Been in Mallorca and Miami most of the time so it was a bunch of Euro house/trance and Nightflight Orchestra in Miami....

Back to reality on Tues and I've been mainly on an Iron Maiden kick 90% of the time
(NOTB-7th Son)

Interesting observation
Somewhere in Time.
Listening back I now for some reason get an almost Rush vibe in spots.
I'm guessing that is when they were using that highly processed guitar tone(GK amps,which is also what Lifeson was using at the time)and some of the chord structures going on.

To me their most progressive and experimental album.
My favorite Maiden album, synth guitars and all. Love everything up to 7S but there's this intense energy to SiT that begs for you to play it from beginning to end as you bang your head. Not a bad song in it either, my least favorite is Wasted Years and that is still a great song. To me they peaked with this album and rode the wave with 7S which just touched the peak a little higher, but didn't capture the same energy. After playing both I want nothing to do with anything that comes after.
