YMMV: Bruce Dickinson
- Awesome Music:
- Black Sabbath playing "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath"? Great. The same song performed by Bruce Dickinson? Unbelievably awesome.
- "Road To Hell" and "The Magician", from Accident of Birth. Both pretty Maiden-ish songs for what Bruce's career is about, especially the former. When you have Adrian Smith in the band, nothing can go wrong.
- His cover of "Black Widow" originally by Alice Cooper with narration by Vincent Price, both fairly Large Hams in their own right. Bruce brings enough pork for both parts.
- Pretty much all of Skunkworks, but "Meltodwn" in particular.
- Broken Base: His fans are EXTREMELY divided with regards to Skunkworks. Either it's Bruce being more experimental incorporating some bluesier and jazzier sounds into some more standard hard rock than metal, or it's yet another typical '90s hard rock album with Bruce singing over it, attempting to cash in on the 90s grunge trend. The fact that it was released in 1996 doesn't help matters either.
- Tyranny of Souls is either one of his best albums or one of his worst. Either it's a continuation of an epic sound on his previous album, or it's a rushed, sloppy rehash of Chemical Wedding with none of the focus or joy.
- Ear Worm: "Welcome home, it's been too long, we've missed you..."
- Magnum Opus: Depending on who you ask, either Accident of Birth or The Chemical Wedding.
