5.0 out of 5 stars scorching!!!!!!!!!!!! 14 Dec 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
the title is an understatement Queen are so much more than on fire here. if you've seen the video or dvd you'll know what i mean. but even just listening to this concert, which comes almost exactly half way between the formation of the band (1971) and the sad passing of Freddie (1991). only three years after live killers (an amazing live album) and the astounding Wembley '86 some might have thought this release almost pointless. not so. the set list is different enough to seperate itself from it's predecessors (note: avoid the heavily edited live magic at all costs unless you wish to hear an example of very severe editing!) with tracks from The Game including play the game and dragon attack. also present is the mandatory 'new' songs such as 'staying power' and 'back chat' which whilst paling into insignificance with the likes of bohemian rhapsody and under pressure are very much and improvement on the very dry sound they recieve on their mother album Hot SPace. freddie's banter in some of the best yet though not quite reaching the 'they're talking from here!' exchange from wembley is evidence still of freddie as arguably the greatest showman to have graced a stage. all in all a great adition to the ever growing 'live' catalogue.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Queen live album yet 4 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've just read the review of this CD written by cliffcashfan and can only wonder what planet he's living on and what album he's writing about. He states that Queen were the greatest live band ever - which arguably they were - but then goes on to incorrectly state that they've "never released a live album to prove it".
This is in fact the FOURTH Queen live album to be released on CD, following on from 'Live Killers', 'Live Magic" and 'Live At Wembley'. And in my opinion this is the best one yet, for a number of reasons:
Firstly, the sound is in fact terrific. It's crystal clear and nicely balanced.
Secondly the interesting set list: Unlike the 'Live At Wembley' set, which is basically just a ho-hum live package of Queen's greatest hits aimed at the music-buying masses and casual fans (and the less said about the rush-released, sub-standard 'Live Magic' the better) , this 1982 set will be of far more interest to the hardcore Queen fan, containing as it does performances of some lesser-known Queen songs, including some from the controversial and at the time brand-new 'Hot Space' album that were only ever performed on that tour and were also not chart hits - these being 'Staying Power', 'Action This Day' and 'Back Chat'. The 'Hot Space' album was widely panned at the time and Queen came in for some heavy flack for supposedly "betraying" their rock fan base by releasing a heavily funk-tinged album. I always though that this was very unfair as they were only doing what many other bands do in experimenting with a new sound, and in fact when performed live, these songs were given a much heavier, harder edge that really worked well.
Thirdly, I actually saw Queen live in Leeds on 29th May 1982 - about a week before their concert at Milton Keynes which is featured on this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Live Killers 1 Nov 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having seen televised footage of this concert, and been struck by the vitality and power of the performance, I was thrilled that it would be finally released as a CD and DVD.
On this CD you will hear Queen at their peak as live performers. The execution is less polished than on Live Killers, but the sheer power of the renditions is overwhelming, and brings the listener closer to the experience of being at a Queen concert. The selection of songs is better too, with a raucous Fat Bottomed Girls, and a sensitive rendition of Save Me, being highlights.
Most of the mistakes have been left in (some interesting chord changes on the Now I'm Here intro for example), and I think this only adds to the listener's involvement.
The power and spontaneous feel to the performances, together with Freddie Mercury's vocal delivery, stand in stark contrast to the 1986 Wembley offerings, which now sound even more ponderous by comparison.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does it get better? 25 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
This Milton Keynes performance was the very best live gig by one of the greatest ever live rock bands at the pinnacle of their career. Being there was one of the very few genuine life-changing events of my life. This DVD captures - oh, I'd say - 10% of the atmosphere of the event (which is pretty darned good for a DVD!) and I still can't watch it without the hairs standing up all down my neck! Nostagia? Probably. Faithful recording of music legends showing us all how it's done? More than likely. The best music DVD money can buy? Oh yes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most 'Live' sounding of all their live albums 7 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
I've had 'Live Killers' for years, and was at one of the 2 gigs recorded for 'Live at Wembley', and loved them both, so I wasn't sure what I was going to make of this one.

'Live Killers' is raucous rock music, and maybe a little dijointed here and there; 'Live at Wembley' really captured the stadium feel well, but has a really odd sound in places that doesn't quite give it the feel of a live gig. This one though - it feels much more live, warts and all! They were truly on fire this night, and all 4 of them put in sterling performances.

The thing that might put people off just looking at the track list is the fact that some of it is from the 'Hot Space' period, but the songs from that album are very different here, and so much better live.

'Live Killers' and 'Live at Wembley' are great representations of what Queen were like live at those two times in their history, and this one sits perfectly between those two.

All we need now is for their record label to release some earlier 70s material for completeness. For now though, I'm very happy with this release!
