3 stars a good live collection of great songs most of them from the third("melt")and ("security") albums. i'm not crazy about the sound of this CD ,but it contains realy good renditions of "family snapshot" and "The Rhythm Of The Heat ","i have the touch" and the magnificant "San Jacinto " it's nice to see some older songs in here ,although both "Solsbury Hill " and "Humdrum" sound better in their original vesions thous songs belong to the 70's. "on the air" is another medicore preformence of an older song,the song sounds weaker then the album version mainly beacuse peter's singing has changed in the 4 years since that song was recorded there is less playfullness and less sarchastic tone in his voice,this does'nt affect most of the more recent matriel but when his singing stuff like "on the air" you can feel the change. my advice to you is this: if you love peter gabriel's 3rd and 4th albums get this CD today.
