2 stars Steve Harris knows how to make money. And because I'm pro capitalistic I give him point for that. But do I need another Maiden record? After two weak releases Iron Maiden gain a hattrick. Steve likes football so he wouldn't mind my words I guess. Young fans probably have nothing against this cheesy metal stuff that is pumped up to enormous impudence. I guess band with the same impudence is trying us to say 'just take a look on times of these songs, they're long'. So is it artistic? No, it's just boring. Production of this album fails same as production of Brave New World. Of course this album is loud but some dirt was put on guitars and vocals are flat like Earth in XII century. If you just turned 12, look for good cover and want to tell your friends you listen to ambitious music (cos songs are long) buy it. Otherwise don't waste your money for such evidence of artistic suicide. Objectively 2 stars.
