3 stars A live album of some theatrical music from this band who originates from the 1970s.

I love the story behind this album and I love the artwork. The music on the other hand falls frustratingly short of what I hoped for. Not by a long distance, but still short.

The music here is pretty mellow symphonic prog. Genesis is a good reference point. Genesis without the adventure you always found in their songs. Based on acoustic guitars as this music is, the keyboards adds some texture, but not as much as I had hoped for. My main gripe is the lack of some great songs and the pretty bad sound. Even being a live album, this album does not have a great sound. The details is lost in the mix somewhere. I believe the songs here was performed with a lot of finesse and details. They are lost here. The end result is frustration over a good album which could had been a lot more than a good album. The positives is that this is after all a good album and which may interest the RPI fan. I am a happy owner of this album. But........

3 stars
