    Unpopular Metal/Rock Opinions

    Three excellent albums which are all guilty of one of my personal pet peeves in music, namely separating a great song into separate tracks. I've got a very low opinion of Eat Me Alive as well.

    I probably prefer Stained Class as an album to British Steel, which now that I think about it may constitute an unpopular opinion in and of itself.

    Unpopular Metal/Rock Opinions

    I love most of the pop metal bands (e.g. Amaranthe) because the massive cheesy choruses remind me of glam metal, which I miss dearly.

    I guess it is less of a bad and more of a boring replacement. Winkler had a certain edge that (for me) made him more interesting to listen to.

    Justifiable controversy aside, the new singer isn't doing them any favours, is he? I wasn't planning on getting any more of their stuff anyway but this would have put me off regardless.

    Which Iron Maiden album does have the biggest number of filler songs to it?

    I think there are a few objective ways of measuring if a song isn't filler: 1 - It was released as a single 2 - It was included on a compilation album 3 - It was played on a tour after the respective album tour For example, I think the only songs from TNOTB you can fairly argue might be filler...
