4 stars If you listen to this album not as a recording of a music concert but as a dadaist performance, then maybe you will be able to appreciate it. That's really what I kept coming back to; the most accurate description of the album's attitude is dadaist . Out of the 16 tracks (taken from various SGM concerts), there are only a handful of actual songs that have appeared on studio albums. The rest is a mixture of improv, anecdotes, pseudo-intellectual tidbits, and insanity. If it were only for the music, this album might earn 2 stars because of the amount of "real" SGM songs and the recording quality which is not excellent. However, I think that people should listen to this, even if they hate it (and it certainly would not be difficult to have that reaction) because here is something unique. I really have never heard or seen another performance like this anywhere else. You might love or hate what you learn, but most likely it will be a combination of the two.The key is an open mind.

Rating: 7/10
