Pretty Maids

I saw Pretty Maids back in the mid-eighties supporting Saxon but have to admit that I was not immediately impressed by them. Some years later I got several of their albums and was pleasantly surprised by their consistency, however, it was 2010 “Pandemonium” that really blew me away. They put in a terrific performance at Firefest in the same year.

This year’s “Motherland” is my most played album to date and I think it is every bit as good as the aforementioned “Pandemonium”. Some how the band have managed to make their melodic songs more heavy and their heavy songs more melodic.

I wanted to know what long term fans thought of these last two releases in comparison to their back catalogue.

Also, is the live DVD “It Comes Alive (Maid In Switzerland)” worth getting?
