X-factor is a guilty pleasure. It's two or three tracks too long and it's a stark contrast in energy from your classic Maiden sound, but it is legitimately a good album. It was just released at the wrong time. Steve is making up for it though by releasing that same album over and over again out of bitterness and contempt for his fans.

Virutal XI blows though. Overly repetitive, inane choruses galore.
