Album Review

Malmsteen shocked some longtime listeners with his heavy reliance on blues-rock on this album, especially his extensive, Hendrix-influenced use of a wah-wah pedal. This alone makes the album necessary for Malmsteen fans, even though his more neo-classical work (solos, instrumentals, etc.) seems less inspired here. And the saccharine ballad "Prisoner of Your Love" is downright embarrassing.

Customer Reviews

"Never Die"

"Never Die" is one of the best power metal songs you will ever hear. That song aside, this album was a letdown for me when it was released, because it had to follow Fire & Ice, one of my favorite Yngwie albums. Seventh Sign is just too generic. While Yngwie explored the use of strings on Fire & Ice and pushed the pace on some songs into speed metal territory, Seventh Sign is comprised of rehashes of previous compositions. The closing song, "I Can't Wait" is an interesting composition that breaks from the standard Yngwie pop song structure found in "Heaven Tonight" or "Making Love." Really, "Never Die" and "I Can't Wait" are the only two songs that I would recommend downloading. "Bad Blood" is also a pretty good metal blues song, and Yngwie should have really explored this territory more. The rest of the songs are merely shadows of songs done better on previous albums. Also, the singer is really trying his best to imitate Göran Edman, and to his credit, he does a pretty good job, but I end up just wishing Göran had sung on the album and helped to write better songs.

Good Job Yngwie

Selling your soul to me 20 years ago has really paid off, now they worship you like a God. Time to reap the fruits of my kindness my Child.

Biography

Born: June 30, 1963 in Stockholm, Sweden

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Yngwie Malmsteen is arguably the most technically accomplished hard rock guitarist to emerge during the '80s. Combining a dazzling technique honed over years of obsessive practice with a love for such classical composers as Bach, Beethoven, and Paganini, Malmsteen's distinctively Baroque, gothic compositional style and lightning-fast arpeggiated solos rewrote the book on heavy metal guitar. His largely instrumental debut album, Rising Force, immediately upped the ante for aspiring hard rock guitarists...
