4 stars Since the release of the "Empires Never Last" , the band has taken a new direction with Karl Groom (Threshold) as an engineer. The Marillion or Genesis influence has been replaced by a more heavier sound. This live show spread out in 2 audio disk and 1 video demonstrate that new direction even further. The live versions of the songs seems to have a heavier sound compare to the studio versions. From the first song "Salvation I Overture" we almost have the feeling of being in a dance club dancing on a techno beat from the keyboard player Dean Baker. In the next song who is the suite, the singing begin with a faster tempo and the heavy sound. "Guardian Angel" has a melodic chorus with some clear Riverside passages. "Empires Never Last" brings things down on the first part with some improvisation in the middle of the song. "And Secret Worlds display some impressive piano lines throughout the song. "This Life could be my Last" is a favorite for the crowd with his dramatic melody carried by the emotional vocals of Stuart Nicholson. This live show could not exist without the old epic "Sleepers" who is still amazing on this live recording. It is clear that the band wanted to sound modern with some techno effects, heavy guitars and trying to get away from the Neo-Prog tag and probably prefer to be tag a symphonic Rammstein! The DVD of this show don't have a picture quality as good as the previous one : "Resonance", but it's still pleasant with a good stereo sound.
