5 stars Almost certainly a band with a great future, Magenta cap the first part of their career with a superb double live CD. The bands best early moments are captured throughout the 110 minutes of musc on offer.

Despite the studio output being mainly the work of Rob Reed and Christina, the live band are able to stamp their own identity on the often lengthy tracks on offer here, with Matthew Cohen and Allen Mason-Jones anchoring the sound perfectly. And just wait until the DVD comes out to see Chris Fry at his best, a guitarist to watch as well as listen to. Martin Prosser is usually unseen at the back of the stage, but makes his mark with some terrifically imaginative playing.

Splendid to see my daughter Ruth pictured in the booklet as well, 10 year old prog fans are few and far between.

Now, if only they'd get around to putting Sloth in the live set, life would be perfect....
