4 stars For a quick history on ARTSRUNI, please check below. "The Live Cuts 2000/2001" features live performances by ARTSRUNI. While I'm not usually impressed by live albums from prog bands, once in a while a prog band comes along that sounds stronger on stage. Those of you who are familiar with the band's newest CD, Cruzaid, will recognize most of the tracks here. The band extends most of the compositions with some great solo work from their guitarist and bassist. The gem, for me, has to be "Ethnophonica (Suite, Part III)". This composition features the band playing with an Orchestra. But the music mixes modern classical with traditional Armenian melodies. The outcome is stunning, especially for fans of 20th Century Classical. Musea should seriously consider releasing the entire suite. While the sound-quality of sounds rather weak, I'm sure this concert was properly recorded or can be fixed up in the mastering studio. Overall, "The Live Cuts 2000/2001" is a treat. With superb playing from every band member, and great sound-quality (aside from "Ethnophonica"), this CD is worth-while.
