2 stars This, to me, is a very disappointing release from a band that should do better. Now, I'm no expert on Camel's releases, but this concert collection seems to rely heavily on the band's early eighties albums, and appears to be struggling for a more "marketable" sound than their earlier works.

Their is a bit of prog here, the opening track, "Pressure Points" is not bad, and "Captured" is a nice energetic piece. And the album closes with "Rhayader" and "Rhyader Goes To Town". Other than that, the rest of the album is forgettable arena rock tracks, with some better than average solos.

Unless you can't find this for a very low price, I wouldn't recommend it.
