Percussive crashes introduce a busy, driving riff that settles into a nice groove with the bass. This underpins a strong verse and a great rising pre-chorus that leads into an excellent chorus. Great interplay between the instruments throughout.

Another round of verse through chorus and we break into a bright interlude and a fantastic solo that gives way to a great softer bridge with some high "oohs" from Bruce and some variations on the title lyric. Awesome guitar atmospherics and bass work here.

A return to the opening riff carries us through another round of verse through chorus, before a series of excellent variations on the final chorus line carry us to the end along with some great soloing and a long final vocal note.

Such an excellent song. If the verse had been a little stronger this could have garnered another perfect score, but as it stands it's still a robust 9/10.

Another gem on Somewhere in time. Chorus is great and the second half of this song is really beautiful. 9

At one point in time, this was a Top 5 Maiden song for me, but it's falling quite a lot since then. A great chorus and beautiful mid-section hold it up well, but I dislike Bruce's singing on the verses and as a whole it doesn't stand out enough among the band's discography to remain a favorite. Strong, but not the best. 7
