Doing the holiday travel thing, so I have lots to catch up on. Let me just say that “Aces High” and “2 Minutes to Midnight” is the strongest opening 1-2 punch in the entire Maiden catalog. It’s difficult for any album to live up to that type of opening, which is probably why I put Powerslave at the bottom of the first five releases (but it’s still a terrific album!) The Duelists is my third-favorite tune from this album, and I never realized how certain parts of the verses are very reminiscent of Where Eagles Dare. That’s one reason I love threads like this. I agree with a lot of the posters that have said this is an overlooked tune. Coincidentally, I received a new copy of Live After Death for Christmas, and am really loving how the band sounded at this point and time. I hadn’t listened to this album all the way through for a long time, but they are really cooking here.
