    I was joking that we could both agree with that statement even though the meaning would be totally different for each of us.

    I don't hate "The Apparition", I gave it a 5/10.

    I actually really like the chorus. Seems to be pretty unpopular opinion here.

    I had forgotten how awesome this song is.
    One of the best reunion songs and one of the best long/epic songs of Maiden ! Fantastic chorus and dramatic pre-chorus, the riff is also great (like the bass line and the drums), the intro is majestic, great solos and twin/triple guitar harmony. Very melodic song, Bruce shines through it. 9/10 - ohhhh fuck it, I will give it a 10/10 !

    I've spoken about why I dislike this song a lot. Amazing intro, building verses, explosive pre-chorus, and a bland, repetitive chorus that goes nowhere. Once it passes, the verses and pre-chorus feel trite and not even the instrumental can save this song. It's one that could have been great had it been severely edited, but alas. 4

    7/10. While I used to like this song more, it has just lost its favor with me. The buildup through the first verse and prechorus is great. The chorus is okay. I'm a big fan of the instrumental.
  8. Sat down and listened to this song for the first time in a long time. The buildup and prechorus are amazing. The chorus isn't unreal but it is still strong and the instrumental portion is outright perfection imho. Easily 9/10

    Great buildup, tension growing step by step... and then the chorus ( How long etc...) just falls flat. After that the song never really recovers.

    It is a fantastic song. One of my all time favourites from the band. The lyrics always give me goosebumps.
