5 stars Haha, wow i dont think anyone was really prepared fro this album, this being the bands darkest and at times there most 'symphonic' album to date. So much so that the bands live show featured costumes, theatrics and a lot of extra helping hands (as documented on the live DVD) As far as the album itself goes, this is a real knockout of a release, also a real high point of there experimentation as ir features more strings/keys and even features the bands first ever full acoustic song. The lead single WILDEST DREAMS really starting the album off to real knock out effect the title track kinda reminding me of a Jetro Tull song (these no flutes or anything) it just has a folky vibe to it and the epic PASCHENDALE is just awsome, the only bad- ish song i can tell is maybe GATES OF TOMORROW and even then its quite decent, so to sum up yet another epic/classic modern Maiden album;

Wildest Dreams - 9/10 Rainmaker - 9/10 No More Lies - 8/10 Montségur - 8/10 Dance of Death - 10/10 Gates of Tomorrow - 7/10 New Frontier - 7/10 Paschendale - 10/10 Face in the Sand - 8/10 Age of Innocence - 9/10 Journeyman - 10/10

CONCLUSION; yet another great album, big recommendation
