5 stars A must.

This was hard to find, but ka-ching at and I finally got my copy of this long-waited show. What to expect? The songs are done perfectly, and some got a little face-lift or some tabasco on: Incubus rocks more than on Fugazi and Assassing is even more foot-stomping. It always amaze me how the musicianship of Marillion is high, really high. I watched many prog shows and I can tell you that from the start, Marillion was above and beyond most bands on stage. They meant serious buisness, only topped by the Police or Genesis at such a young age. These guys are more than tight, they are a whole body moving and evolving with grace under pressure.

I can underline the word pressure because there's a LOT of people at Loreley Germany! And more than some hardcore fans at that! Some guys are dressed like the cover of the single Assassing, some like Misplaced Childhood and some others like Script from a Jester's Tear. Quite the colorful bunch! It showed how big and strong this band was 20 years ago.

The band: Kelly is quiet, Rothery is at his best, Trewavas jumps, wiggle and run as always, Mosley is shy but tight and Fish of course is again the perfect jester: kicks and punches the air, runs, screams, and gives the impression the band was in la-la land.

This is a very complete testament of a fantastic era.
