2 stars This folk rock country band went to one of the prettiest cities on this planet to record a live album. And the result is very good............if you are into folk rock country.

For those of us who are into progressive rock, this is an album easily sidestepped. With good reasons that is. Although the music is pretty good and the sound is surprisingly good, the music here is minimalistic. It is mostly done by accoustic guitars and vocals. A violin and a flute sometimes chip in. But the main thing here is Magna Carta's interaction with the lively and more than up for it audience. As a live album, this is the real thing. Which makes this a charming album.

Quality wise, I am not that charmed with the minimalistic music here. The music kind of turn too much into country & western. At this album; Magna Carta is more like a country band than a folk band.

There is only one song here who has any relevanse to PA and that is the twelve minutes long Lord Of The Ages opus. This is a pretty good, beautiful song drenched in a keltic sounscape. That is the only song of any interest here. But this is still a charming live album.
