4 stars The first time that I hear this album the first thing that impressed me was the return of Bruce Dickinson and Adrian Smith, the next question that came to my mind, 3 guitarists?, How their sound it will be with 3 guitarists?, and actually their sound more in rich and full in composition. and hearing the voice of Bruce Dickinson renewed, rejuvenated and eager to sing to their maximum potential. itself, Iron Maiden does not lose its dye and heavy-metal style with the typical fast pace that has characterized the battery, and with strong vocals and repetitive, melodic solos. But the reality of Brave New World is another, iron maiden offers songs longer and taking a step in the evolution of their sound, where you can hear on this album the full maturity of the band, where the patterns and changes in rhythm are essentially in their work, and where the melody of the guitar is even more pervasive and the voices are in tone to the melody of change, where if you want the beginnings of the songs are lighter and as the piece progresses, evolves in nature and style. With profound lyrics, and I repeat, Bruce Dickinson's voice shines like never before, I had the opportunity when i was 14 in 2001, to see Iron Maiden with the presentation of this album, in Foro del sol, mexico city, first Queensryche and then Rob Halford, and to finish the dish, iron maiden,I will never forget that concert.

Speaking of the 3 explosive guitars have incredible solos, full of passion, speed and melody, there are times where the 3 guitars make the play and it sounds spectacular. talking about the progressive elements that Iron Maiden used in this album are really noticeable, as the piece of Brave New World,blood brothers( love the final part, amazing solo,this is music man.), The Nomad, Out of the Silent Planet and the thin line bewteen heat and love.

In conclusion with this album iron maiden makes an evolutiuon of their sound without leaving their roots, with songs richer in composition, and for the progressive hearing this album in general is the best, you could say that would best Iron Maiden albums, and one in its infancy in this new era of music.

4 Solid stars.
