Come on... don't be picky! Especialy with The Prophecy, a complete masterpiece! (IMO, along with TLOTLDR both are by far the most underrated Maiden tunes ever). As much I'm a bit tired The Evil That Men Do and a couple other songs one must admit the whole album is stellar in every single aspect.My only real issues with “The Prophecy” are the plodding verses and the non-chorus.
Randalf said:Iron Maiden: still to come...
Killers: around 7.5
The Number of the Beast: around 8
Piece of Mind: around 9 or even above?
Powerslave: Another 9? I just hate 1-10 and how hard it is to properly score these masterpieces..
Somewhere in Time: 9 (?)
It has a sort of lazy "swing" feel to it that I like a lot, and not enough Maiden songs have that. I'm not musically inclined enough to describe what I'm hearing better but Prophecy is fantastic. Especially that acoustic outro.
My only real issues with “The Prophecy” are the plodding verses and the non-chorus. The rest is excellent.
That was one of the first things that stuck out to me about that song when I first got into Maiden. It’s so wacky that for a long time I genuinely believed someone else sung that line. But also I’m damned if I don’t love it anyway.I’ve never noticed how absurdly silly Bruce’s voice becomes on the line “In this world or the next” in CIPWM.
Come on, they basically wrote the song from start to the end of the 1st solo, then put "da capo" on the sheet music. How long could it have possibly taken? 3 hours? Not a bad song, but its status seems evident to me, also the fact that they did not play it live rings some bells.Only The Good Die Young a filler?
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son 6.5 - good intro, boring song, pointless stadium choirs, boring interlude, huge ending; Nicko rules
Only the Good Die Young 6.5 - clearly a filler
Seventh Son goes like this:SSOASS boring song...
