3 stars This is a good live release from UNDER THE SUN. This recording was taken from their NEARfest performance in 2001.These guys play so well that there is not a lot of difference between this live record and their studio release.

They did add a new song called "Souljourner" that would have fit well on their studio record. One song that does sound better on this live release over the studio record is "The Time Being" thanks to some amazing guitar. The bass guitar comes through clearer as well on this recording.

I believe they save the best two songs for last. "Breakwater" has such a catchy melody after 5 minutes, and the piano is incredible. And the final tune "From Henceforth Now And Forever (Ps.124)" features some scorching guitar, as well as a great bass solo followed by a ripping guitar solo.

If you have their studio record, I would think twice about getting this one. Having said that I highly recommend you get one or the other.
