3 stars No doubt that this 2-disc is a comprehensive look at the Fish-Marillion-era featuring their best material. Some tracks are even more powerful and compelling than the studio- versions but I miss the typical emotional (from warm and moving to ebullient) atmosphere from the many early-Marillion concerts I attended. To me this double live album was a bit disappointing experience and I had to rely on bootlegs. Marillion got the attention from EMI because of the large cult following during their concerts and they were a perfect live act. Fortunately in the meantime some very good live releases (on CD and DVD) has been released but it will always remain a question to me why Marillion came with this flat sounding live 2-album.
