A few years ago this was my favourite track from Brave New World and it was actually in my Top 10 for some time. Recently I've found that I don't hold it in such high regard anymore, now Ghost of the Navigator has taken its place as my favourite from the album.

I think the clean verses are brilliant, probably the best use of acoustic guitar in Janicks epics and I really like the way that we get a clean version of the pre chorus before the heavier take later on. It's in the heavier section that I think the song loses its way, it does drag a little and I find the fast "I only dream in black and white" a bit awkward. Great harmonies though, and another great solo from Janick. A nice return to the acoustic section and then we're finished.

What once was a ten is now a respectable eight.

Heard it again today after quite some time. I think that the most annoying thing has to be the drumming after all. Cool melodies though.

Instrumental section is one of their best. Chorus as well. But the verses are not, which is the reason Dream of mirrors only gets 9/10

As you scream into the web of silence...
"Dream of Mirrors" is really strong. Starting heavy before going soft and then building itself back up before exploding into one of Maiden's best choruses ever, it really doesn't let up. Even the faster change-up is good, and my only real complaint is that afterwords the final chorus isn't as good as the first two rounds of it. Still, a really great song. 9

Great opening to the song. The melody with the acoustic guitar is fantastic. The verses are great, but the chorus is better. The highlight of the song is definitely the fast part in the middle with great drumming, melodies, triple-lead guitar harmony and the ''oh-oh'' part. The solo from Janick is good too. Live, the song is better.... ''The dream is true''.... 10/10
