    This song is the perfect embodiment of delayed gratification. That sudden speed-up at 2:43 wouldn't be half as amazing if the song were to start with it. Instead we have the slow-burn build-up, which I can only imagine would be tantalizing in concert. And then of course, that blistering solo. This is one of my all-time favorite Maiden songs because of this.

    Love this song, it's been one of my personal favorite Maiden tunes for a while now. I am so glad I got to witness this performed live last year on the North American leg of the Maiden England Tour! It was a beautiful surprise and one of the highlights of the night!! \m/ \m/
