Review by erik neuteboom
4 stars "Ladies and gentlemen, direct from Hungary...SOLARIS!" That was the enthousiastic announcement, made during the Progfest 1995, the annual progrock festival that also featured Ars Nova and White Willow that year. Solaris performed very well and delivered an outstanding gig, I wish I had been there, what an unique and compelling progrock sound!

This sound is based upon splendid interplay between a classical flute, fiery electric guitar and sensational keyboard work. The shorter songs often deliver a vey propulsive rhythm with spectacular Minimoog flights, swirling flute and powerful electric guitar, the interplay between these instruments sounds very exciting. The longer compositions alternates between mellow (often classical flute and soaring keyboards) and bombastic (stunning soli on the Minimoog and fierysoli on the electric guitar). The strong classical undertone from Solaris is emphasized by work on the piano, flute and acoustic guitar. I'm very impressed by the skills from these musicans and their dynamic and varied sound, featuring many pleasant musical ideas.

This live 2-CD is a great introduction to their unique sound, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

4 stars This is my latest Live album i purchase, ad im very happy with it, i have another 3 Solaris´albums, and thats why i already knew the most of the songs in this concert, when i put it on my cd player, it was a great experience, an excellent sound, strong keyboard and flute arrangements, as we know Solaris doesnt have vocals, is an instrumental band, and that´s the beauty of this band, we can find here an awesome musical skill, guitars , keyboards and the amazing sound of Kollar Attilla´s flute makes this concert a great experience, they were in Baja Prog here in Mexico, i couldn´t go, and i really wish to see them one day, it would be great, for all these facts im going to give ti 4 stars. Beautiful!
