It's the Eighties, so be prepared to have fun listening to some excessive axework in this great live record. Yngwie plays here with the intensity you expect from a guitar hero of his magnitude, up to burning his guitar out. His performance is passionate and brilliant, even when he missed out some notes here and there - but I love that: he didn't hide his errors in order to retain the actual "taste" of the live show, and I think that's a very honest attitude.
The guy unarguably is one of the greatest guitar players of all times - yes, he is; in spite of any critic, any rumor (or fact) about his ego, any repetitive playing or anything else. :-) This album demonstrates how good he actually is, as Yngwie proudly shows all his abilities off, from the purely neoclassic shredding in "Black Star" and "Trilogy Suite", to the explicit quotes to Paganini, Bach, Beethoven and the likes all the way along, to the frantic riffing in any of his own songs with vocals, to the bluesly soloing in the Hendrix's song "Spanish Castle Magic" and in "Spacebo Blues" - at whose end he also amuses the crowd with some great feedback and guitar effects.
Furthermore, the choice of sung pieces is great. This CD contains many of the best vocal tracks of Yngwie's early solo career - mainly from "Trilogy" and "Odyssey". Joe Lynn Turner's mellow vocals seamlessly fit into Yngwie's style, yet doing far better than Mark Boals when singing those songs from the "Trilogy" album. The production honors his voice, and that's fair to his amazing performance.
Lynn is a great songwriter too. "Odyssey" (the studio album to whose tour this gig belongs to) includes a bunch of amazing material.

This is the best Yngwie album! I been listening to Yngwie since the "Rising Force" days. This album has great sound, and the band is sounding good this night. If you still like a little double bass druming, and keyboards with Yngwie's awesome guitar, this is prefect!

What you'll find about Yngwie J. Malmsteen is, that what he says is true: when he gets in front of a sold out crowd, watch out! His playing is more intensified live than in the studio, if you can belive that. The shining moment on this live set is, of course, the guitar solo, with the trilogy suite in there. By the time you get to the end of his solo and hear what sounds like Satan dishing out some massive melodic feedback, you just shake your head and wonder how he does it. Incredible live performance of his earlier stuff here. Don't let this one get by you. And you'll definitely give it up for the cover of Jimi Hendrix's, Spanish Castle Magic: killer job on that cover. 5 STAR MALMSTEEN RATING FROM SCRAGGY'S TOMB OF POWER METAL, USA.

Yngwie Malmsteen has always been a rock guitarist's rock guitarist. His combination of heavy metal with classical chord progressions and violin stylings influenced by the likes of J.S Bach and Niccolo Paganini were copied by tons of wanna be guitar heros and his Top 40 hit "Heaven Tonight" from 1988's ODYSSEY had seen him claim a broader audience for his guitar pyrotechnics. This album 1989's TRIAL BY FIRE: LIVE IN LENINGRAD, recorded at the final show of Yngwie's world tour in support of the ODYSSEY disc, is a poor affair that seems stitched together. For anyone who has seen the live concert video of the same name will be appalled at this record. Most of the guitar solos are redone as are the vocals and leaving off concert opener "Rising Force" seems like a travesty of justice. High points include "Queen In Love", "Deja Vu", and "Heaven Tonight", as well as Yngwie standards like "Black Star" and "Far Beyond The Sun". This album seems like a patchwork process and is destroyed by in studio recordings. If you want a better Yngwie live experience, get this VHS concert if you can find it. Yngwie was only the second artist from the west (Billy Joel was the first) to play in Mother Russia and this live album seemed to close the book on him as a guitar icon. This could have been much better

Yngwie sure shows his talents in this album. His fingers were storming up and down the guitar neck, and the sound was great for a live album.

I love Yngwie Malmsteen, I'm sorry, I may not be that objective in my opinion (but I don't think so), forgive me if this is the case, but that's it. I love the man and his music (at least his BEST music like the performance recorded in Leningrad). I'm a guitar wanker from the eighties too in the end, so I can't do nothing but LOVE the man. He in the eighties meant something very special, a new way of approaching the instrument, the techniques, the music, the same idea of the guitar hero role. He is a GIANT in the history of the guitar, noone can deny this thing. He did his time, probably his career may be considered closed now, because artistically he has already given all what he could give, ... but man, at the time when this album was released, he was the King. This album is Yngwie's finest hour in my opinion. Apart from the LEGENDARY first record, Rising Force, this is the album I would suggest to someone who would ask me the album to know and appreciate Yngwie Malmteen's music. We all know of course which music is it. Neoclassical music, an hard rock shaped with some classical forms and parts here and there and with a mindblowing guitar work allover. So I'll not spend too much words on Yngwie's brand of music. I'd simply say that this album is the recording of a fantastic concert, where Yngwie played almost all his best songs and instrumentals (some of them may have been left out, but hey ... it's just a single cd), with great intensity and passion, displaying all his arsenal of licks and ideas with an attitude SO bad that is a pure delight!! The band is tight (fantastic are the duels between Yngwie and Jens Johansson the keys player) and supports Yngwie in the best way.Read more ›
