My beef with that band is to a large extent about their production. It just sounds so sterile and flat these days. I also feel that Blitz isn't using nearly the expressive range that he's capable of compared to on older albums. He's become a more one dimensional vocalist.

Dude. It's thrash. Flat production is almost a requirement.

I do agree that he isn't as dynamic on the newer records but I still think the vocals are quality.

He used to be the Human Air Raid Siren. Now he's Whiskey and Cigarettes at the Local Biker Bar. Still awesome.

I don't think I've ever heard anyone call Dickinson the Human Air Raid Siren.

ok it's one word off but still

Dickinson's singing varied notably in the 1990s in the recording of albums such as No Prayer for the Dying, Fear of the Dark and his first solo work Tattooed Millionaire, making use of a much more raspy and unpolished sound,[162] befitting their stripped down style.[163] Since returning to Iron Maiden in 1999, his singing style has returned to much like it was in the 1980s,[164] though his voice has lowered with age.[165] According to a report published in the Daily Mirror, Dickinson has an estimated vocal range of 4.25 octaves.[166] His voice led to the nickname "The Air Raid Siren", which Billboard states is "due to the ferocious power of his singing",[167] although Dickinson claims it actually originated from a fan complaint

Now we're talking! After what I may have mentioned once or twice already I consider two lacklustre albums, Maiden came powering back to kick the new millennium in the teeth, armed with Bruce back behind the mike, Adrian slinging on his guitar again and the band with a whole new sense of purpose. Brave New World was the album that, briefly, showed me that Maiden were not a spent force, though sadly this did not continue and so far as I can see the albums from here tailed off badly till we're where we are today. This one lights the fuse on the bomb that brought Maiden back from the dead, almost, and it's a killer, mixed metaphors notwithstanding.

From the first riffs you can hear a new energy and excitement that has been lacking, especially on The X Factor, and it's great to hear Bruce back in charge. I have nothing against Blaze Bayley, but I was delighted to see the main man back. And he sounds happy to be back too, as he snarls “Your time will come!” And it has. I don't think there's a bad track on this album, and “The Wicker Man” is the perfect way to start it off. Fast, powerful riffs, simple, to the point lyric and of course those solos, but above all, this sounds like a band revitalised, re-energised and, as I said before, crawling out of the grave the last two albums had pushed them into. It could only get better from here on in, I thought joyfully, and as far as this album is concerned, I was right. But on a more general level, I was unfortunately rather overstating the case. But forget that for now and just glory in the Second Coming of Maiden, and try, if you can, not to headbang to this! Hell, I don't even mind the “Whoa-oh-oh-oh”s!
