4 stars One of the better live albums by the progressive rock legend. The only subject of acquired taste is the subdued first half with 1 new studio recording (the title track) and acoustic live tracks. I recommend listening this album during more reflective moments when its musicianship and focus on atmosphere rather than flamboyance impresses more listeners. Tracks played are chosen greatly with old classics but also forays into 80-90's. All instrumentalists are highly competent but I would highlight the keyboard prowess and power of multiple styles. However, unexpectedly good acoustic guitar is also tempting. The missing dynamism of the first CD is compensated by the second CD with richer sound and intensity contrasts - short light tracks and almost full-blown epics. It's also positive that the singer leaves enough room for unspoken music.

Recommended for all Banco fans of later sound.
