4 stars right, on to the final Maiden album at last, and what are my thoughts? pretty damn good actually yes yes yes i know its quite different from there earlier albums, at times almost too different, but i actually really like that about this album, the opening track SATELITE 15..THE FINAL FRONTIER has a cool bass/noise intro with some nice almost tribal drum patterns, before kicking into the kick-assery that is the main song, although it is songs like THE TALISMAN with its very Jethro Tull intro and the experimental final track WHEN THE WILD WIND BLOWS with its sampled intro and outro and incredible twin flourishes that really make this album, in general though i think that this whole album almost feels like one standout track, its real hard to pick a favourite song, can be quite difficult to get into at first but please bear with it, you'll be glad you did;

Satellite 15.... The Final Frontier - 9/10 El Dorado - 8/10 Mother Of Mercy - 8/10 Coming Home - 9/10 The Alchemist - 9/10 Isle Of Avalon - 9/10 Starblind - 9/10 The Talisman - 10/10 The Man Who Would Be King - 10/10 When The Wild Wind Blows - 10/10

CONCLUSION, a very worthy add to your Iron Maiden collection
