It’s been spinning in my CD player for a little while but I’m not all that impressed. Their previous offering was in my opinion much better.
This album seems to suffer from the same affliction that Metallica’s St. Anger suffered from.
It sounds like shit. The sound quality of this CD, for some reason, fell in the gutter. It sounds more like a jam session than a polished studio release. It also suffers from so-so lyrics and uninspired tracks that seem to have no cohesion whatsoever. It’s as if they just showed up at someone’s house and started making up music on the spot.
If you are a Maiden fan then you already have this, if you aren’t and are looking for good hard music pick up Brave New World instead.
