@Titan BoS wasn't titled after a Mayan word, and didn't have a Mayan-word inspired track either, though... I don't think they're going kawai on us, and the first single also supports this, but I guess maybe one song might have some Japanese flavour, in the intro or sth...

All we could ask from Maiden is for an album to be decent. Even if it's boring after a while, at least to be decent. This being said, All post-reunion albums have been more than that, Brave New World is a masterpiece and the rest all have some great cuts, so I doubt this will be an exception.

Album art will make a dope t-shirt, agreed.

Well Rugal, I'd feel much better if this was 41 instead of 82 mins because I'd assume they made a consistent, tight effort. 9/10 times I'd take quality over quantity, but I can understand your sentiment with Maiden.

Rugal dude some of us aren't complaining. In my case, I stated that I'm being picky. I'm an album listener, and some of the 82 minute album will most likely be a bit bloated. Quality over quantity indeed. Been a fan for 35 years myself, seen em live 15 times. With that, I'm happy to take the 82 minutes that they're giving us....

I like to be optimistic....82min of quality is better than 41. I don't think the lenght of the album put quality at risk, at least when we're talking about Maiden. On the other hand I realize they are not going to make their best album ever as we speak, but I don't expect that neither. For me they reached the peak of they're career with Somewhere in time.

'82min of quality is better than 41'

Fact, if we get it though.

The Book Of Souls in bloated - how many of us can say that we love The Man Of Sorrows? Tears Of A Clown is substandard Maiden despite its glimpses of catchiness. The Red And The Black is amazing, but it does go on for a few minutes longer than it should. There are a few others that are good, but not great. BUT, there is 60 minutes of amazing shit on it, and that's the point. The longer the album, the greater the chance of running into a song or two that probably could've been clipped in order to make the whole an absolute masterpiece.

Stoked for this, even not too optimistic that it will be outright great..

But Yeah, these triple vinyls (as beautiful as the one for 'book of Souls' is) obviously are a cash grab...82 minutes of music easily fit onto 2 LPs without the slightest compromise of quality. Side 4 would be the longest with 24 minutes, which is perfectly fine.

Not that anyone would care about CDs anymore, but having an 82 minutes album in order to make it a 2Cd set is also rather gimmicky...

Dance of Death is a 2.5 and Paschendale is a 3. The Longest Day is a 4.5 and like 3 or 4 other songs on AMOLAD are at least a 4. No More Lies might be a 3.5 but everything else on Dance of Death is utterly forgettable. Worst Dickinson era album.. Everything on there sounding as forced and thoughtout as the album cover.

A Matter of Life and Death has 3-4 really damn good songs, but the rest just kind of blend together (it not being mastered doesn't help), and is just too overly long for how little ideas there are. It goes:

1. Brave New World
2. The Book of Souls
3. Dance of Death
4. The Final Frontier
5. A Matter of Life and Death

Bit of a side-note, Satellite 15 was one of the most creative things they did in like 20 years, and it's a shame they only explored that sound for like 3 minutes.

titan bro, ya know 2000s Iron Maiden (sans dance Of Death) is like 90s Fate to me. Underrated and damn close to the classics!!

That didn't feel like 7min to me at all. I've been checked out on IM for a while but everyone here is saying they've been going strong and I dug this so I'm gonna spin them all day and see what I've been missing. FTR I'm a Killers guy, so maybe they'll have moved out of my sweet spot but, again, this was great, the riffs are cool and at first I was like 'drummer is just being clever for the sake of it, he must be bored' then it all kinda came together and the foreshadowing/hinting and reprisals were very cool and tied the song together while keeping it moving. They're so pro at this lol

That IS way better. Two albums in a row without background. Are they going cheap or what?

At least Eddie has been excellent both times, unlike other failures like DoD or the (Retrospectively) mediocre Final Frontier, which isn't *bad*, but isn't among their best

Their last great artwork was Fear of the Dark imo

I like BNW's concept but not really much the execution

I also adore Virtual XI's art, BNW of course, and then AMOLAD's cover had been imprinted on my 12y.o brain when I saw it on someone's t-shirt and I went ''Damn, look at those skeletons.. Now THAT'S wild'', so I love it, although there's not even an Eddie on there.

People complaining about the album length...I don't get it. Like you don't need to listen to the whole album in one sitting every time you listen to it. You can skip songs...

Then that means it is an album with good songs on it. Not a good album. What you're describing is the definition of filler

tbh even if there wasn't any objective filler musically it'd be a slog with how Bruce's sounding now lol

Amazon is selling that silver vinyl edition at 16.99 currently. Gonna laugh so hard if they actually honor that price (clearly an error).

Been hoping to see a new album from them! Book of Souls was awesome, glad to see they're sticking to lengthy outings.

Brave New World was their best album. Long albums are the most artistic. Yeah right they do it for the money.

38-45 is the perfect length for an album

most of my favorite albums lean towards the longer end
maiden's just been going overblown for the sake of money and Bruce has degraded so much as a vocalist that i expect this to suck anyway

I keep imagining they'll cut the crap and release a tight set of concise songs again. I'm delusional.
