3 stars Progholes might just fear this album instead of anything else, though at least this was an improvement over "No Prayer For The Dying", but still both album were major step-downs from their later 80's albums. In terms of prog, this album, like it's predecessor, is barely progressive at all. "Afraid to Shoot Strangers" and the title track are the only tracks here that really could be considered as prog here if you ask me, and they both definitely help the album up from the trashcan. Otherwise, the album only consist of 90's hard-rock material.

Speaking non-prog now, this is a very good hard rock album and I personally like several of the songs, and Im sure that fans of the band will enjoy this release too. For progheads, however, I'd to get all of their 83-88 stuff before even bother to check out post-Adrian Smith Iron Maiden. Good, but non-essential.
