    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    I think on the whole it's a very strong album. No real weak songs...but of course we can still all rank them. I'm not sure it's quite up there with BNW and AMOLAD but its close. How it sits with DOD TFF and BOS I haven't figured out yet. I think the song Senjutsu it one of the highlights for...

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    Yea this is where my head is at too. But I'm hesitant to rank Senjutsu just yet....as its still fresh and still growing. Wasn't sure about DOTC on first listen or two...however now after listen 4/5 its starting to appear. Brilliant. This album and FInal Frontier have been the biggest growers for...

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    Well I have to say, the album is growing. Was pretty confused and overwhelmed I think on first listen...but it really starts to unlock after 3 or 4 runs. Currently listening to first track...dear God its totally brilliant and different...Once your expectations move aside and you see the tracks...

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    Oh I don't know so far. Im 2 runs in, and obviously need many more...but I'm concerned about the lack of a 10/10 song? There has always been 2 or 3 10/10 songs on every reunion album. Feel like I can't see through the density of the album yet.

    yes, my worry after only 2 run throughs I admit, is that there is no 10 out of 10 :( . This cannot be. Every Maiden reunion album has at least 1, 2 or 3 10/10 tracks. More listens needed.

    Hard to take it all in on a first listen. I did feel frustrated with the typical Harrisisms and Janickisms. Im hoping it will grow on me....but I did feel like a good chunk of the album was written by a Harris/Gers invented AI. Created to simulate almost exactly what they would write. Not sure...

    Arg....actually shaking with excitement. About to go home with a nasty ass takeaway, and a few beers and finally absorb myself in the new album. Been avoiding here for the sake of anticipation. And now to drown myself in a golden shower of new Maiden.

    Yea, but that box.ironmaiden.com doesn't lead anywhere for me. I've tried it various ways in diff browsers. Leads nowhere. Am I in the wrong part of the world? Ireland

    box.ironmaiden.com? I've been looking around trying to find a booklet to download while I wait for official album. Any tips on where I can get the PDF guys?

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    woohoo...senjutsu eve. I'm glad not to have listened to any leaks. Hunger is the best sauce as they say. I want the wait to sweeten the eventual experience of new album. I know I will have it from itunes after midnight tonight, but think I'd rather get some worky stuff outa the way tomorrow.

    Welcome my friend. Well said. I am definitely trying to cherish this special time. There's no certainty it will happen again. The wait before the beautiful dawn of a new Maiden album.

    ah digital leaks. I remember growing up and you'd get your albums on cassette tape. Then make a copy on your double deck stereo for your mates. Stick blank cassette in right side...play and record....

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    I've actually considered both those titles. Would have particularly loved 'Hell on Earth' as an album title. Think of the artwork. But still, I'm happy with SJ. its new and different, and kinda punchy

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    Its fun to read so many reviews...and for the vast majority of them to be very positive. But thinking back through some stuff I remember reading over the years, puts them into context. Somewhere in Time was called a poppy, glossy misfire back in the day, and I also remember FOTD being hailed as...

    Any sign of the Kerrang review yet? Think that should be the last main review?

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    So I've always loved the experience of a new Maiden album (as we all have) while reading through the lyrics at the same time. Especially for the first few run throughs. Now the copy I've ordered from local music store, won't be available this Friday...but album will be streamable from Thurs...
