80s Heavy Metal At Its Best?
12 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I do not know much about Iron Maiden, as they were popular a bit before my time. If I were maybe five years older I might have been one of their biggest fans.

I love that they had to record the same song over and over again for four hours to get it right. I love that they were more connected to fans than other bands up to that point, because the world of rock creates stars and idols and that is not necessary.

There is something odd about British folks singing about the subjugation of Native Americans. I wish this has been addressed more, but maybe it is not an important story for how the album was created...
