9/10, my fave Maiden instrumental
@Jupz: I hope you don't mind me to say this, but it's incredibly difficult for me to know when you have done a full album. You give rankings in a totally random order, for quite a while already. One or two songs per week, and never in the same album. What I want to ask you is the following: As soon as you think you have done a whole album, and you think I have missed this: please tell me?
Thanks in advance!
The best Maiden instrumental, has fantastic ideas. 10/10
9- Good instrumental, it's always painted a vivid picture in my head of Transylvania which I guess is the point. I really like the slow down near the end as it fades into Strange World.
Great instrumental.Nice flowing riffs in the first part, great solos on the second. 9/10
9/10 the best instrumental theyve done by far and really atmospheric, steves best idea
still cant reach 10 in my eyes because of how many songs pummel it
I get the feeling Steve Harris was really pleased when he came up with this one. Lots of Maiden's signature instrumental sounds are laid out here.
9/10. I love this instrumental.
Fantastic instrumental piece, flows exceptionally well, and the atmosphere is superb. Rivaled only by Ghengis Khan for Maiden's best instrumental. 9/10
7/10. Its ok, but somehow Maiden's instrumentals have never impressed me all that much.
I love, love, love this song. I have almost wrecked my car a few times while listening! I was listening to it today while waiting in line to go through a bank drive through and got some sideways looks from some geriatric pedestrians!
I normally turn my music down a few decibels when at stoplights and such, as not to be that douche that is forcing his music upon pedestrians. For some reason I feel Maiden doesn't fall into that category. Ask the people that got blasted with Caught Somewhere In Time at the coffee shop today.
7. A good instrumental.
The absolute best Maiden instrumental tied with Losfer Words. Unforgettable and melodic riffs, awesome bass licks (3:07 in particular), the time change after the first theme is awesome, and Clive's epic fills that follow kick ass. I love the fade out which flows seamlessly into Strange World.
Is it just me, or does Clive's cymbal tremolo at the end sound a lot like a flock of bats fluttering (hence Transylvania/Dracula)? Or do I have an overactive imagination? XD
Amazing track, possibly the best on the debut. Amazing riffs, amazing solos, not a second wasted all throughout. An anthem without words. 10/10
I still haven't woken up. Such good guitar work. I also love instrumental metal songs and I never understand why some people don't like them. I feel that every good album needs one. Shh don't tell me that NOTB doesn't have one.
A good instrumental with good riffs and melodies, but not that interesting. Becomes a little flat, but still good!
This instrumental has an excellent groove, being in 12/8. The guitar riffs and melodies are awesome, but it's Clive and Steve who really drive this track.
It features some awesome fills, and one of my favorite bass lines. 8/10
Always a song that gets the blood pumping. Maiden's best instrumental, 9/10.
