'F*** I missed it' drummer says right at the end of the last track..exactly what I was thinking...
on 20 October 2015
'F*** I missed it' the drummer chirps at the end of this fine record. Just listened to this a second time and Im impressed - Sits comfortably with their best albums - has a classy feel with each song strongly crafted and some really memorable tracks too.
So yes 'F*** I missed it' was the perfect way to end the album because I was thinking exactly the same thing.......Nomad is astounding unto itself but every track is memorable and adventurous and hardrock tastic!
Anyway MAIDEN TOP ALBUMS EVER that you should check out if you are a newbie.....
1 The Number of The Beast (THE ALBUM)
2 The Book Of Souls (almost THE ALBUM - but BEAST has the history)
3 Piece Of Mind (a REVELATION - contains my new fave tracks ever)
4 Seventh Son of the Seventh Son (one of the strongest full of classics)
5 Somewhere in Time (full of catchy choruses - some of the best lyrics of all the albums)
6 Fear Of The Dark (The last of the iconic records from their first peak years - now is their new peak era of course.....)
7 Powerslave (love it but love the above more!)
9 Iron Maiden (whilst outside the top few - some all time brilliant tracks and I like the production on this record despite its rep as poorly mixed - I think it really works and it takes you back - Strange World is a fave- it all is!!)
8 Brave New World (my newest addition to the top 10 - its really good and has just moved up my chart - but just look up further from here...its a pretty steep climb for any album to get in there.......love out of the silent planet..the talisman....the wicker man is a great opener..but the Nomad is one of their best ever....)
10 A Matter Of Life And Death - Very strong return to form this one - Just listen to These Colours Dont Run.....great tracks mostly from start to finish.......Id say this Brave New World and of course BofSouls are the albums which truely rock from the last 16 years.......
Anyway - a brilliant band - there is no denying these guys along with Black Sabbath are the initiators of true Heavy Metal....great great stuff!!!!!!
Pop Quiz - which album was more important Beast or Paranoid???!!!
