Not The Best Maiden Release Not By A Long Shot.
15 February 2003 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

i have been a die-hard Maiden fan sinse august 1990 and i always will be Metal rules no other type of music can come close to Metal.

but this is not Maiden's best live performance the CD of this concert is less than average it's below Maiden's usual quality i don't know what went wrong it doesn't sound right when the CD is playing i went through 3 copies (returned it 3 times) and they are all the same so it's not the CD thats at fault it's the fool who mixed it, it's got to be.

the picture quality of the DVD of this concert is really good one or two of the songs don't live up to my expectations like for instance = hallowed be thy name (the best maiden song ever) and sign of the cross & dream of mirror's. i just don't get goose bumps when certain part's of those songs go fast in the instrumental section's like i used to they don't have the same kick to them on this DVD (sorry but it's true).

this release will never better the concert with the immortal line: ''scream for me long beach'' as spoken by the man himself Bruce Dickinson.

this is the only fault on the mighty Maiden's discography ever other live release is and always will be superior to this - live at donington & live after death & raising hell.

it's the only weak album in the Maiden arsenal. i'm not happy with it as i said i'll always be a die-hard Maiden fan. but then die hards can be disappointed at times as well. but i'll always be there banging my head with my fist in the air, death to pop and the fools that listen to it.

rating for this 5/10.
