I was, and always will be a Bruce Dickinson fan, so like many Maiden fans, I imaturely refused to even hear the X-Factor. I was living in the Golden Years. I hated everything after 7th Son. Then they hit me with this Blaze b.s. Oh well. Time however is a funny monster. I found the X-Factor at a used CD shop and figured what the heck. So X number of years later(smile folks), I am intrigued by the sounds on this album. Blood on the Worlds hands, and of course the Sign of the Cross are awesome! What an underated album. Blaze was an excellent singer on this album, and Maiden sounded very tight. This album is by far better than Fear of the Dark, No prayer for the Dying and their various live crap that was released. Up the Irons!!!

OK, most people might believe that iron maiden is nothing without Bruce Dickinson. What I believe is this: although I'm a huge fan of Brucie, Iron Maiden is NOTHING without Steve Harris, the man who started it all! The brilliant songwriting of Harris stands out well in this CD. OK, Bailey might not be as good as Dickinson, but anyone who tries to take Dickinson's place has big shoes to fill! Bailey is still good, as shown through tracks like 'sign of the cross' and 'man on the edge'. It is not the best maiden CD ever, but these guys are legends of metal. Don't u forget it!

After Bruce Dickinson left at the conclusion of his farewell Maiden tour in 1993,Iron Maiden was a band left without a singer,wich meant they had to search for a new singer for the band.There were rumors that Paul Di'Anno who was previously singer of Maiden back in the late seventies and early eighties and did vocals on the band's first two albums,"Iron Maiden" and "Killers" would come back shortly after.The rumor proved to be nothing but a rumor as Iron Maiden announced in 1994,that Blaze Bayley the former singer of Wolfsbane was chosen as the band's new singer putting an end to the Di'Anno comeback rumors.The band issued their Bayley album in 1995,"The X Factor" who receved mixed reaction from fans mostly due to Bayley's singing on the album.Fans have in average,a bad opinion of Blaze but he's actually pretty good even if he's no Bruce Dickinson,but if you can get past that you might discover a great Iron Maiden album.

By this time Bruce was gone and they focused on releasing an album with Bayley and i have to say that they did a solid job and that out of the Blaze albums this is the better of the two as it has better singing,songs,and the album had a better feeling overral.With Blaze the band would have to cut some regular songs from thier live shows such as "Run To The Hills" because he couldn't sing it,his style didn't allow him to.Also he had breathing problems and was allergic to many stage elemnts wich in consequences forced Maiden to cut their tours short due to that,wich contributed largely to Bruce coming back with them in 1999.Yet with Blaze they could do things they couldn't before,wich they did on this album as the album has unique dark feeling and songs that only Blaze could do(Bruce tried,but he couldn't do much with that material).

I am a diehard Iron Maiden fan, and I was devastated by Bruce Dickinson leaving the band and being gone so long. I originally bought this album (The X Factor) and didn't realize till I started listening to it that it wasn't Bruce!! I immediately put it aside for a long time before reading a review here on Amazon.com about it and finally decided to give it another try with an open mind.
I was still disappointed and it was probably because I kept expecting it to sound like Bruce on vocals. Finally, after what seems like an eternity has passed, I can appreciate this one for what it was/is: The band wanted to make an album, Blaze Bayley was available, so they did it. It's a good album, but it's at the bottom of my Iron Maiden list. It's worth listening to if you're an Iron Maiden fan, or maybe even if you're not (maybe you won't have any personal biases for rejecting it like I did).
The songs are decent, with a few memorable ones, but Blaze's style in many places seems like he's halting or waiting for the music to catch up to him and the band is waiting for him to catch up to them. It makes for some really strange pauses in the music/vocals as if their timing is off a little. (If I can find specific examples I might add them later.) The music is actually really good and sounds like Iron Maiden should, but Blaze brings them down in a few places and it's not what I would consider a "great addition" to the Iron Maiden legacy. And a two and a half minute lead-in of chanting, sound effects, and slow single guitar notes makes for a boring entrance to the album.
So, even though Blaze is a blemish on this Iron Maiden offering, it's still worth 4 stars.

i own six cd albums by iron maiden(and a hoody?), and have heard, lots of times, a further four and i would have to say that this is their best cd yet. after dickinson, bayley does get a bit of getting used to, and is still not as good(although not far off).the first three songs are absolutely brilliant and The Sign Of The Cross is definately one of the best maiden songs to date(if you really hate bayley get rock in rio for the same song with dickinson singing). bayley has got a kind of epic sound to his voice although i'd have to say he sounds a little bit shaky. apart from the new singer everything else is normal maiden material.great guitaring.
