Back in time...,
This review is from: Maiden England '88 (Audio CD)
Pure Maiden gold! I remember watching the VHS video to this all those years back. The audio quality is top and the setlist is brilliant. Some will say this is just another Iron Maiden live release and that we have too many already, I don't agree. If you don't want it then just don't buy it. I wish more bands would release live material as it captures a moment in time and in 1988 at the NEC in Birmingham we have here a great look back to how Maiden sounded and the songs played. On the back of Seventh Son of a Seventh Son Iron Maiden had the perfect album to deliver a fantastic show, and they did just that. I had to wait 2 years after this to see them for the first time live in Southampton in 1990. Sadly by this time Adrian Smith had departed and the sound changed. Still a great show but Maiden England 88 is something very special. This band are still going strong and are currently touring a similar setlist to this! Buy with confidence as everything this band releases is top drawer.
Up the irons!

Totally agree, this is already one of my favourite live albums and easily stands alongside Live After Death, the atmosphere and performance is amazing. Essential listening.
