4 stars An energetic performance, top quality sound, well shot video, but only four songs??? Damn shame.

Well, for someone who isn't likely to be able to see them live any time soon, this is a real treat. All of their studio albums to date are solid and they put on a set with two songs from their latest, Adverse Camber, along with one each from Dark Angel and Awakening.

The band lineup has changed slightly, with a new keyboard player and drummer stepping in, as well as the addition of another woman vocalist, Maria Owen, to back up Rachel.

They do make up for the short set with a couple of "acoustic" versions of songs performed as a warm up on stage the night before their official High Voltage festival appearance. Then there's the amusing answers to questions from the fan section and a couple of guys from the band doing a bungie ball ride at the festival. Disposable bits to be sure, but hey, might as well fill out the DVD. Still worth having even if there's only 6 songs. I eagerly await a full length live DVD at some point in the future. Perhaps with your next album guys?
