Iron Maiden has always been a band that was willing to experiment with new styles, even if it meant risking their entire fan base. 1986's Somewhere In Time proved this beautifully - but the experimental/progressive sound succeeded in making them more popular than ever! Before the band fell down to earth, they would shell out one more progressive masterpiece - 1988's Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son. This would be the last Maiden album for twelve years to feature the classic Dickinson/Smith/Murray/McBrain/Harris line-up (Smith left after this album.) Read on for track comments, as well as my comments on the remaster series.
Moonchild - An excellent melodic rocker, they simply could not have started the album better.
Infinite Dreams - This one starts slow and melodic, but soon enough it becomes a lengthy (and damn good) instrumental session. Another good track.
Can I Play With Madness - This is the band's most overrated song, period (Running Free is second), but it's still very good. It's a solid melodic rocker with the band in tip top shape. Need I Say More?
The Evil That Men Do - An excellent rocker that captures the band in its prime. It's no wonder it's become a fan favorite!
Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son - The title track of the album often goes unappreciated for some unknown reason. Why? This is quite possibly the best song on the album!
The Prophecy - Possibly the weakest track here, but also the most underrated. The chorus to this one must be heard to be appreciated.
The Clairvoyant - Another fan favorite. Once again, the band serves up a winner. I don't think anything else needs to be said about this one.Read more ›
