I love it. It was their darkest album (until The X-Factor) and their first actual foray into progressive metal. Bruce was in top form, Adrian really came into his own and it just rocked. I don't know if I like it more than 7th Son or not, but I love it.


Interesting. I never really thought of it as a 'dark' record.
True enough Adrain Smith saved it from being a complete turkey, and despite Bruce's claim to the contrary, if you listen to it, they were actually trying to do something a bit different... just not what he envisioned. It's just never one I go back to much.
(Favorite three are at the moment are Powerslave, 7th Son, and Brave New World, closely followed by Killers and Dance of Death)


I hate how they changed after 7th Son. They were on to something big and threw it away. I love all their stuff up to Brave New World. I cannot stand the generic, modern metal non-Maiden shell they've become. They've sucked horribly since Bruce's return.

Iron Maiden - Somewhere in Time


Any thoughts...?

I have a perenial "discussion" with a mate of mine about this album. To me it's a real sticking point in their early discography. It's also the only album of theirs that I haven't changed my opinion on since it was released.


Somewhere In Time is Maiden's most pop-oriented album from their early years. Dark? I think their darkest from that era would easily be Piece Of Mind, and even that one is miles from being really dark. In fact, I don't really think I have ever listened to a genuinely dark metal album, like ever. As to their newer era (post- Seventh Son) I never bothered myself...And were they suffering from a temporary dementia incorporating this beyond-awful "vocalist" Blaze Baley dude? What the fucking fuck was wrong with them?!

The closest they ever got to pop was Powerslave, in both sound and appearance. Somewhere in Time wasn't pop at all. Prior to that I'd say Piece of Mind was the darkest. I love the Blaze era albums. The X Factor is their darkest work and just an incredible album. Virtual XI isn't as good but is way better than all the shit they've put out since Bruce's return. Blaze wasn't a good fit for Maiden. I'll be the first to say that, but he wasn't a bad singer. His first two solo albums are killer. I think they should've hired Michael Kiske who'd been fired from Helloween around that time. Maiden was his favorite. Though he would've been fired from Maiden after an album since he just likes making repetitive pop/rock albums. Other than Kiske, I can't think of anyone else who could've sung for Maiden.

They should have re-hired Paul Di'anno. He was the shit on Killers. I love that album to its very core, it has been a major influence in my metal formative years as a teen, a long, long, long time ago, together with ACDC's Jailbreak, Highway to Hell, Deep Purple's The House of Blue light and Stormbringer, Piece Of Mind of course and the early Scorpions records...

I could never get into AC/DC. I dig the hell out of Deep Purple. I'm currently working on getting all their albums, and early Scorpions from Lonesome Crow to Lovedrive are killer. Uli Roth FOREVER!!! hahahaha.

Maiden was my all time favorite metal band until their last album came out. It's the first one I didn't buy. I'm eventually going to sell all the modern era stuff at some point. Except Brave New World. I don't care for the album overall but I have a sentimental attachment to it.

I've never understood some of the acclaim given to the Blaze stuff. Badly produced and fairly by the numbers, for the most part. There are some stand out songs though. He sounds like a donkey trying to keep up with race horses most of the time. The live shows showed him up for what he is. A second rate vocalist. I agree his solo stuff is pretty good though. Not sure about Kiske, but they must of considered him, given their ties down the years. Di'anno would never have coped or fitted into the proggy stuff they were doing from the mid nineties onwards. Imagine him trying to do Dance of Death... That said, I can't think of anyone else capable of doing the job. Bruce's shoes are too big to fill.

Did you ever hear the 'theory' that Nicko didn't play on Virtual XI...?

Well, it was quite a while ago now but there were various rumours and ideas doing the rounds that he didn't play on the album. Some of it was to do with the idea that the playing doesn't sound like him. I.e. Someone else was playing his drums. This idea focused on the notion that fills weren't as busy as usual and the playing in general was far more straight, something which Nicko is not known for. The most realistic suggestion I remember hearing for a replacement was that his drum tech sat in for him. Reasons given for his abscence ranged from injury to an internal falling out within the band centered around the idea that he'd lost interest in the group with Bayley as a frontman and thought the material sucked. To my knowledge, none of it is true... :D

Trying to listen through the whole 3-cd Electric Café compilation. A myriad of bands from the Slavic world I don't know. A bunch are really interesting.
