1 stars Well:

1st of all, i want to make a comment for the band's definition as Canterbury Scene.

This band has nothing to do with Canterbury Scene, simple coz its a Dutch band, and has no relation with the Canterbury city/territory/musicians/bands etc. Because a band has a similar sound with_say_Caravan, this isnt a criterion to label this band as Canterbury Scene.

And now about the album: After 3 listenings and after seen the 4.20 rating, i couldnt resist!

One of the worst lives i heard ever! Bands like this gave a bad name to prog rock. If you never listened any prog rock album and you start with this, you'll never listen prog rock again.

The compositions are boring (the best of them) and silly/pointless/ridiculous (the worst of them). Although this is a 2000 live recording, the keyboards' sound is like a home-keyboard from '90s. You must try really VERY hard to make so poor and non-professional sound from any synth from this era, but it seems that Mr Robert Jan Stips is expert on this.

Unfortunately he is expert only on this, coz his playing on keyboards is so typical, dry and nerveless. Few times i had the impression that he run out of tempo. No comments for his vocals, and also no comments for the drummer Marco Vrolijk. Amateur is the right word for him (but he isnt the only amateur here....)

The 1st disc is better, but the 2nd disc it'll make you to bang your head on the wall. This record is my only SUPERSISTER record, thanks God... And again thanks God coz i have this live in MP3 format, this mean i got it for free. (Thats why we need MP3, we can save a lot of money avoiding to buy albums like this one)

I dont know how they sound in their studio albums (im sure they sound better) but in this live they sound at least amateurs. If you want to listen Dutch progrock, ignore this joke and listen the Great FOCUS. Quality band even today.

Rating: 1 star.

And this coz i rate this album as a prog rock album, in a progrock site. If i was in a prog-circus site, i'd rate it 4 stars.
