Review: 
At first glance this looked to be a re-packaged version of Dirkschneider‘s last release, but I am happy to report that is not. While the track list may be almost identical, the songs are completely different live versions. I have to say that although, I loved the previous “Live” Back To The Roots album, I honestly like this one even more. The enthusiasm of the audience and Udo’s newfound fire for re-visiting these classic Accept tracks is simply outstanding. The sound quality on this one really makes you feel like you’re in the audience. And that’s exactly what a live album should deliver. What can I say about the songs represented here? This is classic Accept material. The kind of metal that I grew up listening too. Along with bands like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden, Accept were a big part of the metal genre of the early 80’s. A tradition that continues today…although Accept and Udo have parted ways. Listening to this album, I can’t think that maybe it’s for the best as Accept is still a great metal band, but just don’t really sound quite the same as they did with Dirkschneider at the helm. I really enjoyed hearing these classics live, sung by the original vocalist and I think most metal fans will absolutely love this release. It’s like a time machine that presents the the story of Accept from it’s inception until they parted ways. Great stuff.
