As you scream into the web of silence...
10/10. One of Maiden's finest songs ever. Definite Top 10 track. The mood is incredible, the lyrics incredible, this song is incredible. Yes.
I don't think it was put there at random. Staring at the water is like looking in a mirror, which fits the concept of the backward messages, and in a certain way Nicko can be warning the protagonist of the story not to be influenced by what he sees, which is most likely his and his lover's reflections in the pool.What's with the reversed Idi Amin intro? I'd understand it on a more silly song like DWYBO, but to me, it kind of kills the mood the song's going for, even if it is funny.
Yeah, still thinking the same. Kind of a forgotten song btw. I haven't heard much clamoring about it being brought back for a reunion tour.Lyrics are the strongest part of this song, one of Maiden's best. I like that "will give me peace of mind" part the most. 8/10.
