4 stars The best prog rock live album ever......... ?

In my view, it is. It contains everything that makes prog rock so great ............ and so bad. The bad thing is the solo stuff. The drum solo and Rick Wakeman's solo stuff which is pretty uninteresting. The group stuff is excellent and standard setting stuff on where all other bands is being judged. From the magical opening of Heart Of The Sunrise to the viritousity of Roundabout and the pure genious Close To The Edge. This live album is the ABC of prog rock. It has been one of my main tickets to prog rock and it opened my eyes to another world than the metal world when I got it ten years ago (I am a late bloomer).

The solo stuff aside, this album is one album no prog rock fan can ignore and it is as essential as electricity itself. Nuff said.

4.5 stars
