This is one of the maiden "epics" to end an album but it just didn't feel epic to me. In fact, it didn't seem like a final track at all. It feels like it belongs in the middle of an album as a transition. It's still good though, just very clearly the "worst" of the epic songs to end maiden's albums thus far in the Bruce era. It's not at the level of Hallowed Be Thy Name or Rime of the Ancient Mariner. 9/10 because a true epic, album closing song should be... well... epic. ps. i read that they were going to name the song Dune after the novel it's based on, but the author was very rude and told them if they don't immediately drop any attempt at getting his permission, he will sue them in civil court. Bruce said he was a cunt.
