Three top cuts and then a pile of dross / 2
Everything about this reeks of warning signs.

The cover art is garbage. The leaked ideas that this was to be their last album was garbage. Though the band weren't suicidal enough to seriously try to tour this album. Instead plumping for a greatest hits tour (documented w/live DVD and CD of course) of their early stuff which was so awesome. And also 25 years ago.

How this pile of well produced but utterly bland bunch of noises has averaged four stars over something like 400+ reviews is beyond me. There is no doubting the splendour of the first two tracks and the third tune, No More Lies, is also pretty good. My advice would be to download these three excellent, goose bump inducing tracks and then forget the rest. How seriously one band can just keep on repeating tired formulas relentlessly. Meaningless guitar attacks that sound like every other guitar attack they've done since around 1989 (ie tired and irrelevant) though we do get a slight lessening of the Steve Harris bass sound cringe. Meaning he has been forced to realise that if your going to rave about your guitar attack then it's probably a good idea for it to be louder than the bass guitar. Or perhaps somebody he actually listens has mentioned how his bass sound has ruined darn near every album they've put out in the last 15 years.

I give up. Such a wonderful and visceral band. Apparently they still cut it live, though Australian audiences would never really know since they've not toured here since 1991.....

Seriously, time for the farewell tour guys.

Song "The Trooper"
You'll take my life but I'll take yours too
You'll fire your musket but I'll run you through
So when you're waiting for the next attack
You'd better stand there's no turning back.

The bugle sounds and the charge begins
But on this battlefield no one wins
The smell of acrid smoke and horses breath
As I plunge on into certain death.

The horse he sweats with fear we break to run
The mighty roar of the Russian guns
And as we race towards the human wall
The screams of pain as my comrades fall

We hurdle bodies that lay on the ground
And the Russians fire another round
We get so near yet so far away
We won't live to fight another day.

We get so close near enough to fight
When a Russian gets me in his sights
He pulls the trigger and I feel the blow
A burst of rounds take my horse below.

And as I lay there gazing at the sky
My body's numb and my throat is dry
And as I lay forgotten and alone
Without a tear I draw my parting groan. The Number of the Beast [ENHANCED] [ORIGINAL RECORDING ...

Dude, that's so intense (
A ferocious little dynamo rips off his shirt and streaks howling across the stage atop a bludgeoning beat. Maybe he cuts his torso too, and glowers there bleeding. Another Iggy/Manson rerun? Repetition can mute shock; today, such rock 'n' roll theatrics come off like the latest mounting of a Sophocles tragedy.
