That said, I don't know if I agree or disagree with that point. It's a tough call for me. Like, for example, The Chemical Wedding is a ton better than The Final Frontier, but to say Bruce's solo work as a whole eclipses post DoD Maiden, I don't know.
Fair enough. I have tons of nostalgia for DoD
Too much to be able to speak of the album objectively.
And yeah, I see your point. I guess AMOLAD is definitely better than Final Frontier, but I can see how some people would easily take it over.... Skunkworks. Or Balls to Picasso. Or Tattooed Millionaire.
