A song that will always have a special place in my heart, and in another lifetime would have been in my Top 40. Now though, I think it's a weaker song that's still fairly strong overall and features a pretty great chorus, but there are plenty of better ones out there. 6

Ah. Much better. Not that it was very difficult to be better than that last one. Alas, being much better than Quest for Fire means it's at least better than a sack of crap. What does it mean for the song on its own, though? Well, it's serviceable, there's nothing I hate here nor is there anything I particularly like here. Such songs get a 5/10.

Since I have my book to sell ( for supporting my old folks in Venezuela, this kind of post will be one of the lasts...


There's an Irish Flight Of Icarus mispress that states that the B side is 'Sun And Steel' but actually plays the proper B side which is 'I've Got The Fire'.

By buying my book you will get lots of trivia from every Maiden song and help me support my family who live in a country destoyed with hyperinflation

I would say that this song is underrated. Great tempo, rhythm and chorus. The twin-lead guitar harmony too. I always wondered why Adrian do not have a solo.../ The chorus is the best thing (though being so repetitive for such a short song). Overall. this is a nice song. 7/10

Used to be a much bigger fan of this one. It’s got a pretty big chorus for the kind of track it is, but over time it’s fallen for me. Not one of the great Smith/Dickinson tracks, but a step up from “Quest for Fire”. 7/10
