Review by ZowieZiggy
2 stars This live album was recorded during their second concert played at Forest National (one of the largest concert hall in Belgium). Obviously on February 14 (1981). They were the first Belgian rock band to play there. Sound is not really great to say the least (too much distortion during guitar parts).

Fortunately, only two songs from their upcoming album are featured. Of which a good version of "Lay Down".

The core of this album comes from "New Lines" with six songs. But to have integrated "Relax" in their live set is quite difficult to imagine. And the karaoke styled Playboy is not the greatest song from their repertoire either.

Still, there are some good moments during this live set like the very good rock "Turn Off" and one of their best song ever : "After The Crop", even if this version is probably too hard in comparison with its studio counterpart. And I have always have liked "Champagne In Amsterdam".

Their hits "Over The Hill" and the audience fave "Fly" are their best known ones and the latter is still played during their concerts. Twice at least (and I have even experienced it three times).

"St. Valentines Day" has never seen the light of a remastered version (and I can understand why.). Two stars.
