3 stars Same old cliche - slightly better delivery.

One can easily reach saturation point with TD over their zillions of releases, few of which stand out. Lets face it, who could write a review on every sequenced piece that sounds just like the one before and remain original?

I am less than half-way through their official material, searching for the odd, memorable tune - with little success. That's not to mention the TD Fan Club live material that may take some months to absorb.

This performance is notable - if only because Jerome Froese was held back, preventing him to turn it into - yet another - Techno "offering".

Linda Spa on saxes plays well, but still fails to engage my attention. I just don't enjoy her approach. Meanwhile, hired hand on guitar Zlatko Perica steals the show - when he is permitted to shine.

Lacking depth, still a reasonable performance, but still very, very far from the band's true potential. 3, perhaps 3.5 at best.

A question. Why would any respectable artist keep releasing sub-standard material, knowing that it eats away their fan base? Still, this piece is better than some before, but great it isn't.

BORA | 3/5 |
