5 stars Fantastic live album by the symph masters from Hungary. These guys are some of the most talented in the business and they pull off their sound, mini-orchestration and prog, with flare and dynamicism. Right off the bat, 'Viaduct' is in your face, bombastic in an ELP way and rocks! In fact, if you're a fan of ELP, you'll love these guys and they will do a killer King Crimson when need be, (last track is the classic KC song 'Starless' with John Wetton on vocals and bass!). It's when you listen to the monumental 31:32 minute track, 'Conclusion' that you'll realize how fantastic these guys are. It's a tour-de-force that has to be heard. My only complaint is the spoken-word music-less track, 'Radio Rarotonga'. Why they would do something like that in a live setting is beyond me. Sure, it works on a concept album, but live? Naaa! But that's a minor quibble. This is one of the best live albums of symphonic prog recorded in the 90's and a must have. 4.5 stars for sure.
