Iron Maiden - Powerslave comments: 2

This album is truly unique. It is very difficult to write a review of THAT album. This is something unusual from the beginning to the end. Really. I’ve already listened to many CDs in my life but this is completely different. This album is really intriguing, it has something elusive. It is both typical and not for this artist. Certainly it is an integral part of the discography of this artist. Maybe this is his most important work. It is quite possible.

There are many different albums. Some are good, some are bad. And some are totally bland. You know, you listen to it and nothing at all stays in your memory. Complete emptiness, a form without content. Like latin “lorem ipsum” sentence. Do you know it? It goes something like this:

"Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Phasellus cursus nisi a est mollis, at consectetur ipsum vestibulum. Sed ornare justo vel ligula pharetra pulvinar. Suspendisse tincidunt nibh id dui porta, ac cursus nunc aliquet. Proin in lectus ultricies, vehicula tellus eu, ullamcorper diam. Cras faucibus metus et sem fringilla, non mattis felis tincidunt. Nunc pharetra venenatis tellus vel feugiat. Nunc consectetur venenatis dolor, at sollicitudin lacus volutpat in. Phasellus dapibus eget ipsum sit amet tristique. Donec ac pretium mauris. Etiam vitae fringilla nulla. Sed eros purus, iaculis nec aliquet quis, egestas eget purus. Aenean vehicula tellus quis tellus euismod auctor. In hac habitasse platea dictumst. Nunc est tortor, mattis eu tempor vitae, tincidunt at lacus."

It is only the first paragraph. Second goes:

“Curabitur urna quam, consectetur eget elit sed, feugiat cursus ipsum. Nullam elementum ultrices magna, sed suscipit purus. Sed iaculis, lorem non convallis semper, est magna iaculis leo, sed hendrerit lorem tellus in velit. Mauris placerat bibendum nulla, eget vestibulum dui. Nullam luctus neque urna, rutrum ultricies ligula dapibus eu. Nullam placerat adipiscing hendrerit. Donec ac augue non lectus mollis euismod. Curabitur quis aliquet ligula, a elementum metus. Aliquam erat volutpat. Mauris facilisis interdum turpis, vel pellentesque ligula luctus vel. Maecenas vitae risus scelerisque, venenatis nisl sit amet, laoreet augue. Integer bibendum leo eget dui commodo mollis.”

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Many albums are also dummies. Do not arouse any emotion, completely nothing. But this album is totally different.

When we listened to this album here in music-nation company we were very impressed. That work is a rarity. We know it. Already the first track proves the greatness of this artist, his genius, and that it has its own unique style. Nobody plays like him. Other songs also are brilliant. Not like lorem ipsum third paragraph, which goes:

"Sed pretium, orci in feugiat pharetra, dui metus blandit ligula, malesuada ullamcorper sem augue a erat. Integer hendrerit rutrum ante non egestas. Pellentesque vestibulum felis purus, sit amet pellentesque enim laoreet non. Fusce cursus hendrerit ultricies. Mauris mattis scelerisque ipsum, fringilla tincidunt lacus luctus non. Curabitur lacinia ac risus et convallis. Sed commodo ipsum eget quam pellentesque, eget dapibus tellus ultricies. Sed a lectus at nisi faucibus volutpat. Nunc ac diam ligula. Aenean accumsan porta sapien at congue. Duis enim orci, luctus sed quam quis, commodo ullamcorper ipsum. Morbi ultricies ornare tempor. Vestibulum ante ipsum primis in faucibus orci luctus et ultrices posuere cubilia Curae; Pellentesque venenatis leo at viverra mattis. Etiam dolor mi, porta vitae libero sed, venenatis elementum sem. Mauris laoreet, tortor id vehicula mollis, sem enim molestie ante, sit amet sodales est massa sit amet turpis."

You enjoy listening to this album from beginning to end. Only then you will understand what we mean. We hope that you as we appreciate this album and listening to it although it takes you a while to another reality. Better reality.

Yes, it’s a really good album. I listened to it many times. This album is really intriguing, it has something elusive. It is both typical and not for this artist. Certainly it is an integral part of the discography of this artist. Maybe this is his most important work. It is quite possible.
