5 stars Live & Life is one of my all time favourite live albums. every song on the double CD is presented with skill and passion, and received by an appreciative crowd, giving the whole thing an excellent feel. The tracks have been amply covered in Gatot's review so I won't repeat the list, but will point out my own highlights. Enemy Without with John Mitchells quality guitar,and hanging tree brilliantly sung by Rob Sowden, are both breathtaking, on disc two. My own favourite though is on disc one and skin game, which is so much better live than on the Contagion album (wich takes some doing). The DVD is for me interesting, entertaining and at times amusing, but I do love this band, even a new listener to Arena should find it worth watching though.

Overall this is a great little package which I have recommended to people previously and it got them hooked on Arena, so go on and give it a try!
