I'm with Mosh all the way on this. Yes, Maiden has followed this pattern for a long time as of late, but something about the way the tracks are arranged on TXF just doesn't work for me. The melancholy production and droning vocals don't help. At least with Bruce at the helm, we'll get an octave jump when the intro ends. Blaze's limited range (and the band's unwillingness to cater to his range) make TXF a very boring listen. Honestly, the energy and production on VXI is vastly superior, but the songs aren't as good (save for a couple). It's a well known fact that I am not a fan of the Blaze albums. He never fit with Maiden, IMO, regardless of how classic some of those recordings may be. Steve's depressing musicality during that time is probably more so to blame than Blaze, but either way, TXF does not have the same dynamics as the reunion albums, regardless of the song structure.
