Review from internet.

The European leg of the "HOT SPACE TOUR", known for its great performances. A new masterpiece live album is born from the hidden area.
Although it is the "HOT SPACE" era that is often considered to be out of order in general QUEEN history, it was quite different on the stage. The European leg, which was held at the beginning of the tour, especially before and after the album's release, is a concentrated area of ​​great performances and performances that are rarely seen in QUEEN history. In recent years it has been known that the official video “QUEEN ON FIRE: LIVE AT THE BOWL” has performed well, but not even that detonation tension is not special, and hyper-lives of equal or greater level have been repeated every day. That's why live albums are also popular, and we have introduced many masterpieces in our shop. This work is the latest bullet of so great "1982 Europe". It is a masterpiece audience recording of "April 23, 1982 Brussels performance".
As always, it starts with the big picture of “HOT SPACE TOUR”, but it has already been explained many times. This time, take a step and narrow down the miracle European leg to organize our collection.

This is the 1982 European tour. All 30 performances are performed, and it becomes the 13th live album in this work. While introducing so much in mass, "the condition is one more" is only the first "SHAKE THAT THING" which is not fully powered by the engine. The rest is all in the premiere level, and in other times it is just a great show that is likely to be the No. 1 tour. You may not understand how this tour was a miracle. Among them, the Brussels performance of this work is the first part of the tour, it takes an engine, and it was the concert that is the 9th performance that the tour of the miracle finally began to show its true nature.

And this work that recorded such a show, the sound is quite wonderful. In fact, no full recording has been found for this show, and two types of incomplete audience recordings are known. Although this work is a combination of both, it is fortunate to be able to cover all the shows in the show. Specifically, in the first half "Tape 1" from the opening to "Reply of" Now I'm Here ". "Tape 2" was recorded from the next "Tie Your Mother Down" to the closing performance. As a matter of fact, since the beginning of "Tie Your Mother Down" is a missing recording, it is not completely perfect, but all the songs in the show can be heard well. What's more, these two recordings are similar in sound, and if you don't know anything, it's a natural live album that you just think of as "Tie at the head of Tie Your Mother Down."

And that basic quality is great. In particular, "Tape 1" is a clear master newly excavated recently, and it is a big difference from the conventional version where the tape speed was Yoriyore. It is a vintage audience and is not a type that is mistaken for the sound board, but its core is strong and jumps into the hand, making it a fat bass that tends to be a weak point in the audience recording. And it is clear that it becomes more than that. Freddie's singing voice is clearly understood up to one word of the lyrics, and the detail of the guitar is sharp to the subtlety more than the outline. As a matter of fact, even with the new excavation master, shaking also occurs from the end of "Now I'm Here" to "Dragon Attack" (end of Tape 1) (probably the battery of the recorder was exhausted. In this work, this part Not only that, but the whole has been restored with meticulous mastering), but it is not completely perfect, but otherwise it is one of the best recordings in this miracle tour.
If it is said that the high tension of the show drawn with such a sound! The opening is the flow of "Flash" → "The Hero" → "We Will Rock You (fast)" which is familiar even with "QUEEN ON FIRE", but in fact "We Will Rock You (fast)" has been revived From the day. That stunning stream of falling into the snow with the new song "Action This Day" was completed this day. And this "Action This Day" is really fresh. Performances and singing voices are also fresh, but after the final performance, Freddie utters, "Now is the song of" HOT SPACE ". However, as you see the schedule above, this European leg is before the release of the album. Of course, the audience can't buy it, and the audience returns "No!" To say "Yes, it was still" and starts playing "Play The Game" as if they are hidden behind the scenes.

Even after that, there will be a great show that you'll want to say, "100% real QUEEN ON FIRE", but it will still be similar. The vocal improv to be shown in various places is also unique, and it is considered as hyper growth because it is hyper tension. Furthermore, if you say that you can not listen in "QUEEN ON FIRE" "Liar". This is a rare performance featuring Kirechkire and a rare arrangement that weaves "Back Chat" along the way. In the "Love Of My Life" that follows, Brian mixes French with MC, and inspiring great chorus spreads as it is guided. Furthermore, ......, the point of listening is incessant. It is a show that has a simple voice and has a force, but the european leg in 1982 is a miracle, since the perfect upset creates magical moments one after another. It is a live album like that sample.

The large-scale performance of the official video "QUEEN ON FIRE" was not the very thing ...... because it was in front of a large crowd of Milton Keynes. The good condition has already begun for more than a month ago, and it has never ended until that official pro shot. It is the proof of the sound, and the fresh momentum of the early stage is also a masterpiece of the dazzling live album. Besides listening to mania, I would like to say ...... but I do not want to spread too much to be a mania only Taoyuan Town. The secret of “Europe in 1982,” a wonderfully secretive monopoly. Please enjoy yourself in this work.
