This is it, the album that Iron Maiden never made. Accident Of Birth is the great (quasi) solo work by Bruce Dickinson with assistance from his friend and former band member of Iron Maiden Adrian Smith. Together with Roy Z (guitarist & producer) & further notable musicians these two legends of metal recorded their by far best album of the 1990ies.

The first album I listened to by bruce Dickinson solo, and it sounds fucking great too. Diversity, with acoustic songs like the excellett Omega, and then some superb guitar work on songs like the title track and freak.

Dickinson's best solo album. It's superior to every Maiden album of the 90's, and it might be better than anything Maiden has done since Seventh Son. Except for Brave New World.

Seems decently good album with some filler material. The songs in the middle ( Darkside Of Aquarius, Road To Hell and Man Of Sorrows ) are great songs that shall be heard again

Excellent album imo. Only Welcome To The Pit and Omega are a bit disappointing imo. I really like all the other songs on this record.

His second best solo album imo. The Chemical Wedding is even better than this one (in fact that's one of my favourite heavy metal albums).

"The Magician" is the weakest song here.

"Omega" is fantastic.

Pretty average. Outside of Iron Maiden, Bruce isn't able to write any outstanding tracks. There are a few good songs but the vocals are just weak not interesting. At least in the 80's, Bruce had a strong voice even though he screams more than he sings, but the Maiden chemistry created several legendary tracks and Bruce's voice fit there perfectly.
