4 stars I decided to go to the Pendragon Mega Daze at Riffs (near Swindon England) in September 2008, so in order to get myself even more excited (rather on time since it's still 7 month away)I decided to watch one of their DVD's again, reading Easy Livin's review I decided that this set was the one to watch today.

Liveosity isn't a 'new' product, both the live CD (accoustically challenged) and the live DVD (Live at Last) were previously seperatly released, with this release Pendragon has combined the two in a 'simple' jewel case, with good artwork, though honestly I prefer a DVD in a bigger case, but we are in it for the music, so when i bought this I thought it to be a very good deal for a reasonable price, and it was.

I'm not overtly fond of the accoustic set, it's good music, but it's too much accoustics (with synth keyboards?) and the absence of drums takes away some of the dynamics I've come to expect from the band. But it's nice to have and listen to once in a while.

The real deal however is the DVD Live at Last, a great show, and great fun to watch. You can see that the band really enjoyes the show themselves. The songs are played very well, with attention to details throughout the show. The show kicks right in with a good uplifting version of Nostradamus and is followed with a consistantly good set of some of my favourite songs from Pendragon. highlights include As Good As Gold, Breaking the Spell and The Last Man on Earth.

If you already have the DVD Live at Last, than you can skip this, else Liveosity is as good as gold.. Enjoy.
