    A fairly average song, but one of the first dealing with historical events. Musically it's pretty straightforward, the lenghty guitar solos are cool, but otherwise there's not too much to it I think.

    I think that song would have done good as an instrumental. Paul is a bit in a rush at points. Anyway, the chorus is not as weird as the one from Invaders! [!--emo&;)--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/wink.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'wink.gif\' /][!--endemo--]
    a good b-side, 3,5 stars

    One of the best ones on this album. I love the lyrics and the drive, as well as the superb changes of rhythm.

    This song is quite good (the soundhouse tapes version), but the one released on the Women in Uniform is, in my opinion, awful; too fast, sounds like it`s speeded up.

    Soundhouse Tapes: 3.12 minutes
    Women in Uniform: 2.38 minutes  :blink:

    That's what Clive gave to Maiden songs: energy, speed, passion ... If you listen the 1979 Music Machine bootleg with Doug Sampson you can check it with songs like Wrathchild.

    Not a big fan of this song, glad it wasn't on the album. Clive does a brillant job thought

    5/10

    It's an okay song, but terribly dated, and Di'Anno's just not up to scratch. I do, however, love the drums. Still only a 5/10 though.
