Even though at first listen it seemed rather mediocre to me, Iron Maiden’s new album The Book of Souls started to grow on me right away. They changed and got even proggier yet managed not to disappoint this time either – personally, I even enjoy the new one better than The Final Frontier.

Let’s listen to this epic closing-track, the 18-minute-long Empire of the Clouds for example, Iron Maiden’s longest song to date. It’s so well-written that instead of getting bored the listener gets completely lost in the various gradually building melodies, slow and soft yet dynamic sections while not even noticing its length and getting the feeling of something satisfyingly complex and ‘whole’ at the end.
