For 100 yrs people will say that reunion era is classic and that is best Maiden era overall
The lyrics and vocal melodies. This is what Harris does when he co-writes a song. They made it clear several times. For instance, he wrote a first version of TBoS and "lost" it, having to write another vocal melody. I would love to hear this first version he was very plesed with.I think Jan brings the riffs and melodies and Steve puts them together to flow like a song and writes the lyrics.
Can't wait to hear ''Days Of Future Past''. I expect an amazing chorus (again), riffs, melodies and a brutal solo from Adrian.From the track by track superfan review I realized one thing guys:
We already really really like Stratego and this is what he said about Days of Future Past!!!
At this point, we’ve reached what is the strongest song yet (and not just because it’s a short one), as Senjutsu begins its fast-rising upward arc."
We are in for an absolutely incredible song if its even better than Stratego. I can't even imagine this scenario. So hyped!!!!

Btw, he was also right that ''Stratego'' has a big DOD vibe - BNW vibe too, I'd say.
The instrumental part after the guitar solo is indeed eastern sounding to me. Other than that, I can't hear any DOD or BNW here, only Bruce solo material. I wanted to say, in Stratego. Great stuff nevertheless!One of the reviews quoted that it’s got an Eastern-like melody. Can’t wait to hear it.
The same people who complain about that stuff totally ignore the throwback songs they do get, and say they aren't good either. Like Death or Glory, which was a very strong song in the short, rocker vein - but it still wasn't good enough.
I'll say this much: There was a lot of negativity about all Maiden releases, but it's been on the rise exponentially. What we are witnessing right now does not compare to the period before TBOS. People never counted bars or talked about shifting tracklists of an album they haven't heard yet or editing songs before. I don't know if people have gotten more neurotic during the pandemic or if it's because they have had all their, erm, 'critical thinking' jammed up in them for six years and need to get them all out at once, or because everyone thinks their opinions matter now, but it's getting really bad. If I were Maiden and saw the meltdown, I'd just go, "Okay, you people obviously don't want the album, so you won't get it. We'll play the full Powerslave album next tour instead."
It is not a joke tho. It is a quote. It sounds cringy but that line gets lots of hate and I think it doesn't deserve it.
I think that issue with Death and Glory is in low esteem of some fans. They just cant stand that someone will associate them with song that has line 'monkey out of hell'.
I think that the line should be read in the sense of "climb out of hell like a monkey". Because monkeys are fast climbers and to someone living in 1914 it was a pretty apt comparison.
