In my opinion, Psycho Motel's Welcome To The World, along with Bruce Dickinson's Chemical Wedding are the two greatest albums produced by side-projects of Iron Maiden. In fact, I would argue that those two albums are in fact better than any single album produced under the label of Iron Maiden (with the exception of Live After Death, perhaps).
Welcome To The World is a meeting of Adrian's classic rock influences with more than a hint of a Seattle grunge scene sound. It is pretty accessible, I think. The vocals (both the lyrics and performance) are fantastic, although it should be noted they compare more readily with grunge bands like Alice in Chains than what you would expect from an Iron Maiden side-project. There are fantastic riffs on the cd, which has plenty of heavy tracks. The solos are tasteful and beautiful, including the guest appearances by Scott Gorham and Dave Murray. There's even some progressive metal elements, though they don't steal the scene too much.
To give you an idea of how thoroughly I support this album, I can tell you with absolute certainty that this is the cd I've played the most over the last eighteen months. As far as I'm concerned, Welcome To The World just consists of 'good music', I only wish that there were more bands like this. Welcome To The World seems to combine the right elements of metal, classic rock, blues and grunge in just the right way. It never seems to meander aimlessly, the songs don't have anything unnecessary in them, but they do have what it takes to be absolutely spell-binding. It's both aggressive and melodic, in my opinion landing right in the sweet spot, balancing the two in a way so few bands can.
I hope I've persuaded someone to buy this cd, which far outstrips its predecessor in my opinion, because I don't think many of you will regret it. It doesn't sound exactly like Maiden, but any appreciator of good music should enjoy this cd on some level. It really is a forgotten gem of an album.
