4 stars Very strong live album. In my opinion, this is a record every rock-lover must hear for sure. The playing of members John McLaughlin, Jan Hammer, Jerry Goodman, Rick Laird and Billy Cobham is teriffic. So much power and virtuosity.. It's more exciting than the music on the previous albums, although this is more orientated on playing rough and fast than the previous one (Birds Of Fire) which was more orientated on melodic and compositional playing. Anyway, this is a must have because of the great excitement, instrumental climaxes (check the very fast and powerful sequence in the middle of "Trilogy" and the stunning part at 12 minutes on "Dream", no one beats this!) and good compositions too!

Also check out "The Lost Trident Sessions" for the very good (and way better sound-quality) studio-versions, discovered 25 years after this album!!
