Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.ca

One of the most comforting things about living in the UK is knowing what you can rely on: bank holidays will be rainy, beans will be on the breakfast menu and Britain's homegrown heavy metal heroes will continue rocking well into their twilight years. Motorhead do it, Ozzy Osbourne does it and, with Brave New World, Iron Maiden prove that they can do it, too. Featuring the return of vocalist Bruce Dickinson, after his self-imposed, six-year exile from the band, Brave New World is the sound of classic Iron Maiden at their finest. The guitars--augmented by the addition of a third guitarist, Adrian Smith--still scream along at top volume, with their signature blistering solos and frantic time changes. Songs like hit single "The Wicker Man", the anthemic "Blood Brothers" and "The Nomad" all bear the hallmarks of Maiden's best work--that is, they rock. Brave New World is the triumphant sound of one of Britain's heavy metal institutions returning to the top of the heap. --Robert Burrow --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

It's great to see so many 5 star ratings and so few 1 star ratings for Brave New World. The album isn't perfect, it suffers from the repetitive chorus syndrome that the band had with Blaze Bayley as singer. Yet, it is so close to 5 stars that there is no point splitting hairs.

Brave New World features the three guitar lineup of Gers, Murray and Smith for the first time in the studio, but not the first time ever. Smith guested on "Running Free" with Gers & Murray at the Donington 1992 show. Additionally, Steve Harris had flirted with a three guitar lineup very early in Maiden's career. The original Iron Maiden lineup consisted of two guitar players named Terry Rance and Dave Sullivan. Neither were standout solists, but Dave Murray was. Harris' concept was to bring in Murray as a third guitarist to solo over the other two. They didn't like that idea and they split. Since then, fans have wondered what Maiden would sound like with three guitars. Wonder no more!

Brave New World is also the first full Maiden album produced by Kevin "Caveman" Shirley (Dream Theater - he did the "Wraithchild" promo single prior to this), and features cover art partially done by original Maiden artist Derek "Dr. Death" Riggs. Anticipatiom ran high!

I don't think many Maiden fans were disappointed. Even the staunchest fans like me didn't think Blaze Bayley had what it took to sing Maiden's back catalogue live, and on the last tour his voice was very shaky (at least at the show I heard). Bruce, on the other hand, had come off a pair of very heavy and well received solo albums called The Chemical Wedding and Accident Of Birth, featuring Roy Z and Adrian Smith on guitar. His voice sounded very strong and mature.

And I mean this in a good way. I've owned this album since it came out (4+ years ago) and I still have not grown tired of it. Brave New World is how heavy metal music sounds when composed AND executed properly. Every band member gives a first-rate performance; Bruce continues to amaze with air raid siren vocals aplenty, whilst Dave, Adrian, and Janick deliver some powerful riffage and soloing. Of course, one cannot forget about the thundering rhythm section, courtesy of Steve and Nicko, both of whom could give Geddy Lee and Neil Peart runs for their money. All the songs are top-notch, but "Ghost of the Navigator" and "Blood Brothers" would be the top candidates for best track.
Any fan of rock music should give this album a try.

Just when we thought Heavy metal and Iron Maiden were slowly dying, life gave us Brave New World, the album that features the triumphant return of singer Bruce Dickinson and guitarist Adrian Smith. The classic line-up that produced classics like Number of the beast, Piece of mind, Powerslave, Somewhere in time and the best album of all-time 7th son of a 7th son, was back plus Janick Gers who replaced Smith in the realy 90's.
This album is simply brilliant and proved that good music can still be made despite the horrible decade that was ending (the nineties). Here is a review of all the songs on the album :
1- Wickerman : Maiden is back ! Great opener. Very near the quality of Aces high and Moonchild. 10/10
2- Ghost of the navigator : Very nice follow-up. Brings a new dimension to the traditionnal Maiden. The riff is very similar to Ozzy's I don't know. 9/10
3- Brave New World : Beautiful song. Bruce's voice is stronger than ever. 10/10
4- Blood brothers : Another Steve Harris classic. 9/10
5- The mercenary : A fast rocker that, even though, is not a classic, does the job. 8,5/10
6- Dream of mirrors : A "new" Maiden kind of song. A great epic. Bruce's voice is almost over the edge. 9/10
7- Fallen angel : One of the reasons we love Adrian Smith, a good rocker with a great solo. 9/10
8- Nomad : A great epic with a wonderful instrumental break. This song could fit easily on Piece of mind. 9/10
9- Out of the silent planet : A fresh new Maiden song with a great acoustic intro. 9/10
10- The thin line between love and hate : The weakest song on the album. Some parts are very good, some are just OK. 7,5/10
Overall, the gift that die hard Maiden fans didn't expect.

Brave New World (2000) is the first Iron Maiden studio album with Bruce Dickinson on vocals since 1992's Fear of the Dark, and the first Maiden album with Adrian Smith on guitar since 1988's Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. Retaining guitarist Janick Gers (whose Maiden debut was 1990's No Prayer for the Dying) and longtime guitarist Dave Murray, Iron Maiden now features a "three axe attack." Rounding the rhythm is founder Steve Harris on Bass, and Nicko McBrain on drums.
The Wicker Man - 100% Brave New World starts off with an instant classic! The Wicker Man is easily one of my favorite Iron Maiden songs, and features an excellent solo from Adrian Smith. This is Iron Maiden's triumphant return to the top!
Ghost of the Navigator - 100% With a building intro and that crashes into the verse, this song is head-banging heaven, and by now, any doubts that Iron Maiden could ever re-capture their former glory are laid to rest.
Brave New World - 100% The first three songs on Brave New World are one heck of a winning streak. Brave New World starts slow, and builds into a made-for-concert sing-a-long chorus. The title track builds into quite a heavy track, featuring great performances by the entire band.
Blood Brothers - 100% Iron Maiden is really on a roll. Blood Brothers, the only track on Brave New World penned exclusively by Steve Harris, slows things down a bit. Said to be written about his late-father, this song is emotionally charged, and features some great vocals by Bruce. The last solo, by Janick Gers, is one of my favorite moments of the entire album, it just carries the song forward so perfectly.
The Mercenary - 90% This song charges forward at a feverish pace, completely forgetting our few minutes of slow down with Blood Brothers.
