Iron Maiden: Powerslave

Sound — 10
The first thing I can say about the sound on Powerslave is that it always blends in nicely to the theme and the lyrics of the song. The second thing is that all the introductions to the songs just jump straight into your head and when you hear that song again, just by hearing the intro you could name the song. The Bass on the album might be called dominiating by some people because the bass seems like a different kind if lead guitar which I can kind of agre with. Steve Harris makes sure that by the end of learning a Maiden song your finge will fall off - playing Iron Maiden really does hurt...

Lyrics — 8
There really isn't much I can say about the lyrics on any album really, Bruce Dickinson is a completely immense singer which is one point. On Powerslave, the lyrics fit with the music etc. and when you see the title of a song, expect the lyrics to fit in with the theme perfectly...

Overall Impression — 10
I personally think that this album is one of the best I've heard - if you want to hear parts of the songs on it - go to www.ironmaiden.com - select albums - click Powerslave then select the song you want to hear... Enjoy Kiddies!
