There are stronger tracks on this effort. "Be Quick Or Be Dead", "From Here To Eternity", Weekend Warrior", and the soon to be live favourite "Fear Of The Dark" certainly rate mentioning. Not quite a complete comeback for Eddie's boys but an overall better effort. The starred review says 3 stars, but I would rate it 3.5 stars.
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!Read more ›
Fear would be the last album with Bruce Dickinson until 2000's "Brave New World" as he wouldn't return until 1999(Smith also rejoined with Bruce).You need to understand that there was a lot of tentions back ten in the band between Bruce and Maiden,so it was kind of Bruce versus Maiden in some ways.It's a band with a signer that they don't want there and a signer who doesn't want to be there either.It wasn't the best era of Maiden.The band would go on tour during 1992-1993,then record two live albums and Bruce would go on to make solo albums while Maiden would get a new singer,Blayze Bailey who would make two albums with them.The band wasn't fonctionning as a unit anymore it was the band in one side and Bruce in the other and let's face it,in those circumstances it is really hard to be committed at 100 % and do your best and give something great to your fans.Read more ›
Be Quick Or Be Dead- , Heavy ,Hard hitting, Maiden on top form!
From Here to Eternity- The fourth song in the charlotte series has kinda anthem qualities with the way that pretty soon you'll find yourself singing the chorus for days afterwards.
AFraid to Shoot Strangers- INCREDIBLE. HAS TO BE HEARD TO BE BELEIVED WORTH BUYING THE ALBUM FOR ALONE.
Fear is the Key- Kinda iffy song but still pretty cool.
Childhoods end- Love this song very serious meaning but is stil damn cool.
Wasting Love- I usually skip this song dont know why though its actually pretty good. NIce melodic guitars.
The Fugitive- Love the drumming here and like "here to eternity" the chorus will stick. Another great song.
Chains of Misery- This song is wicked. Extremely overlooked, unfortunately though compared to the real standouts on this album it isnt anything really. Put this on another metal album and it wouldve stole the show.
The Apparition- I really really REALLY hate this song. Its one of those long ones where nothing much happens and the tones dont vary and theres nothing new all the way through. Lyrics are really good though shouldve done this one like Rime of the ancient mariner on powerslave.
Judas Be My Guide- One of my favourites on this one. The lyrics, the timing, the guitars, the chorus, everything is amazing on this song.Read more ›
