    A great return to form

    I'm with you - I was afraid of another weak album after TBOS, but the singles sounded promising and now that I have heard the whole album multiple times, I agree it could be trimmed here and there, but in overall, pretty good result. If it is their last, then what an end, right? The great thing...

    The Unbeliever

    Great song. Never got fed up with this one contrary to other IM material. One of the songs I love The X-Factor for.

    Why not Paul Dianno instead of Blaze?

    Well, a thread full of what-ifs and guesswork :-) I think Blaze is not a good singer (live especially), he has problems with intonation which can be heard even on studio efforts (e.g. in the chorus of Sign of the Cross), but that being said, I consider The X-Factor to be the best IM album along...

    European Politics Maybe, they should separate them by the country of origin :-) Sadly, I heard that some of them lie about their origin saying they are syrians even when they are not...

    Seems I should start learning Arabic if we are about to be a part of a new caliphate :-) Nice guy, isn't he?

    European Politics

    I do not know about others, but I am afraid of losing money (the immigrants will have hard time finding a job -> it will be us who will pay for their homes and food - this is already happening with Gipsies here) or losing life being attackend in a dark alley :-) I think it is not just about...

    European Politics

    Ok this will be a "hearsay" because I do not live near such area: 1. Chánov - Roma ghetto in the Czech Republic 2. Heinz Buschkowsky and his book "Neukölln ist überall" - talks about problems with muslims in Neukölln. 3. I also heard about some such locations in France, I apologize for not being...

    European Politics

    LooseCannon: Hmm, I do not know :-) The european countries were not able to solve their no-go zone problems so far. I do not think they will be able to handle immigrants better. From your description of Canada, it seems that immigrants are willing to integrate/adapt there, but it does not seems...

    If Eternity Should Fail

    I have read it right now and it is not much of a story :) It is a part of a multi-issue story arc. In this part I have not read the lyrics of the song too carefully, but I think the only common thing is that it talks about some mystical things?

    If Eternity Should Fail

    Fun fact: I tried to scan/search this thread and was not able to find this: I happen to read some old Dr. Strange comics stories nowadays and one of them is called "If Eternity Should Fail!" (Strange Tales Vol 1, #138)

    European Politics

    The Flash: that is good about the arabists I mentioned - they try to put it to perpective - e.g Hrbek's Quran translation contains quite a large commentary to the respective surahs. So I hope to learn a lot from him. Musil even lived among Arabs, albeit that was around 1900 - not recently :)...

    European Politics

    I'm from the Czech Republic and yes, I agree, we should be cut financially, we should have left EU a long time ago actually, I think :-) And yes, we are afraid of unknown. I actually do not follow these immigrant problems that much, but I believe large countries like Germany or France already...

    The Book Of Souls sounds so much better on vinyl (Videos)

    This is what I think they should do. Hey - how expensive pressing of CD can be? What about giving us four CDs instead of two? One pair would contain "travel mix" - a bit compressed, let's say DR7 or DR8 - still listenable, but loud, and the second pair would contain "audiophile mix" - it's not...

    PAUL DI'ANNO To Perform Entire First IRON MAIDEN Album On Upcoming U.S. Tour

    Just a warning, I have heard about a similar gig (Paul DiAnno – June 19, 2010, 7 pm,  Sydney – The Gaelic Theatre) - full Iron Maiden album + some tracks from Killers. Reportedly, Paul had some issues with microphone, lost his temper, called everyone names including his band members and the gig...

    Westman, Indsman and other troubles of a would-be translator

    Yeah, it seems very likely :-) And the Czech translations use "westman" (without the last 'n') - this is probably where my confusion comes from, because May's version with double 'n' sounds like a correct german word. Some translator then removed one 'n' and the word started to look like...
