    The Book of Souls: General album discussion

    Well its a great album overall. Sadly there is some filler issues(like DoD)as well as riff rehash and edits needed, but there ya go. My reunion rankings 1. BNW 2. AMOLAD 3. TFF, DOD, BOS

    Hmmm On third listen. I'm still not sure. There's some cool stuff for sure. BOS, IESF EOTC, but a fair amount of it is just not catching me. I don't knowo_O Keep listening of course. But my feeling at the mo, is BNW and AMOLAD are considerably better. I 'll make a more fair assesmant later

    The Book of Souls - Deluxe Book Contents

    Im on my second listen right now. Still reserving judgement. My first impression was that there were some "possibly cool" melodies taking place that I couldn't make out. But I know I still need time with it

    The Book of Souls - Deluxe Book Contents

    Going to the shop shortly to get the deluxe. Have the iTunes version right now. Was wondering if there are any other extras? Was hoping for a "making of" vid, or a link to one?

    F*@king hell. I'm done. Its 4:51 am. Just finished EOTC. My mind is a jumble of mad impressions. EOTC was unbelievable. But such a hard album to grasp. Needs more time. I'll set my alarm for a morning of BOS with coffee :D

    I guess it's a lick, riff or repeated phrase that "hooks" you. Sticks in your head, makes you repeat in your brain. A catchy section I guess. Hooks in you

    I think so. But its soooo much. And its all go go go, barely takes a breath. Wondering if it needs a breath/ or some light and shade somewhere. But I know from past experiences these albums take time to blossom..Think I need a break before I go to the last 3 songs. Phew!
