Btw, at the store (called FNAC, a really big european store) there were literally lines of people to get the album, it was really something to be seen. I asked the lady who gave me my pre-ordered BOS if it was selling well and she said it was almost the only thing they were selling since the doors opened 2 hours earlier
I predict that Maiden may well have a number one album at least here in Portugal with this one.
Also, as i was walking to the store, i saw some people in the street walking by as well with The Book Of Souls, it was incredible. Especially considering how low CD's are selling...
And we were all smiling at each other in the store with excitement for finaly having the new album in our hands. It was a really really cool vibe!
