I cannot fault this album. I only wish "Judas my Guide" was a longer song.

Better than 'No Prayer' but only just. The album as a whole feels tighter and all of the tracks feel like they fit with each other. Unlike their previous effort there are only a few songs that are lacking, although there is a distinct reek of despair that seems to permeate their post-Seventh Son albums.

The best tracks are 'From Here to Eternity', 'Afraid to Shoot Strangers', 'Judas Be My Guide' and the title track. Tracks 7 through 9 could have been ejected to make a better album, but they are still good when compared to some of the mediocre songs that daubed 'No Prayer...'.

The one reason why this is better (but no means even half as good as their first 7 or recent 3 - possibly 4!- albums)is because it does contain one 'classic' track. 'Fear of the Dark' is a belter of a song. It sounds and is classic Maiden remembering why they were so good. Unfortunately, the Maiden lot got far worse after Bruce left and that resulted in the odd album that followed.

If you are new to Maiden, start with 'No Prayer...' and then 'X-Factor', this and 'Virtual XI'. Once you get to the other albums, you might have been put off slightly but, by crikey, they will sound so beautiful!

Having been an avid Maiden, Motorhead, AC/DC and Gillan fan back in the glory days of NWOBHM, I was a little late in adding this to my collection. I was always put off buying it because of some of the negative reviews it received, that it was Bruce's last album and that maybe, his heart wasn't in it any more. It was also the last album to be produced by the legendary Martin Birch and the first Maiden album cover not to feature a Derek Riggs design. How wrong was I! This album ranks up there as one of their best efforts.

This album has not been out of the player for about a week now! It has all the Maiden characteristics that has made them Rock Gods for the last 30 years. The album sees the emergence of Janick Gers as a strong writing force within the band, co writing no less than 5 songs, as this was his 2nd album as co lead guitarist. Released in 1992, it contains the two hit singles 'Be Quick Or Be Dead' a No.2 smash which focused its attention on several political scandals taking place at the time of its release, including the Robert Maxwell banking scandal, European stock market crashes, and the BCCI case and 'From Here To Eternity' which reached No.21 and is the fourth and most recent song in the ongoing saga of 'Charlotte the Harlot'

It's an experimental album also with several tracks being 'not the norm'. 'Fear Is The Key' is superb, another Dickinson/Gers composition certainly has a Deep Purple feel to it and Bruce sounds uncannily like Gillan and even screams a traditional Ian Gillan scream. If I didn't know any different I certainly would have thought it was a Gillan song as it borrows slightly from 'Bluesy Blue Sea' a song written by Gers/Gillan 10 years earlier in 1982 from the album 'Magic'.

Maiden, Maiden, Maiden, after the less than successful No Prayer for the Dying record in 1990, Harris and the boys needed to step up their game for the succeeding release, and so they did, it's no Powerslave but it's definitely on it's way

Track 1: Be Quick or be Dead - Low-Fi done right, one of Maiden's fastest and most aggressive tracks they've ever recorded, Murray and Gers cement a vast improvement from No Prayer, and Bruce showcases what he can really do with his throat, rather than the phoned in sound of No Prayer, Be Quick or be Dead is a superb opening track

Track 2: From Here to Eternity - Like Holy Smoke and Hooks in You, From Here to Eternity never takes itself deadly serious, and allows for another fun romp, with Maiden clearly becoming more comfortable with this style, it actually feels like Maiden, not a tribute band as No Prayer often did, a fun song which showcases some superlative range from the whole band

Track 3: Afraid to Shoot Strangers - If only it could last, an interesting intro doesn't go anywhere, musically the track often feels tired, rather than slow and contemplative as it is clearly attempting, Bruce sounds as if he hasn't slept in days, and it's almost pointless, McBrain provides some nice drumming but like the vocals, Murray and Gers seem uninspired

Track 4: Fear is the Key - Heavier, Intriguing, a decent track that perpetuates the strongest moments from No Prayer with some much more personal lyrics, delivered with much more ferocity than Strangers, one that feels surprisingly emotional, especially with the Dickinson penned line 'nobody cares till someone famous died' about his late friend, Freddie Mercury

Track 5: Childhood's End - Some mesmerising bridges can't save a song which feels like a missed opportunity,
