TOP 50 REVIEWERon August 24, 2010
This is a great Iron Maiden CD. So was the last one (A Matter Of Life and Death). The opening of "Sat. 15-The Final Frontier" is one of the coolest peices of music that Maiden have ever come up with. There really are no weak cut's on the CD and it clock's in at almost 80 min. If you like the Prog. side of Iron Maiden this is the CD you have been waiting for. All the songs are long and the music is complex. Bruce Dickinson's voice has held up really well and as allways Steve Smith's bass playing is out of this world. I saw Maiden earlier this summer and because the CD was not out yet they only did one track. I hope now that it's out their set list changes and we get a killer DVD from this CD.

I am going to be brief here, because I really love this album and I don't want to over analyze. I read a BW&BK review that said, "The new Maiden has to be even better than A Matter Of Life And Death". I think it is. It combines the stylings of old school Maiden with new Maiden. Lots of great Adrian co-writes on this one, catchy tunes where you forget that 8 minutes just went by. Bruce is still in great voice and 'Arry's writing is up to his old lofty standards. Songs are diverse and distinctly memorable. The "Three Amigos" are soloing like mad all over the album, the solos are as catchy as the songs. And of course, Nicko...I have no idea how he can keep up the pace sometimes, but he does. Production by Kevin Shirley may well be the best of the four Maidens he's done. You be the judge.

5 stars.

I love Iron Maiden, on studio cd, live cd or just live in Quebec city almost every years! I must admit, I was not impress at the first listening, and the opening track got a 4 minutes of something I skip, because I am afraid of burning my subwoofer with Steeve Harris base guitar again ! But I like this album. Songs are in my head and I like to sing some couplets with Bruce again and again. A little smooth, but very very good melodic Maiden. They will never loose their sound. I hope. Buy it, or download it then buy it if you are not sure, thats what I've done and I will go see maiden live again as soon they come back in my city for sure, hoping they will play of these tracks again :) drheckle1

The band is ageless as they continue to produce epic and fresh new songs. Great album for both the long time Maiden Fans and the younger folks.

Iron Maiden - The Final Frontier is an epic Album, loaded with Classic Maiden bass riffs, Killer Solos and Excellent Lyrics. From start to Finish the final frontier is a concept album that rivals seventh son of a seventh son. A True Iron Maiden Master piece that any music lover would enjoy.

Satellite 15...the Final Frontier is a great song that has an element that Iron Maiden uses to mold 2 songs into one like Pink Floyd. Then it leads into the single El Dorado which is filled with solid drumming, great lyrics and the usual Harris Bass and 3 guitar solos that just make Iron Maiden a Hard Rock Band.

Iron Maiden is a great band that for some reason gets no respect and very little air play yet the Final Frontier is the top Selling album in Canada and in Britain it just goes to show you how strong the fan base is for Maiden and its only getting better. Mother of Mercy, the Talisman and The Man who would be King are all great songs, yes they are long but they are so ingenious that you don't notice the time. The closing song When the wild wind Blows is new Maiden that sounds old but very distinguishable.

This is not a Heavy Album, Im not sure why People think Iron Maiden is too Loud to me they are a Hard Rock Band that should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and are still able to put out better music in the 30+ years they've been around.

Up the Irons! Buy This Album its Well worth it!

This album took about a good two listens to sink it. The songs didn't feel that long, it felt fairly quick. I like how the songs are slightly different from the last release, at least they are experimenting with new ideas.
The only letdown as another reviewer mention is the Mission Edition. I can't even access the online bonus content due to a unresolved problem.
Overall a good follow up to their last album. I would like to see them do a full concept album one day.
