You don't need glasses to fly a plane. Surely you can get a guide dog, who's been trained to fly a plane, to sit on your lap to fly it for you?In my 41st year on Planet Earth, I've finally been told that I need to get glasses. If I want to get my pilot's medical certificate renewed, that is ...
I quoted you here because I don't want to go off-topic in the JP thread.I respect your opinion. In my eyes, Virtual XI, as an album, is horrible. Futureal and The Clansman is very good, the rest - crap. Sorry.
Why don't you like the other songs? You don't like Blaze's vocals or his performance? What about the music?
I suspect why you don't like ''The Angel And The Gambler'' and ''Don't Look To The Eyes Of A Stranger'' - because of the repetition. Without it, these are very good songs and I like them, especially the latter.
''Lightning Strikes Twice'' - fast rocker with a great moody intro, verses, riffs, drumming and solos. The chorus could have been better, but it's not bad. You probably don't like it? The build-up of the song is quite good.
''When Two Worlds Collide'' - now that's a gem for me. The song fits Blaze's voice and it has a galloping tempo, great intro, solos and amazing melodies. Maybe you don't like the chorus? I like it a lot.
''The Educated Fool'' - maybe you don't like the unusual pre-chorus? I like it, it's something different. The rest of the song is great imo (solos, melodies). I'm a fan of the chorus, it's really impactful.
''Come Estais Amigos'' - you don't like ballads? Everything is great in it imo (especially the intro and melodies). Maybe you don't like the way Blaze sings the chorus... ''no more teeeeeeeeears''? Btw, No More Tears is a good title for the song, but atypical for Maiden I guess.
