    10/10, My second favourite Maiden opener, I never tire of hearing it. Full on, powerhouse rocking tune, Maiden at their best.

    It starts great, but I only like the beginning and the chorus. Other parts are forgettable. 6/10.
  3. Jupz

    Jupz Ancient Mariner

    I can't stand the chorus of this song, but the verses and intro are ok. 5/10.

    Great intro, awesome instrumental section, love the use of scales in the verse. But for some reason I already voted a 6. Can I change to a 9?

    7. Solid opener. I don't get the hate for the chorus of this song, I'm fine with it. Solo rocks.
  6. Forostar

    Forostar Conjure the Death Star again

    I'll count a 9 because it's your first post.

    An 8 ... strong opener.

    wizard Invader

  9. Tron

    Tron Trooper

    VERY fillery and a poor opener by opener standards. the chorus is disjointed and not enjoyable and the whole thing just doesnt prepare you well for how much better the rest of the album is. 6  as its still ok, suffers unfairly from its album and placement in it
  10. Murder89

    Murder89 Officer Friendly

    Underrated song.It's a nice opener that ''unfortunately'' had to open an album filled with monsters. 9/10
  11. Zare

    Zare Dream of broken citadels

    Filthy fast opener with some good riffs, but not as substantial as most of the other tracks on the album.
  13. 10. I think it starts the album out great. It has a really unique bass line. This is one of my favorite rockers.
  14. Revelations85

    Revelations85 Trooper

    8/10. Awesome bass line.
  15. Viperlord

    Viperlord Nomad

    7/10. Not great, but solid, with a nice bass line and a good solo.
  16. Check the Declination!

    Check the Declination! Working on my PHD in Maiden

    I feel like this is one of IMs most underrated songs. Personally I thinks it's great beginning to end. Also, a great Maiden trivia question is to name the 6 actions of the Invaders!
  17. I won't answer it, but excellent question! Especially the final one where I thought he was shouting another man's name. "Invaders.........RANDY"
    8/10, but like Vikings so that bumps it to 8.5.
  18. Out of curiosity what is your favorite?

    Bring on the flames, but I really cannot stand this song. The intro is awesome, the music is often quite good, but the chorus is so grating I can't even make it through the whole song. One of the only Maiden tracks with Bruce that I will give a "1."
  20. What what?! I'm up. Let's go!
    O Bruce! Where have you been! This guy Paul was on the last two albums and he was mainly good, but yeah. He's not you.
    Belt it loud and proud. Invadaaahs! It's in your face and taking no prisoners.
    This song is as good of an album intro as you can get and it's unfortunate that so many others don't like it.
