3 stars This is the another official live-album by Arena. Unfortunately, I have the shorter version of this record, without the 2nd CD. Though I cannot say that I like it very much so I don't especially worry about the lack of that bonus CD. As their WELCOME TO THE STAGE this live record contains the compositions pretty similar to their original versions, but the choice of the material for this one is not so good (for my personal taste) as at their previous live- release. The two only tracks from the earliest period by Arena are Midas Vision and Crying For Help-VII - my least favorite ones. (Though, at least the instrumental-vocal version of the last mentioned one is much better than atrocious wailings "Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeelp Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" without instruments).

I've given 3 stars for it, but it's by the cause that there's no 2,5 stars rating at ProgArchives...
