4.0 out of 5 stars Good for what it is, September 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: British Lion (Audio CD)
The early reviews of this album are a bit harsh IMO. First off, its true that the lead vocals are not that strong but they are not exactly garbage either. I mean, the leader singer definitely has his shortcomings and I cant imagine him producing a strong live performance but at least on the album its ok. If you expected a Bruce Dicksinson like singer here then you will be disappointed. They just dont have Bruce Dickinson like singers growing on trees. Steve should have done Blaze Bayley a proper here and let him sing lead on this project.

Personally I'm just going to assume that maybe Steve Harris just wanted to make a 70s/80s style hard rock album and get away from making a Maiden like project. Some good rock tunes on this album. A World Without Heaven sticks out as a strong, almost progressive rock type song. Us Against the World is a solid ballad. Eyes of the Young definitely has a bit of an 80s vibe to it.

My major complaint is the production of the album. It just sounds muddy and bland.

Now while this album doesn't break any new ground I find it an enjoyable hard rock album. Better production and maybe stronger vocals would have made it even more enjoyable. Personally I see this album as something that grows on you as you get past the Maiden expectation.
