    To Tame a Land

    Obviously, not.

    Killers: Album Discussion

    Classic transitional album: half of the songs have clearly been discarded from Iron Maiden, the other half are a completely different style and are heading to The Number of the Beast-style.

    Lost In A Lost World

    If they wanted us to listen it at 1.25x, then they would have recorded it at 1.25x. But that’s not what happened.

    The Parchment

    Not how tempo works and surely not what "350bpm" means.

    Your favorite 10 seconds of Maiden?

    Not my favorite 10 seconds ever (and I am not even sure it lasts for 10 seconds), but the moment when, in The Parchment, Bruce sings "hear the cry, we are ready to believe" is awesome.

    Senjutsu's album review (song by song and overall)

    Senjutsu: 8 – excellent opener Stratego: 4 – may be the worst reunion track by Janick, here and there sounds incomplete to say the least The Writing on the Wall: 6.5 – easy listening, classic lead single Lost in a Lost World: 3 – horrible, only the intro and outro are of some interest Days of...

    The Parchment

    ?! It's 16th notes at around 90bpm, and the down picking is far from last for 6 minutes, starting from 4:16 it clearly is alternate picking. And no down picking is happening starting from the end of Dave's solo til the end of Adrian's solo.

    Pedal point.

    The Parchment

    There is literally nothing out of the ordinary.

    The Final Frontier: individual album judgement by yours truly

    2021 re-listening: Satellite 15... The Final Frontier: 5 – I still can't understand why they merged these two songs together; the intro kinda works, the song works... but not together El Dorado: 4/5 – cliché song Mother of Mercy: 7.5 – very good buildup, structure, lyrics... amateur editing...

    Brave New World: individual album judgement by yours truly

    2021 re-listeninig: The Wicker Man: 6 – straight to the point, linear riffing, standard HM opener after all Ghost of the Navigator: 7/8 – nice build-up and melodies, good work on the chorus Brave New World: 7.5 – works better live, repetitive chorus (the 2nd over 3 songs) Blood Brothers: 7.5 –...

    Virtual XI: individual album judgement by yours truly

    2021 re-listening: Futureal: 6 – passable shorter and opener, cool wild solo The Angel and the Gambler: 1 – still I question myself... why? Lighting Strikes Twice: 5/6 – nice melodies, laughable chorus The Clansman: 3.5 – I'm rating the album version, which is full of errors and condemned by an...

    A Matter of Life and Death: individual album judgement by yours truly

    2021 re-listening Different World: 4.5 – standard riffs, enjoyable solo, laughable lyrics These Colours Don't Run: 6/7 – great mood, -0.25 due to the pointless 'oooh oooh' section Brighter than a 1000 Suns: 7.5 – cool riffing and ideas here and there, but too long and too repetitive The...

    To Tame a Land

    Has ever been explicitly said (by Harris or someone linked to Harris) that that riff from To Tame a Land is based upon Albeniz' Asturias?
