Underrated gem in Maidens discography. I'd say the synths divided a lot of fans when this came out (my father being one of them) but I love the ambition and prog direction they were going for. Fantastic metal album from start to finish.

Same operatic cheese, same galloping rhythm section (dum-de-dee-dum-de-dee-dum-de-dee-dooo - this will never sound heavy to me, almost like how you could never look the hard man while whistling and skipping through a sunny meadow), only now with added synth lines and prog arrangements.

I'd rather listen to one of the better Dream Theatre albums than this, and that's not a good thing to realise.
