4 stars This last week I re-discover that amazing live double live album... It's really an intense experience! Some kind of resume of the first part of Anekdoten career, full of crimsonian inffluences, some drops of classical music and totally epical and melancholic; dark for sometimes (thanks to the great work on cello by Anna Sofi) reaches high emotional points specially with remarkable songs such as Karelia, The Old Man and the Sea, Book of Hours and the magnificent two parts of Rubankh.

Even when you can compare Anekdoten with the mid 70's Crimson, the truth is that these scandinavian guys knew how to take that inffluence and turned in something refreshing and new. This album is a great example of the talent of their musicians (in fact there are just few differences between live and studio songs) but I insist, the two albums sounds great and is one of the best examples that I've heard of the new generation of ProgRock of the 90's... If you really enjoy Prog you have to listen these awsome album!
