This album is really not that good. The vocals and the riffs are weak. It's decent, but there are no real great tracks. And Karma Killer and Judas just suck. Hell, if someone put this album on without me having heard it or known what I was listening to I would have no idea Steve had anything to do with it.

I need to listen some more but I think this falls on the Primal Rock Rebellion side of Maiden side projects as apposed to the Bruce Dickinson side. Largely forgettable.

The riffs are the only part of it I really like.

Apart from the horrible mix where the bass drowns out the vocals? That's Steve's trademark

I can't hear the bass that much because I'm listening on computer speakers right now. But hell, with vocals like that I'm fine with hearing too much bass.

Seriously though, this guy isn't that bad but he's just sort of bland.

Listened to it about 3 times now. Hate to say it but I don't think I'll be buying this. Steve's my favorite musician and good for him for doing something he's been wanting to but I'm not a fan. I'll wait for the new Maiden album.

I just started listening and am on the 2nd song. It's not too bad. It sounds like an above average 70's rock album with somewhat above average vocals. Maybe after a few listens, it will kind of grow on me.

Above average?
