I know this is revered among metalheads as THE live album, but I gotta say, it's not one of my favorites. The drums seem to be buried in the mix, as they often are on early Maiden albums, the guitars are a bit too loud and blurry, and Bruce is all over the place with his voice. Several songs seem rather rushed. And, like the kid who bitches about school food and there not being enough of it, I don't like that the last side of the original double-album is left off. But this was just reissued ...

... yet again, in jewel-case and vinyl-replica form, with the original track list restored. I myself have the '95 reissue, and I gotta say, the bonus version of "murders in the Rue Morgue" is one of the best songs on it, along with the other Fizz Picks "Churchill's Speech/Aces High," "2 Minutes to Midnight," "The Trooper," and "Revelations" (note the guy hollering "MOTHERFUCKERRRR!" at the end.

From: GABO Date: June 6, 2004 at 22:54
One of the greatest live metal albums of all time, along with Judas Priestīs Unleashed in the east. Another amazing album by the powefull beast. 9.5/10

From: Shannon Date: June 19, 2004 at 20:35
I remember watching this show with friends when it aired live on MTV back in '85 and to this day I think it is one of the best live metal performances ever!! The new remastered version of the CD includes the rest of the songs that were on "side 4" of the vinyl & cassette, so that was a big plus!! Also, incredible artwork from Mr. Riggs I must say!!

From: Big Papa K Date: July 1, 2004 at 17:42
Capturing a band at their peak. The songs sound great live and Bruce Dickinson makes the Di'Anno songs his own. One of the best live albums ever. 9/10

Classic live Maiden album and its first with Bruce Dickinson on board i believe...just get this piece of heavy metal culture please!!!...100/100

This version is the Castle reissue from the mid-'90's. Disc One is the original CD issue, which contains the first three sides of the double-vinyl (and cassette!) version, with a shortened version of "Running Free." The bonus disc is just some B-sides (and "Murders In The Rue Morgue" kicks ass!). The most recent reissue restores the original tracklisting, with Disc Two being side four of the vinyl, with "22 Acacia Avenue," "Children Of The Damned," "Die With Your Boots On," and two other songs that escape me right offhand. These songs were not fromm the same show(s) as the first three sides.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 29, 2013 at 21:23
So yeah, this is a classic live album. The band's playing is flawless and fiery throughout, with kicked-up tempos and a wild crowd. My only beef is with Bruce, who's alll over the place vocally, underlining the un-catchiness of some of the band's songs. But who can sit still throughChurchill's "we will fight" speech, followed by "Aces High" and "2 Minutes To Midnight?" Pure live power!
