3 stars A fantastic showing of what metal can really do. I don't believe it is prog per-se but it definitely tries to lightly touch on prog. So, yes, prog fans can still enjoy this very much but expect to have fun more than anything. You wont be blown away but you will have a good time listening to it, as long as you don't expect anything too proggy. What really suprised me is that even when a song died down, it was still going strong and with tremendous fury and momentum. Wierd. Plus Bruce's voice just gets inside your head, and its fun to see what he can do once he's taken over. I just sit there and smile when he sings cause it really is comical how good he is at sounding demonized or possesed, and of course in the best way possible. Fun licks, fun singer, you can listen to it with anyone. Especially those OTHER hard rockin' snobs who turn their noses at the smell of prog. Unfortunately, once again, this really isn't very proggy so even what is IMHO the most prog and probably best Iron Maiden album can only get a 'good' from me.

3 stars, a good addition to a prog collection. But honestly, it's a fantastic metal album.
