As a long-time Maiden fan I'd resisted for some time buying any of Bruce's solo albums, afraid that I'd be disappointed-- wow! was I wrong!!! This was the first of Bruce's own albums I bought and it blew me away! The weekend I bought it I played and re-played it over and over-- and haven't stopped playing it since. His other solo albums which I also now own are all very impressive but none has matched this one for all-round excellence-- there is no weak song and the coupling of Taking the Queen and Darkside of Aquarius rank with anything Maiden have done before or since. Of course this album also features Adrian Smith on guitar, so you know the standard to expect. The rest of the band are up to grade too, and I can guarantee that if you're a Maiden fan or just a metal/rock fan you'll be mightily impressed by this album-- It's just a pity the cover's not so hot-- Derek Riggs on a rare off-day. Buy Buy Buy!!!
