3 stars This album is much more an EP than a real studio album. It contains a cover, two new songs, a re-recorded version of an old song and six live songs.

The Gary Moore cover "Over The Hills And Far Away" and "10th Man Down" are ok songs, but definitely not the best stuff the band has done. The ballad "Away" is really great, like every ballad done by Nightwish. "Astral Romance" is one of my least favorite track, and sure the new version isn't that better than the original. The live tracks are classic Nightwish tracks, but like almost every live album, the sound is pretty poor compared to what the studio tracks can render.

Rating: 72/100
