    If one person replied to a post from 12 years ago, it could count as a mistake. But two people...
    I'm sure the Anonymous Guest will clarify his opinion any moment now.

    It's not even a particularly original or interesting viewpoint to the issue. That's some dedication right there.

    Well I think Bruce's solo catalogue is better than a large chunk of Maiden's post-Seventh Son music (however sacrilegious you may consider it)

    See how this works?

    Accident of Birth and The Chemical Wedding were markedly better than The X Factor and Virtual XI, in my opinion. I was a bit embarrassed for Maiden by that.

    In an alternate universe, it would have been cool to see what Bruce/Adrian/Roy could have done beyond those 2 albums. That band was awesome! (Drummer could have been better, though.)

    Agreed. I love what Maiden have done post-reunion, but if someone said we could have had 5 Chemical Wedding-caliber albums instead of BNW through TBOS...I'd be very tempted to trade them in.

    The Chemical Wedding is one of the best things Bruce has ever done, including all Maiden classic albums. An absolute masterpiece.

    My three:

    Fates Warning
    It's just... completely unmemorable in any way, shape, or form.

    Dream of Mirrors
    The only reason I give it a 7/10 is because the chorus is great, the rest of this song is meh.

    The Educated Fool
    Really bad chorus. Just plain shit.

    None of these songs are bad, just not great by Maiden standards. It's good that I can only think of three songs for this, right??

    Geez, can't believe the hate for Age of Innocence! That song effing ROCKS!

    For years I hated Can I Play With Madness, but only recently I've been playing it on my drive home from work everyday. Now I like it quite a bit, although it'll never be my fav. Ditto with Afraid to Shoot Strangers. Still don't care for the beginning, but at the 2:48 mark it's awesome.

    But I gotta agree with Daughter/Slaughter...awful song. As someone said a while back here, sounds like a bad AC/DC song.

    Bassman61 great minds think alike. Every time I read a negative review of Age if Innocents it makes me laugh: the song has everything I love about Maiden, and more.
    What I hear is Maiden at their best. Really melodic song with Bruce just killing it throughout. Some of my favorite rocking riffs and soulful chill moments of the reunion
    Lyrical master work As well. Describing the constant struggle of a noble citizen in an ever deteriorating civilization. A perfectly written and flawlessly performed example of the bands musicianship.
    And Then, there is.....":puke:bring your daughter" ......UY..

    Bunch of very very bad songs:
    Fear is the Key
    Chains of Misery
    The Apparition
    Weekend Warrior
    Lightning Strikes Twice
    When Two Worlds Collide

    The hate for the song is only from liberals who are offended at the song's lyrics. Of course it's not a bad song at all.

    Bring Your Daughter is not a bad song. It's just a bit silly for Maiden. It seems like it must have been a lot of fun to hear it live.

    Maiden's worst songs are all found on the 2 Blaze albums.

    You know this conservative-liberal thing has no meaning outside the US, right?

    I just think the song sounds really upbeat and poppy, and doesn't quite hit what I like from Iron Maiden. The lyrics are...no worse than some of their other lyrics, even if they do sound a little "get off my lawn".

    - I'm a socialist liberal
    - I'm not offended by art
    - Bring your daughter is not a bad song per se, however it deserves #1 single spot as much as Obama deserves that Nobel
