I’m not a fan of live albums for some reason and I probably have less than 50 in my collection. I’ll check it out on Apple Music but I won’t purchase it.

What do you think? I dig the southern rock vibe.

I was getting more of a Mexican flair from it myself.

I dig it. I love the video. Really reminds of that totally mad 1980s Heavy Metal movie.

I saw a comment yesterday that made me laugh. They said it sounds like Maiden trying to work out Steve Earle’s Copperhead Road. It’s different for them but it still sounds like Maiden.

I like it. My only problem is with the YouTube version Bruce's vocals get buried. There's another new track tucked away in a quiet corner of YT where exactly the same happens.

Sadly Maiden just haven’t been that great in the mix department since Martin Birch stopped producing them.

This is a YouTube thing. Kevin Shirley is every inch as good as Birch.

I wouldn’t agree, it’s a problem I have with their CDs as well. Most of their post-Fear of the Dark just don’t sound that great to me, although some are definitely worse than others.

Bruce sounds like Myles Kennedy on that!

Another good song. Strange that it seems to have slipped out under the radar given the fanfare around “The Writing on the Wall”.

Also, if that’s the album cover I’m a bit disappointed it’s not samurai-themed like the video teased.
