Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Iron Maiden are nothing if not consistent. Since 1980's self-titled debut, they've been one of metal's preeminent torchbearers, spewing forth dramatic old-school, Euro-flavored arena-style metal, that to a non-fan might seem akin to Spinal Tap. The band's legion of followers, however, will rejoice at the 67 minutes of archetypal Maiden found on Brave New World. The album reunites their classic-period singer Bruce Dickinson with his longtime band following his self-imposed six-year absence. Also back on board is guitarist Adrian Smith, giving Maiden a scorching three-guitar lineup. Maiden's lyrical scope is as historic and elaborate as ever, their muscular musicality verging on the melodramatic. But that's what Maiden have always been about, and their sound is instantly recognizable on such meaty cuts as "The Mercenary," "The Fallen Angel," and "Ghost of the Navigator." Brave New World's signature time changes, guitar harmonies, and urgent vocals render moot any question as to whether it will spawn Maiden classics to rival the likes of "Run to the Hills" and "Number of the Beast." Bruce is back, and all's right on this Brave New World. --Katherine Turman

5.0 out of 5 stars A milestone in the war against musical incompetence June 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Sing this to the tune of the chorus in Ghost of the Navigator:
Take my heart and set it free, Cast Kid Rock into the sea. Manson is a skank, Korn should walk the plank, Let the sharks feast on Britney.
Keelhaul Limp Bizkit today, Flog 'N Sync without delay. The Spice Girls are wh0res, Chain them to the oars, And send the ship far, far away.
THE CASE FOR MUSICAL JUSTICE IN THIS WORLD: The general reaction to this album is overwhelmingly positive, with a decidedly small presence of people who think that a band is as good as dead after three albums and that the new stuff can never touch the old (any band that has been around for more than two years has idiot fans like that).
THE CASE AGAINST MUSICAL JUSTICE IN THIS WORLD: In the USA, this CD was released on the same day as Kid Rock's "History of Rock". Anyone care to guess which CD was bought by merchants and consumers in obscene quantities with its own in-store display while the other was nonchalantly crammed into the bin with all of the artist's previous releases?
I think the Case Against carries more weight than the Case For. Alas, the war against musical incompetence is being fought by far too few.
Brave New World is an incredibly solid release. Iron Maiden could probably have made a killing in sales to the sheeplike by adopting that astoundingly obnoxious rap-with-guitars sound that people can't seem to get enough of these days. Instead, they turned out ten true-to-form tracks reminiscent of the material on Somewhere In Time and Seventh Son of a Seventh Son (all hail 9-minute songs).

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 1/2 Stars - A Solid, Progressive Metal Album May 30, 2000
Format:Audio CD
For most MAIDEN fans this album has been an eight-year wait. Vocalist Bruce Dickinson returns to the band, as does guitarist Adrian Smith, and both make their presences felt on BRAVE NEW WORLD. As much as most fans expected (or hoped) BNW to be a return to the POWERSLAVE and PIECE OF MIND style, it only gets part of the way there. BNW takes from the style of VIRTUAL XI (and, to a lesser degree, THE X FACTOR) just as much as POWERSLAVE and PIECE OF MIND, giving it a more progressive feel than early to mid 80's era MAIDEN had. Heavier than either of the last two studio albums, BRAVE NEW WORLD will satisfy most MAIDEN fans, but might leave those who did not like SEVENTH SON a little cold. The album gives occasional nods to late 90's style hard music, but make no mistake, this is an IRON MAIDEN album, and an uncompromising one at that. BNW is filled with A LOT of tempo changes, mood changes, dynamic changes, stylistic changes, etc, and features 4 songs over seven minutes in length (and three more over six minutes long). Some riffs are even reminiscent of their KILLERS era material. But is it good? Oh, HELL YEAH! ...(And it grows on you. A lot.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Maiden in the 21st Century! June 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
THE BAND: Steve Harris (bass/keyboards), Bruce Dickinson (vocals), Dave Murray (guitar), Adrian Smith (guitar), Nicko McBrain (drums), Janick Gers (guitar).

THE DISC: (2000) 10 tracks clocking in at 67 minutes. The disc contains a 14-page booklet with band pictures, lyrics and thank you's. Recorded at Guillaume Tell Studios in Paris, France. Bassist Steve Harris once again is the creative force behind the album - co-producing and writing or co-writing each of the 10 songs. Each of the other band members (except McBrain) contribute in the writing of at least one song as well.

COMMENTS: Most of what Iron Maiden put out in the 1990's was horrid, so I came apon this album with hesitation. Exit Blaze Bailey, re-enter Bruce Dickinson. Seeing the original line-up from the 1980's back in tact (plus Gers), I decided to absolutely chance it... having only been kept alive on Dickinson's solo work throughout the 90's. "Brave New World" (BNW) is a pleasant surprise. Gone are the bass and guitar synth's that were present on "Somewhere In Time" and "7th Son"... BNW features voice, drums, driving guitars, and an occasional stroke on the keyboard. This is easily their best studio album in 12 years (7th Son...), maybe more. Bruce Dickinson is back and sounds great. Although I do miss his high piercing vocals (like on the classic "Where Eagles Dare")- and I really didn't hear it until the last song ("Thin Line Between Love & Hate"). I have a slight problem with the title of the last song - an Iron Maiden tune with the word "Love" in it? It just doesn't sound right. The band sounds very tight on "Brave New World". They have obviously taken their time to do things write on this album. Nicko sounds like he has a new drum kit. The snare drum sounds a bit higher pitched than normal.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Brave New Maiden January 25, 2003
By A.F.
Format:Audio CD
Throughout the '90s, many music snobs had claimed that classic heavy metal was officially dead - and Iron Maiden were one of the bands that was always mentioned in those remarks. Who could blame them? The band was putting out mediocre material in the wake of Bruce Dickinson's departure, and most of the so-called "metal" that was being released around that time was watered-down, poser, commercial nonsense. However, in 1999, Dickinson decided to rejoin Maiden after a six-year absence, and guitarist Adrian Smith (who played on two of Bruce's solo albums)came along for the ride as well. With the revamped line-up, which now included three guitar players (Smith, along with Dave Murray and the ever underrated Janick Gers), the new 21st century Maiden went on a short reunion tour and headed to the studio afterwards.
The result is the aptly titled BRAVE NEW WORLD, an album that brought good ol' classic, melodic, epic, no-holds-barred heavy metal back to the masses. While the band's trademark galloping sound is as fearsome as ever, this is also the band's most experimental release to date, and the most complex since SEVENTH SON OF A SEVENTH SON. You would think that with three guitarists in the band it would be a disaster, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. You get the best of all worlds on here. From the heavy punch of Murray, to the melodic instinct of Smith, and to the technical flash of Gers, all three players get the job done. Steve Harris' rapid-fire bass playing is just as sharp as ever, and Nicko pounds the skins like a madman while also showing that his playing has matured since he first joined the band back in 1983. The real standout, however, is Bruce himself. He sounds better than ever on this release.
