What? I don't like the Blaze albums, or even the first two, nearly as much as the Bruce stuff. Again, my first truth i posted here was that I hate Maiden fanboys, and I will catch hell for this...but when I think Iron Maiden, and when most of the world think Iron Maiden, I don't think The Clansmen or Sign of the Cross (those songs are alright...not saying they are bad.) But I listen to and love Maiden because Bruce finishes the package. Steve and Adrian and Dave and Nicko are/were always awesome....but Bruce seals the deal for me. Do the non-Bruce songs have a place in the catalogue? Absolutely, but I just don't think it compares to Bruce Dickinson.
That being said, I have only listened to a few Bruce solo albums and never really got into them....so maybe I'm just a bitch.
