    Things about Iron Maiden that annoy you

    Poor production values ever since they parted ways with Martin Birch. Writing long uninspired songs just for the sake of being long.

    the better DiAnno album

    I prefer the debut but both are fantastic.

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    This probably doesn't really count as "blasphemy" but I think if you subtract The Angel and The Gambler and Don't Look to the Eyes of a Stranger, and then add Virus, Virtual XI is actually a pretty solid album. I wish we could hear both TXF and Virtual XI re-recorded with better production...

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    Going off what is said above, I don't think 2000s Maiden really deserves the "prog" label. And this isn't me gatekeeping prog (I hardly even listen to it), rather just calling a sheep a sheep. There's certainly some progressive elements here and there, but to actually call it prog seems like a...

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    Fix the production and some of Blaze's clunky notes and it's a perfect album, IMO.

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    I think saying VXI is better than Killers is more of a blaspehmy. Comparing XF and Killers is like apples and oranges.

    Kevin Shirley’s production of Senjutsu

    Yeah I don't think Dance of Death or even AMOLAD sound particularly bad. It does have some of meh loudness and but I personally think it's way better than Book of Souls or Senjutsu, which are really muddy and headache inducing. I actually really like the how The Final Frontier sounds. I think...

    Kevin Shirley’s production of Senjutsu

    Being a mainly classical listener, I can very easily tell the difference, but that plugin sound is very tasteful. That's a good sound library. Here's the thing though: even if the plugins are really good, what's so wrong with hiring actual musicians? They have the budget for it and the...

    Kevin Shirley’s production of Senjutsu

    I respectfully disagree. I do agree MIDi can be used tastefully in the right way but I hear so many instances where it's not. The MIDI piano on Empire of the Clouds isn't so bad because piano is a timbre that can be replicated without sounding terrible, but the fake cello and the fake horns are...

    Kevin Shirley’s production of Senjutsu

    I don't get how a band with arguably the biggest budget in the business can be so cheap with using MIDI in lieu of real instruments. You're Iron Maiden, you can hire an actual cellist, violinist, pianist, even a whole orchestra. Not only does using MIDI sound lame and cheesy, but also...

    Hooks In You

    I probably should've said "change" :p

    Hooks In You

    Take out Bruce's gross raspy vocals and the cringey lyrics and this is actually a great song.

    Kevin Shirley’s production of Senjutsu

    I'm one of these people. It's Steve Harris calling the shots more than Shirley and I'm not a fan of the direction he took the band, stylisically and sonically.

    Weakest Song from each Iron Maiden album

    Yeah, 2000s Maiden was never my cup of tea to begin with but I just can't get into Senjutsu whatsoever.
