Without a doubt a tremendes live cd and it kicks ass BUT Im happy to have the old leather gremlin Rob behind the screaming steel now. LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEW RECORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From: Scandinavia Date: September 3, 2003 at 12:17
Don't believe him...The sound is nowhere near their previous live releases but Motley just loves everything that's live...No filter! Gotcha dude...Haha..Seriously, A decent release but get the classics instead...

From: Fat Freddy Date: December 17, 2003 at 15:44
I dunno about this one... Ripper sounds great, but the band has apparently tuned their instruments down to match the "brutal" tone of the "Jugulator" material, so a lot of the oldies don't really sound quite right, off key if you know what I mean. The acoustic version of "Diamonds And Rust" shows what a great singer Owens really is when he's not aping Halford though.

From: YubileY Date: January 5, 2004 at 19:28
I agree with Fat Freddy

Agree with Fat Freddy here exactly. The classics just sound weird with the down tuning of the guitars. 8/10

From: Metal T Date: November 11, 2004 at 17:37
The 2 Double live albums (this and Live In London) that JP released with Ripper Owens' on vocals sound exceptional.No,he's not Halford' (but,again who is? ) "98'Live Meltdown" is solid,and seeing JP with "Owens" live' was a treat.He did nothing to tarnish JP's legacy,he was merely a great replacement while Rob' was away.---Check out the scream Ripper' does on "Desert Plains" on the "Live In London" disc--D*mn Killer !

I've been told this live cd is good. But I would prefer Rob's voice on it. Nothing against Tim, he is a good singer. But Rob is THE singer of Judas Priest. Just like when Motley Crue and Iron Maiden replaced their singers...the replacements are not always good for the bands.

First and only live record with Tim "Ripper" Owens on vocals...to be honest he did quite a more than a decent job while in JP...some songs from JP's stuff with Ripper mixed with all time classics...93/100

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 11, 2014 at 19:54
Sorry there was after another live record with Ripper as well..."Live in London"

From: Metaldad69 Date: January 16, 2021 at 9:07
This has become my all time favorite Live Album as well as Double Live Annihilation by Annihilator. I still love all my older not so live albums from UFO, Priest, Rainbow and so forth.
