4 stars I never thought a live record would sound like this... really. These album reaches a perfect 10 in the technical side, and a good earned 9 in the musical one. Marillion has emerged as a very interesting force in music that has faced a lot of drama, moods and members (a long lost past) that has constructed a very solid band. These record has a very unique setlist, because it has been chosen by the fans in a web forum, so in many ways is a pretty complete list. For those who like the old Marillion this record would be a disappointment, beacuse the fish-era songs are now forgotten. However, if you have the chance to buy the 2-disc set you'll find a more enriched setlist with more colors and emotions, covering the whole Hogarth -era, preserving good songs like "afraid of sunlight" and "the great escape" and showing the power of the late songs from the non-emi catalogue. A record like these is a very hard and solid statement form a band that has endured for over 20 years.
