Set the world afire!,
This review is from: That One Night: Live In Buenos Aires [DVD]  (DVD)
Megadeth live in Argentina in 2005 in front of a huge crowd of rabid metal fans. Witnessing this live document, it is no wonder why so many artists choose to record their live products in South America - the manic audience is deafeningly loud, and even sings along some of the guitar riffs!
While the authenticity of the band's more recent live offerings has been questioned by many, this appears to be 100% live. The band is in fine form, especially main man Dave Mustaine himself, and the songs are delivered sharply yet enthusiastically.
The setlist is a nearly all-covering trip through Megadeth's back catalogue, with a couple of surprise numbers thrown in, including "Set The World Afire" and even one from the much-maligned "Risk," "I'll Be There." Three songs are included from the then-latest studio release (the comeback album "The System Has Failed"), although they had played more from that record on other gigs of the tour.
Complaints? Well, the disc features practically no extras, with only an alternative version of "Symphony Of Destruction" serving as bonus material And while the playing is flawless in itself, you can't help but feel that this is more like "Dave and the boys" rather than a genuine band effort, given that apart from Mustaine himself, none of the musicians in the line-up had appeared on any Megadeth album before. Even long-time serving bassist David Ellefson was absent at the time.
Still, the energy level of the concert is high enough, and the atmosphere can be felt even on the other side of the screen. Despite the lack of extras, the live show itself makes this release highly recommended.
