HOLY FUCK. I think I just felt a rip in the space time continuum. (Or it could just be gas - I don't know.)

I agree with the first part, but not the second, mostly based on them not really being folk metal...

This is pretty much exactly why he's good. Those two albums would have sucked major ass with a Bruce-clone... or even with Bruce possibly.

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.

Blaze's solo albums are great. 'The X Factor' is great. All of Bruce's solo albums are great.

Does Blaze compare to Bruce as a vocalist? No. Is Blaze still a great vocalist? Yes. Is the Blaze-era Maiden stuff as good as the Bruce-era stuff? Some of it. Not all. Is it as good as the Di'Anno-era stuff? Most of it, not all.

The three things should always be considered separately. Unless you're Journey and try to hire a clone of your most popular singer, when you change vocalist you change your sound, and the new sound should be considered on its own with one simple question "is it a good album?" The question of "is this as good as the old albums?" should never be asked when considering the quality of the album, only as a discussion point.

And that's why 'Death Magnetic' is awesome, and you all suck.

Wait... different argument

I don't think you can that though. Yes, all three singers are different....but it is mostly the same musicians (Steve at least). I am not saying Dianno and Blaze are terrible singers, but in the big picture of IRON MAIDEN, Bruce is the best of the three.

Yeah, I wasn't sure exactly how to say it, but they're not really a Black Metal band either. They're not Folk in the sense that a lot of people consider Folk Metal, more of a Celtic Folk type of deal, but I wouldn't really classify anything but the old stuff Black Metal.
