  • Brilliant album! Not for typical metalhead minds
  • There is definitely better songwriting on this album than on the previous two albums, which, to be frank, only had a handful of above average Maiden songs. This is definitely the album where Steve Harris started writing with a more progressive brush stroke, which isn't shocking when you look at the proggy songs from their early albums, and that Steve Harris is a HUGE Dream Theater fan. What hurts this album the most is that Blaze's vocals could have been better, it seems that he just coasted through the entire process. At least the production is a lot better than it was on Virtual XI, something that really bogs down that album. Overall, a great, under appreciated album from Maiden, but one that lacks the energy that Bruce Dickinson brought to the table on Brave New World, which is oddly similar to this one.
  • such an underrated album. love it's grim melody.
  • Really good album. Dark and I thought Blaze did great here. Way better than Virtual XI.
  • An amazing release!
  • Most underrated heavy metal album ever [2] Very melancholy, very progressive. Remarkable climate. Perfect repertoire for Blaze.
  • Killer album. Better than NPFTD. Love the vibe on this. Blaze is an incredible singer as well.
