4 stars First thing, on this show, Iron Maiden gave an incredible performance and gave it in front of one of the best audiences of all the Dance of Death tour. The set list is interesting, in includes the best song of Dance of Death (except maybe Montsegur) plus a bunch of classics. In overall, this is a pretty good live album but not as good as the Rock in Rio one. If you don't know their music, never buy this to get in it because you will be disapointed.

4 stars There's a lot of energy on this live album. All the best tunes from Dance of Death are on this one. Wrathchild and The Trooper are some of the best versions of the songs since the 80's. Maiden definitly revived themselves quite well since they got back together. The other highlights are the DOD tracks, so powerful and with a lot of energy. The rest are good overall, although there are better versions of Hallowed Be Thy Name (cant top the studio version IMO), Fear of the Dark (A Real Live Dead One), and The Number of the Beast (Live After Death)

the only other complaint is lack of songs from Powerslave and Somewhere in Time. Also, they couldve picked a better Seventh Son track, even though Can I Play With Madness was a big hit. Oh well.

An exciting live album. The band sounds like theyre in their 20s again. The guitar tone is also very heavy and the drums are really technical and have great rythym. Overall, a good live album to add to your collection. But get the other ones as they are a little better, at least in terms of setlist.

3 stars Iron Maiden has released a lot of live albums. Maybe too many.

The things that makes this live album worthwhile and a good purchase is the new stuff from Dance Of Death and the post Seventh Son albums. The live renditions of the songs from Dance Of Death just prove how good that album is. In particular the title track and Paschendale. Both of them must now be regarded as Iron Maiden classics. But Iron Maiden is also in full flow on the older songs. The Trooper is delivered with full conviction. A big minus is the omission of songs from my favorite Iron Maiden album (Powerslave) and Somewhere In Time. The inclusion of Can I Play With Madness is also dubious. Besides of that, this live album is a much overlooked gemstone in Iron Maiden's armory. It is not as good as the Rock In Rio album, but it still runs it close. The sound is strangely enough not particular good. Which is strange.

3.75 stars and a joy to behold.
