3 stars German proggers High Wheel have been around for quite some time now, and fans will probably appreciate that they after 17 years decided to issue this double live CD.

Their melodic blend of neo-prog and classic melodic rock spiced with elements from metal and prog metal should have a potentially big audience; and as a live act this release documents the band as a tight, experienced live act.

Still, not everything is perfect here - some songs drag on for a bit too long, some have too many changes of style too fast, and some just aren't interesting. For me.

Fans of bands like Spock's Beard, Genesis and neo-prog groups like IQ and Galahad might want to check out this release, especially if they don't mind some harder metal sections to individual songs.

Windhawk | 3/5 |
