3 stars This live album has been stored on some tapes for twenty five years before it was released. The result is a satisfying album.

Osiris is pretty much living and performing in the same street as Genesis/Marillion and Camel. Maybe I should now crack a joke about the camels on the Arabian peninsula, but I leave it like that.

The music on this concept live album, released in memory of a fallen ex Osiris member, is elegant and engaging. It is also clearly rooted in Arabian folk music. I think the music can be described as neo-prog with local Arabian flavors. The main instruments is keyboards and guitars. The vocals is good and the sound is pretty epic.

Although the music is good, it really never takes off and becomes a piece of music that draws the listener in. This album pleases my ears, but never tickles my brain. This despite of some great pieces of music. But it also have some pretty mediocre stuff too. This is a pleasing album, but nothing more.

3 stars
