During my youth I was a huge metal fan, and to be honest, I still am.

While the critics bang on about the big four of metal - Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax and Slayer - they are nothing compared to Iron Maiden.

Don't get me wrong, Metallica's first three albums are metal masterpieces, but above all metal albums sits the Maiden's masterful seventh studio album Seventh Son of a Seventh Son.

Each song is an epic journey through the instruments of the band members in their prime. The album produced a number of top 40 hits and still sells in the millions to this day.

A friend's dad, 68, best sums it up by saying, "it's like metal went classical". 

Pure gold, which is why it's still in my car to this day.

If you have never heard it, jump on iTunes and listen to 'Infinite Dreams'.
