was trying to write a Maiden-ish parody of some of the stuff from Tattooed Millionaire.

    3/10.
