Remastered 2017 180-gram double LP

Cut from the original master tapes

Skunkworks (1996) appears on 180-gram vinyl, cut from the original masters, in artworked jackets. An individual release from Soloworks: The Vinyl Collection, featuring Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson's six solo albums in a box set.

Other individual releases include Tattooed Millionaire (1990), Balls To Picasso (1994), Accident Of Birth (1997). The Chemical Wedding (1998) and Tyranny of Souls (2005).

"Displaying a sometimes Rush-like refined prog groove and plenty of his traditional science-and-literature lyrical themes, Bruce Dickinson deserves high marks for Skunkworks, the ex-Iron Maiden vocalist's fourth solo effort. This 1996 release signals Dickinson's tentative shift toward music generally in tune with (but still somewhat restrained when compared to) his seminal work with Maiden. The occasionally over-serious, high-concept imagery is about what fans would expect, but the open, less metallic accompaniment (that still rocks by any standard) has a non-chronological familiarity. Joining the singer on Skunkworks are musicians Alex Dickson (guitars), Alex Elena (drums), and Chris Dale (bass). Highlight tracks include 'Solar Confinement,' which while lyrically murky, has a great chorus, and the Soundgarden-esque 'I Will Not Accept the Truth.'" — AllMusic

These albums are an essential part of Bruce's story outside of Maiden and, more importantly, some of the most vital and absorbing metal albums of the last three decades. Revisit them now at maximum volume!
