"I was somewhat disapointed in this release. Not that it is bad but I was expecting something a whole lot better. I guess there is only one thing I can blame this on, and it is pretty obvious: these songs were taken from the "Turbo" tour. That should say it all. Turbo was definetly the bands worst release. The production is similar to that of Turbo which brings it down also.Turbo I believed was made by computer generated music(so was Defenders Of The Faith)and that made the music like...STINK.Well here is what I think of each individual song:1.Out In The Cold-Disgraceful intro number. As soon as I started to hear this I was getting ready to go back inside the music store and get my money back. It's terrible2.Heading Out To The Highway-Better follow-up song. I thought it was really good although the origional surfaced on "Point Of Entry" was much better due to better production. But it ain't bad3.Metal Gods-I truely really like this song. But the attack of the killer production strikes again and tears this song to bits.4.Breaking The Law-This is truely the 1st song where I would say it is better than the origional. It is more fast paced and has falsetto in it which I think was for the better. Trust me the version on "British Steel" kind of blows but this one is really pretty good5.Love Bites-Another good song. Sounds pretty much like the version on "Defenders Of The Faith" though. All in all though its good6.Some Heads Are Gonna Roll-I never really thought much of this song, but its still not all that bad.7.The Sentinel-Dynamite song. It's intro just blows my mind away. Great selection8.Private Property-This is the point where the album starts to go downhill. I honestly did not like this one. I just like Stinks9.Rock You Around The World-This song is not bad. It has a heavy guitar intro and is fast paced so I give it at least some respect10.Electric Eye-Good song. Was affected a little by the production though, but I love this song so It will do. Dose include "The Hellion" intro11.Turbo Lover-This is the one song off of "Turbo" that is somewhat decent. It's slow and dramatic and I think it dose deserve some attention. So all in all its a pretty good song.12.Freewheel Burning-Here we come to the best part of the CD. With the motorcycle at the beginning this song is made to be one of the best live recording's I have ever heard. It is faster also which I think is for the better. Definetly listen to this one if any13.Parental Guidance-Bad song. No further comments14.Living After Midnight-This really makes up for the disaster of "Parental Guidance". This song is still strong and I still love it15.You've Got Another Thing Coming-Great Outro number. It was expanded by about 3 minutes which I think is even better. So its a good live recordingSo all in all its an OK album, although it could have been a whole lot better. But if you see it marked down about 10 dollars go ahead and buy it."
