This song just gets worse ever time I listen to it. Di'Anno sounds really bad, it attempts a lot of introspective stuff and tries to create an atmosphere but never gets anywhere. Some lyrical things are rather questionable ("I shall return from out of the... oh?") and as a whole it's just pointless. I get why a lot of people like this, but I... don't. One of their worst songs. 1

Do you prefer the live version with Bruce or is the difference negligable as you still don't like the song?
The live version is a bit better than the studio one, but I still think it's a poor song overall.


Chasing Ponce De Leon's Phantoms
I'm just baffled as to why you gave it a one though. It's one of Maiden's early classics. Judging by the ratings, a good majority of the forum would agree. It's one of the most heartfelt songs they've done, a tremendous peak in the middle. Davey also has one of my personal favorite solos in this song.

I just think you should explain a bit better why this song is so deserving of a one.

Because I just don't like it. As far as Maiden goes, this is the absolute abyss. I get that people love it, but I really, really don't. The middle section kills whatever atmosphere it was trying build up, the lyrics are trying to create something that isn't there, and the music is quite icky. The riff that follows the verses is decent, but would have been better used in another song. In short - it's as bad as Maiden have ever gotten, to my ears.

Out of the Silent Planet
Good song. The highlights are the verses and the fast middle part with the solos. Great end to the song with the screams (when they are done by Bruce, ofc). The song is way better live - the version from Ullevi is unsurpassable. Early classic. 8/10


Educated Fool
The lyrics for this song were written by Di’Anno and according to
himself, concern his grandfather, although their meaning is unclear. The same
has also stated that the title phrase is an opinion which
often used by his grandfather to emphasize its importance
optimism, planning and insight.
It has been supported, without ever being confirmed by the band,
that Di’Anno’s grandfather was a pilot of the Royal Air Force
Britain during World War II. This version helps to
interpret some of the lyrics, such as “scan the horizon the clouds take me
higher, I shall return from out of the fire! ” which can be considered as
words of a pilot or the reference to the "eye that sees everything", which can
perceived as a simulation of an airplane headlight.
It has also been argued that the lyrics seem to describe them
illusions and emotional transitions of someone who smokes
opiate or cannabis drugs.
