Best Maiden song ever? | Reviewer: Di'anno fan | 1/7/11

this is one of Iron Maiden's most classic, best and most awesome songs. it kind of illustrates how much better they were with original singer Paul Di'anno than with bombastic blowhard Bruce Dickinson. Yes, it shreds and is a mix of melodic hooks and speed-riffs, but the vocal delivery is nuanced, even subtle, and tells an interesting, ambiguous story. Is the protagonist the killer, or falsely accused? IDK whether this is better than their other classically-inspired classic, Phantom of the Opera, but both are all-time metal anthems.

Classic of classics | Reviewer: Ted | 1/11/10

Iron Maiden's conception of EA Poe's Murders in the Rue Morgue. Wiki it to understand the song. It's based on the first fiction "detective" story in modern literature. One of the greatest rock songs of all time.
