3 stars CURVED AIR fits better in the "art rock" category, blending late '60s typical sounds with excellent progressive hints.

In this live stuff, there are lots of wonderful violin and keyboards, nice melodies... but the annoying Sonja Kristina's voice is a huge point against the album. Perhaps, she tried to give a power sense to the live performance, but her screams were out of place.

"Propositions", "Young Mother" and the classically inspired "Vivaldi" extended versions are musically beautiful and really well played, and Way/Monkman couple (the future SKY line- up) demonstrates virtuosity along the whole opus, but beauty is ruined by the vocal parts.

Instrumental sections deserves four stars. So, if you don't matter about singing "excesses", it will be an interesting album.
