3 stars There is nothing wrong with this live set. What's (almost) new here, is that the band proposes already recorded songs during this tour. So far, they performed new material for most of the time.

The audience is quite receptive I should say (bearing in mind the type of music played). It is only a pity that some excellent tracks are too much shortened to my taste ("Poland"). Still, these eight minutes are rather convincing: upbeat for six of them and heavenly melodic during the closing two. A highlight for sure.

The same sort of structure (and characteristics) applies to "Silver Scale" which also can be considered as one of the best parts from this live offering. Now, I won't say that I am enchanted by the "remix" of the excellent original "Stratosfear". This version is quite accelerated to be honest, and I can't explain why the band decided to make it such a rocking song from it.

The old TD fan must of course have grown with the years to appreciate this set, but the move is quite easy. The whole being enjoyable enough to justify the three stars rating. A good album by all means.
