4 stars Clinically executed, clear sound, perfect chemistry and full maturity.

Masters performances of classic songs, and the occasional smart musical addition. That makes up the first cd. Little can argue with true foundation of the quality of each and every one of the topics in this first part.

The second cd is more controversial. It contains some songs written long ago, with parts added and another removed. Mind Drive is one of those examples. For my part, I find Mind Drive as the best song of the group from the great Going For The One, published 20 years earlier. It is true that it is gentler than īThat, That Isī, but ends up being even stronger than the good track of Keys part I.

Bring Me to The Power and the Children of Light are more inconsistent, and just acceptable. Foot Prints and Sign Language are better, and play a good role in the play.

4+ stars.
