Pretty much all, yes, except the hangers-on of the support band.
yes the singer actually sound much better live
Album is okay. They were awesome live.
First impression was not great, maybe I'll give it another go some day.
Didn’t like it, poor outdated production and average/weak songs plus not a very good vocalist. Glad I paid just a couple of euros for the album.
But I’m sure their next album will be much better and focused than the debut.
I am glad I could listen to the official stream of the album before forking out some money for it; that saved me a few quid. Really disappointing, which is quite sad considering the idea sounded great on paper (Steve going back to his 70s hard rock roots).
I bought the CD, played the album once, and then never again.
I revisited it a few weeks ago and it was worse than I remembered. Couldn’t even get through the whole album.
PRR holds up surprisingly well though.
PRR is one of the best Maiden-related albums, up there with AOB and TCW, if you ask me.
Threw British Lion on a month or so ago.
Was as solid and unremarkably enjoyable as I remembered.
I just gave it a listen and this is the best way I can sum up the album.
There's nothing truly special about British Lion, but for what it is, it's pretty successful. The first four tracks I wasn't too fond of, but starting with The Chosen Ones, everything actually got better. A World Without Heaven was awesome and The Lesson was a beautiful closer.
It's not Maiden, but if you can look past that, this album is enjoyable.
People probably thought it would be similar to Bruce's solo stuff.
Well if they did it would totally be their own fault since the British Lion stuff was always promoted as a return to the influences/straight up 70s inspired hard rock album. The thing about British Lion that people seem to forget is that it was a regular band that Steve happened to like way back in the 90s and wanted to give a push. The fact that his name is even on the album is just marketing really. Fact of the matter is that there's very little Steve Harris about it - he's "just" playing the bass in the band, and that's cool, it must be nice to have a band outside Maiden where he can just play for the fun of it. I'm happy that Steve didn't *just* end his career in a band like British Lion (which he might have if things had gone differently) but actually was lucky enough/skilled enough to carve his own way with Iron Maiden
This is the first rule of listening to British Lion. Do not compare.
