5 stars This is probably my favourite Iron Maiden album, although BNW and the debut come close. The production is a step up, i think from all their previous albums, and the addition of keyboards to the mix creates a great new sound for Maiden.

This album hits the ground running with anthem 'Caught Somewhere in Time'. This is a Maiden claasic and sums up their sound at this period. 'Wasted Years' was one of the singles of the album and does sound quite commercial, but nevertheless it is a brilliant song. 'Sea of Madness' is an often overlooked highlight with a truly epic soaring chorus. 'Heaven can Wait' is absolutely amazing. You should hear it to believe it. 'The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner' is good, if not slightly derivative of an earlier song (Children of the Damned). 'Stranger in a Strange Land' is another single but this one is even better and a good competitor for best song on the album. Very epic with great lyrics. 'Deja Vu' is a somewhat weaker link, but Bruce's very unusual vocals keep it interesting. 'Alexander the Great' closes the album perfectly with its epic storyline and impressive musicianship.

This albums packs in everything that I love about Maiden. Thunderous bass lines. Catchy Riffs. Soaring choruses. Blistering Solos. break-neck drumming. Atmospheric synths. The list goes on. Just buy it, wether your a fan or not you probably will be after a couple of spins of this album.

Up the Irons!!!
