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.

This album is a return to form for the former Iron Maiden vocalist after the awful effort that was "Skunkworks". From the moment i heard this album i knew it was a return not only to form for Bruce, but a return to what he does best - Maiden. Bear in mind that at the time this album was released Maiden were playing to paltry crowds by their standards with Blaze Bayley taking some serious flack (and rightly so for my cash) for not being up to the job. I truly believe this album paved the way for Bruce's return to the Maiden camp (this and it's twin brother in Chemical Wedding). It's pure Maiden from the get go - it is a if Bruce went out specifically to show Iron Maiden how it should be done. Highlights are the title track, and the absolute classic "Darkside of Aquarius" - the best solo Bruce effort since "Tears of the Dragon". Do you like Maiden but have never bought a Dickinson solo album? - then buy this - you will not be dissapointed.

You switch it on and BANG you're hit by the pumping sound of "Freak" which takes you through four minutes of solid rock - comparable to 2 Minutes to Midnight perhaps, but so modern sounding. This album does, as said by someone below, have a mixed style of music - but do not let this put you off. The word that springs to mind is 'experimental' - Dark side of Aquarius is an example of this, and this was my favourite song off the album for a while.. This was, until, I heard the verse of the title track a few times -My God! That has to be the most rockin verse to a song you will ever hear, and it jumps straight into The Magician - which has the most rockin chorus you will ever hear! The Road to Hell is very fun whilst driving - a catchy chorus typical of a Bruce/Adrian writing combination. However I think it must be Roy Z's writing and production that takes this album to the step higher - the effects he uses are intense, especially on the near tear-jerking journey that is Omega.
I cannot pick a favourite - there are just too many solid, excellent tracks. Welcome to the Pit is one I could pick which doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the album - it seems like it would fit better on something a little darker- maybe Maiden's No Prayer for the Dying, which is disappointing as it is the only other song on the album in which Adrian takes a turn in helping Bruce write the thing, especially as it comes straight after the Magician which is so uplifting and fun! Don't let this put you off - it is easily the most listened to album I have.

As a long-time Maiden fan I'd resisted for some time buying any of Bruce's solo albums, afraid that I'd be disappointed-- wow! was I wrong!!!
This was the first of Bruce's own albums I bought and it blew me away!
The weekend I bought it I played and re-played it over and over-- and haven't stopped playing it since. His other solo albums which I also now own are all very impressive but none has matched this one for all-round excellence-- there is no weak song and the coupling of Taking the Queen and Darkside of Aquarius rank with anything Maiden have done before or since. Of course this album also features Adrian Smith on guitar, so you know the standard to expect. The rest of the band are up to grade too, and I can guarantee that if you're a Maiden fan or just a metal/rock fan you'll be mightily impressed by this album--
It's just a pity the cover's not so hot-- Derek Riggs on a rare off-day.
Buy Buy Buy!!!
