4 stars This recording was made at Cadogan Hall. London on two nights. They were some technical difficulties with the sound system. The band didn't check every part of the venue which result in poor sound quality for those who were in the balcony. The band wasn't aware of this until a man from upstairs got angry and started shouting at the band. If the experience of a live show is better than watching the same concert on TV, this is not the case here at least for those who were on the balcony for the first night! The concert shows some basic visuals with projections on a big screen but we can enjoy the amazing surround audio and a style of music that offer some soaring epics, some smooth twists with some classical and folk colors. The music is filling up your room with the vocals, the drums, and the brass section. I was impressed with the drum playing of Nick D'Virgilio. The lead singer is a lot similar to Peter Gabriel's voice and played a big role in the whole music. The setlist is made mostly with the last 3 albums and you won't find a lot of boring moments in this 2 hours and a half concert. Some have criticized the picture quality while this could be true on some shots, the overall picture is nice to me. Recommended!
