    An awesome chorus and good verses, though the solos are pretty average.
     
  2. I can tell that this song was trying so hard to be more grand than it ultimately ended up being. I can neither like it nor dislike it. It's so-so. 7/10

    Well, there are several cool ideas but nothing great. The intro solo is good as always but doesn't seem to belong to the song. The verses and chorus are good but it just feels a little bit flat to be honest. Still enjoy it thou and think that this album is underrated.

    6/10

    7. Hidden gem of a song with some very enjoyable guitar parts and a good chorus.

    I like the song as well as the album. Its very consistent to me but may not be the strongest statement. Its really the sound of a band in transisition and this song is emblematic of the album its on.

    6/10 for me but the album is a 6/10.

    This song is incredibly average except for the lovely solos and Steve Harris' playing. 6/10

    A quiet, wailing lead opens Fates Warning, another incredibly strong track written by Dave Murray. Once the song gets going the intro feels a bit tacked-on, but it works in the grand scheme of things. Fates Warning has the single best chorus on the album, neither repetitious nor simple, it’s an unexpected moment of fist-pumping greatness. There’s a killer guitar unison right before Janick’s solo, which is quite subdued and enjoyable.

    I can't help but think that this was supposed to be deeper than it was. 7/10.

    Murray is going for two on this album with a song that starts with that unmistakeable bluesy soloing. Very reminiscent of later songs like Ben Breeg and Man of Sorrows. This is another one I really enjoy. Love the way the guitars work with Bruce's vocals in the verses and Steve has that signature gallop going. Great chorus and I really dig the bridge. The held chords over Steve's bass gallop gives it a unique flavor. Awesome twin harmony toward the end.

    Another song on this album which starts off nicely with some good atmosphere but then rapidly goes nowhere. Awful shouty chorus.

    The opening is all right, and when the song gets going it remains all right. In fact, it feels like a 7. So I'm giving it a 6. Why? Because it's only all right. It's far from a memorable song, just one you get into while it's playing and then you can forget about its existence. Interestingly, it feels like a POM and SSOASS song combined together, which is interesting, but like I said, it's only all right. 6/10.
