We’re back to endure Side B of Somewhere in Time and Stu and Ed wind up experiencing serious “Deja Vu,” as they dislike this side of the album as much, if not more, than the first! We start with a long song about cross-country running and end with an even longer song that can be used as Cliffs Notes to learn everything Alexander the Great ever did (though we like that song).
Where will this one fall in our on-going list ranking Iron Maiden’s albums? I think you can guess….
5. The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner
6. Stranger in a Strange Land
7. Deja Vu
8. Alexander the Great
Bruce Dickinson – vox
Dave Murray – guitars
Adrian Smith – guitars
Steve Harris – bass guitar
Nicko McBrain – drums
