This live recording was initially released to benefit Mick Karn's cancer treatment, but sadly the ex-Japan bassist has since passed away.

The Good: I was particularly happy to get hold of this after the disappointment of missing out on an Anaesthetize box set. The set list is similar, focusing on their heavier era and features no material prior to 1999's Stupid Dream. Whilst I would have quite liked to hear Prodigal, the inclusion of Drown With Me makes up for this and I honestly have no idea why it was left off In Absentia as it really is a top tune.

The Bad: The production is weak, especially considering Steven Wilson's track record, and does little to convey the energy of a Porcupine Tree live performance.

The Verdict: A nice little package, but doesn't come anywhere near to the quality of Coma Divine.

Starhammer | 3/5 |
