4 stars New frontman?? and who else but the wonderful Blaze Bailey... Iron Maiden enter this new 'phase' with style why?? because they actually make a great album, darker, moodier and sometimes heavier, we open with the wonderful SIGN OF THE CROSS an epic 11 minute track that has a great middle section the next few songs are great as well and really build the album up but it is the amazing JUDGMENT OF HEAVEN that really makes this album for me, theres just something great about it and the chorus is fantastic, the bad news on the album? well there really isn't any...really (just my opinion) well maybe one or two songs FORTUNES OF WAR could have been cut down and mayybe the final song UNBELIEVER but apart from that, this is a great album, not 100% perfect but still a much bigger improvement from their last 2 albums;

Sign of The Cross - 10/10 Lord of the Flies - 9/10 Man on the Edge - 8/10 Fortunes of War - 8/10 Look for The Truth - 7/10 Aftermath - 8/10 Judgment of Heaven - 10/10 Blood on the World's Hands -9/10 Edge of Darkness - 9/10 2 A.M. -8/10 Unbeliever - 8/10

CONCLUSION: A big improvement, a great album :)
