I found 'Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son' in a small stand run by a German near the canals of Amsterdam. I cost me 5 euros, besides I read a good review about it, 'their last great album.'
My favorite Maiden album is 1995 The X Factor.
I'd say its best to listen to the other albums if you wanted to and decide for yourself instead of someone on the internet.
Some albums people just hate because everyone else says it and they never even heard them.
According to the internet British Steel and Screaming for Vengeance is the best Judas Priest albums. That's funny because they are ranked in 14-16 of 16 place with Point Of Entry for me.
And Priest is my favorite band.
Not to say I don't enjoy songs off those albums its just they are not the best at all.
