A symphonic opening leads to a cool guitar bit before we get the vocals. This song really succeeds at building atmosphere. There's tension, there's suspense, it's great. The frantic bit throws you right in the action and while the middle part has the most repetitive lyrics in any Maiden song, it only makes the song better. And then the solo section! This song has its weaknesses, yes, but it's also really great at the same stroke. 9
I really love this song ! It has an amazing melancholic intro (fantastic!), great riff/rhythm and even better twin-lead guitar harmonies, awesome chorus and after the repetition of the chorus (I don't find that annoying) the song really goes crazy - this part is amazing, so fast, brutally good solos from Janick and guitar harmony which is out of this world!!! I think I've read somewhere that Janick was not satisfied with this crazy ending to the song, but as Steve always says: ''at the end, they all agree with me''. 9/10.
