3 stars The rating of this live sets depends highly on the question whether you got the preceeding studio albums or not. If you own them, you don't need Live after Death, because the live versions are well nigh identical to the studio performances (except for Running Free which is prolonged due to audience participation). So by progarchives definition this would be two stars. On the other hand, if you need a kind of Best of Iron Maiden 1980-84 you can't go wrong with this one (I miss the song Killers, though). Under this circumstance this album is a sure four stars. Considering this and the fact that the band really could have put more variations in their live performance (just think of how much some of the versions of Deep Purples Made in Japan differed from the studio stuff) I think 3 stars are a fair rating.
