Maiden has always been known as one of the absolute best live acts
around! And this live recording from Westfalenhalle in
familiar fashion we are served one classic Iron Maiden song after
another combined nicely with no less than 6 songs from their latest
album "Dance of Death", which I think is 2 or 3 songs too
much! But hats off to Iron Maiden for not during as everyone expects...
even though it means that a few classics is left out of the set like
"Two Minutes to Midnight", "Running Free" or
"Sanctuary", but for some strange reason they've picked
"Can I Play with Madness" up again.
is by no means a bad Iron Maiden live documentary - it's actually a
very good recording, which once more shows a brilliant Bruce Dickinson,
who sings like a young God. The rhythm section is as tight as ever,
and the triple guitar attack creates a wall of sound, that leaves
nothing to be desired for. As mentioned before I don't think the set
list is a fortunate as it could have been, and one might wonder if now
is the time for (yet) another Iron Maiden live album?
Well - no one forces you to buy this album, right? But
a true Iron Maiden fan need not to worry, this is as solid as it gets!
