    Which Bruce Dickinson-less album do you think would have benefited the most from his vocals? We are not talking about re-recording. In terms of success, quality and legacy, whats your take?

    The X Factor.

    I still regard it as a masterpiece as it is. But it would have been interesting in terms of critical response. I'm sure the response would have been a lot better!

    I'm leaning toward Virtual XI. Several songs fit his style more than Blaze imo. X Factor is a close second, but I think the album would've taken a very different direction with Bruce.

    No thanks to him singing on the Paul albums.

    For my money, Iron Maiden is the best of the bunch, and the one I'd most enjoy his vocals on. I quite enjoy the music on Virtual XI, so that would be my second choice.

    I still wouldn't be able to tell the difference between Another Life and Innocent Exile if they were sung by Bruce, and whilst he does a mighty rendition of Sign of the Cross even he can't put out the dumpster fire that is The X Factor.

    Can there be a 'none' option? I think they're all fine as is and could not decide for the life of me. :p

    In my opinion - all of them would benefit. ;) Except for Killers. That one would benefit from better songs.

    Hey now, I think Killers is awesome. And it has nothing to do with the fact it was my first Maiden album and is very near and dear to my heart...nope, not at all.....:innocent:

    I fixed this poll. I should also move it to the polls forum...in fact, I'm going to.

    I would love to hear the rest of The X Factor with Bruce on vocals.
     
  12. None of them. Even songs from Killers such as Wrathchild don't sound quite right with Bruce.

    Yes Bruce adds something to Clansman & Sign of the Cross, but the weaker Blaze songs would still be weak songs, irrespective of who sang them...

    None. It never crossed my mind. Also not when the Blaze albums came out. This was how the new singer sounded, this was how the band sounded, this was how the music sounded and the singer was part of it.
