5 stars Ingenious. This is THE live album. Let me just say here that I am not a fan of live albums, really. I usually prefer the polished and better produced feel of studio work. However, this CD brings with it some amazingly reimagined pieces and two incredible medleys that just cannot be overlooked. This is not just the band in concert. This is not just the band unplugged. This is how live CDs should be done. Each song is substantially and appreciably different from their respective album versions, giving this release the value of hearing each piece in a completely new light.

I think this is the only live album I still own. And it is completely worth it. If you like Pain of Salvation at all, you'll like this one, almost guaranteed. In fact, it's a great place to start to wean non-metal fans onto the band. An essential part of the Pain of Salvation catalog.
