Format:Audio CD
This album was the last of the great five maiden albums before the more suicidal albums like "No Prayer for the dying" and "Virtual XI". Thankfully before the transtition to poor albums they ended their eighties existence with their best album to date! This album was a concept album based on an ancient legend about "the seventh son of a seventh son" and the songs were reflections on the legend. Talking about whether the child would use his psychic powers for the good of others and to aid healing, or whether he would use them for his own ends which could be evil. A cool idea for an album by all means and proved a good base for what was to become a memorable album. Here is my song by song breakdown: -
Track 1) - Moonchild
This track is quite fast paced and seems like a good opener to the album, not a classic track but certainly not weak!
rating - 8/10
Track 2) - Infinite dreams
This track is one of the four singles that was released from it and it is obvious why. The song is very melodic and quite slow in places, however the lyrics talking about visions of past, present and future do grab you and all in all is a worthy song.
Rating - 9/10
Track 3) - Can I play with madness?
This song is the one song on the album that doesn't fit the style of music. While the others are dark, grim and philosophical. This song is fast, upbeat and insane! However that isn't a fault and the fact it charted at number three backs that theory up.
Rating - 9/10
Track 4) - The evil that men do
This is one of Maiden's strongest ever songs. It has flash guitar, great vocals, fantastic lyrics and mass appeal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nearly Great 3 Mar 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
This isn't a review of seventh son the album as plenty of praise has been heaped on it and indeed all of Maidens 80's output over the years,and rightly so,they're in a league of their own.This is about the 2012/2013 gatefold picture discs as stand alone items.

I didn't "need" these,is what i tried to tell myself.Being a fan of the band for over 25 years,I had several copies of each album already,so i hemmed and hawed about getting them and missed out on getting the box.But as those of us of a certain age know, all logic tends to go out the window where Iron Maiden are concerned and browsing through my local record store a short time later, I saw the piece of mind disc calling to me,so I bought it, just to see what they were like, and BOOM I was reeled in,had to get the rest!

On a positive note,and there are a good few to be found here,namely the richer colour of the sublime album artwork,the gate fold with band pics inside,some new,some slight variations on what we've seen before,all excellent.Then there's the discs themselves...Derek Riggs genius brought to life on a glossy heavy duty vinyl, speaks for itself really,lovely stuff,visually you can't fault 'em.

Admittedly I've always been a sucker for a picture disc,despite the often inferior sound quality,and it's with the sound and quality of the pressing that sadly we have to knock off a few points.
As anyone who's been around vinyl will attest to picture discs are a hit and miss affair.I have some that sound pretty good and some that are unplayable they're that poor.These Maiden ones sound ok to me as it goes,some might even say good, again considering they're pic discs,and i'd have been more than happy with them if it weren't for the fact that on certain tracks on certain albums there are skips.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maiden's finest! 1 Jun 2004
Format:Audio CD
Slated by fans and critics alike for using keyboards on the record, this album proved that Iron Maiden did exactly what they wanted. For a band at their commercial peak no fan expected what amounted to a heavy prog' rock album. Swirling keyboards on the title track to the accapella harmonies on "Can I Play With Madness" this lp has them all. Adrian Smith's lead guitar is outstanding on what was to be his (temporarily) swansong recording with the band. Quite simply the best Iron Maiden Studio album. It came out in 1988 - buy it now!!

Format:Audio CD
All Iron Maiden albums from "The Number Of The Beast" to "Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son" are absolute classics and timeless masterpieces. I grew up listening to these records, and I know every lyric, every pause, every guitar tone and every tempo change by heart. So, more than sad, I'm really angry to have to say that all the "enhanced" 1998 releases are complete sonic disasters, "loudness war" productions with the audio dynamic range slaughtered by whoever was responsible for doing the remastering. It seems that the idea was to turn all the way up the sound of every single instrument and vocal line with no regard to the equilibrium between them within the music's context. I almost cried in anger when I heard those guitar chords at the start of the song "Moonchild", with the originally carefully distorted tone turned into a mass of just plain annoying, pointless distortion, and all the feeling lost.

Every time I get to write about a dear album destroyed by a "loudness war" remaster, I ask people to go to a search engine like Google and look up the expression (between quotes for an exact match). There are over 47,000 results for it on Google alone. The "loudness war" refers to a trend which started in the late nineties in the music industry to record CD's at increasingly higher volume levels, in an attempt to lure buyers into believing that they were getting a better product because it's a "remaster" and it sounds louder. What happens most of the time is the exact opposite - masterpieces like this album are sonically cannibalized, and often (although not the case here) the audio volume is pushed beyond the limits of the CD format's specitications, which causes parts of the sound to get "clipped" (cut off, lost) because they don't "fit" within the available range.
