    I want the Adrian-only version of the entire album.

    Hot damn this song cooks. Best short song of the reunion? Probably, either this or The Alchemist. 9/10.

    Must say I feel this is a bit overrated on here. It's nicely paced with quite a nice and unusual melody line but really doesn't excite enough for a shortish rocker.

    Rainmaker is short and upbeat, but it is light years better than the opening track. The opening riff sounds like raindrops (according to the Dickinson), an apt description for a lot of Dave Murray’s smooth-toned riffs. The guitars are on fire throughout Rainmaker and Dickinson’s melodies are quite catchy. Davey’s solo and constant bluesy fills make this song something special. Too bad it didn't have a long shelf live at gigs.

    8/10.

    Adore the guitar work - the intro riff, Murray's licks, the fantastic solo and the key changed interlude after it - all amazing. The vocal lines are however not as good which drags it down to a weak 8.

    This is easily my second-favorite Murray song, losing only to Thin Line. On this album I think only the title track and Paschendale are stronger.

    My guess is that Bruce has trouble singing it.

    On the one hand, this song is a bit overrated. On the other hand, it's a great song. Love the chorus, enjoyable overall, 8/10 for me.

    A step up from Wildest Dreams. Dave shines on this track. A great intro, brilliant solo and lots of lovely licks throughout the song.

    8/10
