Pretty much all, yes, except the hangers-on of the support band.
yes the singer actually sound much better liveI liked the album. Lost Worlds, Eyes of the Young and These Are The Hands are my favourites.
The singer sounds better live though.
One of the unreleased trackw which I really like as well. It will propably be the highlight on the next album!
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sad considering the idea sounded great on paper (Steve going back to his 70s hard rock roots).Didn’t like it, poor outdated production and average/weak songs plus not a very good vocalist.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 just gave it a listen and this is the best way I can sum up the album.solid and unremarkably enjoyable
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 MaidenPeople probably thought it would be similar to Bruce's solo stuff.
