4 stars This is the album that introduced me to BÖC back in 1981 and it didn't leave the turntable for weeks. A strong live recording with some awesome versions eclipsing the studio stuff. The fantastic, never surpassed versions on this album are THE SUBHUMAN; THE RED & THE BLACK; SEVEN SCREAMING DIZ- BUSTERS; THEN CAME THE LAST DAYS OF MAY; ME 262 (including the famous five guitar jam). The rest is decent with some heavy riffing. The keyboard oriented prog fan should keep in mind that BÖC are a guitar centred band with a good keyboard player and some tasteful drumming. A worthwhile record easily securing its 4 stars.
