The most perfect album I have ever listened to.,
This review is from: Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son (Audio CD)
The most perfect album I have ever listened to, from thousands, because each song is so good, and lead into each other so well. Musically extremely proficient, lyrically inventive, and conceptually marvellous. One of the few albums, if not the only one, where I feel I must listen to each song in order. There is no real reason for this, aside from Iron Maiden choosing this, and me nearly moved nearly to tears as one song ends and another begins.
The best Iron Maiden album, if not the best music album for its inventiveness, the epic feel and the impression you get that you are listening to genius rock musicians with a decade of ground-breaking music producing experience.
I love many things in life, but I think this one album demonstrates the very best of teamwork, imagination and talent. The 1980s can seem dated from many perspectives, but Seventh Son of a Seventh Son makes me extremely proud to have been part of it.
What makes this all the better is that this album exited at a time when all other music was, for me awful. Ironically, my least favourite song from this album, Can I Play with Madness, did well in the charts. It is a good song, but I just prefer all the others as they are more thought provoking and inventive, says it all perhaps...
