4 stars Probably the best MOODY BLUES Blues output since 1972. There are no new songs but the result is miles above the average and give a glimpse of the gigs provided by the band. The score is a compilation of hits from the 60s till the 90s mixed in a way to form an homogeneous work.

THE MOODY BLUES, with hundreds of miles on the road, know wisely how to captivate the audience even when it is compounded mostly by old fans (which is the case here); the same happens for someone who is watching the DVD. The beginning is partially cold but the temperature is getting higher and higher (in fact 'Higher and higher' and 'The voice' are songs missing in the score) until reaching metal melting point at the encore with 'Ride my see-saw'.

The best points at least for a prog-fan are the well-known songs from the real prog (or proto-prog) phase of MB: 'Tuesday afternoon', 'Nights in white satin', 'Legend of a mind' and 'Question', where they got the most beautiful moment of the show, a perfect interaction with the audience. Even songs of their pop-rock phase like 'Your wildest dreams' and 'I know you're out there somewhere' work pleasantly.

An excellent work though not a masterpiece; deservedly a 4-star production.

4 stars I first heard this album some years back on a PBS showing of the DVD and thought it was a good concert. Almost a decade later, I just acquired a copy of the CD and was pleasantly surprised to find that my first impression of the 2000 concert at the Royal Albert Hall was correct; this is one of the ...

4 stars Excellent! Justin Hayward does this really cool guitar riff in "Singer in A Rock and Roll Band" that I haven't heard before. The sound quality is excellent and the version of "English Sunset" is flawless. ... (read more)
