It sounds like something from FOTD, and I don't mind that at all. I'm still grasping for what the chorus reminds me of. Not Maiden or even metal I think, it's some other song from way back.After spending some more time with the track I take back what I said about the solo. It fits quite well and is not that weak, though could be better .
Yeah, we know that melody, but where the hell is it from?It sounds like something from FOTD, and I don't mind that at all. I'm still grasping for what the chorus reminds me of. Not Maiden or even metal I think, it's some other song from way back.
To me, playing the vocal melody on guitar works far better on Stratego than on The Red And The Black (where it annoys me to this day).Bruce did an outstanding work. He sounds as good as early 00's. What i don't like about the song is Janick playing the vocal melody on guitar (kind of similar to TRATB )
I do think he nailed it with the solo. I do hear that his solos are pretty much similar to his past stuff but it actually synchs in well with the mood and melody of the track. It is a bit of a dark song and I think his solos actually fit these dark mood songs well. His solo sounds very similar to that of ghost of the navigator.
I think he said in his book that he first went to a doctor in Paris during the recording of TBOS.Didn’t he say he already had the tumor when they were recoding TBOS? I remember him saying he wanted to finish the recording and not having it looked at because he was afraid they wouldn’t let him finish.
I notice the place starts to die down around this time. Am I the only one in the US?
