The Final Frontier!

I don't what you guys generally think about Iron Maiden but I know this: they're newest album entitled "The Final Frontier" and especially the music video literally BLEW MY FRIGGIN' MIND!... honestly... my walls are painted with bits of brain and blood.

Let's get the facts straight. It's the fifteenth and probably the last album Iron Maiden are going to record. I know it sounds sad but I think it's bs. Lead singer Bruce Dickinson was quoted saying that with all the touring and traveling they might not have time to record anymore. He also said they are hoping to release another album sometime in the distant future and I say THEY BETTER. Iron Maiden's last album should be something with which they go down in a blaze of glory. A legendary opus with 12 songs all of which are completely different yet perfect in their own way causing mass female orgasms and shy male erections.

The album does have good songs on it but it's not really something I had expected. I was expecting... "more & better", but I guess you can't invent the wheel more than once, right? The album features 10 songs all of which seem to have a soft start and a rough ending. When I say rough I don't mean bad. This just means it's got Steve Harris' handywork written all over the album. The fact that Harris had something to do with all of the songs may explain why it had sold 44,385 copies in the first week of release. However I think the problem with Final Frontier is that it's... a middle child. With a cover name like "Final" you expect it to be... the last goddamn thing you ever listen to by these guys and if it is I must say I'm not impressed. I'm still glad I bought the cd and I'm listening to it as I write this mindless dribble... I also wish someone would clean all that brain off my wall.

Anyway here's the music video of the song 'Final Frontier'. Enjoy!

  4. Iron Maiden is one of the few metal bands that I really enjoy. There are others that are 'okay', but these guys are class acts. This better not be their final album.
