Reviews of The Final Frontier
The last Maiden album I bought before this was Powerslave, so I thought I'd give something newer a listen. I'm torn on it. While the instument music is fantastic (the guys provide songs that sound modern, while still sounding like Maiden), the vocals are the week spot. Some of the lyrics are just too silly, Bruce tends to just follow the guitar melodies, and he tries to squeeze too many words in (it often sounds like he's trying to catch his breath and he starts lines a second or two too late).

I wish they would keep the original artwork on all the iTunes albums.
Could have been better
Book of souls is waaaay better
