    What about those lyrics? "Soulless demons laughing in a sea of madness" "Lay in fear as the dark raven crows" "Praying that they wouldn’t die"

    Well, quite. Actually "Sea of Madness" was the first reference I spotted (mainly because it wasn't exactly subtle :D) I think there are a few references in other songs too.

    Number 6 Ancient Mariner

    There's the musical reference to "Wasted Years".

    Many people would call it a rip-off.

    Maiden has played what is essentially the same riff in Ghengis Khan, Hallowed, and Infinite Dreams but no one is complaining.

    Papa Roach also ripped it off.

    Fear of the Dark is a shit sandwich, first 3 songs and the title track are good. Everything in between is crap

    Fugitive, Judas and Wasting love are certainly not crap. But I agree that FOTD has some of their worst songs.

    This album has only 3 bad songs and with ''bad'' I mean for Maiden standards.

    Bruce sounds better on TFF than on TBOS.

    Well, for me he sounds a bit better on TBOS. He is a beast on the studio version on The Talisman though.

    A wheezing beast at that, buddy.

    Kalata Out of the Silent Planet

    He is a beast both studio and live, so no point in your comment, buddy.

    That’s a terrible thing for a fan to say about Paul Di’anno, no matter how true it might be.

    Charlay 4 Life!! :shred:

    I find Gangland to be a catchy tune. I also don’t hate Wrathchild as long as The Ides of March is played beforehand.

    I still cannot get into DoD even after 12 years of trying to give it its due. It’s the one post-reunion album that I seldom listen to and then only within my overall Maiden playlist, never on its own.

    Not even Paschendale?

    I will never understand the love for this disjointed mess of a song and its terrible verses.

    Paschendale is great, but only my 4th favorite from the album. Actually the album has only 5 great songs.

    The verses are by far and away my favorite part of the song and close to my favorite by Maiden. But hey, I'm not here to tell you how to think.

    Glad you like it. For me, poorly phrased vocals almost-but-not-quite doubling the backing guitars while doing the same brain dead descending melody over and over and over again is nothing to get excited about.
