Hahah, oh my god, that was ridiculous.

As for the song, eh... I'm still going to buy the CD.

As a fan of some sci-fi stuff, I though the video was pretty cool.

The song was good, but not super impressive. I'm sure it will be a grower like "El Dorado."

A wee bit of a disappointment. It seems like the quality of the songs isn't too stellar, even AMOLAD struck me more than these are. Hopefully the two are some of the weaker tracks on the album.

Agreed. I remember when "Benjamin Breeg" first came out and I thought it was awesome. I still love that song.

Yeah...we've now heard two songs and neither are great. I'm going in with an open mind, but this might be the point in the reunion era where they've gone stagnant.

Different World is the one that got me on board. Breeg still doesn't strike the right chord with me, I don't know why...

I still have hope for this, but it's inclined more towards good than great. Which, for Maiden, shouldn't be the case.

I quite like it, it's definitely different, which is what people wanted. It's important to keep in mind that the album version of this song is twice as long as this version. There's a solid 4 minutes missing.

The way Bruce sings "The Final Frontier" is really awkward.

Why don't they ever release this stuff on the weekends? :hmm: I'll listen when I get home.

Loved it, better than El Dorado IMO, but as Maiden pointed out, there's still more we havn't heard yet.

Because people do things on weekends...
So they release it during the week when all the regular jackoffs are stuck at the office and are wasting time browsing the internet.

I had to watch it on YouTube on my iPhone since I'm stuck at work. I like the verses, but the chorus is more of the same repetition we get on just about every maiden album. Very boring.

Well that's the first good Maiden video since... that's the first good Maiden video.

The song is poor. Not really that different, lyrics are pretty weak and they couldn't be bothered to write a chorus. It sounds like a couldn't-even-be-a-b-side track from the last two albums. Hopefully the missing four odd minutes are completely different.

Also, the special edition is awful. No extra music, no live DVD or anything anyone would actually care about. Just a CD case that won't fit in storage with regular CD cases, and shitty bonus internet content.

Where they can't watch it because 80% of the offices in the world block streaming content.

So, Amazon has a double LP picture disc listed. Anyone know if there's gonna be a regular vinyl version? $35 is a little more than I'd like to spend.

Doesn't look like it. 2 picture discs with a full color gatefold jacket and 2 inserts seems like overkill too. I've heard that pic discs affect the quality of the sound too, but that could just be some herp derp vinyl talk.

Whatever the fuck that was, was awesome.

I'm not really impressed with the song. The chorus and guitar solo are pretty underwhelming. The video is kinda cool but that's the least important thing.

Ugh, shit. Looks like I'll be buying the CD after all.

Lol at people passing judgement based on half a song. For what it's worth, I like it.

I thought the solos were pretty solid.

Liked the song. Not as awesome as El Dorado though.

I thought the video was pretty rad, actually. As for the song, I like it. Not crazy about the chorus, but the verses are awesome.

I've watched the video quite a few times now and I think it's much, much, much better than El Dorado. :party:
