I love Brave New world but Born_to_run has a point which i agree on - the last two albums have had lots of overly long and boring songs, trying to go for this 'prog rock' element but missing the mark completely and just coming across as a bit dull really. The last two albums have been missing the big hooks and choruses of classic Maiden (yes,the sound is still definately there and the musicianship is excellent, but the melodies are not as strong).

just my opinion

Don't look up on your movie screens
In record stores or magazines
Close your eyes and you will see
That you are all you really need
JBJ - I believe

"Sambora's face is a mask of joyous disbelief, as if previously unaware of his ability to play the instrument at all. Reaching the last fistful of notes, he does a fair impression of a man who is actually ejaculating into his jet black flares."
