It is "cleaner". But I agree, great lyrics and delivery!"I've lived in filth and I've lived in sin, but I still smell sweeter than the shit you're in!"
69. Losfer Words (Big 'Orra)
Lots of people say that this is Powerslave's only mishap, without this instrumental it would be a perfect album. I disagree. I think this song is a pretty good one, it feels like a Powerslave song, and I couldn't imagine it being on any other album.
And while we're at it, several past lists have also done albums worst to best, and this one is no different. Gonna start it off with, obviously, my least favorite of Maiden's 16 albums...
That's actually pretty much what I feel as well. Each album has a distinctive style of songs, and Losfer Words just feels like a Powerslave track.I think that what has rendered "Losfer Words" unpopular (to many) is the fact of hearing it again and again on DVD menus ("Visions of the Beast" and "Live After Death"). I like it a lot myself (it is one of the tracks that give me the impression of being "inside the sleeve cover" )
#16: Brave New World (2000) But yes, this is my least favorite Maiden album. Let the tomato throwing begin!
Remember that song "Kill Me"
Once used by a man from MaidenFans
He said Brave New World's the worst
Others gave him the look
Ain't no tomato big enough for me
Yep! Maybe not this song, but yeah, you should be seeing some of them soon.Does this mean you are including b-sides/covers?

#16: Brave New World (2000)
Lots of people love this album; as @LooseCannon already stated earlier on in this thread, it's the highest ranking album in popularity on this site from the 21st Century. And I have to say, The Wicker Man is one of the greatest album openers of all time. I love how the album begins. It's what comes after it that... well... I'm rather "meh" to. Sure, it's the first album with Bruce and Adrian again since 1992 and 1988 respectively, but it really feels like they were just really trying to achieve something here that to me feels kinda forced. I will say this though - Blood Brothers is really growing on me, I've found myself humming it out of the blue on occasion, and the album as a whole, whilst Maiden's most mediocre in my opinion is still heads and tails better than a lot of other albums by more mediocre artists. But yes, this is my least favorite Maiden album. Let the tomato throwing begin!
Don't think I forgot about this. I've taken a break for a bit because I need to re-listen to two songs, and I kept putting it off because I don't know why. I shouldn't have though, because they're great. The songs in question are...
68. Isle of Avalon
The Final Frontier (2010)
67. The Talisman
The Final Frontier (2010)
Both songs off of The Final Frontier, they're both great in their own right. Isle of Avalon has a great beginning, it feels a bit like the piece in Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, only at the beginning of the song. Whilst I personally feel that the quality goes down a bit once it really kicks in, that's just a tad - it's a great song the whole way through nonetheless.
The Talisman, on the other hand, start out nicely with acoustics, and even when the electric guitar kicks up, it's an excellent song. I honestly can't fault Loudwire for including it on their Top 10 for Maiden, and I feel that I could put it higher up on the list, but oh well.
All in all, great songs, very enjoyable, but The Talisman is just a bit better.
