2 stars Not really their best work, this was basically a "back to basics" release from Iron Maiden only that it failed badly. This is just Iron Maiden copying themselves, trying to sound like they did before they started to get really progressive. The music here is not necessarly bad, this is good hard rock material though it get's old pretty fast and the whole album seems rushed in a way. Also, the departure of guitarist Adrian Smith makes this album loose it's magic in a way, though Janick Gers fills his shoes well, it isn't really the same. Of course, there are a few really good songs here, "Mother Russia" and "No Prayer For The Dying" in particular are stand-out's, but the album in general is too uneven to be considered as an important addition to an average Iron Maiden collection, hence the two star rating.

This is a "fan's only" product, while my personal rating of it is three stars, I can't give it higher than two due to that this is a prog-rock website. Collectors/Fans only!
