2 stars Wow. Dicksinon back in the band. And it wasn't end of good news. Cos also Smith re-joined Iron Maiden becoming their 3rd (sic!) guitarist. And even this wasn't end of good news for me cos I was finally able to see Maiden with their most famous singer and my favorite Maiden's guitarist (and songwriter) when they set one show near my city for spring of 2000. And if Brave New World was such good album as Somewhere In Time I'd be probably over the moon. Because title of this record suggests band wanted to take us somewhere back in time, somewhere back in 1986. The Wicker Man is a good opener with fast riffing I like. And the rest of the album? Well I guess for some kids discovering metal at the time when it was released it's probably masterpiece. To me it's just a disappointing piece of not even well produced heavy metal. Guys wanted to release it fast and hit the road with that famous line-up. It was bad idea they didn't work more on it. Ok I give'em a point for Blood Brothers cos it reminds me of Jethro Tull's style here and there (vocals). But whole album is forgettable piece of junk. BTW the concert was great.
