Be Quick or Be Dead - The opening track is a fast and furious rock assault you'd have to be a fool not to love. Arguably the best track here.
From Here to Eternity - Part Four (and to date, the final part) in the Charlotte series. Of the two nineties songs in this series, this is the superior of the two.
Afraid to Shoot Strangers - Slow, dark, gloomy, and hard - this song is a regular masterpiece. Who would've thought an ANTI-war song could be so cool?
Fear Is the Key - Not the best track on the album, but a highly underrated little gem. DON'T SKIP IT!
Childhood's End - Ditto.
Wasting Love - Probably Maiden's most overrated post-eighties song, but it's still a pretty good one that often goes underappreciated by the band's die hard fans.
The Fugitive - This is the tale of a man accused of a crime he didn't commit, who must clear his name. Once again, it's an underrated little gem.
Chains of Misery - ARGUABLY THE BAND'S MOST UNDERRATED SONG EVER. THIS IS NOT A FILLER, PEOPLE!
The Apparition - Yet another one of the "underrated but cool" songs on the album.
Judas Be My Guide - Lyrics are the main strength of this one, especially in the chorus.
Fear Of The Dark - The title track is a hard and gloomy masterpiece. It's no wonder it's become a fan favorite!
Sadly, the remaster series is very disappointing.Read more ›
1-Be quick or be dead : A good opener but not as good as what was done in the 80's. Bruce's voice is not as powerful. 8,5/10
2-From here to eternity : A bluesy kinda song that features again the voice of Bruce trying to imitate AC/DC's style. OK song but not memorable. 8/10
3-Afraid to shoot strangers : Another song about war written by Steve Harris. And a damn good one. 9,5/10
4-Fear is the key : This song reminds me a bit of the song Powerslave (but not as good !). There is a chaotic part in the middle of the song that is not Maiden's style but still good. 8/10
5-Childhood's end : A more traditionnal Maiden style song. Bruce's voice is back on top. 9/10
6-Wasting love : Iron Maiden first real attemp to do a ballad. The result is not cheesy but that's not with that kind of song that they made new fans. And maybe it was the reason why they released it as a single. 8/10
7-The fugitive : Same as Childhood's end. 9/10
8-Chains of misery : Good song with an OK chorus but not more. 8/10
9-The apparition : This song never picks up despite a good instrumental part. Very boring. 6/10
10-Judas be my guide : A catchy song with a good chorus. With the years it gets better and better. 8,5/10
11-Weekend warrior : This song should have been on Tattooed Millionaire (Bruce Dickinson first solo album) or on a B-side. It's not serious and it sounds like AC/DC.
