An acoustic, "The Legacy"-ish intro kicks off "The Talisman", one of the two best epics on The Final Frontier. Just like the song it took its inspiration for the intro from, it's... brilliant. A masterpiece, to say the least, though it is far faster and more agressive than "The Legacy". And they way it just keeps building without ever reprising the intro is beautiful, and very different from the classic Maiden formula. Janick's solo is one of the best on the album (very chaotic, yet brilliant). The chorus is very memorable as well, though it sounds even better on En Vivo!, with an entire audience. A 10, for sure.
