4 stars This is the first live album out of the three this group has released. Three live albums are quite much for a band that has recorded only four studio albums (excluding Harmony of the Spheres) so far. All three have been released in different labels so that pretty much explains it. This album is the Mellow Records one so perhaps this can be considered the most official one. The majority of the tracks are from the first two studio albums, which they had released before this live album. There is one track that later appeared in In Ogni Luogo with a different song title. The first four tracks are from In Limine and recorded in France whereas the four latter tracks are recorded in Italy. They had a guest flautist in both gigs. The recording quality is good but not anything really spectacular. It does have that real live feel which I appreciate most in live albums. There is some improvisation as well, which is also very appreciated.

Of the In Limine tracks the best ones are "In Limine" and "Orizzonte Degli Eventi" which are in my opinion the best tracks also in the studio album. The highlight track of the debut album is "Macinaaqua, Macinaluna". It is the most powerful track in this live album in my opinion. Overall, the song selection is very well selected and representative of their first two albums.

Conclusion: Great live album and a good investment if you like this group.
