Album Commentary

 

This is part II of the Man On The Edge single from The X Factor album. The highlight of this version of the single is the Murray/Harris song 'Justice Of The Peace'. It also features a continuation of the Blaze Bayley interview, but otherwise there aren't many differences from Part I. A different song from The X Factor should probably have been chosen for track 2 of this version of the single, perhaps 'Fortunes Of War'. An even better alternative would have been to only have one version of the single that included 'Justice Of The Peace' and the complete Blaze interview.

Rod Smallwood's comments are taken from the Best Of The B'Sides album booklet included in the Eddie's Archive box.

'Justice Of The Peace' is another very good song which didn't make it on The X Factor. It laments the rise of crime in society and the failure of the judicial system to handle this crime. Interestingly, in Canada a "Justice of the Peace" is another name for a police officer. So perhaps this song is also a call for greater police protection of society.

Both 'Justice Of The Peace' and 'Judgement Day' were written at the time of the X-Factor but didn't make the album as you can only get 74 minutes of music on a CD!

  Blaze Bayley Interview, Part II (Wilfort, Bayley) Commentary Lyrics Discuss in the forum

This is the continuation of the interview with Blaze Bayley that was begun in Part I of the single. It seems to be dated relatively soon after the release of The X Factor.
