Review by ZowieZiggy
2 stars Fish has been very prolific in terms of live albums.

When an artist releases almost double as many live works than studio counterparts, some of the former ones can only be duplicates or less interesting recordings.

And it is the case of this "Krakow Electric" concert. If you compare it with his previous live one (In Utrecht), there are obvious lack of complicity between the crowd and the big man. But he is at home in The Netherlands (still today). The positive side of this of course, is that we have less karaoke sessions during the set.

This concert was part of the "Yin & Yang" tour. These two albums were re-recordings of existing Fish and genuine "Marillion" songs. Just prior to this, Fish did release a full original studio work ("Suits") from which several songs are taken and to complete the set a couple of oldies are also included.

What I'm missing here is the passion usually felt during his concerts. There are little enchantment here. "Black Canal", "The Emperor's Song" clearly highlight this.

Some songs save the album, like the wonderful "Lady Let It Die" as well as "Vigil". Most of the genuine "Marillion" songs are not really well performed. Except the emotive and extended "Lavender". And what to say about the fifteen minutes version of "Lucky" (including the band presentation)? Pointless, I guess. And the medley is not memorable either (over twelve minutes).

It is only a recording for die-hard Fish's fans. As such, two stars.
