But let's be honest, that's not the way Iron Maiden have been going on their last three albums.
Triple album please!
Technically speaking, TBOS was a triple album, just not on CD.
Eight songs would be perfect.
One does have to wonder... every album since VXI has been longer than the last, so where will Maiden go after their double album? Triple would make sense...
Double album which is a bit longer probably. If they go there. But I wouldn't be surprised if we get a album around TFF length. How many 18 minute epics can Bruce conjure up? EOTC was probably a once in a lifetime song. Or..?
Since 'Arry's finally writing 10+ minute epics again, I wouldn't be too surprised if he came up with the notion that Bruce's epic needed to be topped, lol.
Next step: 25-minute song.
Please no. TBOS is the Maiden album I feel least connected to (or somethin) and I put it down to it being a double album. Like the songs, dont like the length. Can never be fucked lisyenlistening the whole way through

Isn't there a sub-forum for this?
Nah, I don't see a subforum labeled "the trash can" anywhere here.
I completely agree with you position, but to be precise, BL has toured 6 times since 2013 and since their album was released, Maiden has released one; and the second BL one is ready.
To be honest I didn’t actually look up the BL tours, just ballparked it from memory. But I did say “last ten years” which means Maiden had TFF and TBOS.
The director of Blade Runner 2049 and The Arrival is doing a new film version of Dune, Iron Maiden could do the soundtrack.
