5 stars This is by far the most progressive work of the heavy metal masters Iron Maiden. Since "Brave New World", Iron Maiden is trying to broaden their musical horizons towards the progressive music and this album is the first one that can almost get the "Prog Metal" tag. The album is filled with epics. Almost every music has a slow instrumental intro and them explodes in one of the heaviest works of the group. "The Reincarnation of Bejamin Breeg", "Brighter than a Thousand Suns", "Lord of Light" and "The Legacy" will mark the bands history as some of their biggest epics all in one album. The voice of the vocalist Bruce Dickinson is even better than in "Dance of Death", a fact that , for me, puts him very far from any other vocalist. Since he entered in the band until now he is developing and improving his voice, making him the best vocalist on earth for me. Another highlight I can point in this album is the drumming of Nicko Mc'Brain that for me was never a differenced drummer, but in "AMOLAD" he really impressed me. Well, i can say that this is one of the best albuns of their carreer ( if not the best one) but the die-hard fans of the band may find it not so good.
