No prayer for those who do not buy this
Its difficult to nominate a finest studio moment for a band like the mighty Iron Maiden who consistenly produce finest moment after finest moment. Besides anyone who has seen them live will tell you it doesnt matter what they churn out as it will be fantastic live anyway!
No Prayer for the Dying though is without doubt one of the best.
From track one to track 1 to 10 it is a rip roaring tornado of fantastic rock moment after fantastic rock moment. Tail Gunner bursts into life following it bass intro and takes off to ten thousand feet in an instant and the album is then non stop until the end with no lull in the action till the last notes of Mother Russia. Its impossible to pick the best songs off this album - they're all cracking but listen out for my favs of Hooks in you, Holy Smoke and Bring your Daughter to the Slaughter - a classic live set track with Steves bass thumping away.
If I am going to die of heart failure whilst rocking out too hard to Maiden Im sure its going to be whilst this album is on. This one should come with a health warning!
Go on, buy it, play it loud and annoy the neighbours, unless you live next to me in which case get me an ambulance on stand by!
