2 stars One of the weakest Maiden releases, by far, but Virtual XI is far worse. Dickinson's voice seems to be a little alcohol-friendly, isn't it ? Raw voice.

Of course, there are good songs on this album, especially Bring Your Daughter...To The Slaughter, Public Enema Number One, Holy Smoke and No Prayer For The Dying (the best song on this album, and one of the most poignant Maiden songs). But there are also big fillers (Run Silent, Run Deep ; The Assassin ; Hooks In You), and the new guitar player, Janick Gers, isn't as good as the late Adrian Smith - different style, I prefer Smith.

Not their worse, but largerly average album. Nice cover art, censored in some countries (Eddie's victim vanished on some reissues). The last by Derek Riggs, innit ?

Zardoz | 2/5 |
