I loved when they toured for A Matter of Life & Death and played the whole album.
That was fine by me.
I would love for them to play at least 7 tunes from this excellent album live.
My pics would be ...

Senjutsu
Stratego
Writing on the Wall
Lost In a Lost World
Darkest Hour
Death of the Celts
The Parchment
Great choices. The album is growing on me more. I didn't mind when they played most of Book of Souls. Unfortunately, when they do their album-centric tours, some classics get cut. I get it though.

Can anyone sing to Bruce Dickinson lyrics in any of the new songs?
I can’t hear the words I just hear the music.
Last 2 albums is it the mix?

Yeah it sounds like absolute crap. Steve Harris is going deaf and holds too much of an iron grip on the albums with Kevin Shirley.

There are fan made COVERS of the new songs on YouTube with better mixes than the actual album!

Been a Maiden fan since day one. I have listened to this album 4 times and it is not good.

It is filled with long, trying to be epic tropes. It gets worse with every listen.

No, it's not just you!
Not really just him... I found a lot of the songs on Senjutsu could be extensions of songs from Book of Souls or even tunes that didn't make the get. I like Senjutsu. I just don't love it... yet. Need to spin it again.

I can agree with this.

Is that guy still around? Still doing the same ignorant, loudmouth, "If it isn't fast and heavy it isn't good," schtick?

FYI to the ignoramus - Angel of Retribution was far better than Redeemer of Souls.

Yeah, he's still doing the same schtick, only now it's several years old and has worn beyond thin. His schtick has worn so thin there are gaping holes in it.

As such, his reviews are not to be taken seriously. Hell, I don't even know if HE takes them seriously... :lol:

The album doesn’t do much for me. I’m happy for anyone who’s enjoying it, though.

It's better than Book of Souls as I've actually managed to listen to this in one go, but the whole album would be so much better if it was 15-20 minutes shorter.

Solo's are a highlight on this one.

:salut: Someone's favorable won't make like something. Their favorable opinion may have me give something a chance that I never did before. Someone's negative opinion doesn't matter as to whether I like something or not.

Likewise, my opinion matters the same to them.They make their own decisions .

I'm guessing that's the Razorfist guy - not sure why but this video isn't available in the UK (presumably user error on his part). If anyone in the UK is interested in this it is available on Bitchute - https://www.bitchute.com/video/WgQss1S5cAY/

I don't like ALL of the edits here, but I have to say, it greatly improves several of the songs! Especially the opening track and Hell On Earth!
