Maiden get things going with a bang with the opener, The Wickerman. They continue on with Ghost of the Navigator and Brave New World. The song 2 Minutes to Midnight is breathtaking, along with the song, Blood Brothers. Two of my favorite tracks come from...yes...songs from the two Blaze albums he did with Iron Maiden - The Sign of the Cross and The Clansman. Even though Bruce did not write the material, he performs them with so much emotion and passion. The Evil that Men Do and Fear of the Dark sound equally good. The songs Number of the Beast, Hallowed be thy Name, and Run to the Hills caps off a brilliant live show.
Iron Maiden are my favorite band of all time. This live album is just as good as Live After Death and a great compliment to anyone's metal collection. Maiden continues to make incredible music with their Dance of Death release last year. I was able to see them perform in Los Angeles, CA for their American leg of that tour. It was a beautiful experience. Please buy this album, along with Live After Death!! These are ESSENTIAL to own for Maiden fans! This is NOT to be missed! Purchase the live DVD!!
Now, I admit I was almost yawning at the thought of 'Yet Another Live Album'. I mean, even Maiden Junkies like me can only have so many live renditions of the SAME OLD SONGS!
Alas, Rock In Rio brings the junkies 8 songs never officially released live (Wicker Man, Ghost, BNW, Blood Brothers, Sign of the Cross, Mercenary, Dream of Mirrors, and The Clansman). Of course, you still get all the regulars just in case you really wanted a 9th live version of NOB to add to your collection!
Listening to this disc brought back all the great memories of this tour. The quality is great, the production is nearly flawless and Bruce's voice holds up well. You can feel the energy here is much better than Maiden's last live offerings (Real Live/Dead One) which were tired, borish and lacking Adrian Smith. A very important piece of the puzzle.
If you like Maiden (and you should) this disc is a can't-miss.
