3 stars The best release of Twelfth Night's Geoff Mann era is without a doubt Live and Let Live, documenting the two farewell shows for Geoff at the Marquee. With a track list drawing on their best material, it's an entertaining enough listen, though Mann's vocal approach still rubs me the wrong way. It's not the lyrical content that irks me so much as the delivery - Geoff feels the need to tell us that war is bad and love is good, as though these were sentiments which would be novel and new to us, and chooses to enlighten us to these facts in as didactic and heavy- handed a way as he can. Furthermore, there's a fine line between Gabriel-like theatricality and embarrassingly corny whimsy, and Mann crosses it too often for my liking. Still, I concede that this is a matter of personal tastes and fans of early neo-prog would probably find a lot to like here.
