This review is from: Live After Death [DVD]  (DVD)
This video was made a long time ago. Despite the 20yo sound and production technology this DVD (to me) represents all that was great about metal and rock at this time. I saw Maiden as a 17 year old on this tour and was absolutely blown away by the power of the show. Watching the DVD many years later brought it all back in vivid memory. To me, this WAS Maiden at their best, and it was British Metal at its best also. Dickinson entertains with his antics, Murray/Smith and Harris are masters of their art and Brain is a man posessed.
As for the production quality - it's excellent given that the age of the production, and I would ignore the nancy comments of people who know nothing of the pre-digital perfect age. The entire show is flawed, and brilliant.
At the show I was smashed and about 500ft away, so the DVD's a massive improvement.
Buy it, get drunk, shut the wife in the cupboard, drink a bit more, then put in the DVD, go all the way to 11 and enjoy.
