5 stars A brilliant live piece from Evergrey. This album is just simply amazing. Words cannot describe the brilliance put behind this live album. As soon as you listen to the first track - being an introduction, you just know that you are in for the ride of your life. This album IS power.

Singer Tom Englund explodes into the stage with Blinded. With a backing choir, the chorus was taken from the epic-scale it was at on the album version, to a whole new level. This is the basis for the rest of the album. Total. . . epicness. And of course, this is only track two of a double-CD set. Every song after another just seems to get more powerful than the first. For the first seven tracks, we're completely destroyed with power metal at it's finest. Rulers of the Mind and End of Your Days are also part of this heavy group of songs. Afterwards, we're slowly brought down to a few, semi-heavy songs, such as Mislead and Mark of the Triangle. This would be the close of the first disc. Once through with it, even though it was only the first disc, you know that it's safe to say to yourself, "This is something to remember."

The second disc opens with the enchanting piano melody of Rikard Zander in When the Walls Go Down. The building progression for the song is done excellent. Honestly, it too my breath away. Especially when it broke into Harmless Wishes right after. Everything flowed together perfectly. Ending with that, we are slowly brought up into our heavier metal again with the haunting Essence of Cenviction. Then, don't even get me started on how amazing Recreation Day was. *Jaw drops and wipes tears* Damn. . . epicness. . . . Anyways, the album finishes off with The Masterplan. It was just so beautifully performed. It was a perfect close for the show. After hearing it, I was left completely envious by the audience who had the opportunity to see them. I give total props to Englund, whom had excellent audience involvement. He really brought out the best with them. Taught them how to have a good time.

Do I have any complaints from this album? Nope!

What I was left with after hearing this album was just pure enjoyment. Exhilarating. This is one of those albums where I can just relax and turn on. Yes I know it is rather heavy for relaxing, but you don't know me! Don't judge! This is just an excellent album, by an excellent band. Evergrey, you've done it again!

Now just to wait for the DVD of the concert.
