"Keeper Of The Seven Keys - The Legacy World Tour 2005/2006 - Live In Sao Paulo" is the new live album of our Heavy Metal masters from Germany, Helloween. "Live In Sao Paulo" (let me tell you that we will only call it "Live In Sao Paulo" ok? I think that it will be easier haha) is the audio version of the DVD also released through the German label SPV. No need to talk a lot to say and explain that this DVD and this live album are simply awesome, that they're must. If you like Helloween and Heavy Metal, please don't miss these releases!

"Live In Sao Paulo" was recorded during The Legacy World Tour and it's essentially composed of songs from the three Keeper albums plus some super hits like "If I Could Fly", which means that it's just top-notch quality music, really just have a look on the track list and you'll understand what I mean. "I Want Out", "Future World" or "Eagle Fly Free" all the mega hits of the band are present in the set list, and we even have a magisterial version of "Halloween", a song that the band rarely plays live. Believe me, the performance of Halloween is just fantastic and full of energy, the band is extremely charismatic on this release. No doubt, they're killers and this "Live In Sao Paulo" is one new proof of their gigantic talent (and well, I saw them during this tour, so I'm not exaggerating).

But a good live, that's good songs of course but also good production and good audience. Here, the production is perfect we can hear everything, all the instruments like the voice of Andi Deris without any problem, and of course we hear a lot the fantastic audience of Sao Paulo. When I listen to a live album, I want a good sound of course but I want to feel the ambiance of the show and here, that's just amazing. The crowd sings during all the songs, during all the choruses, it was a fantastic ambiance without any doubt and we can feel it while we're listening to the CD. Sao Paulo was probably the perfect choice to record a live album

Nothing to say against this release, this is just perfect and that's all. If you're looking for a great live album, just buy this one, it's a fantastic release! Only hits, not any bad points, a perfect sound, an amazing audience, I would like to receive such kind of live albums everyday. Hail to Helloween for this release!

I saw them on the same tour as well so it is pretty much the same setlist.. and it just brings back all of them memories of probably the best day in my life. haha

there is nothing more to say.. this is pretty much the perfect album for me

I'm going to wear my Helloween Keeper Legacy shirt today now because of this

They say that we are gone but I can't let you down

I've just watched the main show, and while the setlist and the sound are perfect, the filming is actually average (nothing bad but nothing surprising) and the image quality is quite bad. I mean, it's probably perfect on a TV screen, but on a PC screen you see the compression level is quite high. And it's actually worse when they show you parts of the Sofia and Kawazaki shows.
To give you an idea, the main show is rendered with an image quality which is close to the bonus tracks of the other live DVD I own, which is Dream theater's Scenes From New York.

Anyway, the music is great, the performance is great, the audience is great, the artwork is great... and I still have to watch the second DVD!
