    This is a good point. Most of my favorite Maiden songs early on were the ones that told stories (Dance of Death, The Trooper, Powerslave etc). In many ways Empire is the pinnacle of storytelling in Maiden.

    Going for Empire, for the sheer strength of its storytelling

    The problem for Starblind is that, however it is portrayed, Empire has a story. An impressive historical story. It's hard to put up a fight against that (bias).

    And Empire of the Clouds takes it by the slimmest of margins.
    A fitting choice in my view: a grand, epic, story that perfectly fits with the soundscape — quintessentially Maiden.
    Thanks everyone for playing.

    Thanks for hosting! The right song won and, as I said, it was appropriate that the two finalists were Bruce songs.

    At least Starblind made it to the Final so I didn't have time to lose my feelings for this game. :p

    Thanks for hosting. I still have problems accepting the song on a Maiden album, but the lyrics are awesome and it won deservedly.

    While I would have preferred to have Starblind win it all, I can't say I'm disappointed in the overall results. :)
