2 stars When it comes to the time, are we partners in crime?

Iron maiden was the band that introduced me to rock in my early teenage years and without Maiden i probably wouldn't be listening to the music i listen to today. This album carries the title track that i probably lost my rock virginity to.

The album really isn't something you want to hang up in your christmas tree, so to speak. I still remember how i hated to switch cd:s in my walkman because i just didn't find anything else interesting here except for the legendary title track and the absolutley amazing "Afraid to shoot strangers". The latter is, in my opinion, the greatest Iron Maiden song ever made. It's progressive in a way, but that's not the point. The point is that the guitar solos in the chorus are absolutley fantastic. If someone asks what would be great about Iron Maiden, i would recommend this song.

I would feel compelled to give the album 3 stars, just because of the 2 great tracks, but this just isn't a good album. 2 stars.
