    Where Do You Buy Your Cds?

    Unfortunately, there is no "little guy" in my town, so I buy my CD's from Best Buy, a big nationwide electronic retailer.

    My favorite non-metal band is Dream Theater. Scenes from a Memory has become one of my favorite albums, although I did not like it very much at first.

    Two Categories Of Maiden Songs

    Those are some good ideas, but you said it yourself, Maiden probably don't think about these things while writing some songs. Anyhow, I think all Maiden songs are a blend of abstract and concrete ideas. For example, you put Rime of the Ancient Mariner in the concrete category, but both the song...

    Women In The World Subject N°1

    I don't know any statistics for the USA, but I don't think the gender map is nearly as bad as it is in other places. For example, federal jobs hire based off of affirmative action a lot, thats why at the DMV (Department of Motorized Vehicles), Post office, etc.; there are a lot of female...

    Testimonial And A Question

    I think you should start out with Live After Death, which has most of the big hits from the first 5 Maiden albums. You also get to experience how great of a live band Maiden are.

    The Reason Behind Blaze & Txf Bashing

    I think that The X Factor's dark mood contributed to the album being disliked by quite a few Maiden fans. However, I think the primary reason for all the Blaze era bashing is simply the fact that some people can't accept change. However, I've noticed that a lot of fans who once disliked The X...

    'montsegur' When I first heard Montsegur, I didn't like it that much. It reminded me a lot of the Mercenary at first because both songs are pretty heavy for Maiden standards and have repetative choruses. However, Montsegur has grown on me a lot and is now one of my favorite tracks from Dance of...

    anyone know some good acoustic music?

    Well Mr. Runningfree, If you like those acoustic tracks from Accident of Birth, check out The Chemical Wedding. Jerusalem (which has an acoustic intro) is quickly becoming one of my favorite songs. Check out Tears of the Dragon also, which is a great, great song that is mostly acoustic, but has...

    I'm not caught up on recent Megadeth news, but I thought that Dave Mustaine was going solo after The System has Failed?? I guess this contest prooves that idea wrong.

    The Trooper

    I had the same problem. For the longest time, I thought that Children of Bodom had indeed covered the Trooper (which sounded horrible by the way). I later found out that it wasn't them. I also found a cover of Aces High that was claimed to be done by Children of Bodom, even though it was from...
