4 stars This is an excellent live album for anyone looking to upgrade their Ocean Machine with a stellar sounding adrenaline rush. Ocean Machine has never sounded better with this Live at the Ancient Roman Theatre release, and Devin gave a powerful performance with the usual wall of sound. It is easy to see how much Ocean Machine means to him as it is a gateway to a bunch of phenomenal releases to follow. Ocean Machine is one my favorite albums from Devin along with Terria and Ziltoid. It is an excellent collection of songs and an essential album to own in his extensive catalog. The rest of this big live release contains some favorites from the crowd while Devin flirts with witty and fun interludes between songs. While The Retinal Circus or Ziltoid: Live At The Royal Albert Hall may be considered by some as better live albums, there is so much to like here that it should not be missed. Devin has a tremendous work ethic, and it shows why he is successful as an artist. I listen to Ocean Machine - Live at the Ancient Roman Theatre now more than the original release.
