2 stars I think this is an interesting document of Gentle Giant live, when the band was fading out. Most songs came from the much hated "Civilian" album, which is, IMHO, one of the first prog-metal albums in all time (which doesn't save it; "Civilian" is a boring, uninspired record). The sound quality is poor, but this doesn't mean that "The Last Steps" is inaudible. The major problem is the band's performance; they sound tired, sometimes seems they're fulfilling contractual obligations. But the packaging is good, and "Memories of Old Days" is always a pleasure to listen to. If you are a GG collector, you must have this album; if you're not, there's a plenty of official great GG live recordings at CD shops ("Playing the Fool" is, BTW, the best of it all).
