And to add more: ''The Ghost Of Cain'', ''Eternal'', ''Real World'', ''Winds Of Change'' (the electric version, co-written by Janick), ''Fire Child'' is not bad and ''Cadillac Gas Mask'' is a fun rock song ... not to mention ''Broken'' and especially ''Silver Wings'' from his best of album.Bruce has many great B´sides like Return Of The King, The Breeding House and Armchair Hero fits into this category too.
Yup. He expected the UK government and the EU to both independently put his own industry's interests first? No matter if you're liberal, conservative, or somewhere in the middle, that's just plain naive thinking. Would've been a good opportunity for him to admit that the whole thing was a mistake...
Too much on the harsher type vocals and not enough good singing melodic type which makes it quite a weak song for me.''Armchair Hero'' is one of the many great bonus songs of Bruce. It is a bonus song to the Skunkworks album and if it was added to it, it would have been the best song in the album imo. Should have been added.
Maybe it was not added because Bruce played the original version of the song called ''Share It Or Lose It'' (good version too, but not a better one) during the Balls to Picasso tour.
I like the song, but it would be nowhere near the best one on the album for me. “Strange Death In Paradise” is sublime, “Solar Confinement”, “Inside The Machine”, and “Innerspace” are killer, and “Faith” and “Meltdown” are really strong too. “Armchair Hero” might hold its own against the rest of the album, but not those 6 songs.Too much on the harsher type vocals and not enough good singing melodic type which makes it quite a weak song for me.
