3 stars Kraan Live is a goodlive album documenting the instrumental side of the band. It's decidedly more funky and jazzy then the studio albums up to that point, and for that reason it might have more appeal to people that don't agree well with the Kraut side of the band. For me it's a loss, it's a good live album but it ignores the more experimental and rougher side of the band.

With the opening track the album has at least one gem. It's a previously unreleased song and close to the only track with vocals on this album. That track not withstanding, the remainder of the album merely offers an introduction to the jazzier side of Kraan. But due to the more streamlined sound and the absence of the vocals it's no match for the unique jazz/kraut-rock sound of the debut and Wintrup albums.

Bonnek | 3/5 |
