4 stars What a great album by one of metals most skilled and influential bands. To many this album is still considered part of the golden era of Iron Maiden, and it deserves to be considered as such. The opening track gets you hooked right from the get go. Though the story is not as clear as other albums, it still works. What I really enjoy is the musicianship, top notch throughout the entire album, Steve Harris and Nicko McBrian really standout on this album. In my mind there is no weak track and this album is almost just as good as the number of the beast, piece of mind and power slave. I consider it to be more enjoyable than somewhere in time, though that is a good album and a review for another time. What makes Seventh Son work so well, is that fact that Iron Maiden steps into progressive territory but remains true to what we have enjoyed about them all along, a definite four star album because it is so close to perfection and definitely worth adding to ones collection, especially if you're a maiden fan, after all the Blaze Bailey stuff that follows is garbage.
