4 stars Actually I've been very curious how TELIOF would have reproduced their briliiant sound appearance launched upon their one-off studio-based album "Is It?". Suggest their play upon stage should be incredibly cheerful and delightful, and this live album could never betray me. Regardless of a live recording, their recording management, mixing, and production ... all are fantastic.

The first shot "Intro", getting started with a phrase via the last part of "It Is", sounds quite full of vivacity. Such an uptempo, dramatic, heavy but dreamy stuff lets me know another charm of TERIOF. Pretty complex, diverse but favourable and acceptable soundscape should be their musical basis really. Oh anyway, wondering why this album amazingly be veiled in more bluesy atmosphere than the previous album. "I Dream", featuring hard-egded female voices and flute drawing of comfort, is another rockin' heaviness indeed, but mysteriously catchy and much of fun.

"Twisting" cannot be heard ten years ago at all, filled with slowtempo, bluesy, but theatrical, heartwarming melody lines. I'm surprised they could (can) shoot such a serious melodic counterpart. Through "Never Really Here" lots of powerful phrases and sticky melodic attack knock me down completely. My pleasure, flooded with deep bombastic sound texture (but not simply heavy rock obviously), love this track much. The last one "It Is" is kinda real revival of their lovely suite, completely brought back to me into existence ... as if I would enjoy as an audience in front of their stage.

In conclusion, this album cannot win their previous "precious" album "Is It?" but should be worth listening to and attending. Hey Yuval, why not you come to Japan? ;)
