5.0 out of 5 stars Quick Reviews! 30 Sep 2010
By carlosnightman VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Maiden's fourth album would build upon what they had created with Number Of The Beast, giving fans another set of metal anthems. This was another huge album for the group received well by fans and critics, and selling millions around the world. Nicko McBrain joined as new drummer and remains to this day setting in place the classic line-up. After the success of their last album the band had garnered a huge following, but due to their rise to success they had also acquired an army of critics- parents, politicians, and other media types who accused them of devil worship and other treats; metal was on the verge of it's golden era and Maiden were front and centre. The band have never hidden themselves from controversy and include a few humorous references to these criticisms throughout the album. This more than any other album shows the band's love for art and literature and they manage to blend a myriad of influences and references into both hit singles and expansive epics.

`Where Eagles Dare' introduces us to Nicko with the group letting him open the album. After a splattering of drums a clattering riff starts before Dickinson chimes in at his most air raid siren style. The lyrics and themes are based on the film and book of the same name and cover the usual fare of war and bravery. The overlapping riffs, drums, and effects give a new wall of sound style that the band had not tried before. The dual attack is perfected on this album more than any, and this song highlights the harmony amongst the band as they tried ever more complex constructions.

`Revelations' opens with stadium chords showing a band full of confidence. Things slow to sludge tempo as the band go Sabbath on us. Dickinson is again on top form, bottomless lungs providing some great vocals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Maiden move to the global scale 26 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
With the arrival of drummer Nicko McBrain, Iron Maiden settled in to a rigorous album-tour-album cycle that would see them climb to global dominance in the metal world. This is not the sound of a bunch of kids emerging from the pub circuit, but a bunch of musicians growing and maturing as a band. Gone are the tales of prostitutes, subways, boozing and remembering tomorrow and in come the high concept tales of fantasy, mythology, war and sci-fi. In making that transition to global status, I feel that Maiden lost something of their earthy roots, but what the album lacks in urgency it makes up in professional sheen. Adrian Smith and Bruce Dickinson came more to the fore as songwriters, and Harris also weighed in with his fair share of quality material. Of said material, the pick of the bunch would definately appear amongst the first half of the tracks, as the album has often been accused of tailing off towards the end a little in awkward epics such as "To tame a land" and "Quest for fire".

5.0 out of 5 stars Maiden's finest album 14 April 2005
By Martin
Format:Audio CD
Having broken through with The Number of the Beast, aided by new vocalist Bruce Dickinson's roaring vocal style and the unusually sophisticated songs it allowed them to pursue, Maiden continued their evolution towards superstardom with this gem. Lyrically it moves towards serious fare, with the group's trademark fascination with ancient history, particularly the darker side of oppression and brutality, really coming to the fore.
In those days Maiden only released 2 singles from each album, which continued until they bombarded the charts with 5 from Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (ironically the album which perhaps marked the beginning of their artistic decline). The choices here are fairly anthemic, with Flight of Icarus featuring a chanting chorus and touching on Greek mythology, and The Trooper having a pounding guitar riff and juddering bass along with some strong lyrics.
Better still however is Revelations, Bruce Dickinson's first contribution and a gradually mounting 7-minute assault with slow contemplative verses and a pounding solo. Warfare is the theme of Die With your Boots on and opener Where Eagles dare, the latter of which is especially strong. Indeed the group was almost unique among metal bands of the time in adopting an anti-war stance. Steve Harris bravely took on a science-fiction theme with closer To Tame A Land, a track which I actually think stands up better for not being directly named after Dune.
This was the second of Maiden's string of classic albums, but in my view it's the best, with a little bit of every aspect of metal, and some of their most stridently confident songwriting. I think it exhibits a lot of hunger; a desire to reshape the boundaries and redefine what people expect of heavy metal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Piece of my mind 16 July 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's hard to listen to Piece of Mind without invoking some nostalgia. At the time it was released it was a huge influence on my descent into metal, particularly the glorious gatefold packaging and the two incredibly strong singles. However, time has rolled on and I can now look at it more objectively as my pristine vinyl copy has been consigned to a box under the stairs (along with the 7" singles, the 12" singles and all the picture discs). Thankfully the single 'The Trooper' remains a galloping and breathless romp of Boys Own Daring-Do and the other single off the cd, The Flight of Icarus, is still an enjoyable plodder.

Opener `Where Eagles Dare' kicks things off in style, with new drummer Nicko McBrain announcing his arrival in emphatic style, whilst the Dickinson penned Revelations is a great stop and start builder of a song. In fact pretty much the whole of side 1 hold it's own well, ending with the gloriously frenetic and catchy `Die With Your Boots On', a bona fide Maiden classic and live favourite to this day.

After the aforementioned and evergreen 'The Trooper' you get the mildly disturbing and off the wall 'Still Life' and then, unfortunately, it descends into what essentially are fillers. Any song that opens with the line `In a time when Dinosaurs walked the Earth' is going to raise eyebrows (and not just because its historically inaccurate!), but it's the lack of a basic riff and the vocal histrionics of Dickinson that really grate. 'Sun and Steel' is similarly going nowhere and finally you have the Harris' trademark, long-form, plodding epic based on a book he probably did at O'Level.
