OK but not their best,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maiden England '88 [DVD]  (DVD)
It is great to have this concert as part of the collection and it does contain some songs live that are rare. Nevertheless it is for me very clear, most especially shown by the voice of Bruce that he was (they were) extremely tired, as it is also stated in the documentary, because of the years of studio/touring/studio/touring. I like much more the way they play their concerts today - they only tour so much that Bruce can keep his amazing voice at a very high standard and the three guitars give an uncomparably full and deep sound which is absolutely mindblowingly fantastic. The tiredness makes this concert for me one that will not be listened to or watched all too often. I advise "beginners" to rather buy Rock in Rio or Flight 666, maybe En Vivo to hear what these guys are capable of live. As for the sound quality, well it's again not as good as on the above mentioned records and the picture quality... well it was filmed on video tape in '88 so the quality reflects that. I consider the documentaries as bonuses to this release and so I am quite happy with them.
To summarise, a good buy for your collection but if this would be "the" concert from Maiden for you I would advise you to go for something else.
