    He’s going to start doing this sweet spin move during “Iron Maiden”, or something.

    Meanwhile Steve joins Metallica and every song suddenly bloats up to 15 minutes.

    Don’t you think I’m a bitcher?
    Don’t you think you’re my bitch, yeah?
    Don’t you think that you ain’t my biiiitch-ahh?!

    Well it would be nice to have a Metallica record where you can actually hear the bass.....

    This. People complain about the lack of bass in ...And Justice for All, but it doesn't sound much different from their other records in that regard IMO.

    I am hearing this fusion of Ain't My Bitch and The Angel and the Gambler in my head and I have to admit it doesn't actually sound half as bad as it should.

    Bass was very audible on the Jason-era albums. And Kill Em All as well.

    Garage Days Re-Revisited also had lots of bass on it, which makes the complete turnaround on And Justice for All even more bizarre. They're definitely a bit better about it now, but the simple fact is Metallica's guitar tones eat up a lot of the frequencies the bass uses so it'll never be as audible as it could be.

    e: Also, let's not forget even Maiden's most recent release (the Live Chapter) is actually very light on the bass compared to practically everything else they've done. I'll be interested to see if this is a new trend or just a one-off resulting from Steve not being involved in the mix.

    I agree about the bass levels on Live Chapter, but I noticed it gets louder around the 4th or 5th song. Compare track 1 or 2 back to back to later tracks and it's quite surprising. I think they dropped the ball somewhere and should have compared the separate songs to one another so that it would sound more consistent.

    He is still the co-producer, so that probably means that it is the sound he likes now.

    The truth is the whole Live Chapter thing felt lazy and hastily done. It's like they put it out just for the sake of putting it out, not because they really wanted to and felt it was needed. A shame, because the tour was great and deserved a better release treatment.

    Wogmidget I rather like the restless nights

    To be fair, there was no point spending much on a DVD that was going to end up on YouTube anyway

    I just noticed that the church-stage is revealed with Revelations.

    Didn't you attend any of the 2018 shows? :confused:

    Tallinn and first night in Helsinki.

    What I meant is that the stage reveal is a revelation, and the first song is Revelations.

    I see what you mean. Yes, it was clear they were revealing things, therefore it's a revelation. :)

    The CD and vinyl packages are fantastic. Nothing lazy or hastily done about that.

    But the production and mixing aren't great, and the video is poorly edited.
     
  19. I disagree. I think it's the best sounding live release of the reunion era. I can actually hear each instrument distinctly. So glad it was not produced by Kevin Shirley. Video is great, too. Opinions and taste..

    Rock in Rio is still the best-sounding and best-looking post-2000 live release. To me, that is.
