  1. The Flash

    The Flash Dennis Wilcock did 9/11

    • Nothing more than an intro to Wrathchild. Some exciting guitar work that does a good job preparing for the rest of the album.
    • I don't think it sounds incomplete, it sound complete for what it is: An intro. Skippable but not particularly weak.

    It's a great intro. Good guitar work. Great to an album.

    I think this is a great intro, it worked well on the live shows and it works well here. It doesn't feel like a complete song and I don't view it as one either since it would feel a bit wierd to listen to on it's own without a follow up track for it to lead into. But I like it, it sets the mood nicely and does it's thing. I have always felt Maiden records have worked better with intros than just starting with a short rocker.

    A good intro, but I think it could be cut and the album wouldn't suffer. Balances out at a...

    I'm going to give it 7. Because it's tailored to be just an minute intro to the album/show. In that role it works, and a seven won't bring down or significantly raise total album score.

    7/10. Works great as an intro, which of course was what it was written for. I wish Maiden would have made more albums with a specific intro to set the mood of the album like this one does very will for Killers. I enjoy hearing it before Wrathchild, then Murders In A Rue Morgue, definitely a strong way to open their 2nd album!

    One of the best intros ever, easily 10/10

    Starts off the album in a really good way. Great intro to Wrathchild. 8/10.

    Ah I like it but its just too short to be ranked alongside other Maiden tracks on a serious basis so it only gets

    matic22 H is shorter for God.

    A filler intro... Anyway nice segwey into Wrathchild.

  12. Diesel 11

    Diesel 11 Gott Mit Uns

    It's hard to choose between Genghis Khan and this song, both are great, Khan is slightly better, this song is awesome nonetheless, give it 9/10.

    Largely superfluous intro with some wonderful guitar work.
    Highlight: Adrian Smith
    Lowlight: "Wrathchild" offers a better intro to "Wrathchild" than this
