    Satellite 15 is a moody, throbbing intro constructed completely by Adrian Smith in a computer program. The track sounds like what it is: a demo. Bruce's vocals are clearly smashed in after the fact, wailing away over a piece of music that didn’t really need vocals. The drums are clearly synthetic, occasionally skipping or missing the beat by a hair. Though a cool idea, it’s a completely pointless piece of music and should have been left off the album. The Final Frontier kicks off with a single Nicko snare hit and a big crunchy chordal riff. It's another upbeat rocker destined to be a single. Like Different World and Wildest Dreams before it, Final Frontier lacks that special quality and feels a bit lazy. There’s nothing particularly bad about the song, though, and there is a classic Adrian and Dave solo duel. Dave’s lead is awesome. Overall it’s a song with a cool concept and an absolutely adequate delivery.
