5 stars Seventh album and best one!

I'm not at all a maiden's fan and I'm not really into their other stuff but this one worth the listen. On this concept album, they fully introduced keyboard ant it sounds great.

The songs Moonchild and The evil that men do are excellent and Seventh Son of a Seventh Son is in my opinion the best song Iron maiden ever made. Can I play with madness is great even if it sounds more radio friendly. The clairvoyant has great chorus and the rest of the song is not boring at all.Only the good dies young is a good closure but could have been a lot better.It sound a lot too much like a song which could have been on their other album. Infinite Dreams bring to the album a sound we are not use at all by Maiden.The song that I didn't completly liked is The prophecy.

But through the entire album each song fit into each other creating a great work. There is no doubt this work is a progressive act and is the best album they did up to now

Moonchild 5/5 Infinite Dreams 4/5 Can I play with madness 4/5 The evil that men do 4.5/5 Seventh Son of a Seventh Son 5/5 The Prophecy 3/5 The clairvoyant 4/5 Only the good dies young 3/5

4.5 / 5 stars May be it's not the total the song rating would give but it's all the songs together that makes that album great

Wilgod3p | 5/5 |
