I definitely recommend this album to any metalhead or Iron Maiden fan.
"heavymetaljesus"
The band made many progressive changes to their sound and writing on this release, a commendable step in itself.

'Seventh Son of a Seventh Son' is Iron Maiden's good album after years and years of great albums.

It has been interesting to read the disparity of opinions held about this album. I bought this CD when it was released and have always enjoyed listening to it, but for some reason I have not yet familiarized myself with this band's other work. Thus, I can't put this particular album in any context when it comes to the history and evolution of Iron Maiden. All I can do is to comment on my own appreciation of each of the eight songs collected here in and of themselves. By my count, there are five really good songs and three absolutely great songs on this album; you won't have to go reaching across the dash to find the Next Track button when you have this CD rocking you down the road. My favorite has always been Can I Play With Madness. The band jumps right out at you from the very start with an a cappella delivery of the question at hand before proceeding with the heavy rock instrumentation. The lyrics are quite catchy, and the idea of playing with madness is not a novel concept to my somewhat abnormal mind. Infinite Dreams may really be the most impressive track here, however. The words of this song really carry a deep if not philosophical meaning, as the subject at hand deals with life's ultimate meaning. Seventh Son of a Seventh Son is the third true standout track on the album; it is a lengthy musical tour de force that conveys the image of the ultimate archetypal battle between good and evil, helped immeasurably by a segment in which the lead singer speaks as if he is reading from some ancient tome of sinister origins.
The remaining five songs, as I said, are all keepers as well. Moonchild gets the album off to a terrific start, giving us none other than Lucifer himself making threats of Biblical proportions while conjuring up the musical accompaniment of screaming mandrakes.

I remember when this album first came out. I had just become a huge Maiden fan after the previous record Somewhere In Time. By this time, I had bought their back catalogue of studio albums and was swept up by the hype surrounding the release of Seventh Son. I remember Bruce Dickinson being interviewed on MTV's Headbanger's Ball and stating this album would be "quite popular to people who have never seen this band before" because it was the best album they had made to date and it was going to take Maiden in new, exciting directions. Then I saw the video for "Can I Play With Madness," and that whetted my appetite even more (O.K., many fans at the time thought the song was too commercial, but it is still awesome and one of their best singles ever!). I recall bugging the record store clerks many times with "Have you got the new Iron Maiden album in yet?" I don't think I have ever been so excited about an album release before or since! When I finally bought it (I wanted it on cassette, but the store was out so I opted for vinyl because I couldn't wait), I think I was slightly disappointed at first. My expectations were a bit too high. But the more I played it, the more I liked it. When I listen to it now, after all this time, I can really appreciate the genius of it. A true conceptual album about a child born with clairvoyant powers (the seventh son of a seventh son), who did not ask to be born this way and has problems dealing with the strange circumstances he finds himself in as well as the forces of good and evil battling for his soul. The music is brilliant, with accoustical guitar, keyboards and other additions to transform Maiden's sound. In retrospect, Seventh Son was the last great Maiden album. Instead of being a stepping stone to more Maiden innovations, it proved to be Maiden's peak. Things seemed to go down hill after this record, with Adrian Smith and Dickinson eventually leaving to work on their own projects.

I honestly don't know how anyone that appreciates good music can cut down this album. It's firmly situated in the upper-echelon of Maiden's best albums. The song writing is incredibly strong, despite some lack of cohesiveness in certain tracks. People dismissing the lyrics as corny are missing the point entirely. This is a CONCEPT ALBUM...it's trying to tell a story, but too many pabulum-fed fools can't understand this. Maiden has never been about delivering astonishingly deep music with reams of depth and relevence to world issues or anything...it's about cheap-thrill metal that sounds great. As always, Bruce's urgent vocals are incredible and are sung with his ineffable intensity. Being a Maiden album, the music is awesome and intricately layered, with their powerful signature riffs and mind-bending solos. People complaining about synthed music are simply ignoring what this album is about...the use of synthed audio adds to the drama and the power of the story. It doesn't detract from the music in ANY way, but it isn't thoughtless either. Unfortunately, certain mindless people can't accept diversity and effect if it offends the sensibilities of THEIR ideal image for Maiden. Every song on 7th Son is excellent...some parts are slow, some are fast, but all are powerful. This is the pinnacle of the band's albums.

This CD is just as good as "Somewhere In Time" is, and "Somewhere In Time" is MAIDEN's best CD, so that's saying a lot for "7th Son of a 7th Son" CD here.

Anyways, yep, this MAIDEN's concept album.

8 songs = 1 big storyline.

1. Moonchild - The destiny of what will happen to the 7th Son. The devil automatically comes to do away with the one that would bless and heal the World. The Legend of the Moonchild is what that is based on. Also, it is somewhat similar to the life of Jesus kind-of. For example: "This child was born to die!!!!!"

2. Infinite Dreams - The 7th Son's parents have crazy nightmares and dreams about their son's life and the things that he will do.

3. Can I Play with Madness? - The 7th Son's parents go to local prophet to get answers to the crazy dreams, but the prophet is no help to them, and only critizes them, and pronounces a doom on that family.

4. The Evil that Men Do - The 7th Son's parents plan on having a 7th Son.

5. Seventh Son of a Seventh Son title song - The 7th Son is born and is monitored by his family of how he will become. The 7th Son has all kinds of healing and prophetic power to see into the future for good purposes to bring a blessing to mankind. Similar to Jesus.

6. The Prophecy - The 7th Son is rejected, even though he saw that his hometown was going to be destroyed soon, but no one believed him or that he really was the 7th Son. The town is destroyed, but the 7th Son tried to warn them, but no one listened, and no one believed him. The towns people just thought that he was just an ordiary person, and not the 7th Son that was promised. (Similar to Jesus in His hometown of Nazareth).

7. The Clairvoyant - The 7th Son is at the peak of his life.
