4 stars This cd/dvd combo is from a show recorded April 12, 2014 at De Boerdrerij, Zoetermeer. The dvd has 5 more tracks then the cd. It's start strongly with the dark song "Tick Tock" part one, and immediately we can appreciate the clear production of the music. This band has the reputation to make music by creating intimate and electric atmosphere without displaying some complex time signatures. There is some recurring theme throughout those songs and a love for exotic music and folk music like the funny klezmer part in the song "The Wizard of Altai Mountains" and in the song "Golem" where we find a short escape to oriental music. "Winter is Never" is where the band slow things down and let the crowd sing before introducing the musicians. But things get back to the dark stuff slowly with "Dingler's Horses" that display some nice drums patterns and a heavy ending. My favorite track of all was from the album "Missa Atroppos", the song "Vera" with a beautiful melody. From that same album "Splendid Isolation" is another dark track with good atmosphere and a big crescendo with some David Gilmour style of guitar sound. This band succeed to create some emotional music with subtle arrangements that come also from the drums and the piano. All this music is enhanced by the nice voice of Jan Henrik Ohme. I recommended this cd/dvd for fans of Marillion late era and you won't resist to put the dvd on your player when you know that there is a lot more material than the cd.
