This album kicks ass. None of that wimpy, poser metal bullshit here. It picks up where Maiden left off, and never lets up. Quality songs and performance. Nuff said!

From: Eric P Date: August 18, 2002 at 13:53
I wonder if this is the album that made Maiden think to themselves,man we need Adrian and Bruce back in the band???Maybe not. I dont know.But the first time I heard this album I nearly shit myself and felt that I should put my Gibson flying v to rest in its case.I still jam this album fuckin hard and it continues to inspire me to play guitar.I just wish I could have seen this tour.Question to enybody who has chemical wedding.Is it as good as this album????

This album ROCKS!!! BRUCE, THE AIR-RAID SIREN OF HEAVY METAL,STRIKES AGAIN! Listen, if you dig Bruce Dickinson's work, get all of his solo career albums.

From: Rod-Man Date: April 12, 2003 at 19:26
EASILY....and I mean EASILY, ONE OF THE BEST METAL ALBUMS I OWN! Maiden hasn't made a album this good since PIECE OF MIND!

From: ace Date: June 4, 2003 at 1:05
the man is back. the airraid siren belts out the best cd of '97. i wonder where the band he's in now (maiden) isnt on this cool site. iron maiden are the only band that is needed to give this site an A+.by the way UP THE IRONS MATE.

From: Desslar Date: June 4, 2003 at 10:17
Fantastic album - his best solo effort. Sounds like classic Maiden. Arc of Space is a great tune.

From: Lambros-Greece Date: October 20, 2003 at 15:41
Many said that Bruce's decision to leave Maiden would be catastrophic for both sides.Now,after all these years,what do we have;Three amazing albums from Bruce(Tat.Millionaire,Accident of birth,Chemical Wedding)and the Beast alive and powerfull with a new album that kicks ass!ACCIDENT OF BIRTH IS easily one of the best albums of the 90's.every single track is great!!I believe that in many years this will be considered as good as HOLY DIVER(or i can say better.The Beast is back.Dance of DEATH!!

From: Fat Freddy Date: December 29, 2003 at 18:37
In the mid-90s, metal was all but dead in the US. Then along came Bruce and ACCIDENT OF BIRTH, the album that pretty much restored my faith in true heavy metal! It's still in my top 10 of all time and gets played at least once a week around my house to this day. Thanks Bruce!

From: george_the_jack Date: June 19, 2008 at 10:40
Bruce's best solo album by far...Surely one of the best 5 of the 90's.

From: pie75 Date: July 13, 2010 at 10:31
lambros greece as good as holy diver lets not get carried away! but none the less adrian and bruce together to me this was the album where bruce screamed i wanna be back in maiden this excited me when i first heard it freak,starchildren, man of sorrows and the title track are great songs his second best solo album after tm
