Best cover ever by Iron Maiden. And I'm not saying this lightly.

Being a fan of UFO, I was amazed at this song when I first heard it because I actually found it better than the original !

As you understood, it's one of my favorite tune and it shows how powerful and emotional the voice of Blaze is.

They should have written VXI with this in mind.

Masterpiece: 5 stars.

What a rocker gem! I love the smooth guitars, headbanging rhythm section and, of course Blaze. He is really amazing on this one - the slickness in his voice, especially when he sings moment, situation etc. at the end of verses, goes well with the guitars. And, also the nice drumming, especially during the chorus, as well as in my favourite "classic" rock ending.

As for the original by UFO, it is indeed excellent. I just like the fact that Maiden has more smoothness and a better voice to go with it.

Agreed yet again, great song originally and the Maiden version takes the song, shakes it up, and adds more atmosphere and better guitar parts and a tightness and togetherness that was missing in the UFO version.


I simply adore Maiden's cover of this song. It's a song that's an important part of their history anyway, and the elegance and poise that they deliver it with is remarkable. I think Blaze does a terrific job with the vocals, and it's easily one of my favourites from his period with the band.


Such a cool cover of UFO classic. Agree about tightness and togetherness that was missing on original version.
