extremely solid release,
This review is from: Brave New World (Audio CD)
released in 2000 iron maidens brave new world is the 12th maiden album and marked the return of brucey dickinson on vocals and guitarist adrian smith to the band,which also resulted in three main guitars to the maiden sound.
The album has a certain progressive feel to it which was a classic maiden formula and with the band united again the songs are filled with passion and venom and the quality is relentless at times.Opening strongly with the wicker man which is punchy and certainly heavy its clear that the good times are back with maiden again and regardless of how you felt about the two albums that blaze sang on you have to admit its good to have bruce back on vocals,it just seemed to give the band back their collective bite.
The quality continues with key tracks like blood brothers,out of the silent planet,the fallen angel and brave new world,there isnt alot wrong with this except that some songs are so epic that they lose a bit of shine towards the end but thats a small gripe so in summary brave new world is yet again another excellent maiden release.
