5 stars I've been listening to both this and A Matter Of Life And Death in the car over the past week.Although AMOLAD is very good, Seventh Son of A Seventh Son is one mighty album that to be honest just wipes the floor with it.This is Iron Maiden at the top of their game ...and for that matter at the top of the metal tree looking down from a great height at the rest.

The songs are all strong.You don't have any weak moments and at times the band are on fire.But it just not aimless guitar solos for the sake of it.Maiden have crafted an album with an overall theme that glues the tracks together.I do feel that I'm getting something that is whole.I also very much like the production which is clear and dynamic.The drum sound is spot on especially.

So is this prog? I think so.Prog should not have a narrow definition.This is enjoyable to listen to because its not about being loud and fast.Its music with enough twists and turns to keep me happy.
