Here is an interesting observation. It's not a bad thing at all. Just something I noticed. I could be wrong since I don't have the structure of every song completely down yet, but I don't think I'm hearing a final verse at the end of any song. They either end with the chorus or solo/instrumental part. If that's the case, that would be a first for Maiden, correct?
I think that Empire ends with a verse, the one about "the dream lives on", doesn't it?
