Pretty shit tbh. Production is okay but not great. Guitars sound a bit muddy. Bruce sounds great when he finally starts singing during the bridge. The melody under the chorus is quite cool but the whole thing is thoroughly bungled. Solos are of course classic Maiden and Nicko is always an awesome drummer. But ultimately it just feels kind of pointless, the riffs aren't very good and don't do anything interesting, and it's way too long. All that said, Different World was also kind of shit and it turned out to be both completely different from the rest of the album and far worse. So I'm hoping that's what happened, because I had some real hope for this album. Also, I think the band sounds a bit darker than even on AMOLAD, which was definitely their darkest album. That could be good or bad. I definitely hear a bit of BNW in the solos, which is definitely good because that was my favorite new-millenium Maiden album. From their website: So it's a bit bloated, no doubt. I was hoping that wouldn't carry over from AMOLAD, but if the single is anything to judge by, it's actually worse. That said, the track titles are definitely interesting. Although I'm curious to know how much of this was written by Bruce, because those all sound like songs that'd be on one of his solo albums. Oh well. I'm gonna buy it when it comes out, and see them on tour if I can.
