Best Iron Maiden live recording ever!,
This review is from: Flight 666 (2CD) (Audio CD)
I've got into Iron Maiden maybe 8 or 9 years ago, but I own all of their live albums and DVDs or VHS tapes (and all their studio albums as well).
I have got to say that this is without a doubt my favorite live Iron Maiden album to date. Not only because it has my favorite tracklist which I will mention later, but it's the best recording and best performances yet - yes, even better than Live After Death which is all I need to say about how top notch the performances on this live album. Any Iron Maiden fan knows how awesome Live After Death was!
And I nearly had an accident when I saw the tracklist. Four of my favorite Iron Maiden songs are Moonchild, Aces High, Rime of the Ancient Mariner and The Evil That Men Do, the latter being the only one that stayed in their setlist past 1990ish. The other three tracks made their way back into the setlist and onto this recording, as well as several other songs that haven't been on the setlist in some time (Powerslave, The Clairvoyant, Wasted Years, Heaven Can Wait, Revelations) as well as some of their most popular and some of their mainstays (2 Minutes to Midnight, The Trooper, The Number of the Beast, Run to the Hills, Fear of the Dark).
To be honest, if I made the setlist the only thing I would change is I might try to get Afraid to Shoot Strangers, Man on the Edge (which is a great song, especially when Bruce sings it), The Thin Line Between Love And Hate and possibly The Evil That Men Do and/or Infinite Dreams in there somehow. I'm happy enough having Moonchild, Aces High, Rime of the Ancient Mariner and Powerslave.
