A pretty amazing run of uptempo lead work breaks into an excellent riff that supports a strong verse and a better, tension-building pre-chorus. This unfortunately breaks into a disappointingly blah and repetitive chorus.
Another round of verse through ho-hum chorus, and some amazing guitar gymnastics break into a bouncy harmonized section punctuated by an excellent solo, then a melodic lead section punctuated by a brief but great solo.
Another round of verse through chorus leads into a great bridge before falling back into the "meh" chorus and ending on a really awkward fast-paced vocal outro.
This is a mostly superb song that's ultimately brought down by a really weak chorus and outro. It's a shame, because those weaknesses knock it all the way down to an 8/10.
Yet another great fiery riff opens this song before Bruce lays down a shining example of his vocal talents for us - this song is rife with them. Great instrumental section, great music - this song is simple but so effective. Some sequels are worse than the original, but this return to The Prisoner tale is heads and feet above its predecessor. 10
I like the tempo of the song (one of the fastest Maiden songs). The verses are great, but the chorus is meh. Good harmonies. I like the two screams. If it wasn't for this chorus, my rating would have been higher. I still like the song though. 7/10
