I have seen Maiden live 14+ times and scheduled to see them on The Book of Souls tour. Bruce still can pipe out the tunes along with solid rythmic beat backing up his voice. Nicko on the drums keeps it all in time. Maiden has a style of Rock-Metal all their own and are still on top of the game. I enjoyed this album. For all you naysayers about wanting another xxxx. The beauty of music is not to be cookie cutter. There will always only be one Piece of Mind, Number of the Beast, Brave New World,.... To me this album captures the vintage beat of Maiden with their style but puts a new twist on it. Keep rocking Bruce, Steve, Nicko, Adrian, and team..
Up the f***ing irons!!!
For all you judgemental buttholes, you know nothing about music!! This is a masterpiece!!!!!
Iron Maiden is in top form with The Book of Souls. If you love their long epics, this album is for you. I just saw this album on iTunes' list of Hot Albums, which is fitting considering that every band member is burnin' throughout the record. If you don't own it, do yourself a favor and buy The Book of Souls. However, the opening riff from If Eternity Should Fail sounds eerily similar to parts of The Lost Christmas Eve (title track) by TSO.
Lost a step...or two...or
This isn't very good , where are days like Piece of mind??...vocals are very off......NEXT⁉...hang it up dudes
Best album in over a decade
This is the best thing since Brave New World and a solid 5 stars. I saw them on the opening show of the tour in Florida. Amazing! The Man of Sorrows is my favorite along with The Great Unknown and The Red and the Black
