This is probably my least favorite cd by Iced Earth. However, that doesn't mean it's not great! I love this disc, and would like to recommend it to anyone interested in real metal. Something Wicked... has much diversity; ballad-type songs - Melancholy (Holy Martyr), Watching Over Me to classic works of metal such as Burning Times, Disciples of the Lie, Stand Alone, and My Own Savior.
I must disagree with two things the last guy said, though.
1. Stand Alone doesn't "copy" Blackened, there is one riff that is reminiscent of it. I doubt that this was intentional.
2. This cd doesn't really sum up Iced Earth. Everything they have done is different. Something Wicked.. certainly doesn't cover every aspect of their entire catalogue. If you want that, buy Alive in Athens.
