Another underrated album.

I don't like the first song that much but the rest of the album is stunning. Besides the classic songs such as wasted years and heaven can wait there are some other real belters on here. Sea of madness, the loneliness of the long distance runner, deja vu and alexander the great are all classic songs in my opinion. It is worth buying for wasted years and heaven can wait alone but the other tracks are a definite bonus.
As to the 'synth' sound, like a previous review said it just makes the guitars sound a bit echoey, it's still heavy. If it wasn't for the first track I would have given it a five, it's worth buying.

I'm not a massive fan of synth (in fact, I generally hate it with a passion) but all it does for this album is make it sound a bit more weird and wonderful, as it's not used excessively to ruin the vocals or anything like that - it just makes them a bit echoey. Good solid songs, good, unusual-sounding album.

Briliance in Time!

This is the first time Maiden are using synth's, and it works great. The sound of this album is incredible, probably Maiden's best produced one and the voice of Dickinson has never been better. No weak tracks here, high quality from the first to the last one. This is an album which definately will stand it's test of time!

This album is an instant classic and includes the classic wasted years. this aint liked much by some maiden fans cause it is there first album with keyboards and maiden had refused using keyboards in the past since this album. Personally i love this album great solos mindblowing vocals from Bruce dickinson and some great riffs too. My fave tracks are Caught Somewhere In Time, Wasted Years, Alexander The Great, Sea Of madness heck all of this album rules. From the track Caught Somewhere In Time to Alexander the great it rules, plus theres not one ballad on this go maiden. It is very hard to choose a fave maiden album cause there all amazing(in my opinion). Deffinetly get this if your getting into maiden it's an instant classic. UP THE IRONS!!!!!

My personal favourite Maiden Album
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 26/08/2007 23:46:38
I love much of what maiden did through the 80's, but this album seemed play with a recurring theme of loneliness and mortality - while still retaining the metal edge the lyrics seemed pretty honest and enable the listener, to lift the album from one which is just entertaining, such as "Number of the Beast" or "Piece of Mind", into the other category, where you listen to an album and each time it just makes more sense, and you can't help but include it into one of your favourite all time albums - I guess that this album used a lot more synths than previously for Maiden drew crtiticism, but the sheer quality of songs such as "wasted Years" and "stanger in a strange land" mean that this is one of those albums I listen to during 'those' moments
