5 stars Yes - this one is just another great double-LP live album by Magma - yet with Didier Lockwood on violin, Beniot Widemann on keyboards and Klaus Blasquiz on vocals... and includes only two longish compositions "Mekanik Destruktiw Kommand÷h" and "Theusz Hamtaahk" - but very fine live versions of those. Fortunately I have had a wanderful chance to be in Magma's concert in Strasbourg in June 2003. So they performed "overview" of this "Theusz Hamtaahk" and by this was my first experience to hear this tune (my real fave was "Zess" there). But - both live versions of them - "Mekanik Destruktiw Kommand÷h" and "Theusz Hamtaahk" on this double LP - are very delightful, powerful and hypnotic - this is undoubtfully Magma at their best!!!
