  1. Kill Devil Hill

    The Time Machine

    I don’t think the intro is that similar to The Talisman, but that riff is definitely copy-paste The Book of Souls. I had this album on in the background while studying and for a split second really believed I accidentally hit shuffle and was listening to TBoS.

    I adore The Final Frontier

    This is far and away the best aged album of theirs for me. I thought it was very middle-of-the-road for them. Not bad but not outstanding. However, as the years creep by, TFF has grown on me. Dare I say I put it above AMOLAD, which is my favorite reunion album and my second favorite album of...

    Bruce Dickinson

    I didn't even think of the dedication. Maybe that's what Brittany was talking about when she said she was excluded from his book. It would make sense if Paddy was the one who wanted everything excluded since she was clearly not okay with that situation.

    Bruce Dickinson

    Being fair, he left out everything about his personal life. He doesn't ever mention meeting/marrying Jane or Paddy, doesn't even mention how his first son inspired "Laughing in the Hiding Bush," literally nobody in his family exists in that book beyond his grandfather. It was a complaint I had...

    Bruce Dickinson

    It looks like Brittany Potts was born in '87 and Bruce started dating Paddy in '88 (he divorced Jane in '87).

    Curious fact about Maiden's songs titles

    Piece of Mind is listed there on Spambot's post as Peace of Mind. Still Life says peace of mind. Therefore, it is a title track. And if CSIT counts as a title track (level of similarity be damned!), so can Still Life. Flawless logic.

    Curious fact about Maiden's songs titles

    Still Life is a title track. Prove me wrong.

    Covers that are better than the originals... or just covers

    :cheers: I watched the first like 20 seconds and thought you were trolling.

    Rant Thread

    I'm having flashbacks to the Survivor we had like 8 years ago where the album was annihilated and I just weakly aspirated, "TWAT... save the TWAT."

    Covers that are better than the originals... or just covers

    I didn’t realize there were still people butthurt about Chinese Democracy 5 years after the reunion. Shame. You’re missing out on really good music.

    Covers that are better than the originals... or just covers

    Jeff Buckley's covers are usually better than the original: Hallelujah Lilac Wine (debatable) We All Fall In Love Sometimes A Satisfied Mind I Shall Be Released Just Like a Woman (debatable, but I think he gets it by just a smidge) Chinese Democracy-era Guns N' Roses did an absolutely...

    Your Top 10 songs of any band you want

    Well now it’ll look like I’m cheating by sneaking some songs on but the way TSP styles their albums, some textures just kind of run into each other and intensifies the dynamic. That’s why I love Gish — each song flows pretty perfectly into one another. I was able to separate Mayonaise from...

    Bruce Dickinson

    Bruce sang me happy birthday when I turned 16 on that radio show and it was my ringtone back when ringtones were a thing. Good thing I still have that audio archived.

    THE IRON MAIDEN COVERENDUM: Angel Stage (FINAL!)

    Crazy that this got bumped today of all days. RIP Alexi Laiho.

    The Final Frontier: individual album judgement by yours truly

    This album has grown on me the most of any Maiden album over the years since TXF because, though I agree much of it retreads old territory, there were a lot of new ideas and concepts. I prefer BNW and AMOLAD as far as post-reunion albums, but they're very much standard Maiden fodder. TFF is more...

    New album Wrath of the Waters (fake)

    I for one am down for a nautically-inclined album, though. Like an evolution of Ghost of the Mallard Navigator or The Talisman.

    What songs/albums have you changed your mind the most drastically about, since you started listening to IM?

    I'm afraid this is Bruce's fault. The following explanation is a tad convoluted but please bear with me: Whenever Bruce is trying to conserve his voice in live settings, he sings them in a particular "voice" in a particular range. An obvious example of this is when he sings "in the name of God...
