Tied with Somewhere In Time, Seventh Son is my favorite Maiden album. I know all the lyric and can replay the entire album in my head. I love every song and really don't have a favorite. However, I enjoy singing Infinite Dreams the most (one of my all time favorite songs to sing) so I voted for it.

I had to go with the title track. Tough one though, because "The Clairvoyant" is one of my all-time favorite Maiden tunes.

The Clairvoyant. Those calm guitars breaks won me.

Title track, but the whole album is GREAT. Love what can be considered the "deep tracks", The Prophecy and Only The Good Die Young. They are also the only songs not every played live off the album. Hopefully they fix that this year and play the whole album. When I was in England, some of the crew told me that Bruce was trying to convince the band to play the whole album live - won't find out if he succeeded until June through!

I don't see why it would be so hard. Steve Harris has often sited Seventh Son as his favorite in the past. I'd love to see that.

This is definitely my favorite Maiden album, and it was tough to choose just one favorite. I was torn between "Infinite Dreams" and "Only the Good Die Young", but I ended up choosing "Infinite Dreams".

The title track. My other two favorites would be "Moonchild" and "The Clairvoyant". Once again as with most Maiden, I really like the whole album though.

I have only listened to the entire album once (as long as I've been into metal, it's actually the newest addition to my CD collection). I have known some songs a lot longer than others. I am torn between "The Evil That Men Do" and "Only the Good Die Young", but I voted for the latter because "The Evil That Men Do" seemed too obvious and I wanted to do something different. Very Happy

The Clairvoyant hands down but a great album that never grows old.

Funny thing is with this album,I was a bit disappointed in it when it came out for some reason but now it ranks close to the top for me in their discography.

Without a doubt "Moonchild". I enjoy the album, but I've always felt that this was the standout track on the album.

I was one of the few people in my group of friends who really loved this album when it was released, most of the others thought Maiden was "washed up" and bands like Metallica were the "real deal" by that point. Of course, most of my friends only listened to metal, they just wanted fast and heavy in 1988.

Since I grew up listening to 1970s radio and was familiar with Yes and Rush and Pink Floyd (and liked that music equally as well as metal), I think I approached Seventh Son from a different perspective. I heard the album as a natural progression of what they had already been doing, Somewhere In Time had pointed the direction, Seventh was a completely logical follow-up. The songs were great, the performances inspired and thankfully when I listen to this album today, it really hasn't dated...I cannot say the same thing for alot of other metal albums from 1988.

I was REALLY bummed when No Prayer For The Dying came out however, I felt like they totally squandered the momentum they had achieved with their previous 2 albums, instead unnaturally trying to record a "straight-ahead" record that came off just as shallow and obvious as it's intent.

When bands start to second-guess what they "think" their audience wants...that's when mistakes happen. You write and record music to please YOURSELF, if the audience digs it then great, if they don't, at least you were honest and stuck to your guns.

Man, No Prayer had me thinking they'd run out of gas. Now, I can sort of appreciate some of it but it's a weak on in their catalog.
