Some love for “The Evil That Men Do”
Those of you who come here a lot know that I absolutely despise "Can I Play With Madness?", and I think that it had a spoiler effect on me regarding the rest of the 7th Son album. Sure we all like the strong tracks like Moonchild and Infinite Dreams, but I just never really connected with the singles…
…until yesterday when I was at work and listening to THIS Maiden 8-bit playlist. As an 80's kid who grew up playing NES, Gameboy and Master System, the 8-bit sounds are very dear to my heart: they remind me of all those long hours playing Megaman, Kid Icarus, Double Dragon and Operation: Contra. Finally while hearing the 8-bit version I realized how great of a song "The Evil That Men Do" is: very rhythmic, melodic, and dynamic. It keeps going, never gets dull, and then keeps going some more.
