4 stars Amazing, I bought this NEW for only 5 bucks. Thought it might just be a curiosity of a live Japan show I might listen to a few times and put at the bottom of the CD piles. Wrong! This is an excellent collection of Utopia music. There is a heavy dominance of the more "poppy" Utopia such as "Trapped" and "Hammer in my Heart" and "Only Human", however there are some interesting bits from earlier Utopia releases such as "Caravan" (not as good as the album version, and "Hiroshima" from RA (played only cuz it was a show in Japan?), and a short version of "The Ikon". The energy of this live show is great, and the band is tight and sounds like they are having a ball. There are not really any klinkers here (although "Hiroshima" may be a bit tacky to play at this show). An overall solid live album that I listen to a lot when I am in my Utopia mood. I have not heard any other live Utopia releases so I cannot compare it them for quality, but I can easily give this a solid 4 stars. Not perfect, but really, really, really good! And what a bargain price!
