    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    I agree that the highs are higher on TBOS, but I also feel the lows are lower. I find Senjutsu to be, overall, a more consistent album.

    Thanks for confirming. Sometimes my ears deceive me.

    Does Lost in a Lost World really have a repetitive chorus though; it's made up of 4 lines repeated 3 times; that's not a lot by modern Maiden standards.

    The Parchment mentions "Until we read the Parthian skin"; Parthian is the an empire in Iran, I am curious if this song is intended to tell a story in that location; would also make sense with the middle eastern styled guitars throughout.

    During the chorus of Darkest Hour, after Bruce sings Before the dawn the darkest hour, there seems to be some whispering but I haven't quite made out what it says, possible "just before the dawn"? Anyone hear that/figure it out yet?

    Right there with you on Bruce holding that final line in The Parchment, gets me every time.

    100% agree. It's a fine song, and one of the better ones on VXI, but I feel it is quite overrated.

    Senjutsu - 3rd September 2021

    That's one of the things that has me excited for this new album, and also one of the reasons I enjoy Maiden so much; they do a little bit of everything, and they tend to do it well.

    Also interesting as Tool do a very well known cover of that song.

    Lyrics: How do you read a madman’s mind Teach me the art of war For I shall bring more Than you bargained for Give me an ultimatum That I could not dream of Spills of a crying nation Upon my soul For I have not a mortal soul That you already know Look at my eyes There’s no surprise Ocean is...

    New single: Stratego

    Sinister is the perfect way to describe that riff; I was searching for the words to describe how it sounded, to my ears anyway, and you hit upon it for me.
