Edguy - Burning Down The Opera-Live
It had to come - EDGUY releasing a live album, and as it seems to grow into a tradition with AFM Records, it has turned out to be a double album, recorded in the French capital of Paris. Just like with the latest ANNIHILATOR double live, I only have one CD with excerpts (overall 11 songs), so I cannot really give you a full review on the whole set, therefore no rating, but I will still try my best here.

The sound quality is, as one would not have expected otherwise, excellent, crystal clear and also with enough noise by the crowd, so that you can get a good impression of the show itself, at least acoustically, and when you have a Tobias Sammet on the mic, you can be sure that you'll have something to enjoy as he's a true clown on stage (I can assure you, also off it!).

The choice of songs is very good, too, very well balancing up tempo hammers, stomping mid paced tracks and also balladesque songs and those prove once more which exceptional compository talent this band is uniting under the EDGUY banner, if you already know the studio albums and/or have read the reviews on the site, then you know what I am talking about.

Even one AVANTASIA song has found its way here (the "title" track of the project, so to say), but they have enough great own compositions to fill the whole thing up. So from what I could hear, this one is definitely a recommended buy to all fans of EDGUY and also to any fan of great quality Power Metal, would be interesting to hear the full album to give you a full fledged review :) (Online July 24, 2003)
