Best metal cd of the year? Yes. Of the decade (so far)? Top 5 probably for me
I dunno, it's pretty neck-and-neck with Ghost's Meliora.
The holy trinity of the album definitely are TRATB, TBOS and EOTC - these songs are in their own league.
The songs that brings the classic sounding of Maiden are SOL and DOG.
The song that has essential Maiden parts/elements in it is WTRRD ...... and DOG too.
A unique song in the album is TOAC.
The traditional slow/mid tempo song (which appears to be the ballad of the album) is TMOS.
The ''mystic'' songs that fit perfect the atmosphere and the theme of the album are IESF, TGU, SOTV ..... and the jewel of the whole album - the title track.
I'm the opposite. I really like River but hate DOG.
I love DOG but dislike WTRRD.
DOG is a masterpiece of a short rocker; WTRRD is good but better on the album than outside it.
DoG is neither good on the album or outside it.
It's corny and really a nothing song. Nothing interesting about it whatsoever.
IMYO it's 'nothing to write home about' category
WTRRD is great, sounds fresh, dynamic and a welcome change of pace after TRATB
Pretty much this right here for me as well. TRATB and EOTC are just a little above TBOS though.
Best Songs IMO:
The Book Of Souls
The Red And The Black
The Great Unknown
When The River Runs Deep
If Eternity Should Fail
Death Or Glory
Empire Of The Clouds
Tears Of A Clown
