Okay, I just got On Fire yesterday (got the CDs, didn't have the money for the DVD), and it's better than I ever could have thought.
First, Freddie's vocals are probably his strongest in this time frame (early 80's); it's rough yet smooth and manageable. Second, This is the first time I have heard Dragon Attack, Action This Day, Back Chat, Fat Bottomed Girls, and Sheer Heart Attack live, and they are truly amazing. Third, Brian's guitar is phenomenal on tracks such as Back Chat, Tie Your Mother Down, and Sheer Heart Attack. Very controlled and forceful.
I think this is not only worth the money, but also worth any fan's time and energy to listen to and/or watch this performance. Definitely is as good as (or better than) Wembley in my opinion.
I know this is a little late, as it's been out for a week here in the US, but damn it is good!
We can only grow the way the wind blows
On a bare and weathered shore
We can only bow to the here and now
In our elemental war
