    Maybe I am so enthralled with the song because I am so enthralled with the Story...in any case, I love it!

    And she's not alone with it.The X-Factor,and the Virtual XI are both fantastic albums,and I say this altogether with the fact that I hate Blaze's singing! But most of the songs on those two albums are actually better or even with songs from other Maiden albums,so yes,still "To tame a land" is the worst song that Iron Maiden ever did in their entire career. Musically speaking it's mediocre,one of the so-called filler songs on POM,and lyrically it's an utter crap.While on the other hand,those Blaze-era albums got songs like "Sign of the cross" (which is fantastic,musically and lyrically) "Lord of the flies" (ditto) "Futureal" (one of the fastest Maiden song ever written) or "The Clansman" (which is just as gold classic as - let's say - Hallowed be thy name!)! So even though "To tame a land" was sung by Bruce,and it was part of one of the most beloved Maiden albums,it just can't make the cut! If the ladies would make another CD,which only contains the cover of "The Clansman" I would buy it,that's for sure! I'm in love with this song and I have nothing to do with scottish patriotism...it's my 2nd favorite Maiden song of all-time!

    Hmmm. Maiden with no Bruce is not a world I want to live in. ou say Blaze sucked, as he rightfully did, but Bruce is clearly the real singer of Maiden.

    Killers is my favourite album of Maiden by a mile, closely followed by the debut so let's just say that everyone has differing opinions.

    Also, The Clansman is a fantastic song and is also hugely special to me being Scottish.

    What I'm trying to tell you,is that though IMO Bruce is one of the best singers of the world,and definitely he is the real deal for Maiden,still "To tame a land" sucks.Also what I'm trying to say is even though you hate Blaze's voice (as much as I do) you should still give a listen to the Blaze-era albums,because those songs are as good as any other Maiden songs.If you don't wanna do that,it's fine,but trust me - you'll miss some really great songs!

    :lol::lol::lol: Yeah,well...those aren't the most dynamic songs I've ever heard that's for sure,but some of them still very memorable! Maybe a couple of Red Bulls could help you through them! :cool:

    Didn't you just get finished saying the Blaze songs are just as good as other Maiden songs? Now you are saying they are just memorable.

    To Tame a Land does not suck. What kind of statement is that?

    The Trooper sucks.

    I would pay the Maidens to play Prodigal Son! Can't believe it didn't make the list! I think it would be great if they brought a guest guitarist (who would would bring their own gear ;)) on stage with them to nail the sound, say someone like Michelle Meldrum (Phantom Blue) or other hot female or even male artist. Aja's voice would just make this song even better!

    Short answers:

    Just as good or memorable...doesn't matter,just a figure of speech.They're good,that's it.

    I don't know what kinda statement is this but yes,"To tame a land" sucks.

    And "The trooper" doesn't.It's just overplayed.

    I rarely listen to other type of music than metal,except when I'm at some public place (preferably some bar!) and then I couldn't care less what they're playing,so I cannot really tell...as I don't listen to radio,it is certainly not overplayed for me!:lol:

    I like To Tame a Land. Who else has a Dune song?

    Maybe Msiden needs a Star Wars song.

    I'm surprised 'Arry hasn't written a Lord of the Rings or Chronicles of Narnia song yet.

    Or at least a song about Siths or something.

    I don't know, is there a Maiden song about Tolkein? I can't think of one. At least Zeppelin has one.

    "To Tame a Land" and "The Clansman" are currently tied on the lead with six votes each. Anyone here want to do a tiebreaker?

    BTW, I went to YouTube and checked out the original studio recordings of "Sign of the Cross" and "The Clansman." Ugh! "Sign of the Cross" is mind-numbingly slow. And Blaze shows absolutely no emotion and no passion on either of the two songs. After going through those versions, I'm so glad that Bruce saved them from complete obscurity.

    So E.O.G. do you still believe what you typed,
    "you should still give a listen to the Blaze-era albums,because those songs are as good as any other Maiden songs.If you don't wanna do that,it's fine,but trust me - you'll miss some really great songs!"

    The real question is, "How in the blazes did Blaze get the job?"

    Given that Maiden auditioned over a hundred vocalists before Blaze, I guess that either the other 99 guys who auditioned sucked even worse or someone in the band was drunk.
