Poor Blaze Bayley. Unlike most people, I don't really blame him for how the record turned out. Can you imagine being given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of working with a band as big as Iron Maiden, replacing a man who is regarded as one of the greatest frontmen of all time, Bruce Dickinson?

I can't really say all that much about The X Factor. Most of my complaints about it has already been well stated in my reviews of Iron Maiden's other 90s records.
