Infinite Dreams? Moar liek Wet dreams! Poinkish
Gotta say, when it comes to Metal bass, Maiden have some of the most balanced yet challenging basslines in the game, and "Infinite Dreams" is a great example of that type of bassline that so many of us have grown accustomed to from the previous Maiden packs songs. The first 3 minutes of this song are a real treat with a lot of slow steady strumming with long strings of really fun hammer-ons that take you on a journey up and down the fretboard thrown in between. My favourite part of this laid-back section comes right towards the end of it, with a huge hammer-on section that goes on for a good 15-20 seconds that plays alongside the Guitar riff, it's a blast to play and sounds great in unison with the Guitar!

Then the calm before the storm hits, a series of small note bursts that match up with the drumbeat before the meat of the song kicks in, and this is where it gets it's fifth tier rating from.

The next three minutes consists or relentless alt-strumming that has you switching up constantly up and down the lanes. The amount of variety going on here is fantastic with a lot of time signature changes, with short hammer-on bursts popping up every now and then. Keeping a combo here will be a test of your reactions, no doubt, but if you're up to the challenge you'll find this part incredibly satisfying to hit. I know I did.

Overall this is a great little bass package, and definitely one I'd recommend. Great song.

Most well rounded Guitar chart in the pack! Poinkish
I gotta say, I saw that this was the lowest tier and I though "Pffft, this should be easy", but you know what? For it's tier it's actually quite a challenge, and a fun one at that!

The first 3 minutes is a lovely mix of steady strumming, alternating between single notes, chords and even some nifty chord hammer-ons thrown into the mix to make things even more interesting. There's also a nice helping of hammer-on snaking throughout, and it all feels great to hit. The long series of hammer-on snaking that you get to play towards the end of the first three minutes in particular is a highlight here.

After the laid-pack Guitar charting comes the second half and the finale of "Infinite Dreams". A constant barrage of alt-strummed single notes, chords and hammer-on strings that have your fingers constantly moving up and down the fretboard, it's pretty relentless, but it strikes that fine balance between fun, yet challenging that so few metal songs manage to hit. It's great fun, and one of the strongest Maiden picks you can get on Guitar. Worth a look, totally.
