Review by Greger
4 stars As always when THRESHOLD is releasing a new album, there is also a new line-up. This time it's a live album, which is showing a heavier side of THRESHOLD than on the studio albums. The drummer Jay Micciche has a heavy way of playing, and that is one of the reasons. Usually it would be a strange move to release a live album with only two albums in the back-catalogue, but the many line-up changes and the development in style is justifying this. You can hear it very clear especially in the tracks that are originating from the debut album "Wounded Land". The CD is recorded during their tour that went throughout 1994 and 1995, and included shows with MAGNUM, PARADISE LOST, WHITESNAKE and DREAM THEATER. This album may be a good introduction for new listeners, but also a great album for the old fans.

3 stars This is THRESHOLD's third release, and their first live album.They have a new drummer for this one and it's kind of interesting hearing Glynn Morgan singing the three songs that Damian Wilson originally sang.

"A Tension Of Souls" is pretty faithful to the original with a slow and heavy intro.The song picks up tempo 3 minutes in as riffs arrive. Glynn's vocals on this song remind me of Jon Oliva's, kind of rough. "Sanity's End" is all about the vocals. I like the mellow interlude 2 1/2 minutes in.This is one song I can hear Wilson's vocals in my mind, and Glynn is really faithful to his style. The synths sound great, as does the soaring guitar 6 minutes in. A minute later they just let it rip ! Nice keyboard solo followed by some biting guitar.

"Innocent" opens with reserved vocals and melancholic guitar melody. Vocals get passionate as drums come in. A blistering guitar solo 3 minutes in.This becomes a powerful song and the vocals have a lot to do with that. "Surface To Air" opens with soft vocals and piano, as a full sound comes in before 2 minutes. Some fantastic guitar 5 minutes in. "Paradox" has an uptempo chorus and some screaming guitar 7 minutes in.

This is a good live record but most of my favourites from the first two albums are missing. Still, the crowd is very into this concert and the band played extremely well.

3 stars Delicious!

Livedelica is a brief live album recorded during the short-lived Glynn Morgan-period, just after the release of the band's second studio album (Psychedelicatessen). This little live album features two songs from Psychedelicatessen (the sole studio album featuring Morgan on lead vocals) and three songs from the excellent debut Wounded Land. All five songs are great and Morgan does a fine performance on the older songs that originally featured Damian Wilson's amazing voice (Wilson was soon to return to the band for the recoding of the band's third album Extinct Instinct). With just five tracks the running time still exceeds 50 minutes and makes for a satisfying live experience.

Fans of the band ought to be very happy that this album exists and gives us a rare glimpse into that often overlooked period in the band's history. Still, I suppose many would also agree that after only two studio albums, releasing a live album was slightly premature. As much as I like Psychedelicatessen and Glynn Morgan's vocals, I think it would have been more appropriate to record a live album after the release of the brilliant next album Extinct Instinct (which is my favourite by the band). It is funny that Damian Wilson has joined and re-joined the band several times and recorded as many as three studio albums with the group, yet none of the band's live albums feature Wilson on vocals. I hope that they will make up for that some time soon now that Wilson is once again the singer of this fine band.

Livedelica is not essential, but it is a nice addition and an enjoyable listen

3 stars This live EP is highly recommended to all the Threshold fans (the others go buy the studio albums first!) since it shows the band at its first peak, recorded during the german tour supporting Dream Theater. I love the way Glynn Morgan sings the songs from the first album (to be honest: I prefer ... (read more)
