    1.5, i'd have to say... The quality's crap, the volume is very low, and I don't quite know all of the British sayings that they use. It's not quite as enjoyable, since I have to read along to know what the hell they're saying. It is not something that I'd enjoy listening to every so often...I heard it the one time, and that's all I need.

    To be saying such things on a site owned by Maverick, an Archbishop in the Church of Adrian Smith, is tantamount to heresy. You really ought to know better.

    By the way, I gave it 2 stars. It was very entertaining the first couple of times I heard it, but it isn't the kind of thing I have much desire to hear again. However, I will admit it has one of the best endings of all Maiden releases.

    That's probably because you have problems understanding proper English! [!--emo&:p--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/tongue.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'tongue.gif\' /][!--endemo--]

    oooh I know Brother Freaky. So many following a false prophet, but after all it is written only a select few will know Him and enter His kingdom. In the name of 'Arry, Amen

    I didn't say I couldn't understand it; I said it has little to no replay value for me.

    Furthermore, we both know that your version of English is nothing but a bunch of Cockney slang. Just because I can't make heads or tails of what you're saying doesn't have any relation to my understanding proper English.

    I will have to agree. It would be funny to hear a real song end like it.

    BTW, it looks like the Holy Inquisitor has some work to do. Set up the stakes!

    Even better than the original... err... song is [a href=\'http://www.angelwitch.immortals.co.uk/pages/music%20pages/i/iavi.htm\' target=\'_blank\']this[/a] transcript I found which has all profanity edited out. It makes the whole thing even more hilarious, I think.

    It’s truly pointless but pretty funny and quite telling about the personality of the band that they would release this on an official single. A nice bit of lunacy that ends with Steve finding the tape recorder.

    Lack of a guitar solo is the tracks weak point. Bruce does a very good job on this one. Great opening and ending.
