4 stars I have no idea, why The X-Factor is not considered as one of IM best albums. It's my second best after Brave new world. First of all there's no Dickinson and Smith, which means it sounds completely different than previous records. Bailey's vocals are low, a bit theatrical and much less melodical than Dickinsons' but it works well with the music. Songs are no longer just simple fast rockers, but thought over compositions with great lyrics. All I can say is give X-Factor a try before you throw it away (because you're a Dickinsons' fan). Genesis performed well on 'Trick...' after Peter Gabriel's departure and so did Maiden after Bruce left the band. It's different IM, but not worser IM.
