Review by Warthur
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars This is a live set from Current 93's June 2005 visit to Canada - a return engagement following the previous year's gigs as recorded on How I Devoured Apocalypse Balloon. The set list is largely reconfigured this time, however, thanks in part to David Tibet and his collaborators (including special guest Bonnie "Prince" Billy) gearing up to bring together the project's landmark studio album of the mid-2000s, Black Ships At the Sky. The raucous version of the title track from here makes you feel like the Black Ships truly have come to consume our universe.

It's a very good live set, though unfortunately David Tibet's microphone cuts out at points, marring what would have been an excellent collection.
