Sound: First off, if you have already took time to read all the Maiden reviews, you have noticed people have nothing but good things to say about them. I love Maiden, and they did a great job with this DVD as always. Sound wise was great, during some songs the guitar drowns out bruces voice or maybe its my sound sytem. They did a great job though, the overall sound is great quality, and even better when it's cranked up loud the way it was meant to be. Maiden really did a great job performing, it really captures that high energy feeling that you can't get with the CD version I think. // 8

Overall Impression: This is probably one of my favorite concert DVD's and I would probably be tempted to buy it again if I lost it. I am a big fan so watching this DVD was a lot of fun, if you hold your concert DVD expectations really high then make your own review. I loved how it captured how much energy they really put into there performances. The 3 guitar attack between Adrian, Janick, and Dave was entertaining. The sound was almost identical to some of there studio stuff during some songs that it was scary and other songs were a lot different and had a lot of improv stuff added in, which helped to balance it out. If your a true Maiden fan, this is the DVD to have. // 10

Sound: The sound of iron Maiden is unique, Steve Harris writes songs from the bass and then the guitars follow him on what he does rythem wise, no other band does that. This isen't just another Iron Maiden concert. It is Rock In Rio, one of the biggest rock festivals in the world. The sound of Iron Maiden is one of a kind. Even if you don't like metal check out Iron Maiden I recomend buying Edward the great. // 10

Overall Impression: I have seen a few rock/metal dvds and concerts, this tops most of them. The size of the stadium at rock in rio is XXXL, it is literally the size of a football field(American football). Also on one of the tracks "Fear Of The dark", the crowd sings along with Bruce which is vastly impressive considering the song is in english and your in Brazil. If this DVD was stolen from me id kick the ass of every shady charicter until I got it back. // 10

Sound: This is one of the first times I hear Iron Maiden. Rock In Rio is filmed about a breathtaking concert in Rio De Janeiro, in front of 5 000 000 people. It was actually much better than I'd thought Iron Maiden is. It is definately my favourite heavy metal- band. The music style is heavy metal, but I was impressed about it, it actually sounded like music, not like the screeching you usually hear from other heavy and death metal bands. The members of Iron Maiden seemed quite talented. // 9

Overall Impression: Iron Maiden is definately the best Heavy Metal band that I've heard. The most impressive thing on the DVD is actually the fact that over 5 000 000 people came to the concert! I love just about everything on this DVD, except that the quality of the production should have been better. Iron Maiden did a great concert, congrats to them! If I'd lose this DVD etc. I would not get this same DVD again but maybe another Iron Maiden one, I don't know. I recommend this to every heave metal-lover and to other people too. // 9

Sound: Wow, watching this DVD with Bruce Dickinson bouncing off the walls we got them throwing drum sticks into the crowd one moshpit started and it was just amazing. The energy, the passion, and the talent that these guys put into there music is inspirational. The sounded amzing the had every song perfectly done no mistakes Bruce Dickinson's voice didn't "run out", and also a special thanks to Michael Kenney foir live keyboard. // 7

Overall Impression: Think about a Scorpions concert back than, it's as intense as that is only in this millenium, most impressive thing is how they just went on and on no breaks, extreme energy, I mean common Bruce jumped on a moving camera whi8le it was looking at the crowd, the only thing I don't like about it is the longest song on there (Sign Of The Cross) wasn't as intense. If I lost this DVD or if it was stolen I would definetley buy it again. // 7
