3 stars There are some live albums I find difficult to describe in words. This is one of them.

This live album is based on all their studio albums, bar the 2009 album, as far as I gather. So far, the facts. This live album is my first serious attempt to get under the skin of Delirium's music.

Delirium is a band I believe falls down on the more commercially melodic side of the RPI scene. They had massive success in the 1970s with their hit song Jesahel. A song that made them to multi million seller band. Delirium is back together again and that's for the joy of performing music (and with a lot of pressure from Massimo in Black Widow Records.......... keep up this good work, Massimo). And their joy of music and life shines through at this album. It is a very lively live album.

The music on this album is a mix of commercial music (the hit Jesahel), more heavy intricate RPI and a lot of jazzier & folksy RPI. In short, more or less the ABC of the RPI scene........ and this band. The band is big fans of Jethro Tull (and Jethro Tull may be big fans of Delirium too) and the result is a good Jethro Tull medley. Joe Cocker...... eeehhh.... The Beatles also gets his/their tribute with a version of With A Little Help From My Friends. A song played to death by now, but Delirium does a very good version of it here.

My gripe with this live album is simply the quality of the material. This album have some great songs, but also some pretty average stuff. Simply speaking; this album is too variable and full of deep rivers and some pretty high mountains. I tend to loose my interest at times. But this is still a very good live album and it is recommended.

3.5 stars
