Title: “That One Night: Live In Buenos Aires”
Label: Image Entertainment
Release Date: 9/4/2007

After having the chance to enjoy the killer live concert DVD by Megadeth for a couple of months now one might wonder whether an audio only version of this is concert is actually necessary. If you are one of those people who does not yet own the DVD for “That One Night: Live In Buenos Aires”, then you are indeed a Metal fan who is cheating themselves out of a totally enjoyable and kick ass concert film. The release itself has been receiving some high acclaim and showed a Megadeth that was firmly back in control of their destiny and deserving of any of the accolades that they were getting. It was filmed after the first Gigantour had completed and showcases the lineup of Dave Mustaine, the Drover Brothers Glen and Shawn and bassist James McDonough in front of a capacity crowd in Argentina. Given the band’s appearance in a region where they really know and love their Metal it was not surprising to find that the band shows a tightness that is only able to come after months of grueling touring. Needless to say the audience is beside themselves with joy and exhilaration as the band performed its set. The show was in support of “The System Has Failed”, their newest release at the time and as result had a fair amount of material from the album along with a number of staple numbers from their catalog. All in all this was a very worthy addition to one’s DVD collection. With that being said, do we really need to own the audio only version of this and my answer is very clearly “yes”. In order to make sure that fans had something to firm their decision up for them, Image Entertainment has included three additional songs from the concert that were not on the DVD. Those songs are “Skin Of My Teeth”, “Angry Again” and “Die Dead Enough” and each of them sounds fine but my favorite falls to “Skin” as it’s such a great live tune.
