It's the excessive repetition that bothers me about recent Maiden albums, even Brave New World to a degree. It feels like most of their eight-minute songs could be easily cut down to four minutes without losing anything. I agree that the producer and his "extra set of ears" should be the one giving advice along those lines.

I would rather listen to a 40-minute Maiden album that kills rather than an 80-minute album with too much padding.
I think that both Number of the Beast and (particularly) Piece of Mind sound fantastic. In fact, Piece of Mind is still a reference point for me as to how a metal album should sound. Seems like their studio sound got a little thinner after that.
