Half Notes: Bruce Dickinson – Tyranny of Souls (2005)

It’s hard to believe that, in 2005, the voice of Iron Maiden was still able to pull it off. More than 20 years after joining Maiden in the wake of Paul Di’Anno’s dismissal, Dickinson was still the “air-raid siren” he had been back then — his voice hardly showing any age except for in the very highest registers. Unfortunately, Maiden guitarist Adrian Smith isn’t along for the ride this time. But, after two albums with the 6-piece Maiden collective, Dickinson turned out another solid solo album under the direction of producer Roy Z, who was behind his incredible Chemical Wedding and slightly less incredible Accident of Birth albums.
