I disagree haha but then again I think I'm the only Maiden fan that thinks Seventh Son of a Seventh Son is overrated. IMO Powerslave, Number of the Beast, Peace of Mind, Somewhere in Time, and Brave New World are all better than Seventh Son. call it blasphemy if you want but I just don't think Seventh Son is Maiden's best work
The only Maiden Song I've ever heard on the radio is Run to the Hills, which I love, but at the same time kinda pissed me off because it's the only Iron Maiden song that a lot people know, as sad as that may be...
I agree that four guitars is too many (frankly I think they'd do just fine with just two), but maybe a couple live shows where they only play songs from their first album with dennis playing along would be cool. Just a thought.
In fact, each member change has seemingly impacted the band in a large way, which I think shows how good they are at playing their instruments and also the major song writing contributions that go on in the band. Perhaps i can even go so far to say that looking at it this way, perhaps we could say Adrian was the largest influence on the band, as his leaving and returning really took away and brought back large sections of the band's sound?
I couldn't agree with you more, the first time I heard songs off fear of the dark (the first maiden that I had ever heard without H), I knew that a major part of the band left with Adrian.
ok so I go to a Catholic high school and yesterday my teacher said a prayer at the beginning of class and it was the first part of revelations. the part that starts O God of earth and alter... Who knew that I would know a prayer at school because of Maiden?
Well my dad was the one who got me into maiden but the thing he only followed them until somewhere in time. He syas that the album that he lost maiden on, but I made him listen to BNW and he seems to like blood brothers.
