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.

Rating: 9 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.

Rating: 9 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.

  Superb album. I'm starting to think it surpasses Chemical Wedding, which used to be my favourite solo album.

Rating: 9 This and Chemical Wedding are better than any album released by Maiden in the 90s.
