    I like to see all the love that Grace Under Pressure gets. I can't stand the song Red Lenses, but I think every other song is perfect.

    If they swapped out any songs from last year's set I think the additions would have to be something like 'Heaven Can Wait' or another war song like 'The Aftermath' or 'These Colours Don't Run'

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    I don't think Iron Maiden has made a perfect 10/10 album. Their discography is mostly 8/10 and 9/10 albums (except for the 90s where they range from 4/10 to 7/10), but no single iron Maiden album is what I would consider "perfect".

    The Official Book of Souls Tour 2016 Thread (Warning: Spoilers within!)

    It's a "dad rock" song. Very un-Maiden.

    The Official Book of Souls Tour 2016 Thread (Warning: Spoilers within!)

    You forgot the most important one - Bruce hasn't sang a live performance for a long time because he just healed from a golf ball-sized tumor he had surgically removed from his throat. He sounded mostly good, judging from the clips on Youtube. Most singers (including Bruce) get better the longer...

    Who saw that coming? Not me, no sir.

    This concert is going to end late. Feel sorry for the people who have to wake up early tomorrow - tomorrow is going to feel LONG.

    At least Powerage is a good album.

    The Book of Souls: General album discussion

    Unfortunately, this album hasn't held up great for me. It's still a very good album, but probably my least favorite of the "reunion" albums. That said, I'm looking forward to the tour!

    Bruce's vocals

    I think Bruce's voice sounds strained in some places too. Yet it also sounded strained in places on The Final Frontier, but he seemed to nail those same songs effortlessly live. I cannot help but wonder if the guys are just mixing the vocals weird in parts because their hearing range isn't...

    Empire Of The Clouds

    It feels shorter than 18 minutes, which is a sign that it's a great piece of music. So many twists and turns in this song. I love it!

    Speed Of Light

    Not full of surprises and fairly predictable rocker with an infectious lead guitar line. Feels a tad out of place on this album, but I think that this would be a scorcher live.

    Shadows Of The Valley

    Once again, Gers brings the riffs.

    The Red And The Black

    I like the music in this song, but I think the lyrics are awful. Kind of like 'Dream of Mirrors'.

    Recent Maiden setlist formula

    The best performers a know how to structure a set list that gets an audience excited during the show, while giving them a few moments of different atmosphere here and there. It's a lot like how album tracks are sequenced. Iron Maiden has it down to a science.

    I am more offended by the strings they have to use to hold Ozzy upright.

    Maiden new album in 2014

    I'm OK with them doing more touring next year then releasing a new album in 2015 (followed by another couple of tours). I want a new album as bad as anyone here, but I'm relatively content as long as the band is still active. When they stop touring altogether I will be upset.

    Your First Iron Maiden Album/Experience?

    Back in 1989, when I was about 10 I got an old cassette tape without a cover of 'The Number of the Beast' from somewhere (found it in a box of other tapes my dad bought at a garage sale, I think), and I played it just to hear what kind of music it was. It was rewound so it started on Side B, so...

    New Album 2014

    It's a rumor, but it makes sense. It would be 4 years after 'The Final Frontier'.

    Maiden England '88 + History Part 3 coming March 25th!

    I have never seen this concert before, so watching it last night was a treat. Great concert! The puppet show was "different". Tonight I'll be watching disc 2.
