*This is a review of both the CD and DVD
What is the greatest live performance of all time? Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock? The Who at Leeds? Queen at Live Aid? Pah, not any of those that's for sure. On the 19th of January 2001, at 2 minutes past midnight, Iron Maiden took the stage at the Rock in Rio festival as part of their "Brave New World" album tour, and changed perceptions of live rock albums for good.
The main ingredient to the success of the show is not just the supremely gifted sextuplet of vocalist Bruce Dickinson, bassist Steve Harris, guitarists Dave Murray, Janick Gers, Adrian Smith and drummer Nicko McBrain plus their ability to perform, it's the audience that make the concert so darn special. Hearing 250,000 fanatical Brazilian fans sing along with not only the lyrics but the riffs and solos as well is a sight and sound that's as awe inspiring as it must have been daunting.
The intro to the concert; "Arthur's Farewell" perfectly sets up whats to come. It sends an eerie feel down the back of your spine, half anticipation/excitement building, half spookyness. It's a perfect piece of music to represent Maiden. As soon as it receedes and Adrian Smith launches into the opening riff of "The Wicker Man", you know you're in for something incredibly special.
The first three songs: "The Wicker Man", "Ghost of the Navigator" and "Brave New World" fantastically show why Iron Maiden are one of the best if not THE best live band on the planet. The riffs and solos are instantly memorable, the bass and drums are played perfectly and the crowd are so fired up by it they add another musical layer to the songs. Bruce Dickinson's singing and his ability as a showman leaves you in a trance, he's that good.

This is the an album everyone must hear. It's that simple. There's absolutely no bad tracks on it. You can feel the emotion pouring out of the crowd all the time. Even if you don't like Maiden, this album is great because you get to hear what 1/4 million singing metal fans sounds like.
After a rather spooky intro the album starts with a mind blowing rendition of Wicker Man, i still get chills down my back when I put this track on. The roar is unreal. You really do feel like you're there in the mosh pit, screaming your lungs out too. It's nearly a religious experience.
My personal highlights are Wicker Man, Ghost of the Navigator, The Trooper, Fear of the Dark, and, of course, Run to the Hills. RttH especially when the crowds sings along, the loudest of the entire CD.
If you care about metal at all, buy this CD.

In a time where we look to TV shows and record producers to tell us what is 'good music', you can be forgiven for wondering what happened to real musicians, and raw power in music.
With "Rock in Rio" Iron Maiden launch their first live album with their "new" lineup, and three guitar onslaught, and you can really feel the raw energy, sweat and blood coming out of your speakers. Songs that used to sound rather empty live, due to the absence of a rythm guitar during harmonies/solos are now filled, and the crunching riffs on tracks such as Wrathchild have even more energy.
Bruce is on form, and his enthusiasm is infectious, drawing energy from the crowd and really whipping them up in a frenzy. While the most exciting thing that groups such as Westlife do is stand up to elicit screams from the crowd, you can imagine Bruce bouncing around all over the place screaming!
My only criticism of the album is the quality of the first Maiden Track "The Wicker Man". The mix is such that the noise of the crowd becomes distorted, and as a result so do the band. However, this does add to the "live" feel for anyone who has experienced the group live, as your ears adjust from the relative silence of waiting for the band to come on stage to the explosion of the first song. After this, the mix settles down and the rest of the album is much clearer.
There is a lot of material from the Brave New World album, including the first three tracks, and there are notable absences of "classic" maiden tracks such as "Aces High" and "Can I play with Madness?" but these are available on previous live albums, and it is refreshing to hear the new material live. An added bonus is to hear Bruce singing "The Sign of the Cross" and "The Clansman"...

Maiden release another live album, the first to feature the full triple-guitar line up of Gers, Smith and Murray. It also serves to confirm that Maiden were not Maiden without Bruce. Recorded at the Rock in Rio festival in 2001, this album rocks from start to finish, featuring a majority of songs from the Brave New World opus, along with some of the obligatory classic material from earlier years.
You can tell that the band are really feeding off the manic Brazilian audience, the energy almost bursts from the speakers. Having said that, for the most part the quality of recording is amazing, but is occasionally let down by glitches (mainly sound levels going a bit wonky) which as this was a one-off concert is excusable.
As usual, most of Bruce's crowd interactions have been removed, which is often a shame as some are darned funny, but some have been left to make you feel at least some connection with the crowd.
As good as Donington 1992, miles better than the Real Live/Dead offerings, but still not quite reaching the heady heights of the seminal live Maiden album, Live After Death. Maiden fans will automatically buy this. Non- fans will avoid like a plague, but who cares. DVD version coming out soon, so you may want to hold off for the full audio/visual spectacular.
