I wouldn't say Maiden is going downhill at all. Maiden's career progression as of late is a lot more horizontal rather than vertical in my opinion. The new album ranks among the top half dozen or so albums of theirs IMO, but you can't really fairly compare it to something like Piece of Mind... the style of music is completely different. The mindset is completely different, which is good I think... not in ANY way a takedown to old Maiden, I love it dearly, but I just think it's good that they haven't been doing the same thing for like 20 years.

You seem to be wrapping many complaints into one. What bothers you: the song lengths? the absence of grooves? attempts at lyrical "depth"?

However you feel about the rest of the song, the first main verse riff of "The Legacy" might be the best groove in any Maiden song.
