    I like it. I’ll date myself just a little… not as if Wikipedia doesn’t out my age anyhow… I was around for the release of The Number of the Beast and have several Eddie graphic albums stashed around somewhere, LMAO.

    Check out the video for the single! Like it or not, they sure as hell didn't take the easy way out . . . that looks like proper animation with work (and money) put into it.

    It's impossible to go wrong with Maiden.

    That might be going a bit TOO far...! Some weak Maiden albums here and there over the years...maybe Virtual XI etc were below par. Though few IM fans will AGREE about which ones were best or worst! ME, I think Number of the Beast is a bit overrated . . . Steve Harris himself admits it was rushed, and Gangland and Invaders are hardly first class IM songs...? And for me, 7th Son was the classic, the one that was never bettered!

    Even the ones that are relatively weak in their catalog are worth a listen, however. Virtual XI may be the weakest (except, heck, the Clansman). I liked X Factor, though Blaze's solo work is better than his work with Maiden (especially his Infinite Entanglement trilogy). Killers is probably my favorite album for nostalgia reasons, but for me a whole bunch of their albums cluster together in excellent quality right after that :)

    Recently, John Dowland lute music. Laid back Renaissance music to write to.

    I drafted the last half of our newest release to this playlist, and thought I'd share. It's all instrumental (mostly) music geared toward writers and other creatives.

    I mostly listen to a bunch of different kinds of metal, but folk/world music as well as industrial are also on constant rotation in my playlists.

    This might be controversial, but I love almost all trendy pop music. I also love the songs from Disney's Encanto.

    Disney girl here. Not controversial at all. I'm also a huge K-pop fan.

    It's hard to pin down an exact description of the full picture of what I like to listen to, because it's just kinda whatever I end up liking and can be a bit all over the place lol. I generally say pop because a lot of it either is in that genre or at least is similarly energetic. Though a lot of it kinda veers off from there, like Mumford and Sons, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.... but then I'll listen to The Script, Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, etc. I like to imagine my own sorta mental music video things based on my characters and stories, so that definitely factors in and can make me love a song that seemingly comes out of left field for me to be into lmao. For me, both the sound and the lyrics are important.

    Lately, I've turned to the Pogues' Hell's Ditch to get my blood flowing, then switch off to my more traditional Enigma once in the groove, heh heh.

    I have been jamming to Beast in Black lately. Great if you love powermetal and 80s music.
