      Cosmiceddie, when you love Sabbath as much as I do, you feel very little need to listen to anything else, I spend all my time and money on Sabbath, most of my time, I do have to devote my time to my family of course.

        I like the guitar solo's the best...

        Dave Murray sounds like Dave Murray only more polished and very good. Adrian Smith's solo is good but not one of his best. I am surprised by Janick's final solo and how melodic and not crazy it sounds.... one of his best!

        Bruce sounds good but not very original. The new album will be an epic monster I am sure

          I was positively surprised with this one.

          Sounds much more like the 80s stuff than I ever would have thought.

          I'm so glad they're atleast trying to abandon the god awful modern sound they had on those last two albums which are, lets face it pretty much unlistenable....

          I do worry about the song lengths on the album though...they are taking those long songs waaay too far. That's been Maiden's problem for a long time now. The songs are too repetetive and streched waaaaay too far for their own good.

          My expectations are still pretty low but this new one (even if they stole the title from BLAZE, and even if the BLAZE song is much better) gave me some hope that Maiden might still have it...MIGHT....

            Nah, I never dug them. Okay for hardcore fans I guess, but absolutely nonessential metal imo.

            Unlike him, I have listened to their entire discography and I can confirm he isn't missing out.

              That's what I thought Buffalo Bill, perhaps they need to bring back Di'anno.

                That would be cool. Will never happen though. Bruce is too much of an egomaniac to step down.

                  Then they need to let him go.

                    Have you heard Paul sing lately??? Seriously the guy sounds awful, and that's being nice. I've heard crows sing better than DiAnno!!! Abysmal.

                      How is that any worse than Bruce nowadays? Bruce sounds like a guy had a decade-long coke binge. Nasal as fuck and has trouble hitting notes even in the studio.

                        Oh come on...Paul can't even sing anymore, he just talks and even then he can't make any sense...you can't even make out 5% of what he's saying there.

                        Bruce isn't what he used to be, but atleast he still can sing.

                        It's kind of ironic that the one singer most Maiden fans seem to hate has only become better and better over the years and is the one who can deliver the most consistantly brilliant preformances....

                          Paul is just a little out of shape is all. If he got back into shape I'd bet he'd out sing Bruce.

                            And that's been cleaned up for release too. I saw him back in 2009 and he was way worse. To this day it's the one & only show that I walked out afterwards thinking "I just got duped"

                              I just do not get the hate for Dickinson - I personally think he still sounds damn good considering he has been doing this since before the 80s.
                              And on those classic 5 albums from NOTB to SSOASS he is impeccable as far as I am concerned.

                                I love Maiden & all, but I'm not a huge fan of this new song. There's not one particular aspect that I think sucks about it, but the word mediocre was mentioned before, and I think thats appropriate in this instance. Although I do think the music is performed with as much enthusiasm as possible, it sounds like the guys are very into what they're playing here, but Im not, unfortunately. I'll try and stay optimistic about the album. I did like one or two songs from Final Frontier, so there's always a chance I'll connect with some of this new one. Actually 2 months back on a long drive I played Dance Of Death all the way through and was reminded how decent of an album that one is (imo). But over time it has seemed that as they've tried less at making hit singles, and tried harder to be a Heavy Metal Genesis, or Gentle Giant, there's less emphasis on hooks, and less material there that engages me.

                                As for Dianno's current vocal quality, I wonder if you just have to catch him on a good night? The only time I saw him was in 2011 in Hollywood with Icarus Witch as the backing band, and it was a killer, killer show. About a week after the show in L.A. they played in Vegas & streamed the whole performance online. I wound up recording it, and again Paul sounded great. Granted that was four years ago, I dont know when the clip posted above was recorded but perhaps he was having a bad night or he's lost a little in the intervening years. We all know Ozzy is very hit or miss so Paul could be faced with similar struggles.
