Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Recorded during Iron Maiden's headlining 2001 performance at the Rio Rock Festival, this double CD finds the legendary metal outfit in fearsome form. Revitalized thanks to the return of original singer Bruce Dickinson for 2000's Brave New World, the one-time East London bar band clearly relishes tearing through old and choice new songs in front of 250,000 people--the biggest crowd they'd ever seen. This is traditional metal at its squealing, pummeling best. Established classics like "Wrathchild" and "Two Minutes to Midnight" reemphasize all that is unashamedly great about proper heavy metal, including the rock-solid riffing, the brick-outhouse rhythms, and the outrageous solos. The early 1980s hits "Number of the Beast" and "Run to the Hills" prove that Iron Maiden can deliver a sing-along chorus that will rattle around the inside of your skull for hours, if not days. What really makes Rock in Rio, though, is the near studio-quality production and the rabid reaction of the South American throng, who do their best to drown out the band. Here is proof, if any is needed, that Dickinson and company are up there with the rock greats. --Ian Watson

5.0 out of 5 stars Maiden's best since 'Live After Death'. March 28, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Well I must say that I am surprised! 'Rock In Rio' includes great set list, two live cds, extra audio samples from their twelve albums and footage from their up-and-coming 'Rock In Rio' DVD--???? What else can an Iron Maiden fan ask for? The actual live performance is fantanstic and is so much tighter than previous Maiden performances (i.e. 'A Real Live One/A Real Dead One', 'Live At Donnington' which lacked the energy and synchronisation that we expect from IM). I couldn't tell you what a treat it is to hear Adrian back playing the guitar with Maiden again--with Dave and Janick still there, it is an amazing triple-guitar attack. I couldn't have recieved much of a better birthday present than this; I am really looking foward to the DVD of 'Rock In Rio'. Heck, I don't even think that 'Live After Death' was as good as this. Dickinson's voice is back in top-form, Harris is relentess playing bass, Nicko never misses a beat and everyone sounds great. All metal fans will love this album--buy it if you are a true fan of metal. There are 250,000 people in the audience and they sing-along and roar through it all the way. Listen to "The Clansman" and tell me that that is not an emotional experience. Enjoy.
Peace, bros.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scream for me, BRAZIL!!!!!!!!!!! May 25, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow. Imagine being part of the crowd during Iron Maiden's stop to Rio de Janerio for their Brave New World tour. Just think being part of 250,000 screaming brazilians who know every word to every song that Iron Maiden perform. Also imagine Iron Maiden's best live album released since Live After Death. Finally, imagine Bruce Dickinson, the voice of Iron Maiden, back with the band to stay!

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!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best live album ever!! July 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
250,000 people. I would call that an astronomical lot of people at any place, at a given time. While all previous live efforts by Maiden suffered a lot in production (esp. the drums), this one excels. Infact, the songs from Brave New World sound so much better live than in studio. Bruce Dickinson wails and shrieks like he used to before. The crowd is more vociferous and full of energy. This is a thoroughly exemplifying performance that proves that rock is indeed not dead...and that heavy metal will always remain the cockroach of rock...omnipotent and eternal.
People who hate this album, as I presume, must belong to the hordes of fans of nu-metal or rock-rap. Here's a message to all you folks who think old-school is dead...FILL A STADIUM FULL OF 250,000 FANS, AND THEN WE'LL TALK!!
Hail the Irons!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Scrrrrream for me Brazil!!!! December 6, 2005
By Eddie
Format:Audio CD
Holy crap!! With the 2 last great studio albums, Maiden put out another excellent live album. This live album is the proof that the modern Maiden is just good as the 80's Maiden and that even these days they can still crank metal that is actually metal. This live album is easily Maiden's best, even better than 'Live After Death' (which kicked ass as well), and I'll tell you why.

Some reviewers here claim that LAD was better because that had the best tracklist, but c'mon, what do you wan't them to do, to make 5 live albums with the same tracklist?
Other complain that it has nothing from the late 80's albums except for 'The Evil Men That Do', and even this sounds better here. I was surprised to not see 'Wasted Years' or 'Heaven Can Wait' here, but 'Somewhere in Time' is actually my least favorite IM album from the 80's so it doesn't really bother me.
Here you have what the 90's songs lacked, and this is Bruce vocals and Adrian's killer solos. My favorite track here is 'Fear of the Dark', and it is the best version ever made to this song, with Adrian's solo. 'Sign of the Cross' is also much better than the studio version, Blaze sang this well but Bruce did it better.
Most of the early 80's songs sound better on LAD with the exception of 'Hallowed Be Thy Name' and 'Run to the Hills', because of Bruce vocals, but the still kick here.
There is also 3 guitarists, and believe me, it helps here. And there is also double bass drumming, which wasn't on LAD, and that really helps in tracks like 'Hallowed be thy Name', but this song still sounds at its best in the studio.
There are some songs that sound even better live like those I listed above, but as well 'Blood Brothers', 'Ghost of the Navigator', 'Clansman' and 'Run to the Hills'.
