4 stars WAKING THE DEAD Excellent Sound!!!!! Were is the other part of the concert........?

Not for easy listeners or any other amateur in rock music this guys are one of Sweden finest exports ever... After the eminent disappearing of ANGLAGARD probably ANEKDOTEN is the best progressive active band in the world borned in early 90s. Since their first release in 1993... Keyboardist, mellotronist Anna Sofi Dahlberg enhanced the other 3 male efforts to turn their music in hyms of what progressive rock can give to the peopleīs soul. Anekdoten is very emotive in all of their compositions combined with a lot of volcanic scandinavian energy and sadness. Recorded again in Japan, their second live album has two inedit tracks "Moon of Mars" and "This too will Pass" as well as a long awaited twelve minutes version of "Sad Rain" only available before on Vemodīs Japanesse edition. Maybe is a little short for the fans...Christ!!!! this album is 78 minutes long and passes to fast.And at the end of the day, Waking the Dead it`s a great album with a seductive selection in tracks dispositive and the voice of Nicklas Barker remains intact after 12 years since ANEKDOTENīs Debut. But i`m still wondering....were is the rest of the concert????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
