3 stars The so far last (final ?) live album from these Dutch masters of symphonic prog/folk rock.

And a different kettle than their other live albums. This one is much more laid back and somber than the other live albums. The instrumentation is down to the bare basics and the dynamics is on a different level again. Even a great song like Variations on A Lady has lost a lot of it's life.

That is my problem here. Flairck is fantastic and can blow any band - Yes, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Dream Theater, Rush, Metallica & Co - cleanly of the stage with their vitality and musicality. And those who doubts me (or laughs out loud/requires medical attention due to strained tummy muscles) ; check out the other live albums. But they left the pulse and vitality at home. What's left is a band working on 2/3 of their capacity and perhaps creating a new musical expression by that. But I want the good old Flairck back from the other live albums. Maybe that is not possible. But this live album is not Flairck at their best, I am afraid. It is still a good live album though and is recommended. All Flairck albums is recommended, in my humble views. Flairck is a truly fantastic band, in my anything but humble opinion.
