3 stars Hmm, this is (to me) the bands most overrated album, i mean sure its light years better than their last one but really? i mean this is Iron Maiden, we have to put up with yet another uninspired effort here really, although there are a lot more good songs than on No Prayer For The Dying the title track being such example and the opening BE QUICK OR BE DEAD with its rapid gun riffs and great vocals from Bruce, AFRAID TO SHOOT STRANGERS is not a bad track either even though personally i prefer Blaze Baileys version and WAISTING LOVE is an epic ballad Maiden style, the rest though (unfortunately) just lacks inspiration the way the old Maiden had, its not terrible, just not great;

Be Quick or Be Dead - 8/10 From Here To Eternity - 6/10 Afraid To Shoot Strangers - 8/10 Fear is The Key - 5/10 Childhood's End - 5/10 Wasting Love - 8/10 The Fugitive - 5/10 Chains of Misery - 6/10 The Apparition - 4/10 Judas be my Guide - 8/10 Weekend Warrior - 5/10 Fear of the Dark - 9/10

CONCLUSION: Again its just very uninspired, not a terrible album, just not a solid Maiden effort
