AllMusic Review by

Like him or not, you have to credit Yngwie Malmsteen for sticking to his guns over the years. Since his debut in the early '80s, he hasn't slowed down a bit, despite countless obstacles that have been thrown in his path along the way. This double-CD live set shows that -- astonishingly -- Malmsteen's playing is even faster and more over the top in concert than it is on his studio recordings. Overall, Double Live is far superior to the muddy-sounding (and sloppy) Live in Leningrad disc, released ten years earlier. It includes some tasty covers by Rainbow, Deep Purple, and Jimi Hendrix.
