2 stars Well, usually We judge the grandeur- as well as the skill and powerful performance regarding a prog band- on the basis of a great execution and a remarkable "coreography" live on stage...while here- apart from the poor mix- I'm a little bit disturbed by the keyboard-player, as it seems He tries to emulate Keith Emerson only (sometimes almost stealing some sampling tunes and the typical approach at the organ by the English artist) and remain not satisfied also when the ouptut is so different from the performance at the Recording Studio. In fact, when I think of their best album "Metanoia" I'm a little perplex about their execution live, especially because They are not able to add anything new or really astonishing in the solos...probably such defect is due to the fact They don't perform so many recordings live (this is their unique album recorded on stage that I know). Instead I'm satisfied when I listen to the female vocalist (as much good as She's in her performance with Nexus within the Studio albums), even though I can't hear almost anything of what She' singing during her "act", perhaps because the bad mix of the present live recording is able to ruin her vocalims a bit!!.

Nevermind at the end, if a fun of the band can appreciate a number of classics regarding them, but in my opinion They are too much 70's oriented also in the sound, even though it could be a minor defect for the "die-hard" fans of this Argentinian ensemble...ok I prefer another South American band (especially live), called "Sagrado Coracao da Terra", which is perfect during their gigs (this time a Brazilian group), but I quite appreciate Nexus as well!!

Non-essential, but good product that should be re-mastered once again, in my opinion!!
