2 stars Looking at the CD packaging, this one is much more better than the official bootleg "For Whom The Bells Toll" which I gave four stars in overall rating. This is more official release on Fish concert but the content is not that attractive. The big fallacy with this live album is to open the concert with a cover song "Fearless" which does not project Fish' confidence with his own material from his solo albums. It's too bad that he starts with this and with less-attractive performance. It flows to another "not good" song "Big Wedge" from his first album. I have lost my patience actually because I do not understand why he started the show with these two bad songs? It even worse that he continues with another cover "Boston Tea Party" and there is a bit entertaining when he sings "Credo" and it reaches the peak with "Family Business". Yes, "Family Business" is a great track and I had to wait four mundane tracks to get my adrenalin runs faster with "Family Business".

He continues with mellow track "A View From A Hill". Marillion's "He Knows You Know" is performed very badly and I cannot bear to listen this track in its entirety because I got bored with his singing style and also the band can not emulate the soul of original Marillion. The rest Marillion tracks are also so bad: "She Chameleon" (3:59), "Kayleigh" (4:12), "White Russian" (9:19). The disc concludes excellently with great track "The Company" (7:10).

Disc Two also does no better than Disc One even though I really love "Cliché" being played. This is a great track from his debut album.

I can only say that this CD is only suitable for die hard fans of Fish. If you just wanna enjoy the music, this is not a good one to start. Not recommended for newbie, it's only for die hard fans. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW
