4 stars This was specially recorded in Poland during the Contagion tour 2003. The first 13 tracks are the album almost in its entirity played without a break. Perhaps it's the unfamilliarity of the new material but the crowd don't seem overly involved. This aside the renditions are carried out brilliantly throughout. The second half of the set begins with a fantastic guitar intro to Chosen the first of four taken from The Visitor album. And it is here where the crowd really get going. The main set ends with two great songs from immortal, then comes the encores from lions cage & pride and what encores they are. Solomon really hasn't ever sounded better and shows that Arena are a group and not just five talented individuals like some other groups appear.

The sound and picture quality are excellent, and the camera angles are in the main superbe. Only that thing with the crowd stops me giving this maximum rating.
