Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son

Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son by Iron Maiden
Released: Jan 1988
Label: Sanctuary
Despite a heavier reliance on synthesizers than Somewhere in Time, this 1988 release debuted at No. 1 in England and scored hits with the late-period classics "Can I Play with Madness," "The Clairvoyant" and "The Evil That Men Do." As usual, Bruce Dickinson alternately sounds tough as nails and touched by either God or the one cast out of heaven by God. The songs are marked by dramatic tempo and mood shifts, and that double-guitar thrum hurtles underneath everything. A decidedly stronger effort than Somewhere in Time, Seventh Son proved Iron Maiden were far from finished.
