3 stars This is a very special live album and a long time favorite. The LP version has some fantastic artwork which is sadly being lost on the CD version. This album is the best ever argument for LPs in the LPs vs CDs argument.

The music is lush pomp pop-prog with plenty of keyboards. Sax and guitars is added to the mix. I cannot compare SUPERTRAMP to any other bands I know. They are unique and very 1970s. The music is pretty good throughout. The live feeling is most definate there. I am not a big fan of this band though. I hardly know their studio albums. But the music here seems well rehearsed. The vocals is a bit special and takes time to get used to. But it works in this type of music. Pomp-pop is probably the best label on this album, although it has some prog rock influences too. The excellent songs here are Breakfast In America, Crime Of The Century and School. The rest of the songs are good and I tend to regard these 90 minutes as one piece of music instead of single out one or two songs. This is just a very good live album, from cover to the music. I regard it as an almost essential live album although this band is not one of my favorite bands.
