A nice, straightforward and simple song that wins a lot live... as Jonszat said, this would have been the better "Wrathchild". It's a good song to get you pumped, although it may not do too much else. But then, does every song have to? 8/10.
9 out of 10... LOVE THAT RIFF! As relatively uncomplicated as this tune is, the powerful opening grabs me and shakes me and doesn't let go... every time. I find that high volume levels are a requirement to fully appreciate this one. This was the first song I learned to play off POM...
A fun song. Used to be my favorite song when I was younger, and I used to think the line was "To ashes his Brain!" Given the whole lobotomy thing and the brain bit in the musical video. Today I still enjoy it, I like to play it on guitar, but I don't go out of my way to listen to it either. Like most of the Piece Of Mind album (which was on repeat constantly when I was younger) this song brings back good memories. 9/10
One of the first songs that really grabbed me as I was discovering Maiden. Powerful vocals from Bruce (the "Let it go!" on Live After Death is brilliant too), and some stunning solos. When Dave starts mangling that B string from 3:19 on I usually get a strong mental image of Icarus flapping wildly as he drops.
I never really cared for this song, I'm not sure why really now that I look back. I haven't been able to get this song out of my head the last few weeks. It is straight forward, but it is just a great song. Glad I finally warmed up to it!
Not totally sold on this one. The chorus don't do that much for me, and I have some difficulties for Bruce's Performance though out the song.
But the solos are good, and I like the lyrics. The outro is really cool to, when the guitars blend into the vocals.
