2 stars Sushi is considered an art form. It is elegantly arranged to enhance it's simplicity, and natural beauty. Making sushi is easy, but most people prefer to leave it to the hands of the experienced sushi-chef. Fresh fish that's eaten raw must be prepared from fish that's not been out of the water for more than 24 hours, and must be properly chilled.

Does this intro apply to this live album from Fish? Yes, i think so. the music played is rather simple in structure which enhances the natural beauty of the played songs, and left in the capable hands of the band, and the experienced chef. Fish pulls off a great live show, brilliantly he plays the audience to participate in the singing, he sweps them up to a point the audience almost take over the show, with a football anthemic chant, fabulously picked up by the band, who just go along for the ride.

The songs on this liveset are taken from his first three studio albums, and some Marillion songs are played aswell, also the formerly unreleased track Poet's Moon is played, actually a highlight for me, since I didn't know that song prior to this purchase. Fish takes the time in between the songs to tell some short storie's including "The Harold" which is a dance he learned where you can dance while safe-guarding your beer, but most fans already know he has a nice sense of humour.

It's a nice live-set, but i think at this point of his solo carreer Fish has been a little too long out of the water, only to be thrown back with the release of "Raingods with zippo's". Though I like this live show, I am hesitating in recommending it. So it's a nice show, but only for fans of Fish I think. i'll reward it with two stars, but don't be surprised if you like it when you listen it yourself.

If you like Fish, try Sushi, if you don't like Fish stay away from it.
