4 stars This album was my Maiden voyage into metal territory back in the late eighties, and the great riffing, crystal clear sounds, top notch production and relentless pace still blows me away. Throughout the album's compositions melodicity and powermetal battle for dominance, leaving the victory for the listener.

Highlights on this album are the fabulous opener Caught Somewhere In Time, which really sets the pace for the album. Heaven Can Wait, with bruce air raiding that Heaven can wait, good typical IM guitar solo in the middle and a stadium rock feel to it. And of course Alexander the Great.

All in all I consider this album my second favourite Iron Maiden album just after the classic The Number Of The Beast, a very enjoyable listening and recommended to all who enjoy high paced melodic metal.
