Hmmm On third listen. I'm still not sure. There's some cool stuff for sure. BOS, IESF EOTC, but a fair amount of it is just not catching me.
I don't knowo_O Keep listening of course. But my feeling at the mo, is BNW and AMOLAD are considerably better. I 'll make a more fair assesmant later
Im on my second listen right now. Still reserving judgement. My first impression was that there were some "possibly cool" melodies taking place that I couldn't make out. But I know I still need time with it
F*@king hell. I'm done. Its 4:51 am. Just finished EOTC.
My mind is a jumble of mad impressions. EOTC was unbelievable. But such a hard album to grasp. Needs more time.
I'll set my alarm for a morning of BOS with coffee :D
I think so. But its soooo much. And its all go go go, barely takes a breath. Wondering if it needs a breath/ or some light and shade somewhere. But I know from past experiences these albums take time to blossom..Think I need a break before I go to the last 3 songs. Phew!
5...hours...to miiiiiidniiiiight. At least in Hong Kong. If I can't find the physical copy today, at least iTunes album may appear shortly after
12. I hope. OMG OMG OMG OMFG! Heeheeheee. I'm super psyched after watching this forum and all the amazing reviews recently.
My hands will threaten...
Good spot there. Yea I'd say BNW title would get lost against future city at the bottom. Powerslave was a nice design decision. Wasn't too into the side logo on FOTD. I also think that DOD cover looks ok as a tiny iTunes listing. It's just when you blow it up you go :facepalm:
Thanks for posting these uptheirons. As I'm still holding out on hearing the album until Friday, this is great to read. Soo happy Maiden are creating tunes with this kind of ancient/demonic/harvesty imagery again. :devil2:
