I actually quite like the album cover, even if it does look like a power metal album cover.
I'm happy  :p :bigsmile:

Now, to be honest - the new song sadly isn't anything very special at all.
Nowhere near a new Trooper, Hallowed or what have you.
Pretty solid rock, but totally not a new classic.  And Bruce sounds horribly strained on the high tunes again, like he has on the last few albums. Sorry guys, this band just WAS better before!

Interesting beginning, over all quite different, but it still sounds like Maiden.  Bruce's singing doesn't sound that great though.

The track list sounds like Bruce had a huge role in lyrics or naming the songs.  Most of those sound like they could be Bruce Dickinson songs instead of Maiden songs.  El Dorado also sounds a lot like a Bruce song.  Steve's monopoly is over? 

The cover has somewhat the same feel as Flight 666, but I just don't like it that much yet.  Maybe it'll grow.

BTW, whose solos are they? To me, sounds like Adrian at 3:45 and Janick the one after that.

PS. Thanks Rokyronnie. :ok:

The solos are Adrian, Dave, then *sigh*, Janick..

You're welcome.
The song is great, a lot of gallop, great bass tone.
UP THE IRONS
And good night to all, or what's left of.

H is first.
I think it's Dave then Janick after that.

God this song is Aweosme. And I agree, the titles do sound like Bruce material.
I'm gonna listen to this all day tomorrow.

Oops, I somehow missed Dave's solo in the middle, I thought it was part of Adrian's.

This is definitely a Bruce inspired song, imo. Sounds like 1 of the 3 bonus tracks from Chemical Wedding but I'm not sure which.

Also, I'm working on lyrics ;)

Were you really expecting that? You've been told for YEARS that it wasn't going to be that way.

It is a good, solid, representative Maiden song from THIS line-up and era. However, I'm disappointed that the song wasn't about my grandpa's 1972 Cadillac Eldorado! :p

I have to admit, the lyrics are VERY cheesy.  :p

I dunno, I don`t like it. The intro is completely pointless, and the only part I liked was the chorus. The rest is kinda dumb and...meh.

The pre-chorus freaks me out!
