I first heard this record (as it was in the days of vinyl) in my school years and i have to say that it sounds just as good today as it did back then.All songs are classics. This is rock at its best.If you are thinking of buying a 'live' album,get this.You won't be disappointed.Biff and the boys rock so get this and......PLAY IT LOUD!!!!

This is the one. After Power And The Glory, this is the one that got me drumming. If you want a great Metal live album or indeed any great LIVE album with no overdubbs etc, buy this. Saxon are still rocking hard, check them out on album after album, even in this electronic musicians New Millenium! Thanks Biff and the lads.

Just ordered this item as was excited to see a rare "picture disc" vinyl so cheap, yet was extremely disappointed to find that although listed as the LP picture disc it arrived as nothing more than an old, worn, scratchy black vinyl record with a poor cover. Some other sellers did list it as non picture disc version yet the seller I bought from had it clearly listed as "LP picture disc". Beware !!!!!!

This live album has the following tracks, not necessarily on this order: Motorcycle man; 747 (strangers in the night); princess of the night; strong arm of the law; heavy metal thunder; 20,000 FT; never surrender; wheels of steel; fire in the sky; machine gun. In my pessoal opinion, the high points of this album are the track "motorcycle man" (with a compass more acelerated than the normal), the energetic performance of the track "heavy metal thunder", and the tracks "never surrender" (with a powerful and precise introduction by the guitarrist Graham Oliver) and "wheels of steel" (with an amazing guitar solo by Graham Oliver, one of the best guitar solos that I heard !). The guitar solo by Paul Quinn on the track "strong arm of the law" is great too ! The other tracks are very good too, with the exception of "machine gun", which was played with high energy, but in my opinion the guitarrists extrapolated in the guitar effects on this song, resulting in a confused performance of this track. But this is a great heavy metal album, showing a piece of what was the NWOBHM in the early 80's. This live recording is obrigatory to every Saxon fan !

Best Live Album Ever 18 April 2002
By Robert T. Kennedy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With all due respect to KISS ``ALIVE!``, Maiden`s ``Live After Death``, Priests ``Uleashed In the East`` and AC/DC`s ``If You Want Blood...``, SAXON`s ``The Eagle Has Landed`` is the best live metal album released during the mid-70`s to late 80`s timeframe. Every track is full of pure energy and Biff Byford`s voice is in perfect form. SAXON are a terrific group of performers and their songwriting is vastly under-rated. How they never caught on in the States amazes me, as they are far more talented than acts that did like The Scorpions and Def Leopard. You can`t go wrong with any SAXON album, but this is the best introduction to a great ``NWOHMB.``

Heavy Metal Thunder!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 22 July 2005
By Bela - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is pure hard rock at it's best. If you never heard

Saxon or 80's british metal start here. This is like a

greatest hits live album. I bought this after seeing

them in concert and I was blown away. I only have

2 other albums by them but this is by far the best...

Every song just kicks *** and I highly recommend it!!!!
A Must Have For Any Serious Heavy Metal Fan! 9 Mar 2004
By Ernesto Catalan Valdez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
SAXON are the unsung heroes of the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM). They came out around the same time as IRON MAIDEN and DEF LEPPARD, but had only a fraction of those bands' success. "The Eagle Has Landed" represents SAXON as an unstoppable Heavy Metal band. What they lacked in catchy commercial hooks, they more than compensated in the heaviness and aggression departments. This is indeed a very intense album with a sound lacking in most "live" albums now-a-days. This has to be simply one of the best live metal albums of all time, along with PRIEST's "Unleashed In The East" and MOTORHEAD's "No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith". It's fast, loud and uncompromisingly brutal. From the opening song, "Motorcycle Man" to the all out Thrash-before-Thrash of "Fire in The Sky/Machine Gun", this album will kick you square in the butt. An essential purchase for ANY fan of Vintage Heavy Metal!
One of the best live metal albums EVER! 10 Jan 2011
By Matthew Watson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you are new to this great classic metal band or you know them well but do not have this CD in your collection, you MUST get it!
By far one of my fave live metal albums; I'd even stack this up along side Judas Priest-Unleashed in the East and that is no small feat! The sound & production of this cd is excellent and the set-list is superb as well. The highlight (for me) is absolutely the last two tracks though; Fire in the Sky/Machine gun to outro is nothing short of blazingly EPIC! The roots of thrash metal (pre-Metallica) is evident on the last two tracks. I bought the vinyl long ago and this will be my second cd copy of this amazing Saxon concert as well; Yes, it IS that kick-A**!!! Buy it now before it goes out of print, [which it may be already!] and the price goes up again, I can assure any fan of heavy metal THIS album IS a must have!
