This is one of the rare cases where the verses are best part of the song. I wish this song didn't have such a generic chorus. Still solid 9/10

This is the most classic Maiden sounding song on the album. Fantastic pre-chorus which is better than the actual chorus, very good riff and twin-lead guitar harmony, both solos are great and I like the groove on it. A future classic for the band, could easily fit on the Powerslave album.

Aces High -> Tailgunner -> Death Or Glory .... evolution. :lol::p

10/10.

As you scream into the web of silence...
Disc 2 of the album opens with a cool drum / guitar piece that crashes into one of the coolest riffs Maiden have done in a long time. This leads straight to the first verse, and. holy. shit. is. it. incredible. My god! This song just completely takes the concept of a verse and annihilates it, it's that good. Bruce throws you right into the cockpit of a triplane and unleashes you into the aerial war zone like I've never heard another song do. The lyrics on the verses are incredibly vivid and I just really, really love it. On any other song, the pre-chorus and chorus would be weaker, but somehow they just keep going with the momentum the verses have built up. And the solos on here... goddamn, they're some of the best the band has done since who knows how long. This song is awesome, a successor to both "Aces High" and "Tailgunner" and a worthy one in every way. 10

Another great Maiden single (ok it didn't get a physical release but it would have if it had have been released 10 years earlier), I suspect we might hear this live again. Love the relentless rhythm section in this song, and it's good fun. Slide guitar solo is a touch of genius. 10/10

Fantastic song! It would have definitely been a single in the 80s. 9/10
