4 stars Seventh Son of the Seventh Son is the first Iron Maiden album I listened to in very late 80s, i was just a teenager. It impressed me big time and thus, IM has become one of my favourite bands. As with the previous album - Somewhere in Time - the use of keyboards continues, still greatly and cleverly. The title track is a brilliant epic, one of the best Maiden songs ever. Again, i'll have to say there are no filler tracks here, even the accessible Can I Play with Madness works nicely. The highlights of the album are Infinite Dreams, Clairvoyant, The Evil that Men Do, The Prophecy and the title song. Moonchild is a great opener and also Only the Good Die Young closes the album nicely giving the impression of a concept album.

This album is a must-have for all prog-rock and prog-metal fans. It's probably Maiden proggiest album. Enough said.
