I like it too! Very atypical, with the weird verse... I also like the instrumental part. Not better than a 6 for me, but a strong 6 it is!
Other than the fact that I give it a 10, these are my thoughts exactly.Oh my God, why? Just why? How this song gets so much hate is beyond me. I really don't get it. Maiden have done worse, way worse than this. But that's not even my point; even by Maiden's standards, this song is not even close to being bad. It's very... uncharacteristic, I'll give you that. But that doesn't make it bad. It's a great song! Has a nice groove and actually very thoughtful lyrics! I give this one a high 8.
The assassin ain't that bad. I quite like that song. This song on the other hand is just well.......pretty terrible, the solo's are OK (has a cool little fast riff).Horrible, just horrible. This is worse than The Assassin. It might not reach the same level of annoyingness, but it’s a nonsensical song. You can’t expect to release a song without a tune and get away with it. A band like them should be able to make up something better right there on the spot, in 1 minute. The lyrics are thoughtful but combined with the rest of the song they just make the whole mess worse. I’m trying to stay low on the marks for great song, so it’s only logical that I should do the same for terrible songs. 2/10
