2 stars 2.5 stars, actually

I am not an Iron Maiden fan, but from what ive given the chance to hear according to the ratings on this site, i can see why so many people are. This album, i believe, is not as good as Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, because it does not keep a consistent theme the whole album. However it does give you some great songs. The problem i have is that there is some serious filler here, a couple of the songs in the middle are terrible, and it pained me to listen to them all the way through. This is a rather high quality metal album, but that being said its still really straight forward and not for a prog fan. If your a metal fan than go ahead and get it. For the prog fan, Rime of the Ancient Mariner is going to be your only real prog here.

Fantastic metal, RotAM is the only prog though, so 2 and a half stars is quite generous.
