lack of love for Live After Death
The thing is LAD has something special. When you break down into performance, sound, setlist, it might not win anything, for me but it is still kind of a best live album Maiden did just based on the feel.
My absolute favourite 80s stuff is '83 and '86-88. So for me, today as opposed to twenty years ago, the setlist is quite boring. Today the side four makes the record.
Also what you said about digital kids. I might also yawn at someone bashing on LAD. Keep in mind that we see Maiden as this awesome live band that only got better with time. From that perspective, saying "this true live band that's been killing the sets night after night for 45 years, made their ultimate live release 10 years into the career". Doesn't sound quite right you know?
