    I took a good 2 weeks off from listening to The Final Frontier at all and just put it on a short time ago.

    Yeah, I still really love this album.

    Travis The Dragon The dreamers may die, but the dreams live on.

    I'm still loving it as well!

    well after letting the album sink in, and playing AMOLAD (my favorite reunion album) back to back with it I decided that, I still like AMOLAD more. TFF may have the songs but AMOLAD just flows better as an album. So A Matter of Life and Death is still my favorite reunion album. (TFF a close second) I think if the album would've ended on Starblind and the tracklisting was a bit different it might have ranked higher than Death. Maybe with a track list like this?
    1:The Final Frontier
    2:El Dorado
    3:Mother Of Mercy
    4: Coming Home
    5:The Alchemist
    6:When The Wild Wind Blows
    7:The Talisman
    8:Isle Of Avalon
    9:The Man Who Would Be King
    10:Starblind

    My new top 15:
    15: Fear Of The Dark
    14: The X Factor
    13: No Prayer for the Dying
    12:Iron Maiden
    11: Number of the Beast
    10: Virtual XI
    9: Dance of Death
    8: Brave New World
    7: Somewhere in Time
    6: Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son
    5: The Final Frontier
    4: Powerslave
    3: A Matter of Life and Death
    2: Piece of Mind
    1: Killers

    After listening to this album several times, I can conclude that it was booooring  :down:

    Find it quite hard to get into any of the reunion albums...

    You just don't like long songs do you? You're missing out on some great stuff.
     
  11. Jupz

    Jupz Ancient Mariner

    This! The reunion era is fantastic, besides half of Dance of Death, which some people have been able to get into but not me :)
     
  12. Teddie

    Teddie Prowler

    There are some bearable songs, such as El Dorado or Starblind, but overall it doesn't seem particularly special.

    Its a bit like an album full of fillers and B-sides.  :down:
     
  13. Jupz

    Jupz Ancient Mariner

    You should probably take this to the blasphemy thread! :D
     
  14. Mosh

    How one can call a master piece like Isle Of Avalon filler is beyond my mind's comprehension.
