1 stars Look, I love Maiden as much as the next guy. The band plays and sounds absolutely fantastic here and are way more full of energy than anyone at their age rightly ought to be.

But really, let's get down to it... I don't know how on earth anyone can NOT notice how god-awful the editing on this dvd is. It's dizzying, disorienting and headache inducing. There isn't a single shot that lasts more than a second or two and I'm NOT exaggerating at all. It's unforgivable.

This, unfortunately, seems to be a common thing plaguing a lot of dvds coming out these days. I'm not sure why folks choose this editing style; maybe they're trying to make it "exciting" or reflect the intenseness of the music or something, hell if I know, but the shots change at such a lightning-quick pace that you can never really tell what's going on. There are better ways to do it. When I buy music dvds, i want to see the band actually *play*, that's exciting enough for me - wacky camera angles be damned (I'm looking at you, Yes dvds).

Check out some clips on youtube to see what I'm talking about before spending your money. if that's your thing, well, whatever, man. It doesn't jive with me.

I'd just stick with the CD release.
