Other than this one issue, this is an unbelievably excellent recording. The sound quality is perfect, the setlist is awesome, and the band performs flawlessly. Highly recommended. I also highly recommend the Blu Ray version if Flight 666. It is one of the coolest Blu Ray releases ever!
In Febuary 2008, filming began on a documentary about the band Iron Maiden's most adventurous tour ever- The Somewhere Back in Time World Tour. The documentary was titled Flight 666 and released into theaters for one night only (I missed it :(). On June 9th, it was released on DVD and blu-ray, and along with it came a companion piece which was a 2 CD set, featuring all the recorded versions of the songs (plus 2) that made it into the movie.
Well, I'm happy to say that this is the best live album ever! Just Aces High alone is enough to make up for the lackluster Live After Death. This album is truly amazing on every count!
ACES HIGH (Mumbai, India)- After the churchill intro, the guitar intro begins, and then the band rush out on stage and give us one hell of a version of the song. Bruce's voice here is AMAZING!!!!! No struggling, he hits the notes perfectly. And everything just goes well.
TWO MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT (Melbourne, Australia)- This may be even better than the Rock in Rio version. The crowd are loud as usual, the band are really on fire here. Amazing!
REVELATIONS (Sydney, Australia)- HOLY FREAKING CRAP. They slowed down the playing a bit from the LAD version- it's a tad faster than the studio version, but only a tad. And Jan's solo here sounds great!
THE TROOPER (Tokyo, Japan)- Best, most chaotic, and heaviest version of The Trooper yet, plus we get some of Nicko's blistering foot speed!
WASTED YEARS (Monterrey, Mexico)- The third official live recording of this, and the best sounding one yet. H sings a bit during the chorus... he has a very unique voice. Definitely an amazing live version.
THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST (Los Angeles, USA)- Best version of Number of the Beast ever.Read more ›

For folks that are casual fans looking for a good CD that represents Maiden's golden age - this is the best. Mainly because it includes some essential material from Somewhere In Time and 7th Son. Live After Death will always be one of the best, no arguing with Rock In Rio's wild energy and awesome set. To me, this is the essential collection of songs from the first seven albums (aside from the live favorite Fear of the Dark from their 9th album). I feel Bruce (vocals) and Nicko (drums) have both gotten better with time. Bruce does not seem quite as strained as on Maiden England, Live After Death, or Death on the Road. Nicko's tempo and fills have really improved in my opinion. I do think they should have included some Killers material, although Wrathchild and Killers can be heard on other live albums.
For the hardcore fans that have not bought this because all of the songs are on other live albums.....
Buy this. I'm not a fan of Kevin Shirley's production for their studio albums, but this album sound-wise is superior to Rock in Rio and Death on the Road. The drums are phenomenal and the bass cuts much better than Rock in Rio (still not as well as the Martin Birch material). The solos are changed a bit, although I wish Adrian did some of the solos he originally did as opposed to Janick. The crowd mics are great, vocally I like it when Bruce takes a break an lets Steve and / or Adrian carry the song.
I find the versions of Revelations, Heaven Can Wait, Wasted Years and Can I Play With Madness to be superior recordings of the songs. Hallowed Be Thy Name, Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Powerslave are also contenders.Read more ›
