This is a real goldmine. This is Bruce's solo album from 1997 and doesn't sound like early Iron Maiden at all to me, but is kind of reminiscent of Brave New World and Dance of Death. All I'll say is this album rocks from start to finish! Bruce's voice is powerful as ever, every track is different so it never sounds the same. Also this song contains two of my favourite songs OF ALL TIME - the chilling acoustic/violin final track "Arc of Space", and of course the blistering title track "Accident of Birth", which is dark and HEAVY!!! Also check out the lyrics cos they're good. If you're a fan of early Maiden, you'll not find the same thing here but if you're into the newer stuff get this. Anyway, that's besides the point, just get this anyway.
