Iron Maiden: Live After Death

Sound — 10
Yeah, the "epic" Maiden songs (e.g. NOTB or HBTN) were written to be played on that kind of stuff (152 000 Watt sound system)!!! The intro begins with funny sound which supposed to be plane engine and - like in the Aces High video - the Churchill's speech. Then the show starts and your ears are attacked with heavily picked riffs of great songs from great setlist. Most of the songs sound heavier than the studio's and in some of them (HBTN, for example) there are some additional pickings and riffs by Dave (yeah, that ending with trem bar... OoOoOhhh I love it!). At the end - Running Free with one of the longest and funniest plays with audience by Brucie. Just listen to it!!!

No comments, people who listen to Maiden know how and WHAT is Brucie singing. Great, especially on Revelations and... Running Free!!!

Overall Impression — 10
Well, I battled my father for cash, but when I finally got it, the conclusion was one - Best Live Maiden Album Ever!!! What are you waiting for? To shops!!! And GIVE ME ED.
