3 stars Here I have to second Bob's opinion. This is not a bad live album but certainly it's not the one I would recommend of Blue Oyster Cult. Maybe my judgement could be wrong, especially after the recent remastered version that features a dvd section with the wild performences on stage from the end of the seventies. Well, that has to be great, I presume. I will check it for sure.

On about the traditional album: it obviously was thought, planned and released to follow the than recent big success of album such as "Agents of Fortune" and "Spectres". It's not a case that it came only three years later from the first one. From this point on both "Don't Fear the Reaper" and "Godzilla" are part of any live show of the band.

Sound's quality is good and finally there is "Astronomy" in the tracks' selection. A special mention goes to the opener "R.U. Ready to Rock" from the Spectres album which is more better than the original studio version, more dynamic and with a nice synth work by Allen Lanier.

All in all a decent work that lack in comparison with the previous live glory "On Your Feet or on Your Knees" and the next excellent "Extraterrestrial Live".

To be noticed also, despite the short track selection, two covers "Kick Out the Jams" (MC5) and "We Gotta Get Out of this Place" (Animals).
