Equality 7-2521
2 stars If this album was a two track EP it would have some worth to prog fans and to the general audience, but instead Iron Maiden chose to contribute an additional 40 mins of songs that sound less like Iron Maiden songs than they do like songs trying too hard to be Iron Maiden songs. They come off as mockeries of themselves devoid of any of the qualities that made them such a breakthrough act.

"Afraid To Shoot Strangers" and "Fear Of The Dark" are two excellently executed songs with proggy undertones that point back to Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. However, the rest of the album is forgettable at best.
