3 stars The new Soft Machine Legacy live album......

It is debatable if Soft Machine Legacy is a new band with ex Soft Machine members or a continuation of Soft Machine. It is my view that they are a new band. Where Soft Machine was very intense, Soft Machine Legacy has a far more laid back jazz sound. Their new live album proves my point.

The songs here are mostly Soft Machine standards, but slowed down a couple of notches. After a very slow start with Has Riff and Grapehound, this live album comes alive with Nodder. From there on, this live album is a good healthy fare of jazz rock. Mostly jazz, though. Facelift gets....... sorry the pun..... a facelift. The musicianship is great throughout, this band consisting of four of the best ever musicians to come from these shores. This live album also gives each of them plenty of spotlights in their solos. Hence, this live album is a pretty relaxed album and the quality is good throughout. Good but not barnstorming great.

This is a good live album and well worth checking out. I on the other hand prefer the more intense Soft Machine live albums to this album. But this live album is a great advert for Soft Machine Legacy and their upcoming gigs and tours.

3.5 stars
