Wonder what Nush's ranking would be if a 1 wasn't "Maiden's worst" but "worst music there is", like I rate it. It's easy to see who appreciate the album most, though  :innocent:

"Worst music there is" or "worst music you've heard"? I find that system a lot more difficult to get my head around. But maybe it'd be somewhere about a 7.5 for NPFTD.

I'd say "worst music you are aware of". For me, a 1 means utter crap that has me switching off the radio or leaving the room. 4 (which is the lowest I've given for a Maiden song in the "Daily Song" ratings) means a song which is tolerable, but doesn't give me anything. 5 and 6 are enjoyable from time to time, and 7 upwards are different grades of good. That is, my average rating for NPFTD tells that I enjoy the album on occasions, but I don't find it a very good album.

Thanks for this translation. I was interested in it, as well. :)

I don't really enjoy this album in general...
and I especially don't like the overall flow of the tracks as they were originally sequenced.

In order to appreciate the album at all,
I actually prefer to listen to the songs in this particular order:

(Each song is followed by my personal rating)


Fates Warning - 5
Mother Russia - 4
Public Enema Number One - 5
No Prayer for the Dying - 5
Tailgunner - 3
Run Silent Run Deep - 4
Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter - 3
Hooks In You - 3

( The Assassin - 1 )
( Holy Smoke - 2 )

______________

I suppose that averages out to a 3.5 final score.

To be frank, looking at these two incredibly low ratings, I'm not that eager to read the review.

1/10 though? :p Even some of the worst Killers tracks are at least 2/10. ;) The chorus in Hooks is pretty enjoyable just as some of the instrumental bits. The song is really not that bad.
