4 stars Adrian Smith out, Janick Gers in. It seemed to be not a good move cos Adrian was excellent songwriter and musician. Who's Janick Gers? Dickinson introduced him to the band and to be honest he proved he was not worse than Adrian. Well at least in guitar playing. He didn't have a chance to prove his composing skills at the time and it was hard to believe he'd be alble to write better songs than Smith. Only thing that left from Smith was song Hooks In You which is good hard rock tune. Dickinson sings a bit different than he did on previous albums. This time he sounds almost like Brian Johnson of AC/DC. I really have very positive feelings about this album and good memories about that. I think songs like Public Enemy Number One, Fates Warning, No Prayer For The Dying, Assassin, Holy Some are very strong hard rock tunes and prove Iron Maiden were in good form in late 80's. Mother Russia is mostly instrumental track and it could be released on previous album cos it's same mysterious like some tracks of Seventh Son. No Prayer For The Dying is highly underrated release and I still don't know why. "Be it the devil or be it him, You can count on just one thing, When the time is up you'll know, Not just one power runs the show" sings Dickinson in Fates Warning. I really like this album.
