3 stars A different approach for a different line-up, whose music inspiration sometimes is inferior than their past, but We can regard it as a remarkable effort anyway!! The departure of Mr Orford- the keyboardplayer- has been quite important and problematic too, but also the presence of Andy Edwards in the place of Paul Cook (however afterwards rejoning the band), as He's the creative rhytmical machine of IQ on drums, is a sad lack!! Otherwise the choose of their melodies and a sensible music approach, make this live tour a typical example of their new mood... the opener is a classic IQ tune, with the same impact as within the previous albums and a solid structure; instead "Life Support " reminds me of Steve Hackett in the best period concerning the early Genesis, even though when I listened to it for the first time I expected something a little bit less derivative, but it's a minor defect after all...The "Province" is an original track enriched by means of the guitar solo, while the unique commercial or mainstream song is entitled "Ryker Skies", reminding me of "Calling all stations", but at the end I can smile at their new interesting Tour and a remarkable long live career too, after all!

You can buy it, anyway!!
