    There are some extremely nerdy buddies on this forum here.

    I’ll raise you 50 and say that Iron Maiden is timeless then.
    Somewhere in Time on the other hand is the worst thing Martin had to work with. I mean the guys brought in synths.

    So, if I understand correctly, you hate the sound of the album, but you praise the producer for saving it ?

    No, just the guitars
    And I praise Martin for still making the best out of it, so it didn't turn out a complete disaster :D

    SIT is "saved" by having a very healthy and dry drum sound, without the typical over-the-top 80's snare reverb, for example. So while the guitars have that chorusy sound, the rhythm section is actually very dry and natural sounding and tight as hell. Nicko's playing on that album is just out of this world.
