    I'm a long time Maiden fan so I might be a bit biased on my review. It has been a while since they have released an album so I was looking forward to 'The Book Of Souls'. It didn't disappoint! Over 90 minutes of musical goodness. The sound is definitely Maiden as you can hear their signature style embedded in the music but have also expanded their range in a good way. They play in drop D tuning (for the first time ever I believe) and more piano work in the 18 min epic song, 'Empire Of The Clouds'. If you are a Maiden fan, I recommend this album. If you have never listened to them, this album would be a great beginning!

    I'm a lifelong Maiden fan and was so excited about this double cd. I went to the store right after opening to purchase the deluxe edition. I popped it in the cd player in the parking lot and listened to it all day. I'm still listening to it. They are still one of the best bands of all time and haven't lost their edge. The solos are amazing! This is just great. Iron Maiden is one of the few bands who have stayed true to their music. Bruce tells a story in every song better than any lead vocalist in the world. The music is timeless. It's so refreshing to listen to something new by people with skill and talent.

    as a long time Maiden fan, the songs have been getting more progressive and different since virtual XI. this one, took me a couple of listens to get into it. the reunion from brave new world has really given Maiden fresh ideas, that album was easy to like, then, dance of death, a matter of life and death and the final frontier have become favorites. out of this one, love the first 9 songs and I like the last 2 as well. after having seen them play about 6 songs from this album live, I enjoy them even more.

    Iron Maiden release another masterpiece.

    Iron Maiden have released another masterpiece. This album continues with the style they have followed since Bruce and Adrian rejoined the band in 2000. Some fans miss the shorter, faster, harder tracks more common on the early releases and I do also. However, I am more than happy with the music Iron Maiden are making now. They are heading in a progressive metal direction. The songs are longer. The arrangements are more complex. The albums continue to reveal new items with every listen. Empire of the Clouds is my favorite track on the album.

    Much Better Than Expected

    I wasn't expecting much after the last two outings from Maiden, but I picked it up after hearing the entire album on Ozzy's Bone Yard. It was much better. I would have only bought the standard edition had I realized that the "Deluxe" edition was just larger packaging. I expect more as I have always received more with deluxe sets that cost more. Up the Irons and rock on. I will click on the recommend option, but keep in mind it's for the music only and not the over priced large package.

    Iron Maiden rocks again

    Maiden went back and grabbed some ideas of what made Powerslave great. The Book of souls and Empire of the clouds are epic songs in the way Rime of the ancient mariner and Seventh son also were for their albums. Tears of a clown, the red and the black, shadows of the valley are all songs we will soon add to their greatest hits. All in all the CD is worth the price especially for any Maiden fan, plus the art work for this CD is reminiscent to the old days of Derek Riggs' artwork...

    the deluxe version of the cd is awesome full size pages for the artwork, lyrics and liner notes all around great cd enjoy seeing more song writing collaberations between gers/murray/dickinson/smith/harris than just relying on mr harris alone - even though steve has written most of maidens greatest hits. the red and the black is another harris masterpiece Up the Irons...still going in the year 2015 if you get a chance- check out the video for the song speed of light
