I don't understand the love for Starblind. I've listened to it a few times and thought it was sorta filler ish.

As of now...

Satellite 15...The Final Frontier: 8.5
El Dorado: 8
Mother of Mercy: 9
Coming Home: 5
The Alchemist: 8.5
The Isle of Avalon: 9.5
Starblind: 4
The Talisman: 8.5
The Man Who Would Be King: 6
When the Wild Wind Blows: 9

Avg: 7.6

Pretty damn good.

"El Dorado" is my favorite song here. That will probably surprise a lot of people here because nobody really seems to like it. Hell, for me, this song is up there with "Phantom of the Opera" and "Ghost of The Navigator."

^the only valid time to EVER say "I'm gonna be flamed"

"Mother of Mercy" is very good

"When The Wind Blows" really begins to pick up after a few minutes. I love Bruce's singing after the 8-minute mark.

...I know this probably isn't making idrinkwine732 think highly of me...

I wasn't at all on my first listen either. I couldn't tell where each song began and ended and it just sounded boring. But after listening again a few more times it does grow on you and it's a pretty solid album. This is the first Maiden album with Bruce, except for FOTD, that I didn't like the on the first listen. It's weird because i've gotten so used to Maiden just grabbing me by the throat on every album that letting the album grow on me is a little different for me to do with them.

I know Satellite 15 is supposed to serve as an album/concert intro but it's a rather pointless peice and would've been better served as a separate track to TFF or just scarapped from the album altogether.

I know it's Maiden tradition to open with the first song off the new album but i'm not sure how good of an idea that is. I like TFF but it's not a song that pumps me up and gets me going like most of their album openers do. I don't care much for WD as an opener either but at least it's upbeat enough that I can let it slide. This song isn't at all.

Mother Of Mercy is a really good song. I just hope if they do this live Bruce doesn't strain his voice on the chours because that's what it sounds like here.

I like Isle Of Avalon the best so far and El Dorado which i've been listening to for the last two months is good as well. IOA will be a good addition to the set.

It's weird but I think Maiden will do both The Tailsman and When The Wild Wind Blows live. Both are solid epics and well, it really wound't be a modern day Maiden show if they didn't kill the energy of the crowd by adding in as many songs as possible that have soft two and a half minute intros would it?
