  • I’ve read the other reviews on this 2CD package, and I’d have to agree with most of the comments.Janick Gers replaces Adrian Smith on guitar, and it’s like having two Dave Murray’s in the band. I preferred the melodious sounds of Adrian Smith and the pummeling riffs of Dave Murray together, instead of two guitarists playing the same style. Janick’s guitar solo’s are markedly different from those of Adrian Smith, and that can take long time Iron Maiden fans a little getting used to on the older songs. But Gers does play well on Maiden’s newer material, to his credit.The production of these discs are relatively weak, and Bruce’s singing isn’t at his best. This collection of live tunes offers Prowler, Transylvania, Where Eagles Dare, and Remember Tomorrow, that are not on the other live Iron Maiden releases. Beyond that, this collection doesn’t really offer anything new to Maiden fans.LIVE AT DONNINGTON is a better live recording then A REAL LIVE DEAD ONE, and DONNIGTON is almost a mirror recording of the second disc of A REAL DEAD ONE. Also, LIVE AFTER DEATH has most of the same songs as does disc 1 of A REAL LIVE DEAD ONE, and LIVE AFTER DEATH also sounds better then A REAL DEAD ONE.Buy A REAL LIVE DEAD ONE if you’re a die-hard wanting to complete your Iron Maiden catalog, but these metal legends have better offerings out there then this. If you’re new to Iron Maiden, begin with Piece Of Mind and Powerslave.
