Best Songs from Iron Maiden's The Final FrontierIron Maiden's 15th Studio Album: The Final Frontier.
The Top Ten
The artwork of music! One of the best songs by Iron Maiden and easily the best on this
Simply amazing, and the best Iron Maiden song in my opinion. The main melody is beautiful and the track goes from strength to strength, with each new section somehow beating the last.
This isn't only the best song on the album or the best Maiden song, in my opinion, it's the greatest song of all time. It's a masterpiece. It's the last track on the album and Iron Maiden often save the best song til last on many of their albums.
In my opinion, The final frontier is one of their most melodic albums, their four latest albums have all been very melodic and this is one of the most meoldoic songs.
I love the wind blowing in the opening, I love the intro and I love all the rest. In true Maiden style they use the intro again at the end for a fantastic finale.
I also love that it's 11 minutes long, not too short so that I can truly enjoy it.
Not much else I can say other than it's brilliant and it's my favourite song of all time.
A song that proves that metal is beautifulV 17 Comments
It's about an epic journey on the seas. It's like Rime of the Ancient Mariner's baby or something.
This was one of the first songs that got to me from this release. Maybe it was the slow start, or the explosiveness once the song is in full force. The lyrics are just magnificent, as is the instrumentation. One of the best Maiden songs ever and the best from the album - denglongfist
Great Maiden-esque subject, amazing vocals and brilliant time changes. This song really combines classic Maiden with the modern. Amazing!
When the wild wind blows is one of the worst sorry but this song...the talisman is absolutely excellent!V 13 Comments
I love the prog feel of the intro - MaidenFan666
Satellite 15 is definitely something unexpected from Iron Maiden. I personally think it's great, it's frightening and the music helps convey the storyline and fear that much better. The final frontier is something you would expect from Iron Maiden, and as always, it's very good and has a great guitar solo. - Songsta41
I don't understand why people don't like this song.
Because it is a little bit more progressive than other?
4th place isn't bad but in my opinion it's too low.
Only a true Maiden fan would call a near 9 min. song short. :) just saw them in ChicagoV 1 Comment
Definitely the best song on here. Amazing guitar solos, amazing lyrics that have real meaning behind them. When you sit down and listen to the the lyrics, you realize hoe emotional it is. It's about coming home for the first time in years, and how it is for the band. Absolute classic, and I feel ashamed for the people who didn't vote for it.
hey all don't you understand this has the best guitar solo in the album. Adrian shmit do it again
Very good chill atmosphere and awesome outer-space lyrics it absolutely puts my mind at ease
This is the best song maiden has ever done I believeV 2 Comments
El Dorado is one of those songs that you listen to when you want to hear Iron Maiden at thier best. I wonder if they will make any new albums, if so, I'll buy them aslo.
Great metal song! I love how it builds up to a soaring chorus (not once, but twice! ), and the soloing section is classic Maiden. I'd put this near the top of my all-time favorite Iron Maiden list.
The verses are ok. The chorus is awful on the other hand, as it highlights the fact that Bruce wasn't singing as well as normal on this whole album, other than the talisman. Thank god that book of souls had him singing just as well as his old stuff. - kempokid
This got I'm a Grammy!V 2 Comments
Best song since the 80s. Bar none. It is perfect maiden, with none of the overblown stuff of the other admittedly solid songs.
I vote for this song because it's very underrated. Hey come on people! Listen to it, it's not a perfect song, but it has a great lyrics and a strong, powerful riff and solos. It's great. For me it's a lot better then Coming Home.
Extremely underrated. Combines the best elements of the somewhere in time/seventh son era into one awesome song.
It's very personal to say this but this song makes me feel alive. It is the very reason I started singing.V 1 Comment
WAY underrated! 1) I love how in typical Maiden fashion this song is a complete musical journey starting with brooding, picking up to cruising speed, then going into that weird prog phase with the solos that made you wonder if you accidentally hit another artist on your iPod, then back to cruise mode. 2) Just like the music, the lyrics are a complete story, not just mindless poetry.
Simply brilliant. This is all part of the natural progression for the band in my opinion.. It gives it punch without going over the top But at the same time still retaining it's roots. Love it!
Has anyone even heard this song? This is their most underrated song on this album. Please listen to this song before voting for anything else!
1. The Man Who Would Be King
2. When the Wild Wind Blows
3. El Dorado
4. The Talisman
5. Satellite 15... The Final Frontier
6. Isle of Avalon
8. The Alchemist
9. Coming Home
10. Mother of Mercy
This is a phenomenal album, Mother of Mercy is the only song I don't think is all that great but it's still a decently good song, for a while When the Wild Wind Blows was my favorite song from this album but The Man Who Would Be King came out of nowhere and is now my favorite song off this fantastic album, this song truly is art in its purest form. - Derrick_Fox
This song is underrated but still cool but why is el dorado higher than this.
5 mother of mercy
4 isle of avalon
3 coming home
1 when the wild wind blows
The chorus frustrates me to no end. It feels like Bruce is trying to sing as powerfully as he used to, but only hits the notes without any of the power in other songs. - kempokid
Very, very underappreciated! My top 5 would be : 1) The Talisman
2) MOTHER OF MERCY
3) When the Wild Wind Blows
4) The Final Frontier
5) El Dorado
My Opinion is:
8.The Man Who Would be King
7. Satellite 15... The Final Frontier
6. El Dorado
5. Isle of Avalon
3. Mother of Mercy
2. Coming Home
1. When the Wild Wind Blows
This song is cruelly underrated. It has an awesome riff and keeps you on edge the whole song, people should vote it up! I know I will! - Songsta41
Each to their own but I would have this much higher
2)Mother of Mercy
1)When the Wild Wind Blows
This song isn't really the worst or next I don't like 2 popular songs el dorado and coming home. Coming home was alright but el dorado sucked my list of best songs might be very diffrent
1 the talisman
2 when the wild wild winds blows
4 the final fronteir
5 mother of mercy
6 the man who would be king
7 isle of avalon
8 the alchemest
9 satelite 15
10 coming home
11 el dorado
Much better than people give it credit for. Many people don't like it 'because it's "repetitive", but it ain't.
Underrated. It may be long, but it's a really good song. - IronSabbathPriest
Last place! No way, this has an infectious chorus in amongst an atmospheric epic songV 3 Comments
