5.0 out of 5 stars More of the same - yes please, 3 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Dance Of Death (Audio CD)
I agree with both the positive and the negative reviews of this album. The positive reviews say that this is Maiden back to what they do best - and that is definitely the case. The negative reviews say this is Maiden continuing to do what they have been doing since 1984 - and that is definitely the case. This is Iron Maiden for God's sake. What do you expect?
Melodic intros, galloping bass lines, mad soloing guitars, powerful drumming, over the top theatrical lyrics. They've been doing it since Bruce joined the band, and they'll carry on doing it. If you like Maiden, you'll love it. If you don't like Maiden you'll hate it. That's all you need to know.
I don't think there's a bad song on this album. One of my fellow reviewers says that No More Lies and Gates Of Tomorrow are fillers - pretty bloody good fillers then. The title track is pure Stonehenge by Spinal Tap - as the mandolin-like acoustics kick in, you can almose imagine the dwarf kicking the 18-inch monument over. The lyrics are so gloriously over-the-top you can't help but smile. But I repeat, that's what Iron Maiden are all about. Steve Harris wouldn't have it any other way. I think it's brilliant. A million times better than Brave New World anyway!
