A Matter of Life and Death
« on: October 02, 2006, 03:55:00 pm »
Has anybody out there gotten the new Iron Maiden album yet? As a long time fan and owner of nine Maiden CDs, I have to say I really wasn't expecting something this extraordinary. After the recent dissapointment of some of my favorite classic bands (i.e. Queensryche, Operation: Mindcrime II, anything Metallica puts out), I was beggining to view these gods of old as tired, washed out geezers. Fortunately, I have been proven wrong. Every track on this album is epic and grand, formulaic Maiden. For sure, it's not easy listening, but the music grows on you. I'm listening to it on my way to school, work, church (is that a bad idea? ;D), at home...sheesh. Killers is still probably my favorite album though. But if you're a fan at all of the band, or even the music style, you must own this. Instant classic.

Plus it comes with a cool cloth patch with the Maiden logo on it...who wouldn't want one of those?

Maiden is great. I bought the album the day it came out here, I didnt think it was anything special the first time I listened to it but it has really grown on me.
