SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Trifles And Pandemonium was a special live album released by A.C.T after playing selected dates throughout 2014, two of which I got to experience first-hand. The set consisted of a chronological retrospective of each studio album, starting with Today's Report and bookended by tracks from Circus Pandemonium. Hence the the title Trifles And Pandemonium and there were definitely quite a few trifles along in this setlist. Some of the highlights are Waltz With Mother Nature, A Supposed Tour, Svetlana, Manipulator, Call In Dead and a spectacular performance of A Mother's Love!

The live recording was done in a barn in Tyringe, in southern Sweden, where the band rigged cameras and lights to make a professionally shot and recorded live performance. The performances were captured between 6-8th of June, 2014. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to attend the recording session but, judging from the final product, it must have been an amazing experience.

I own copies of both the video and the audio recordings and enjoy both of them. The audio version reminds me of the two great concerts that I got to see with A.C.T in 2014, while the video portion gives a great visual supplement to the experience. To be honest, I don't watch the video portion as often but the audio recoding is still played by me a few times every year. The energy that the band delivers in the live versions of these tracks is even better than the studio recordings and I'm amazed of the level of musicianship that A.C.T show in each and every one of their live shows to this day.
