I don't know where this Brave New World nonsense has come from. I remember back when I got into Maiden, BNW was a landmark album and widely loved by most. It still remains my all-time second favorite Maiden album. I think it is BY FAR the best sounding Kevin Shirley album, and really just captures a great magic that has never been on a Maiden album before or since. There are certainly a couple of iffy songs (The Fallen Angel is the big obvious one), but 3 or 4 of the tracks on there are top 25 all-time Maiden songs for me.
