Robert nelson-thoug h i agree that their older stuff rocks(1st time I saw them was with DiAnno), songs like Can I play still get my adrenaline rushing,as was this last tour.And it brings some of the younger metalheads into the fold...which is what its all about. Carry the torch.

Good music and good concept for the song, but like so many of their later songs that ring hollow with me (such as Can I Play With Madness and a few others on Seventh Son and so many of their later ventures), it's just too stinking repetitive. Forget fear, show me no more repetition!

Proof that Maiden will never lose their edge! (as long as they stick with Dickinson on vocals anyway)
