Product Description

Dernier album avant le passage à vide, Somewhere In Time n'a pas l'éclat de Powerslave, son prédécesseur (Live After Death, qui s'est intercalé entre eux, étant naturellement hors concours, non seulement parce que c'est un live, mais aussi parce qu'Iron Maiden, bête de scène par excellence, s'y montra particulièrement efficace). Pourtant, il se vendra remarquablement bien, Iron Maiden étant alors au faîte de sa popularité. Après les pyramides d'Égypte sur Powerslave, Eddie, le mort-vivant dont l'effigie orne toutes les pochettes du groupe, se retrouve plongé dans un univers futuriste à la Blade Runner et ceci n'est pas sans incidence sur son contenu. Prenant sans doute au mot les critiques qui lui avaient reproché de s'en tenir à la formule bien rodée qui avait fait son succès, Iron Maiden a placé Somewhere In Time sous le signe de l'innovation : les guitares-synthés font ainsi leur apparition, sur disque comme sur scène, aux côtés des bonnes vieilles guitares électriques. Plus mélodiques et moins heavy, les compos de Somewhere In Time ont ouvert une brèche dans l'édifice Maiden et Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son, disque souvent qualifié de "progressif", s'y engouffrera tête baissée. --Hervé SK Guégano

Who would have thought that Iron Maiden would use guitar and bass synthetisers ? And who would have thought that the result would sound great and as heavy as it was on their previous albums ? Well, that's what happened with SIT.
1-Caught somewhere in time : A 7 minutes opener that just "lifts" you into the album. Listen to it with headphones, you'll be blown away. 10/10
2-Wasted years : Adrian Smith first try at a more pop song that would later drive him out of Iron Maiden. Great riff, great chorus, great song. 9,5/10
3-Sea of madness : Very underrated song. It's get better every day. Great display of emotion in the voice of Bruce. 9,5/10
4-Heaven can wait : Very nice melodic and fast song. Interesting lyrics. 9/10
5-The loneliness of the long distance runner : Again, very fast and melodic. The song resumes the near past of the band, especially during the world slavery tour. 9/10
6-Stranger in a strange land : It was chosen to be the 2nd single. Not the best of choices, the weakest song on the album but still a very good one. The solo performed by Adrian Smith is something. 8,5/10
7-Déjà-vu : Another fairly unknown and underrated song that, like Heaven can wait and the loneliness, is very fast and melodic. 9,5/10
8-Alexander the Great : Steve Harris the Great ! Once again, a masterpiece of an epic that is vintage Harris. 10/10
By some fans, this album is not well rated. It's hard to understand because it's one of their strongest efforts ever. The sound blew me away back in 86 and it still does almost 20 years later. One of my favourites Maiden album. A masterpiece.

This record is incredible. When I listen to the songs on this disc, I almost feel as if I am experiencing what the songs are about. The title track is hands down the best opening song I have ever had the pleasure of listening to, which begins with a powerful melodic intro that grabs you by the throat and takes you for a 7 1/2 minute ride. "Wasted Years" is an excellent albeit somewhat pop-oriented song that is inspirational in its lyrical content and also contains a cool solo in the middle. "Sea of Madness" is the heaviest cut on here, with a memorable chorus and a Priest-esque solo. "Heaven Can Wait" often holds a place on Maiden's live setlist to this day, and rightly so; this song was made to be sung along to. "Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner" is a solid track that borders on thrash, but I would take off points because the lyrics are a tad banal. "Stranger in a Strange Land" is my favorite Iron Maiden song and must be heard to be believed. "Deja Vu" is a great tune with a powerful riff and yet another excellent solo. The closing track, "Alexander the Great" is an excellent epic, reminescent of the beloved "Rime of the Ancient Mariner". All in all, a FANTASTIC effort from the Maiden guys, and I would recommend their 21st century albums and *ALL* of their 80s records as well.

In my humble opinion - this truly is the greatest studio album, Maiden have ever produced (rivalled only by Piece of mind) - and i own all but 2 studio albums (Brave new world, and X factor) I am a big fan of Maiden's earlier work - pre 1990's - and for me this album is the epitemy of Iron Maiden's greatness - it combines technical brilliance - with fast, catchy metal riffs. songs like Caught somewhere in time, and Heaven can wait are great examples of what Maiden can do. This album also produces some brilliant but less typival iron maiden songs like Sea of madness and Wasted Years. A must own for any Iron Maiden fan

[Before you start reading this review, I want to apologize for making it so long. I had a lot to say, and there was no short way to do it.]
Although Iron Maiden's first three albums (and one live album) with vocalist Bruce Dickinson were wildly successful, they all followed a very similar sound. In 1986, the band was ready to try something new out. Around this time, guitar and bass synthesizers had arrived, and, you guessed it - the boys in Maiden wanted to try them out. With them, they created one of their masterpieces - the Somewhere In Time album. In 1998 and again in 2002, the band's entire CD catalogue was rereleased as part of a remaster series. Read on for track-by-track comments and grades, as well as my comments on the remaster series.
Caught Somewhere in Time - The opener is a good strong track, with the band in perfect shape. The instrumental opener is priceless.
Wasted Years - A fellow Amazon reviewer considers this to be his all time favorite song from this band. I don't agree with him there, but I do agree with one thing - THIS SONG IS EXCELLENT! The chorus must be heard to be appreciated.
Sea of Madness - An excellent rocker, probably the hardest one on the album. Once again, Dickinson's vocals rule the show.
Heaven Can Wait - The biggest hit off of the album, and with good reason. This is fast-paced melodic rock at its very best! This is also the best version of this song (it puts the live versions availiable on early nineties live albums to shame.)
The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner - An interesting bit of Maiden trivia - That's the longest title ever given to any of their songs! This one doesn't really stand out too much, but it's still an excellent rocker and not worth skipping.
