En Vivo! (EMI)
Another Iron Maiden tour, another Iron Maiden live album. Any Maiden fan worth his or her faded Eddie T-shirt knew to expect this live offering from the British metal legends since that's been their routine over the last decade: release studio album, tour, release live album and repeat (sometimes skipping the studio album in the equation).
The band's 10th live album is a 17-track double-disc set from the Final Frontier tour recorded in front of a typically wild crowd in Santiago, Chile, that goes equally crazy for new songs like El Dorado and When the Wild Wind Blows as they do for classics like The Trooper and Running Free. When frontman Bruce Dickinson orders the audience to, "Scream for me Santiago!" they do, of course, but fans should wait to scream along at home with the DVD version which includes the show and tour documentary.
