4 stars It's a really good album. Magenta seems to be one of the few bands that sound even better live than they sound in the studio, Perhaps that's thanks to Christina Booth's crisp vocals and less rigid arrangements than those found on the studio albums. The song selection leaves nothing to be desired plus the soloes and improvs have a very vibrant feel. This is a top-of-the-shelf album for any neo-prog fan and because it's a quite a long, double CD release, it can also serve as a sort of definitive cross-section of Magenta's first three albums (sadly it does not include their newest work, Metamorphosis).

My perosnal favourite on this album is Sloth, from their second album. That track, with the live arrangement, signifies all the positivities of the whole genre of neo-prog.

Ampersand | 4/5 |
