4 stars Excellent live offering from the great Jadis. Although not recorded with the classic line (that included IQ members John Jowitt and Martin Orford), you hardly miss that at all. In fact, I like this CD a lot more than Live Outside (with Orford and Jowitt). Actually both new members Steve Hunt (bass) and Mike Torr (keyboards) have a similar style of playing of their precedents, which is no small feat, since it is very unlikely to see anyone steping into their shoes (but they did). I wonder where Gary Chandler found them...

Anyway, the recording sound is top notch, crystal and the band is absolutely superb on stage (Chandler in great form!). If you saw them playing live or on the View From Above DVD you know what I mean. The repertoire is very strong, drawn from their early best albums and including 3 tracks from their forthcoming studio CD Summersault (again the strongest cuts from this one too). The Daylight Fades version here is much better than the one recorded on the DVD (at least they played in full).

Their best live CD so far from one of the best neo prog bands of all time and quite superior to Alive Outside. If you like live albums, this one is highly recommended.
