You'd be hard-pressed to find a bigger fan of Iron Maiden's new album Senjutsu than Nicko McBrain. "Without a doubt a masterpiece," the 69-year-old drummer enthuses to UCR about his band's 17th album, the title of which translates loosely to "tactics and strategy." "I always say, 'It's the best thing we've ever made,' about our new records, because those new albums that you make are the best thing that you've ever made, you know? If it's not, then you're not gonna release it, are you? But this to me is definitely, I think, the best album we've ever made. And I know that's a stretch when you consider things like Seventh Son [of a Seventh Son] and my first album [Piece of Mind], Number of the Beast. But anyway, that's my personal opinion. I think Senjutsu is a masterpiece and our best work yet."
