4 stars Finally one of their best live albums, enriched with such a good choice of the songs; above all tracks like "Mother Russia" and "Running Hard" from their album "Turn of the Cards" and "Ashes are burning",from their pretty album with the same title!! Naturally it's an high quality live concert performance and its unique defect is that their majestic top tracks are not balanced by means of an extract-at least- from other symphonic works. In fact the album "Novella" is not perfectly represented by their usual ballad "Midas Man", even though it could be one of their most famous songs...instead "Touching at Once" is always versatile and in this live version as well...of course I should have appreciated other songs like "Trip to the fair" from Scheherazade or mini-suites like"Day of the dreamer" and "A song for all Seasons" from the homonymous album, not included in the recent live ("In the land of the rising sun") concerning their reunion; even though I don't know whether "A song for all Seasons" was edited before the "Mother Russia live" or not...well let me know about it!!

Try to check it out!!
