5 stars I already had a taste of Talk Talk's live capabilities in 2000 when they released London 1986.....Already totally overblows by the the live capabilities......turning song that already were masterpieces into even greater pieces.......But with this concert....the bar has been raised even higher........what an incredible performance...........that more than ever before shows the importance of Talk Talk's influence on modern music.....I frequently had to think of Radiohead for example.....The link between this 2 bands is more than ever clearly visible.

Just as with London 1986 there are no weak songs here, but only masterpieces...its a gig that buildsb on highlight after highlight.....pushing all the way up to what probably is one of their most touching and sensitive songs....Renee....Played in a tight, deeply emotional and mindblowing version that is sending shivers down my spine.....This goes for all the songs.....that are played here....Tomorrow Started.....Living In Another World....all of them add alot to the orginal ersion of the songs..time after time showing a much more experimental side that often reminds you more of The Cure in their middle years, or Radiohead......the solo's, distoptions and sound effects are heavy all over the gig.......but mostly during a version of Such a Shame (check out that bassline after aprox 5 min....totally awsome).....that is played here in a much longer version (8.30 min) that is resulting in some heavy jamming.....especially the last 3 min...are amazing....the version is very much the same as on London 1986, but now they are playing an accoustic guitar over the end....that jams up quite tense....creating an even better version....

All in all a totally mindblowing concert that comes highly recomanded....Great great sound by the way...but from Eagle Records's Montruex releases we are not expecting anything lesser....
