If you listen a little more intensively to ‘The X-Factor’, Iron Maiden’s first album with Blaze Beyley, you’ll not only be struck by the awesome songs, you’ll definitely notice the excellent vocal performances as well. ‘The X-Factor’ doesn’t just demonstrate a fundamental vocal overhaul within the band, it also delivers a few musical surprises for long-time fans as well, as the songwriting has become substantially darker. Songwriter, bassist and producer Steve Harris links this to his personal rock bottom, which he hit after Dickinson’s departure and his divorce.

"The X-Factor" is definitely the best album in the history of Maiden. And it's not about sound, or performance, or anything else. These qualities were always on top. In my opinion, the only epithet suitable for the one-word description of this album may be perhaps one - "Genius".
And here's the point. Those albums that were recognized as living classics and taken for the absolute are the result of a long work and gradual development. Examples - "The Seventh Son", "No prayer ..." and, accordingly, "Fear ...". To write songs from these albums, in which Dickinson developed his singing talent to the maximum, it took nearly six years of hard work. Concerts, countless singles, attempts to experiment. The only thing, I think, on what kept all the so-called. "Golden Era" is a truly unforgettable talent of Harris, who could write alone so deep in melody and content that the opening of their meaning simply did not have the strength or the desire to penetrate the compositions of other authors (the same Bruce, Smith, ). Fortunately, there were not so many of them.
