Brave New World isn't as good as eighties Maiden, but it has some great moments, especially on the longer tracks. Although you're better off with SSOASS or Piece of Mind, this is still a great album to have around. A recommended comeback.

From: Dj SkunX Date: July 28, 2001 at 23:58
As TImothy said it is not the same maiden we heard back at the 80's but its an excelent album of an excelent band. I really recomend it to any metal fan, you wont be dissappointed.

From: WhiteLion Date: September 20, 2001 at 10:57
Time is the enemy if one wishes to stay the same. I don't believe that anything should. Change is great but it has to be done right! Maiden succeded in doing a great album. Not to different but still very original and hardhitting songs. Highly recommended if u like the older ones!

From: the wicker man Date: September 28, 2001 at 10:57
This is a very good Maiden album.Thank God they brought Bruce back!!!!

From: T1TAN Date: December 31, 2001 at 15:03
I't the best comeback anyone could wish from Maiden!! Old 80's style + their HUGE experience = Brave New World!! A must have for anyone who likes even one song from this dinosaur of heavy! *****

From: Alexander Date: March 1, 2002 at 13:55
the best album for years and certainly from a technical point of view maiden's best offer ever.best songs (dream of mirrors,nomad,ghost of..,fallen angel,the thin line..).they still play heavy metal and they prove they are the best band in this area of music!THE BEAST IS BACK!

From: dokken6008 Date: June 5, 2002 at 2:25
This was my first cd stepping into true heavy metal and what a great cd it is. Yes, some of the songs are kind of drawn out and yes, some songs tend to get kind of boring after a while, it is still a totally bitchin' classic Maiden disc. Song-wise it is certainly not their best and it may lack some creativity that some of their former recordings did. Music-wise, Alexander is right on. Maiden's playing has so drastically improved it is wonderful. An overall great heavy metal disc. 9.0/10.0.

From: Boog Date: June 19, 2002 at 9:51
The Wicker Man is 1 of my favourite songs ever man!!!!!!! UP the arse!!! Up the Irons*!!!!slugpuss@hotmail.com

From: jp Date: July 9, 2002 at 0:29
It has the musical sound of the Blaze Bayley era with Bruce Dickonson's vocals. It is more reminiscent of X-Factor and Virtual XI and 90s Maiden with long slow intros, darker,gothic, and melancholic sound, different sound to the guitars, longer slower songs, and more keyboards.It sill maintains the bands characteristic trademarks with epic length song stuctures, melodic speed metal guitar sound with fast melodic scales along with more aggressive, faster playing, literate style lyrics, progressiv

From: PaterSlovenske Date: August 31, 2002 at 15:37
This album is the definitive proof that Iron Maiden days are gone. Poor, unoriginal songs, being merely bad remakes from their past works, bad sounded production, bad timbre from the guitars and the bass especially (the sound is awful), this is just pop/commercial/MTV music. Bruce should have continued with his GREAT solo project with Adrian Smith, Accident Of Birth and Chemical Wedding are just far better than any Iron album, even Bruce has a weak performance on this Brave New World shit.

From: Damien Date: September 10, 2002 at 11:45
These guys helped define what metal should consist of. They inspired Iced Earth (my favorite) to get started so I gotta love them. This CD is just part of the on-going legend that is Iron Maiden! Get it love it wait for the next!

From: METALHEAD Date: January 25, 2003 at 18:00
METALLICA is better than maiden. JAMES, LARS, KIRK,and JASON are the best

From: MALLORCA´S ROCK Date: January 29, 2003 at 14:08

metallica maybe better then iron maiden, but iron maiden are still one of the greatest bands of all times.

metallica maybe better then iron maiden, but iron maiden are still one of the greatest bands of all times.

From: Hans W. Date: February 28, 2003 at 12:33
I can not understand why some people do not appreciate this really very good album from the best heavy metal band that will ever exist. There is not a better vocalist, not a better rhythm section, no better drummer and no better songwriter in the heavy metal genre. And what band releases a classic album after such a great career?

From: iaffprofireman Date: March 2, 2003 at 4:42
A very good album from an all time great group!

From: tailgunner Date: March 3, 2003 at 20:41
thanks bruce...

Can't their plane crash or something!

From: mutha trucka Date: March 29, 2003 at 1:04
hey nupeepee - i mean nupetor. maiden is rubber you are glue. what you say bounces off them and sticks to you. happy flying...

From: rising power Date: March 31, 2003 at 3:05
The come-back of Bruce Dickenson is a disapointment. Bad songs no energy if you wan't to hear real heavy metal albums listen to Stiff Upper Lip by AC/DC Or Craveman by Ted Nugent They have stayed true to the real spirit of heavy metal and don't start playing half-baked 70's progresive rock like Maiden is doing nowadays.

From: JUgulathor Date: April 13, 2003 at 18:36
super album . metakllica are better .HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH maiden rulezzzzzzz

From: Y2Clay Date: July 12, 2003 at 22:07
Great CD after a few weak ones over the years. Going to see them live July 30th - It's been almost 20 years since I saw them live(Damn I'm Old) - Can't Wait !

From: Carlomagno Date: July 30, 2003 at 18:31
And The Beast is back in a killer way!! Great songs, great musicians what else? Bruce is Back look out for the new record due to come out in september 'Dance Of Death'

From: visitor Date: August 26, 2003 at 12:01
Hey Rising Power, I can see from your name that you're a fan of AC/DC but please, you can´t be seriously saying that AC/DC is heavy metal? No, no, no!! Especially Stiff Upper Lip is more blues-oriented than any other AC/DC album. Flick of the Switch may be AC/DC's heaviest album, but that´s still far from heavy metal! Anyway, this is not the place to talk about AC/DC. Iron Maiden is true heavy metal at it´s very best!!

From: jon Date: August 30, 2003 at 22:53
Metallica is NOT better than Iron Maiden! Metallica fucked up and sold out, plus Iron Maiden would kick metallica's gay ass any day!

From: Motley Date: September 15, 2003 at 10:54
Metallica is a bunch of loser poser...A hitlast band if you ask me...They died after the black album...Maiden Maiden Maiden forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Fallen Angel Date: September 18, 2003 at 2:49
First of all, just because I liked this album, it isn't where I got my name. I have been using this moniker for far longer than it's been out. Now for the album. This is, in my opinion, NO DIFFERENT from the older albums, which by all means is a good thing. This is just as good as Number of the beast, Piece of mind, Powerslave, and SSOASS, but still manages to sound fresh and creative. Rock on. Up the Irons!

From: JC Labine Date: September 22, 2003 at 9:31
C'est koi ça...comparer Iron Maiden à Metallica quand on sait que c'est un musique totalement differente. L'un comme l'autre est vraiment génial dans leurs style.

From: fallen angel Date: December 12, 2003 at 23:25
tremendo regreso.la voz de dickinson esta en su mejor mmomento ,y la banda toca insuperable.fantastico.

From: Empress Date: January 29, 2004 at 11:48
Iron Maiden is amazing, and always will be. Blue Charvel, you are a goober. Metallica is an amazing band, but the two aren't even in the same league. They shouldn't even be compared.

From: Blue Charvel Date: January 29, 2004 at 13:57
Hey now! I represent that remark! I wholeheartedly agree however that Maiden/Metallica comparisons are a waste of time. They're both talented bands, but it really all depends on what you like. My favorite Maiden is Piece of Mind, or possibly Number of the Beast... not that anyone gives a rat's ass.

From: dude Date: April 26, 2004 at 6:15
alright maybe brave new world is not a number of the beast or piece of mind but when you have songs like wickerman and ghost of the navigator and fallen angel you don't give a shit.

From: MaidenWV Date: May 4, 2004 at 11:50
I feel Nicko is the weakest member in the band. I may see him differently after this album. Difently, He's best work. Keep up the double kickin' Nicko.

From: SouthRock Date: June 4, 2004 at 14:38
I only say on thing about this...Maiden is the best band in the world!!!

From: Pirate_Bobo Date: June 12, 2004 at 7:08
I must say that I do like this album more than any other Maiden one to date. Mind you, it was the first Maiden album I had ever listened to, and I have definately gone out of my way to get others. I will continue to do so.

From: Shannon Date: June 19, 2004 at 18:57
Why is everybody comparing Maiden to Metallica??? It's like comparing apples to oranges!! Anyway, this is a GREAT album from Iron Maiden and I'm so glad they let bruce back in the band - Blaze Bayley sucked!!! UP THE IRONS, PRICKS!!!

From: belters Date: June 25, 2004 at 7:09
this album is the best for years welcome back BRUCE you are still the MASTER OF METAL BELTERS THE BLOOD BROTHER FROM A BRAVE NEW WORLD

From: Big Papa K Date: July 1, 2004 at 17:55
Thank god Bruce and Adrian are back. The band seems to have more energy before and turn out their best album since 'Powerslave'. Unfortunately, they still suffer from the same problem as the last album, which is the chorus just being repeated over and over. 7/10

From: Richierocker Date: July 4, 2004 at 17:57
A dent release from Maiden. But not my favorite. Kirk's sols kick ass!! he doesnt show off as much as he did in the old days but man listen to the old Metallica, simply blows me away with that playing!!

From: dickie_bow Date: July 5, 2004 at 19:28
alot of you little punks are forgetting that maiden were around b4 the mettalica boys, which i do like, but u cant diss a band like maiden, they are the real deal and they will stay like that for some time!!! GO WICKERMAN

From: Psychotron502 Date: August 4, 2004 at 19:57
what the fuck? are you people serious? this album kicks a shitload of ass. it shows bruce's ability as a singer and i would recommend this to anyone who hasnt heard maiden before. its definately one of my favorite. (i also have a soft spot for orchestration in metal so that scored a few points with me) and the guitar work is yet again amazing.

From: Steve Date: September 11, 2004 at 8:23
Im with u Psychotron502!! This album is awesome!! I particulary like the more epic songs caompared to their earlier stuff (which is still better). All up this is great stuff!!

From: Date: September 20, 2004 at 14:36
This album kix total ass, TGFB (Thank God For Bruce), I love this album, MetalHead ur a dumbass. In Europe this band is superior to Metallica, but what u like is what u like i guess UP THE IRONS!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Black Angel Date: September 22, 2004 at 11:35
Tabarnaaaaaaaaaaaaaack, Chriiiiiiist que c bonnnnnn, Maiden Kick Asses!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Blayde Date: December 20, 2004 at 19:57
Excellent comeback album, though not one of their best. The choruses are a bit too long. I'd give it a 8/10. I wish you Maiden bashers would shut the hell up. Go listen to your crappy Slipknot and shut the HELL UP.

From: EDDIE Date: February 4, 2005 at 8:14
Good that Bruce and Adrian came back to save IRON MAIDEN fate! The cd is just that good!

From: pie75 Date: September 5, 2010 at 5:42
from the first chords of the wicker man to bruce chanting your time will come you knew that maiden were back bruce is the man and the 3 guitar attack works beautifuly why are people on here going on about maiden against metallica? metallica were once a great band but hardly better then maiden simple as that end of story welcome back bruce

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 10, 2016 at 22:22
Longhairs rejoiced when news of Bruce Dickinson's return to Iron Maiden got out. Metal was gonna come back and kick everyone's ass, maaaaaan! And it's true, Brave New World is better than anything the band had done in the last decade, although Bruce's own most recent solo albums (Accident of Birth and The Chemical Wedding) were better. This picks up musically where the Blaze albums left off, only with Bruce's more distinctive voice. All but three songs are over six minutes long, many of them needlessly so, padded by repetitive choruses and long instrumental passages that go nowhere. Even "The Mercenary" one of the three short songs, seems longer than it is by a simplistic, seemingly endlessly repeating chorus. If they had trimmed twenty minutes or so off this, it could've been a highlight of their catalog. As it is, it just signaled that maybe Blaze wasn't the real problem after all.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: January 10, 2016 at 22:26
Best songs for me: "The Wicker Man" (although I like the UK version with more backing vocals spicing up the chorus), "Ghost Of The Navigator," "The Fallen Angel," "Out Of The Silent Planet" and even "The Nomad" despite being over nine minutes long.
