    Thanks, UpTheIrons. Bruce should be knighted for his recent entrepreneurial activity, his overall outstanding contribution to UK music, and especially for this song. Let's start an online petition.

    The Book Of Souls (song not album)

    This song is so epic, so heavy, so powerful. Sooo good. Mr Gers at his best. 10/10

    Haha. Fair enough. It requires, like, a dozen of listens - there's so much to explore.

    I know I've said this already, but this album is fantastic. To be honest, I didn't expect them to release such a strong album. I have tears in my eyes.

    Are you saying "The Book of Souls" as an album is just "ok"? :eek: Or are you talking about the production? :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I agree. But it's much easier for me to compare it with post-reunion albums, especially since DOD - the first Maiden release I waited for as a fan.

    What an amazing album. It would be no exaggeration to say that it's their strongest since BNW.

    The production isn't great, but it's something I get used to after a few minutes of listening to an album. In terms of lyrics it's one of their strongest, but musically it's mediocre - especially songs like TFF, El Dorado and The Alchemist. Don't get me wrong, there some great moments on this...

    Perhaps it was a good decision by Harry to come to the studio only with *ideas* for songs - and to make these songs in the studio. Rock music has to be exciting and lively.

    To some people it does matter, apparently. I remember that day very well - on Monday evening I had TFF on my mp3 player, and listened to it on repeat for hours before going to bed on Tuesday morning.
