3 stars I have always rated this band quite highly. They have in my views always done intelligent heavy rock with the exception from a couple of turkeys from the 1990s when they jumped on the heavy metal bandwagon. So it was with great expectations I put this album in my CD player.

I was in for a nasty surprise though. After the great two opening tracks Dominance & Submission and Cities On Flame, some turkeys enters the frame. AOR songs, no less. Hard AOR, I hasten to add. Bad AOR. OK, you get my drift. This is not the BOC I like. The album becomes a lot better at the end wit the classics ETI and Don't Fear The Reaper. But the damage has been done. This is a Dr. Jekyll & Dr. Hyde live album. From superb to abysmal. I hope the rest of the BOC albums I bought is better than this one. A very weak 3 stars.

3 stars
