Discuss your thoughts about "Speed Of Light" here!
After several listens to the whole album this song feels like it doesn't belong here. Maybe because I've heard it so many times before?I think this is an incredible song, and it really stands out on the album, as it's the only song on it which has a really upbeat feel to it. I just learned how to play this song today on guitar, and it is immense fun to play and sing along to as well. For me, it's the best lead single for a Maiden album since "Man On The Edge". It's just a very fun song, with a great sense of urgency, and a classic solo battle between Davey and H to top it off. It's definitely not out of place, or inferior when compared to the other songs on the album, with it's immediacy being a strength rather than a handicap.
