3 stars Now out of print, this "Official Live Bootleg" can still be downloaded at Echolyn's website.

As a live album, this is not bad. It does cover just about every stage of the band's career up until Mei. The sound quality is very good, but not spectacular, but at least the crowd has the good sense to keep quiet during the music. The banter on the album provides some interesting insights into the meaning and creation of some of the songs, but at times it goes on a bit too long and becomes tedious.

The highlight of this disk is actually the entire second CD. The performance of the fifty minute epic, Mei is great.

While this is a nice set to own, I believe that this band is deserving of a better produced live recording.
