    Martin Birch passed away

    I'm very saddened to read of Martin 'Marvin' Birch's passing. He is THE producer who gave them the possibility to get the sound they wanted/needed and enabled them to reach their full potential. I love that man. Forever. Please don't ruin this thread with silly disputes. Let's just honour him...

    Oui ! I imagine a lot of people think it's crap, but I love that track and would have included it in the album. The sound is shitty, the lyrics very basic, and yet... I don't know, it's the Murray magic! Clue 1: the theme of this song is very similar to that of a song on an album released by...

    Poll: To produce or not to produce?

    Iron Maiden Covers Album - Would You Buy It?

    That Girl is a cover but was released a few weeks after the original song and sounds nothing like it. It's a half-cover :bigsmile:. It is one of my favourite tracks, so beautiful, especially the guitars and vocals.

    Poll: To produce or not to produce?

    Adrian was present when they mixed Somewhere in Time (my favourite album, if I have to choose one). You can tell the difference if you compare it to the previous three albums (all masterpieces of course). I think it is obvious he has a better understanding than Steve, at least as to how the...
