Dance Of Death
Dance Of Death

Price: £7.50

5.0 out of 5 stars very very good, 10 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dance Of Death (Audio CD)
A very worthwhile album that really works for me. IMHO it is important to be able to listen through an album and "get it" and this really works here. Not as great as "Fear of the Dark" and not even close to "Number of the Beast" but still extremely nice.

The CD that got me into Metal but also got me away from Metallica. I still like it but it is by far not the quality Metal album it is said to be.

The live performance here is not the best I have heard from Iron Maiden but you still get goose pimples sometimes and the sound quality is way better than other recordings of live concerts.

4.0 out of 5 stars mature, 10 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For me this is Manowars most mature and best album yet (by far). The mastering is way (I mean really in a BIG way) better than all their previous CD's (where the high frequencies tend to distort even on very high quality gear or Stax HPs), the album works for the first time as a whole, rounded, complete and creative work you can really listen to in one go-through. I don't get the criticism they received for this from a lot of fans. It shows they are really developing but still staying true to their very unique, one-off sound. Maybe it's because I am NO "fan"... :-/
More like this please!

Do not decide to buy this or not because of my review. I have had some grief with Manowar CD's because the higher frequencies tend to distort (believe me, it's not my setup). Warriors of the World is way better in every aspect. I recognize this album for it's unique sound and special "aura" which is hard to find in Metal (if at all). As an album (listening from start to finish, not doing anything else while listening) it just doesn't really work for me.

Not my cup of tea. I like some aspects of their unique sound but most of this CD is to "harsh" for me and it doesn't really work as an album. The mastering is terrible, there's alot of distortion in higher frequencies (maybe because it had to be as loud as possible on CD?).

5.0 out of 5 stars very very nice, 10 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb performance, good sound quality. It's a live recording so you get some minor background noises, but the performance and mastering make up for it in a big way. If you're a fan of "sound stage" where you can literally "feel" the room (Teatro Municipale Romolo Valli, Reggio Emilia) this is one for you. Is Abbado getting better and better?

5.0 out of 5 stars nice collection, exceptional value, 9 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Want all the recordings of Karajan & Mutter on DG? Here you go!
Everything in this set has been published before (multiple times)! If you haven't got any (what?) or only some of these recordings (forgivable) you can't go wrong here: you get a lot for your money. Karajan & Mutter on DG? What's not to like?
The packaging is not "top notch" but acceptable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal recording, 9 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A lot has been said about this 80ies cycle of Karajan. I actually prefer it to the '64 cycle and very strongly prefer it over Toscanini's (mono, tape hiss, distortion; superb performance) recording. Sound quality is so good you have to fall in love with this set, there is alot of value here! Karajan has not only been a master conducter but he really knew about the importance of perfect recording and mastering and his sound engineer Günter Hermanns is in a league of his own. This really shows here: Sound stage, clarity, range everything is just right. One of the best masters I have ever heard! Perry (sensational!), Baltsa, Cole, van Dam, Wiener Singverein & Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra deliver a stunning display of extraordinary talent.
