Even with the repetition, this falls into the category of "a good song".
With all the other 9+ minute Maiden songs to choose from, this is the one that has that effect for you while driving? Interesting.Some people hate this song. I am not one of them. I enjoy it for what it is, even if it is very repetitive. Sometimes that's not so bad, when it's a song that just feels like a long highway drive. I have put this song on during long highway drives and 9 minutes slips away in a flash - that's a certain kind of magic.
