5 stars Many years ago, during the period of this live-album, I visited an Ozric Tentacles concert in The Hague, my hometown. I was amazed by the crowd, so many white Rastafari's, I had never seen these people at a progrock concert! They must have come for the very relaxed atmosphere in the music, often based upon reggae. In my opinion Ozric Tentacles invented a kind of progrock that is as innovative as mid-Rush. You can trace elements from spacerock, reggae, fusion, ambient, symphonic and ethnic, what a stunning variety! The compositions on this live-album are their best material featuring distinctive guitarplay from Mr. Ed (he often uses guitar-effects like wah-wah, very spectacular), sensational keyboardwork, a splendid rhythm-section and delicate fluteplay. The frequent changing of climates is very thrilling, from hypnotizing with flute and a swinging rhythm-section to harder-edged featuring fiery guitarsoli and flashy synthesizers. My absolute highlight is the track "Kick Muck", especially the exciting, heavingly distorted electric guitar and the propulsive rhythm. IF YOU ARE UP TO ADVENTUROUS PROGROCK, THIS ONE IS YOURS!!
