Yup. For any newbies... There is a topic for that and put the spoilers in the posts even there. This is a clean topic. Until friday or as mods say.Could you please put any impressions in spoiler tags at least? There are a lot of posters who'd rather wait until friday to listen to the album.
I don't know how reviews and impressions could be considered as spoilers. I mean, it's impossible for me to imagine the music, the melody, the guitar riffs and solos and the rhythm by reading those reviews or impressions. I'm ok reading them, they make me even more excited about the new album.
Those who liked X Factor and Virtual XI will like Senjutsu. Other Maiden fans will need many listening sessions to get overall opinion that is really hard to get this time with Senjutsu. Also if Senjutsu was their last it would be a perfect send offIt won't split the fanbase for those who love the "reunion" era. But i can see the play more classics older fans hating this one.
Sounds familiar,for the last few albums there have been more songs than before that needed more spins to get my full appreciation.Maybe that characterizes newer Maiden and isn't a bad thing in itself (the age old dilemma,instant hit or grow and longevity)Those who liked X Factor and Virtual XI will like Senjutsu.

Absolutely. That's what I'm noticing as well, and loving. TBOS was very disjointed to my ears. I best can compare this situation to when Metallica released Death Magnetic and for all it's great things it's a mess. Hardwired that came eight years later was much more focused, imo.They're very focused on this album, especially when compared to TBOS
