Twisted Sister

Double Live DVD

Review by Larry Toering

On this two disc set, Twisted Sister are found in all of their glory from the early days to the more recent reunion era. Disc one is a performance from the North Stage in 1982 and disc two consists of the reunion concert performed at New York Steel in 2001. And they both contain warts and all, as disc one is a rather old tape restored to the best of ability, and disc two finds them back after many years, yet they pull off an otherwise near perfect performance. It's great to see them in their absolute heyday, and then see how it all translated so many years later, almost as if not a day had gone by. One can easily see and hear how well they aged by watching both performances, as they seem to have lost nothing.

Both shows do contain a lot of the same tracks, but the more the merrier where Twisted Sister are concerned...  as long as you like them, you're guaranteed a great time. As for production values, both discs are carefully mixed,  but of course disc one contains archival footage, so it's not your state of the art sound, save for disc two, which makes up for that.

Eagle always brings the best, and this TS release is yet another fine choice they have made.
