That description sounds like the deepest pits of musical hell to me, but it's also made me insanely curious.LOL I really want to check this out now. My preconceptions have been proved very wrong in the past. Let's see what happens this time.Wink

Dull and uninspired? No. Grab you by the balls and make you pay attention? No. Probably not top 5 of the year for me, but it will make my top 30.

I don't think it's near as good as Book of Souls, but I like it. Problem is, I don't love it. It might be a slow burn - A Matter of Life and Death was, and I think that's excellent now. 

I find it quite subtly brilliant personally. Takes a few listens to to get a feel for it as well. I also find that the songs flow together really well. I don't think I'll end up regarding it as high as The Book of Souls though.

The only song I really like is "The Writing on the Wall". The rest to me is a blur of slow- to mid paced slow building tracks (even the fastest parts on the album lack punch and power), which I have a hard time remembering anything from and I don´t like the sound production either. Shirley is the wrong choice of producer for Maiden if you ask me. Mind you this is still Maiden of couse, which means I still think the album is solid (which speaks volumes of the greatness of Maiden that an uninspired and dull offering is still a solid effort), but I don´t hear the excellence that some people hear. My review is written and ready to be posted, but I´ll give the album a few more spinds before posting, to see if my opinion changes. It seldom does though. My first impression is usually the one I still have years down the line with most releases...

I quite enjoy it, but it's definitely not my favorite post-2000 Maiden album. I do miss some faster songs - just one or two would have been nice. Still, there are a lot of things I enjoy on this album, such as the riff that kucks in after the intro of 'Days of Future Past' and the kind of sailor jig style guitar melody thst appears @3:58 in 'The Time Machine'. The title track is very cool with the taiko-inspired drums and all that. But yeah, pretty much all the tracks are midpaced so there's not that much variation in that respect.

OK, this is 19 minutes long... Seemed longer. Glad I checked it out, but I won't be listening again.

Fuck, it's gonna be hard for me to pick between this and Desolate as my favorite metal of the year. This is more fantastic crushing nu-metalcore, but these guys go all out with the electronics. Glitchy breakbeats and drum and bass are all around, Russia really knows how awesome electronic metal is.

^Listening to that now and it already sounds the superior of the 2 releases. The electronic elements make it more interesting imo.
