this is bruce, bruce trying a different direction, and pulling it off. different style but still maiden as well. my advice is to check it out. UP THE IRONS MATE.

I wasn't planning on buying any more of his solo releases after the disappointing BALLS TO PICASSO, but I found this cheap and I couldn't resist. This was an improvement. Sounds more like Maiden than his previous solo efforts, but with a modern touch.

Did not like it at all.For experiments leave it to Nu metal bands.Not this icon of heavy metal.The rest of his albums are quite worht it but definetely not this one.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 5, 2014 at 19:42
Ok,i'm listening again to this album...hard to believe that Bruce did this but being objective it was inevitable not to "fall in love" to what was going on back then in the middle of the 90's in the music business and,somehow,grunge and alternative was taken the world by storm...some good songs with that approach are kinda likable ones such as tracks 1,4,5,8,9,11 & 12...if you are way too involved in Bruce's early solo stuff of with what he have done with Iron Maiden,then,this album won't fit in your shoes...for me it goes at the end as a nice "try" in a different direction...80/100

As a dparture as this was from what came before, Skunkworks was instant regardless Bruce going places only he dared, such a shame the majority saw this only as a bandwagon jump. Which in itself was rubbish Skunkworks couldn't be further from grunge than what Maiden themselves were, Skunkworks going for a more futuristic outta the box vibe & the album wins! Solar Confinement is the albums best tune & elsewhere Space Race & Back From The Edge deliver the goods. Inertia is excellent & Inside The Machine also delivers big time. While the magnificence that was Accident Of Birth & Chemical Wedding (Tyranny too for that matter) were still to come, Skunkworks wins for it being rather unique & experimental. No commercial cash cow in sight, Skunkworks made for artistic passion nothing more. With Bruce Alex & co in top form this record is up there with the best of Bruce. Of all his works Skunkworks would be my preferred Bruce reunion, shame we didn't get a sophomore record. Wonderful! Rating 8.5

(A bit) not fully esteemed album like Queensryche's Hear in the... from 1997, actually I feel the similar vibes in both of them. Fresh hard rock with a little grunge. Here I'd say a mix of Iron Maiden with Stone Temple Pilots. I like it. 80/100.
