    Another brilliant song. An amazing chorus, great riffs and some excellent vocals. I love the ending too. The only thing that pulls it down from full marks is all the living on a razor edge and balancing on a ledge.

    The Evil That Men Do, a Smith/Dickinson/Harris collaboration, is a rollicking tune with incredible guitar hooks and soaring vocals. Steve and Nicko are in top form, laying a solid foundation for Dave and H to tear up the scenery. The bridge is stellar and Adrian’s solo dovetails magically back into the chorus.

    Possibly the best song of its approximate length in Iron Maiden's discography, rivalling other blistering 4-5 minute songs such as Aces High and The Trooper and The Wicker Man. 10/10, like all the ones I just mentioned.

    The catchy one. Absolute classic Maiden to me.

    Love this song. It's such a stark contrast from CIPWM. Both are obvious singles, but one is more true to the Maiden sound than the other. Great melodies, great riffing, and one of my all time favorite Smith solos. If I had to name one flaw, I'd say that the chorus doesn't quite live up to the rest of the song. But literally everything else is top notch. From the lyrics right down to the drum fills.

    Another brilliant song on this awesome album. Superb tempo and gallop in the verses, awesome work from Steve and Bruce here.

    Then that wonderful soulful two part bridge might be the best they've ever done. All builds to that emphatic chorus which is superb. This has 3 songs worth of great melodies in one shortish track. Somehow feels like an epic even though it's fairly one paced. Perhaps this pace factor stops me giving a 10 but it's a very strong 9
