One of the best live recordings of a band ever. The fact that this album was recorded during Iron Maiden's prime in the "World Slavery Tour" adds to its mystique. If there is one live album that is worth buying, despite musical taste it should be this one.
One of the best live albums of all time. The band is on top form at Long Beach Arena and their energetic and furious performance never fails to amaze. Live versions of 'Aces High', 'The Trooper', 'Rime of the Ancient Mariner', 'Powerslave', 'The Number of the Beast' and the best metal song 'Hallowed Be Thy Name' an essential live album.
This live album's raw and high-energetic sound and feel is just incredible, and unlike most other live albums made. Just listen to Bruce Dickinson howl on Hallowed Be Thy Name, Steve Harris galopping basslines throughout, and the guitar-dualism that was Smith & Murray. Pure metal at it's best!
"Live After Death" was and still is one of the best live recordings of one of the best metal bands to ever grace this earth. It's near perfect except for the visual elemnt spplied with the DVD version makes it a lot more real. Fantastic none the less.
