Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
4 stars This is a fantastic album of mostly live songs. The three songs which aren't live are all created and performed by Nick Didkovsky's DrNerve.hsml software. These songs actually sound remarkably similar to Frank Zappa's Synclavier work on "Jazz From Hell". The live tracks are mostly from the first two studio albums, "Out To Bomb Fresh Kings" and "Armed Observation".

The recording quality is good, but not great for a live album. The horns and vibes are very clear sounding, but the guitar and drums sonetimes get lost under the rest of the band. The song selection is perfect. It contains all of my favorites from the first two albums. I especially like hearing "Mister Stiff Fries A Dozen", "Unna" and "Spy Boy".

This is a band that should be better known.
