4 stars With 3 live tracks out of 5, this record is mainly for people who want to know how Marillion sounds live. Despite the sound of those 3 tracks is not crystal clear, like on the studio albums, Fish's theatrical lead vocals are very palpable, especially on "Fugazi" and "Script from a jester's tear". The last live track, "Kayleigh", has a pleasant live atmosphere, as reveals the responding crowd shouting "Kayleigh". The strongest track is definitely "Lady Nina", a pompous accessible track, having an almost perfect, very sustained and loud guitar solo. "Freaks" can also be heard on the "B-sides themselves" album. The album is very short, lasting around 30 minutes.

Rating: 4.5 stars
