Thread for all discussion of the track 'The Time Machine' from Iron Maiden's 17th studio album 'Senjutsu'.
Janick might as well retire the acoustic guitar, Adrian showed him how to do it on The Writing on the Wall.The intro is just The Talisman played again.
The middle guitar melody is a copy from The Edge Of Darkness.
Yep, totally not similar.The one I really don't get are the Darkest Hour = Coming Home comments... Like it's really two very different messages and feelings.
Yes thank you I know about that bit but it's like 4 damn seconds of the whole song. The rest of the song really does not sound similar to me.Yep, totally not similar.
Coming home 3:33-3:38,
Darkest Hour 5:06 - 5:10
Why do those people criticize our mighty maidens a lot?!
It's "I'm not a preacher", by the way.How many times can Janick right the same acoustic intro? Once every record it appears.
Still cool, but couldn't he at least use a different key? Whatever.
The verse is fantastic. I really like the use of his mode, not sure which. Bruce's melody variation is fantastic too, how he sings the "harmony" part to the first melody line. The "I'm not a creature" part is very cool too, Maiden usually aren't that "bright", tonally.
The transition to the verse is great. Cool verse, but not as unique as the rest of the song.
What's does the riff in the first solo remind me of? The Legacy maybe? In any case,very cool Adrian solo on top of that.
Dave and Janick's solos are par for the course, and the "open your heart" part is again not as interesting as the rest of the song.
Another chorus, a cool transition, and seriously, again, that acoustic intro. Even the trope of starting and ending the song with the same acoustic part is used every time.
