  1. Brave New Pilgrim

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    Brave New World is Maidens best album by a fair margin. One of the greatest albums ever made, period.

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    Maiden should have cut the majority of the shorter songs from TBOS, and extended The Great Unknown into an epic 8 or 9 minute song. 1- If Eternity Should Fail 2- Speed of Light 3- The Great Unknown (9 minute version) 4- The Red and the Black (Also 9 minute version :P ) 5- The Book of Souls 6-...

    The Book of Souls: General album discussion

    I still do think it's a great album, although not quite the masterpiece it was made out to be. I generally skip about 1/2 to 1/3 of the album when I listen to it.

    The Book of Souls: General album discussion

    I personally can't stand it. Don't get me wrong, I adore Rime, and it's one of my top 5 favorite Maiden tracks. If it weren't for that middle section, it would be my favorite Maiden track with a bullet. As it stands, I fast forward through it every time.

    Disc 1 vs Disc 2 (yeah, Travis is going to kill me)

    Disc one is better overall, however, disc two has EOTC. Hard choice, but I went with disc one.

    Shadows Of The Valley

    I love the melodies in this song, particularly towards the end. Could have done without the last chorus section, though. Still amongst my favorites on the album.

    The Great Unknown

    I honestly think this song should have been extended a bit. It kind of stops a little abruptly for me. Could have been a really good epic. Still a killer song. Love the chorus.

    By sandwiching a bunch of creaky boat bullshit into the middle of it? :P

    Empire feels like a much shorter song than TRATB, despite being quite a bit longer. Unlike TRATB, pretty much every part feels necessary and gives something to the song. THAT is how you do a long song.

    Empire of the Clouds would like a word with you.

    The Book of Souls: General album discussion

    Cut the intro riff by half, cut the beginning from 4 verses to 2 verses, remove one or two of the "Oooh" parts, cut the "Red and the Black" part by half, cut the riff where the tempo of the song picks up in half.

    The Book of Souls: General album discussion

    Basically it's way too long with too many repeating parts. Cut about 4 minutes off of it and it would be an infinitely better track IMHO.
  14. Brave New Pilgrim

    Best 1-2 opening salvo on a Maiden album?

    The correct answer is Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (Moonchild into Infinite Dreams).
  15. Brave New Pilgrim

    Your Maiden blasphemy

    Agree on To Tame a Land. While it's certainly a good song, it's nothing to write home about. Seems a little disjointed IMHO. Revelations is the true epic of Piece of Mind.

    Empire Of The Clouds

    The reason that I adore this track so much is that it just oozes with emotion. Honestly, I think this song resonated with me on an emotional level more than any other Maiden track I've ever heard. Definitely a top ten GOAT track for me. Hell, probably a top five.

    I disagree. While the production of Killers is obviously better than their debut, I still find it rather muddy and unpolished as compared with the sharp, crisp tone of TNOTB. One man's opinions. I am in the "Unpopular opinions" thread, right?
