Somewhere in Time is an album i've been meaning to revisit. now seems to be the ideal opportunity. I bought the vinyl reissue the other year but haven't yet played it. In fact its the only studio Maiden album I dont own on cd, for some reason. Originally owned on cassette. I was never sure about the synth sound back in the 80's but saying that I love Wasted Years, Stranger and Heaven. Its the other tracks i havent heard in years and need get back in touch with. Just to give some background the first Maiden albums i owned were the first 2 with Di'Anno and Seventh Son, which is still my favourite. So going back through the 80s and buying the other Dickinson albums i quickly took this one to be the weakest of a great bunch. I need to see if that is still the case, but even now would suggest this hard to put above any of the first five studio albums. The cover is great, those 3 mentioned tracks alone are superb. I'll give the others a play tomorrow.
