Another great live document,
This review is from: En Vivo! (Audio CD)
Where the Rock In Rio CD has a nice thick sound, this album sounds a bit mid-range and cluttered and in some places Steve's bass is not its usual clanky self. The opening riff in the Wicker Man sounds a bit strange too. These minor quibbles aside, this is still a great live album featuring the complete Final Frontier tour setlist. Eldorado sounds tremendous as do the other new album live tracks. I've still to sit down and watch the DVD so that will be for another review.
I agree with others that it's hard to top the Live After Death performance but at least these newer live albums provide the full gig. Given the timing constraints of vinyl, the remastered Live After Death CD in 1998 attempted to give an insight into a standard set list from the World Slavery Tour by offering a second disc of material. This would have been great if it had been produced properly - there is a guitar track missing throughout the extra the songs (possibly Adrian's)that makes the songs unlistenable, unless of course you want to grab your guitar and use as a 'play along with Maiden':>)
Roll on the Maiden England 2012/13 Tour and let's hope it comes to UK arenas and not just one stop-off in a muddy field.
