3 stars This is THRESHOLD's third release, and their first live album.They have a new drummer for this one and it's kind of interesting hearing Glynn Morgan singing the three songs that Damian Wilson originally sang.

"A Tension Of Souls" is pretty faithful to the original with a slow and heavy intro.The song picks up tempo 3 minutes in as riffs arrive. Glynn's vocals on this song remind me of Jon Oliva's, kind of rough. "Sanity's End" is all about the vocals. I like the mellow interlude 2 1/2 minutes in.This is one song I can hear Wilson's vocals in my mind, and Glynn is really faithful to his style. The synths sound great, as does the soaring guitar 6 minutes in. A minute later they just let it rip ! Nice keyboard solo followed by some biting guitar.

"Innocent" opens with reserved vocals and melancholic guitar melody. Vocals get passionate as drums come in. A blistering guitar solo 3 minutes in.This becomes a powerful song and the vocals have a lot to do with that. "Surface To Air" opens with soft vocals and piano, as a full sound comes in before 2 minutes. Some fantastic guitar 5 minutes in. "Paradox" has an uptempo chorus and some screaming guitar 7 minutes in.

This is a good live record but most of my favourites from the first two albums are missing. Still, the crowd is very into this concert and the band played extremely well.
