3 stars I have some difficulties with Greenslade.

There is something missing in the picture.......... I cannot put my finger on it. But this is a band I by default should love. I am throwing money at their releases. A fortune, no less. But I still do not fall for this band. Let's take this album.........

It starts with Sundance and that is a good tune. My blood does not boil, but it is still a good tune. The following two songs are marred by an elk trying to sing....... Maybe not, but I am sure an elk sings better than Dave Lawson. He and David Greenslade redeem themselves on keyboards. The bass player and the drummer also know their stuff. The band cannot be faulted on their musical abilities. That's for sure.

Greenslade's problem is the lack of one or two real killer tunes. Even on this live album, there is nothing there making me dropping a mug of coffee on the floor with amazement. It is a solid, good live album. And that's it. When that is said, I really enjoy some parts of this album. Feathered Friends, the second Sundance and Bedside Manners Are Extra are some great songs. The same goes for the bass solo on Melange. Besides of that, it is a nice band with some nice music. It is rather a church instead of a cathedral. But I would still recommend Greenslade to everyone.

3.75 stars for an album who did not quite deliver.
