3 stars Good technique of all the musicians, correct performance but...

This but means that in Curved Air's music there was always something missing to me. When I started to think about it I realised that it is all about melodies and moment. Even if You listen to the best CA songs it is not that easy to catch that memorable moments. It is not that kind of music which stucks in one of the corners of your mind after the first listening. You need a big focus to catch the spirit of this music.

Anyway for me this live album is one of the best in their career. Probably the best songs, fantastic solo parts: especially Francis Monkman's in Propostion and Darryl Way's in everlasting Vivaldi. For me Sonja's vocal parts are too often in front in this records; I'd like to hear more instrumental solos.

Anyway it is a CLASSIC PROG!!! Even if you're not a CA fan, you should listen to it because in now days there are not too many original bands like this.

Patiquee | 3/5 |
