4 stars Well, what can I add to all the other enthusiastic reviews in front of me?

Steve Hackett is one of the best guitarists ever and this double live CD is still witnessing his old grandeur ("Firth Of Fifth", "Los Endos" and "Spectral Mornings", regardless "Ace Of Wands" and Blood On The Rooftops", whose execution is perfect as usual, represent the best tunes here in my opinion, but in general the music quality is always high!!).

Nevertheless, in the same time, I think that the distance between the old tracks with Genesis or his early band of the eighties and the recent albums is quite evident, but nevermind!!

His music is still shining nowadays and I'm so sorry that until now I couldn't see him sharing the same stage with some exceptional artists like Maurizio Colonna (such a fantastic guitarist of classical music, who performed some music projects with him) or once again my favourite guitarist of the melodic prog scene, Andy Latimer from Camel...anyway, coming back to the present live cd dated 2010, it's essential- being one of the best live performances from this creative artist and- by considering his long magnificent career- that's enough, after all!
