2 stars This album is the almost perfect companion of "Live In New York".

Almost because three tracks ("That's Life", "Show Me The Way" and "King Of Twillight") are featured on both albums; which is a bit weird since they come out from the same concert.

I quite liked the rockier approach for most of the songs featured on "Live..." and the same feeling of course applies to this "More Live..."). Very average original songs like "Astral Man" or "Show Me The Way" are much more pleasant.

Their epic "Remember The Future" gets almost the same treatment that on "Sunday Night At The London Roundhouse". Second part is shortened and the number is played on its rocking side; which I prefer in comparison with the funky beat available on the studio version. I just feel a pity that the whole lenght of the song (OK it's almost thirty-six minutes) has not been recorded for this live rendition. The best option for this epic would be to have "Part 1" from the Roudhouse and "Part Two" from "More Live..." to have the most of it.

"More Live..." is a bit weaker than "Live..." IMO. In the meantime there is a double CD regrouping both original albums; but this newer version is more expensive than the two separate ones together...Anyway, their best live album is the one from the Roundhouse IMO.

Two stars for this one.
