5 stars In my opinion the best album from the four man era of the band. The production is absolutely superb in fact the recording is better that some of the earlier studio efforts and is one of the reasons why the release is so good. (I would recommend the Definitive Edition Remaster version CD as it is superior to the original release). There are really strong performances from all four members. The highlight is of course Supper's Ready, all the power and emotion is captured intact. Many have thought otherwise but I think Collins does a superb job on vocals. There is much to savour with the unforgettable organ solo during Apocalypse in 9/8 and the triumphant ending. I actually prefer this version to the original album recording.

The last two tracks are standouts also with an extended keyboard solo at the end of Cinema Show and the apocalyptic Dance on a Volcano/Los Endos. On Firth of Fifth Steve Hackett gets a chance to shine with a supreme extended solo. Almost every single track is better that the studio original and this is a definite "desert island disc" for me.
