Compared to the sonic mess of Dance Of Death, I'd be inclined to agree as well. Taken on its own, it's another hairy mess. I can take this kind of mix on a Motörhead album, but to have Maiden sound like this makes me wanna cry. The middle/solo bit on The Man Who Would Be King... What the hell's going on there? You can't even tell who's taking the leads, it's just a big fat hairy ball of sound - reminds me of the kind of recordings we'd do of our amateur bands 25-30 years ago. I love this band but it's annoying paying for crap sound when you want to hear their new songs.
