4 stars I really like, is better than it may seem!

Over two and a half hours of live music, with Hogarth in inspired shape and a great group supporting excellently. Probably a live work of Steve without Marillion is not very attractive, but this work is somewhat different, deserves attention and does not disappoint. Only two songs from Marillion found towards the end, and they sound somewhat different.

The names of the members of the band speak for itself. Dave Gregory ( XTC ) and Aziz Ibrahim ( Simple Red, Stone Roses) are responsible for the guitar beautifully, like Richard Barbieri (Japan, Porcupine Tree) on Synths and Andy Gangadeen (ZZ Top, Jeff Beck) in Drums.

Some broad themes may seem strenuous and quiet, but they are solid compositions and convey emotion, leaving a good feeling as long as you're not looking for explosive music, then this would be boring. This does not mean there is no good energy moments and powerful voice deployments of master artist. The covers are well chosen and have the personal touch of H and his band.

sinslice | 4/5 |
