iTunes Review

Everything you love about Iron Maiden—the epic songcraft, the galloping twin-guitar attack, Bruce Dickinson’s operatic tenor—is pushed to new levels. At over 90 minutes, their longest album yet, The Book of Souls shows the band is still taking risks. Songs like “If Eternity Should Fall” and “Empire of the Clouds” feel like mini-movies, one guided by the force of metal. “Speed of Light” and “The Red and the Black” are vintage Maiden bruisers. Forget cruising altitude—Iron Maiden is setting a powerful example to open their next 40 years.

Customer Reviews

A bit premature for reviews, eh?

It's always amusing when people review an album they haven't even heard yet, merely because it's their favorite artist. Iron Maiden is beyond talented in every way, with no weak links on any instrument - that I will say for sure. Someone on here said in their "review" that they hope this is much different than their last album. When you are a musician, you cannot continue to recreate the same music over and over or it will no longer be fun for you as an artist. When an artist is having fun it is contagious to their audience. And likewise when they stop having fun. Bless these guys for having the courage to take musical risks, explore their own capabilities, talents and styles, and for continuing to create some of the most brilliant music in ANY genre. I'm thrilled to hear new Iron Maiden; can't wait! I'm cautiously excited to know that Bruce Dickinson is healthy and apparently doing well after his cancer announcement. So... let's all continue to keep Bruce in prayer and let's anticipate and hope for an album that's worthy of all of these premature 5-star reviews. Up the Irons!

Bring back British Metal

If you like 80's style Maiden, you will love this. They are bringing back the sound the popularized them and they truly hit the pitching with it. From Number of the Beast, to Piece of Mind, Powerslave, Somewhere in Time, to Seventh Son, the Book of Souls delivers that!!! It's like they said, they are going to create a greatest hits album with a twists, a new material... These hits are all based off the sounds from then... It's powerful, it's melodic, it's harmonizing, finally, it classic Iron Maiden once again!!!

Up the Irons!!!!

I Love ‘em, but not this one.

Well, I love Iron Maiden - I thought their first 7 albums were awesome in every regard… true masterpieces that are still fun to listen to to this day. This album? Not so much. I really wanted to love it. But I don’t. I listened to it over and over for 3 straight days, and I just kept losing interest. It’s basically an album full of "Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner’s” - long songs that tell stories. And that’s awesome for ONE song on an album, not so great for every track on an album! There is nothing here that reaches out and grabs you and screams “listen to me again”. In fact, I dare you to even notice the difference between songs. I could play 30 to 60 seconds of any song on the album and you’d not know which song it was, or if I even changed songs. No hooks. No killer riffs. No great choruses. Just a bunch of long kinda boring songs, with moments of great music scattered throughout. Other bands from this era have released killer albums recently (Judas Priest’s new one is superb for instance). But Maiden just lost their mojo it seems to me… and that is a very hard thing to say. Their first 7 albums will remain in my playlists until the day I die. This one has already been deleted from my collection (thanks Apple Music for making that painless!)(although it may make a good album to fall to sleep to, now that I think of it).
