Product Description

In the live arena heavy metal can be implausibly powerful; it can rattle teeth from gums, set ears ringing like the clappers of doom and, when concocted by the gentlemen of Iron Maiden, virtually fracture your skull. Live After Death, meanwhile (a packed double disc set recorded during the band's extensive World Slavery jaunt of 1984 and 1985), is the awesome, irrefutable proof. Of course, expertly hewn slabs of solid rock carefully concocted in recording studios are all very well. But "The Number Of The Beast" and "Run To The Hills" were simply made to be blasted through 152,000 watts of PA system by five young men with undiluted testosterone pulsing through their bulging, whiplash veins. Bruce Dickinson's astounding lung capacity is frankly terrifying at times--he's certainly not a man you'd ever want to meet in a blow football tournament--while the band are virtually aflame. --Ian Fortnam

5.0 out of 5 stars The best live album in the world ever! 5 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I used to think the best live album ever was Thin Lizzy's 'Live and Dangerous', but then I heard this one. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a mosher by any stretch of the imagination. I love music from all walks of life, but this one just totally rocks dude!
Even if you're not a fan of Maiden you can't help but admire the energy and excitement of this album. The crowd clearly loves them, the riffs are fast, furious and fired at you from all angles. Bruce Dickinsons vocals are loud and powerful, and he knows how to please. The tracks show a great deal of variety, inspiration and musical virtuosity.
I've owned several versions of this album over the last few years, on tape, vinyl, CD and (just bought) enhanced CD. It's stayed with me throughout my life, one I keep coming back and back to, and always enjoying. If there's any album that's ever been in my collection the longest, in all formats , played the most (to the point of destruction!) and still sounds fresh and alive, this is it.
I can't recommend it enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars *THE* definitive live metal album 26 May 2000
Format:Audio CD
Maiden were at their peak around this time - and the peak of Maiden's peak is the peak of British Metal! Furthermore, the peak of British metal is the peak of live albums. This is simply outstanding. I bought first the tape, then the CD, then the Video! The Smith/Murray partnership is never stronger, and I can safely say I have never seen (or heard) a band play better live than in the studio moreso than Maiden in this album. I own many live albums from many bands - yet this is the only one that makes an appearance for more than nostalgic purposes. Please buy it - if for no reason other than to support the best band to come out of Britain ever!

This album has most definately got to be the best Heavy Metal album from the 80's. The atmosphere of the live performance is incredable, especially on 'Running Free', where the audience paticipate. Every single song on the album is played perfectly and the band play skillfully through the whole set, enjoying themselves as much as the crowd. The superb end track 'Phantom of the Opera', is my personal favourite taken from Maiden's exellent debut album. The record has tracks from all the Maiden albums up until 'Powerslave' which is also a great album. And that is only the 'CD player' side of things because you are given a special multimedia section which includes live videos of the performance. It is a very good idea to provide multimedea sections on the CD because it is good to see the live footage. Overall I think this album deserves it's 5 stars without a doubt and if you were only to buy one Maiden album, what could I say?

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick Reviews! 4 Nov 2010
By carlosnightman VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Maiden's first live album was recorded during the World Slavery Tour, released at their 80s peak, and cemented both their metal credibility and their ability to perform live just as well as they can in the studio. There is no trickery here, all we have is pure, raw talent and an ability to blow the audience apart gained only by years on the road. Riggsy gives us another classic album cover packed with detail and in-jokes. With it's brewing introduction, frenetic playing, and audience interaction this is rightly regarded as one of the best live releases ever.

`Intro'. The famous Churchill speech is probably Maiden's most well known live opener and one which rouses and inspires the crowd into a palpable frenzy.

`Aces High' merges perfectly with Churchill's Speech and takes off like a rabbit up your trouser leg. Long Beach California erupts as they get a massive slice of British metal and beckon it to tear their bronzed faces off. Bruce and the boys oblige (although some of the vocals miss the mark here quite comically)and give a storming first track.

`2 Minutes To Midnight' opens with some Bruce banter, stirring the crowd to further madness.

`The Trooper' keeps the crowd bouncing and we get some interesting harmonies in the `chorus' and ends with some fun from a different Bruce which the American crowd most definitely did not `get'.

`Revelations' is introduced as a song about religion, the crowd is asked to put their flippers in the air, and Bruce improvises throughout. Here they sound like they are in their prime and having great fun.

`Flight Of Icarus' continues the Piece Of Mind section and the light atmosphere with lots of backing vocals and Bruce changing parts, throwing in extra tics and blips.

5.0 out of 5 stars C'mon lemme hear you! THIS ALBUM ROCKS! 5 Feb 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
OK it may be an early best of (most live albums are), but what an amazing CD. This was recorded in 1985 but thanks to the remasters the sound quality remains good. However, this album is only really beneficial if you're a newcomer to the band. If you are, then be prepared to listen to one of the finest CDs money can buy. Loads of reviews on Amazon are too generous, but this is well worth the five stars. The "epic" songs (eg Hallowed Be Thy Name, Children of the Damned) are the obvious standout tracks. But there are other gems on here - for example,"Revelations", from 1983's "Piece Of Mind" - a welcome breather from the thrashy sonic assault. Fantastic song. "22 Acacia Avenue" is class too.
The best Maiden album is a matter of opinion. Most say that it is "Number of the Beast" from 1982 - this is probably because it contains their two best songs, similar to Metallica's "Master Of Puppets" - the latter has some of their best songs on it but the other albums often get overlooked. And this is the case with Maiden's albums from the early 1980s (unquestionably their best period) - "Piece Of Mind" material is fairly well represented here (I think this is their best album) but "Iron Maiden", their 1980 debut, is criminally underrepresented. "Killers" only has "Wrathchild" here - understandably; "Killers" is poor by Maiden's standards. "Powerslave" material is in abundance here - obviously; this was the tour in support of that album.
So to Maiden newies? Start with "Best of the Beast", then "Live After Death", then work backwards from "Powerslave" to "Iron Maiden".
