    I would give it 8 out of 10. It could've been a masterpiece, but it is still surprisingly good.

    It's definitely a lot to take in, but it's worth it. I've listened about 7 times through and I highly recommend taking a short break in between discs 1 and 2.

    Empire of the Clouds is such a daring song for the band and I love it.

    I'd say it's certainly their strongest since Brave New World (which I rank as Maiden's 2nd best album of all time). It might even be stronger.

    Can't stomach Maiden anymore... but Brave New World was also one of my favourites of theirs when I liked them.
    Brave and 7th Son were up there.

    Yeah, Seventh Son and Brave New World are my top two Maiden albums. This will probably end up placing third. I really, really like it. The reunion albums have been hit or miss, they are either great all around (BNW, AMOLAD, TBOS) or full of some amazing songs and some very mediocre/bad songs (DoD, TFF).

    Anyone got the new Stratovarious album?

    It's very good and boasts some superb guitar solos

    Zierler - Esc is out now. Finn Zierler did an awesome job together with some other incredible musicians, as always. The only difference is that, this album includes far less "easy listening" parts. Quite sophisticated stuff, requires high concentration while listening.

    Decided to check out this new Zeirler (who is this guy?) because it sounded intriguing. Yep, I'm confused.

    The guy behind Beyond Twilight. You should check out The Devil's Hall of Fame, it's good. Weird, but good.

    Personally I think Book of Souls has as many great songs as it has discs. But that's just me.

    The video is cheesy and pretentious.


    The music is excellent.

    Devil's is great, but I actually prefer Section X. I know I'm one of few, but I just prefer it. It's equally as weird... but there's something about BT that makes me enjoy them. Sometimes, things just click.
    I know Jorn in on Devil's, and he's amazing, but Kelly also does a great job on X. The cameo from Circus's singer on Sleeping Beauty is a nice touch :)
    Actually, that song is great overall... here you go, gents!

    Glad you like the music atleast. Personally I love the video, I think it really enhances the drama and narrative of the song.
