    Quoted for truth. I love Sturgill's stuff but had the same reaction, the animation is crappy there as it is here.

    Decent enough song though. I can't imagine that Maiden is going to recapture their glory days ever again, but they still put out good records pretty consistently and that's not a bad thing.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    I meant I really like the animation in SOUND & FURY and the one in the Maiden video is awful in comparison.

    I agree, their consistency is one of their best attributes. I'm surprised they're still going strong.

    I thought the animation of the Maiden video looked cheap too, but I did like all the little old school references.

    So this new album, despite being only a single disc is only 10 minutes shorter than Book of Souls. I have to admit, I was kinda hoping for something a little more trim and to the point. This one ends with 3 10 minute Harris epics, which could get tiresome. I'm still looking forward to checking it out though.

    I was on the fence but just gone down to £6.66(!) on amazon uk. Suspect it will just be for tonight as a final push to get to No. 1 in the charts tomorrow.

    Gotta get it that price, it's an omen! I still haven't heard the whole thing but the songs I have heard are, for the most part, pretty damn good. I'm hoping to find it locally this weekend. I don't like the production much though, just like the last few albums. Martin Birch (RIP) was a big part of their sound.
