    10! This song is simply one of the best Maiden songs ever. No word can describe the epicness of this song.

    Outstanding vocals, powerful riffs and varied sections make the song an enthralling journey.
  10. 10. Bruce does this song justice with his emotional vocals. The solo is one of my favorites.

    10/10. Bruce is on fire here, pouring emotion into the song's evocative lyrics. Adrian's solo is superb as well.

    One of my favorites. I love everything about this song. Considering that I think Invaders is an audio abortion, I see this as Maiden's first gem with Bruce. Simply great.
  14. Wow my blood is pumping. Let's slow it down. It's okay though, this one is epic. More great vocals from Bruce. I absolutely love that howl of his. The vocals alone give this one a 10.

    This one is good! Soulful and really impressing performance from Bruce here, aswell as a superb solo by Mr Adrian Smith. The song is well structured and takes you on a journey which for me is really important. Ends with one of Bruces best and highes full-voice notes and leaves the listener with shivers.

    Brilliant performance from Bruce on this one; the emotion he puts into every line is spectacular. Instrumentally, it's full of beautiful melodies and a memorable solo from H. A true classic in every way.

  17. Pand

    Great vocals, a great chorus, a great H solo, a great ending. All adds up to a very strong...

    Great song. Some fantastic soloing and great vocals.

    This is such a great song. Very emotional and very good melodies topped with some good lyrics. I also like how it's kept compact, I could easily see this song passing 7 or 8 minutes if it was done today (not necessarily a bad thing, of course) and I think it adds a lot to the song that it doesn't. I think it's a little strange/sad that they haven't played it more often live, but then again, they try to keep the amount of slower songs down I guess, and they have quite a few others to choose from.

    Nothing's changed here for me, still a 10/10. Fantastic song, I love it.
