Sorry for you Rage..... It's sad to know that there are people who didn't find the maiden precious music skills....Brave New World and AMOLAD kills... Bruce's voice? No comments for this...

Hell yea!! Can't wait for this one. Although I could not get into AMOLAD right away, it has really grown on me. BNW is still my favorite one since Bruce came back, I think that album is just brilliant.

About Bruce's voice, to me he sounds as great as ever. I think anyone who saw them on the Somewhere Back In Time tour will agree :)

What do I expect from them? as always, 100% quality music. I grew with them since the 80´s, and, when they decide the time to quit, a part of my life will be over. they are the soundtrack of my whole life.

Iron Maiden are possibly the most important band to me ever. I will buy this like I have bought everything else and I'm sure I will love it.

Agreed! One of the most influential, for sure. And they reach out to fans of all genres of metal too.

what´s more, lot of people who are not involved in metal know who Iron Maiden is, admiring their influence in all related not only to music but also in any other aspects. When I was in Mérida (Spain) during the last tour, everybody knew what Iron Maiden meant, and I am talking of a city with a population of around 50.000 inhabitans. Even grannies having a walk on the ancient roman ruins stopped us and asked about the show of Maiden, not mentioning the rest of the bands!
What´s more, Mérida held every year a really important classic theatre festival in the roman theatre since 1954. Well, in 2008, on that friday, the town Hall decided to cancel the evening performance.... because Iron Maiden was on stage, 10 kms far! I can assure you, Mérida classic theatre festival is one of the most importants in the world, so it was a hard decission for the major.
Just a anecdote.

I never had anything with Iron Maiden. The only song I sort of like is Wasted Years.

Well not everything is interresting for everyone! :wink: As I said, I really don't like Iron Maiden at all. And I grew up with it becuase my dad always used to play it on the radio. But I just didn't like it. And still don't like it. Wasted Years is the only song I play now and then.

Well, if its not your style, its not your style, but, of the many things Dance of Death was, boring was not on the list.

I don't like long songs (6+ minutes) that are pointless and boring. ADOD has several of them and the last one too. I couldn't finish listening to both albums in one sitting ...

Same goes to Metallica's last effort.

there was a full sentence there, about shurik not liking songs that shurik thinks are boring. most people don't like songs they think are boring though so it really tells us nothing, apart from maybe that shurik can't comprehend or have a decent sense of humanity much since shurik also calls them pointless and the songs have rather important lyrical content.

A song is a combination of words and music. If one of those doesn't work, the song usually doesn't work as a whole. Dumb lyrics+good music I can tolerate, Dumb lyrics+bad music or good lyrics with bad music - not so much. If you are good at writing lyrics but bad with music - release poetry books.

And don't worry about my sense of humanity, it's doing great.

So... 3 guitar solos=bad music??? Because that's how you accomplish a 6 minute song.

Some songs are good enough being long tracks, some of them are bullshit. As always.Likes. No matter.This is a forum, it would be really boring having all of us the same opinions.

Yep, people may or may not like them but they can't deny Maiden have not only influenced many bands but also have a big impact on a lot of people's lives.

As far as Dance of Death goes, it's not my favorite Maiden album, but it does have some great songs. I guess after BNW, I was expecting more. Long, boring songs? Well to each their own, not everybody has to like the same things.... To me the most important thing is if I like it.

"It's boring and puts me to sleep" isn't enough for you? I love and enjoy all Rush's long songs for example, and they do have lots of them and 2112 is 20+ minutes long. They just know how to make them interesting enough.
I am not a musician, so I can't describe in technical terms what's wrong with Maidens's last 2 albums or Metallica's last one. The only thing I can tell is my feelings while listening to them.

I agree with Shurik. i am not a musician. I can only say I LIKE IT, or I DON´T LIKE IT.
BTW, I like the new album of Metallica, with their long songs. No problem if the track catch you. So, the same for Maiden and any other band.
