5 stars Part of the fun of TD was to see (or hear) them in concert as they differed quite a bit from their studio albums. They were quite a lot rockier than one could expect and they even outraged the Vatican by playing in the Reims Cathedral (TD was especially popular in France ) in 75-76. Another side of TD then is represented on this album and much rockier where the guitars and drums played loud and long. Somehow even twenty five years after this disc , I still think of Floyd but not as plagiarism but a vague influence/inspiration added with a sense of improvisation also. Please note that Peter Bauman is still on the drums and does quite a job and Chris Franke does most of the KB works because on these tracks Edgar Froese uses his guitars to the best effects doing great Gilmour inspired tirades but still quite inventive.
