After reading some of the reviews for this record I was initially put off from buying. I was however lucky to listen to a download of the album and was blown away at how good it is.

I therefore took the plunge and bought the album. Whilst the tunes are still fantastic - some of the best Maiden have done. However, be aware that the mix of the vinyl album is absolutely abysmal - the sound is veiled and the band appear to be playing behind a very thick curtain losing some of the vitality of the music whether this is because it is on a picture disc or just laziness of the producer / engineer only the record company know.

Don't let this put you off from getting this album, it really is one of their best

Many reviewers have said that the album needs several listens to fully appreciate it. I couldn't agree more - but believe me, your patience will be rewarded. As ever, historical and literary influences are at the heart of many of the songs. I particularly like "The Alchemist" (hands up who had heard of John Dee - should have listened more in history!). "Isle of Avalon" and "When the Wild Wind Blows" are also great songs. My favorite, however, is "The Talisman". Listening to this whilst on a windy coastline in Cornwall recently gave an extra edge to the maritime lyrics!

First off, this album is really a great album as others have said.

However, don't bother with the vinyl.
The picture discs look great, artwork is nice but the packaging is cheap and the disc sleeves fell apart on me the first time i took them out.
Add to that the sound - I don't really know how they could get the mix soooo wrong but somehow the studio managed it.

The music sounds like it was recorded once, mixed once, then pressed to vinyl and burned to CD.
They should have mixed it differently, because the record sounds... almost "crowded". There is too much bass, too much treble, almost like they tried to cram too much equalisation in there, or maybe compressed too much of it.
Vinyl sounds great because it doesn't *need* any of that the way that people think CDs do, which is why I'm thinking they didn't bother cleaning it up for the vinyl pressing.

I was very disapointed, and the fact that this is a good album almost made up for it but not quite.
I did read similar reviews to mine before buying, but I though "ah theyre probably audiophiles with technics ls1200s and 0.5 ohm speakers". I'm just an average person who likes records, but even to my untrained ear this sounded bad.
Wish I'd listened...

Moral of the story is get the CD instead.

Iron Maiden's fifteenth studio album is another scorcher! There is enough here to satify the traditionalist Maiden supporters, but plenty of new vibes to draw in those as yet unconverted to the Maidenites! The beginning of the album is unlike any other, but the hard guitar riffs and Bruce's vocals soon steady the ship with The Final Frontier. There is the usual Maiden fair of film and book inspiration, but the multiple-layered Coming Home where Bruce waxes lyrical about his plane and flying all over the world, could even stand as a metaphor for his time apart from the band. The digital download doesn't list who wrote the tracks but the influence of Adrian Smith and Bruce Dickinson seems to be very comfortable with Steve Harris' songwriting on this album. All of the tracks are stormers and compare favourably with the strongest tracks of the last three albums. For any Maiden fan oldest to remember Raymond Brigg's When The Wind Blows will find the last track completely haunting. Up the Irons!

its iron maiden, of course it gets all the stars, and i dont have to go on about how good the album is since theyre back on track with the old school maiden style riffs, vocals, bass n drums.

thanks maiden for another brilliant album!!

This is a truly amazing album, with all the ingredients an Iron Maiden album should have. Amazing contributions from all the great writers of the band. A must.

Some time ago, I posted a review for this album saying why I thought this wasn't a great album, or at least an average one. However after much more listening, I am now going to post an updated, more relevent review.

1. Satellite 15... the final frontier 9/10
Epic intro to the album, nice buildup in the first half, the vocals sound fantastic when they enter. It then kicks into a more typical, awesome sounding maiden track.

2.El dorado 7/10
Despite the vocals being slightly offkey at times, this song is pretty good, the chorus is great and the verses have a nice galloping beat to them.

3.Mother of mercy 7/10
Not a bad track, although the lyrics are slightly cliched and the vocals are pretty offkey, so it's not the best maiden track or the best track on the album

4.Coming home 10/10
A superb track, the guitars and the vocals sound fantastic, the chorus is brilliant and the song is a joy to listen to.

5.The alchemist 8/10
This one is a more typical sounding iron maiden track, this is the shortest track on the album, and has a decent chorus. The vocals are cool and the guitars sound great as always. Overall a very good maiden track.

6.Isle of avalon 8/10
Slightly strange sounding song, yet it has a really nice feel to it, and shows that maiden can still show a few different tunes even now.

7.Starblind 7/10
This one is a bit of a filler, not a bad track but nothing special. The buildup is pretty good though, and the guitars and vocals sound good.

8.The talisman 9/10
Amazing acoustic intro, fantastic buildup into a great overall iron maiden track
