4 stars This album is a key addition to your collection if you like energetic, mood elevating power-progrock or if you are just a follower of PALLAS.

It's live and showcases the best of what Pallas has to offer and shows how talented the band really is without the benefit of studio tricks. It's based on the tour that supported their "Cross And The Crucible" tour, but canvases the best of their catalogue. Frontman Alan Reed is in rare form as are his mates. Listen for some spine tingling , blistering guitar work from ever improving Niall Mathewson, particularly on CROSS AND THE CRUCIBLE which opens the CD. Of particular interest is the performance of the two songs,"Executioner / Rat Racing". Stunning and bold. Better than the studio versions from the album "The Wedge".

As mentioned before, classic early works are available here, all new and improved just for the stage. This is pure progressive rock running on all cylinders and is one of the best live albums I've heard in a while. When you buy this, buy the DVD too. This is an essential aquisition for the serious collector. What are you doing sitting here reading this?... GO BUY THIS CD NOW!!!!!!!!!
