    10/10. There are no weak points on BNW whatsoever. The whole thing is utterly amazing from start to finish.

    Severely overlooked track in my opinion. I also added this song to my "10 songs to make an album" list. In my opinion its one of their better recent uptempo rockers, mabe also the heaviest. it surpasses Different World, The Final Frontier and others in the same vein. Maybe only second to Wickerman.
     
  4. The Flash

    The Flash Dennis Wilcock did 9/11

    It's actually a 6,5 in my book but I gave it a 7 there.

    I'm not too familiar with Lizzy, is there a song in particular like that?

    It's vaguely reminiscent of Massacre, a song which Maiden also covered on the Can I Play With Madness single. But other than that... no, it just sounds like Lizzy, Jeff is right.

    I really like this song. For me, it's a 8/10. I like that arrogant, crunchy riff and the epic chorus. It's always quite uplifting to listen to this song  :rocker:

    I need to listen to more Lizzy.

    Wow those were awesome. Didn't think they could get that heavy with Emerald. I am definitely gonna check out Jailbreak

    Lizzy has become one of my favourite bands in the course of the last two years.

    6 out of 10... This tune is the low point of the album for me, but I can't say I dislike it. I usually listen to BNW in it's entirety, so I hear it a lot, but it's never been a favorite.

    One of the weakest on the album and their career... 5 because of the good energy.

    Twin brother song of The Mercenary. I like this song a little more (particularly the chorus), but it gets the same rating as its twin brother song - 8/10.

    8/10, a simple song but a very catchy tune, good performances, like the melodies.

    Solid song with a good chorus, but it has never struck me as anything special  I give it 7
     
  17. 7. Good song. Great chorus and solo. This song seems just kinda average though.

    I voted 7/10. Catchy and I love the vocals. I would say more towards an 8, actually.

    A promising song that suffers from odd vocal performance. Great chorus, especially the lead layer. The first triple solo!

    The most underrated song on the album, and I don't understand that at all!

    For me, the song is inspired, focused and it's rocking! The main riff is heavy, and the chorus is great, especially with the added lick in the background.
    Bruce performance is great, and I don't understand the criticism on the vocals. That, together with the lyrics, is a powerful combo. Bruce really developed himself as a vocalist during his solo career, and I hear inspiration from The Chemical Wedding on this one especially.
    The solos are fresh, and the key changes/tonality changes between each solo makes each solist stick out (An idea that the band used several times after this).

    An underrated gem in my ears, and a better song then The Wickerman in my opinion.

    8/10
