4 stars The first live album from Klaus is quite challenging.

It is some king of mixed bag from the late seventies and offers several facets from the great man. It is true to say that there are golden moments in here.

The fantastic version of "Sense" (about fifty minutes) is just wonderful. Such a pleasure for any prog electronic lover (but not only I assume). The soundscapes are phenomenal, the melodies are HUGE, and the emotions are intense. Soooooo intense!

This piece of music is really to be related with the best of his studio work so far (and if you have read some reviews of mine about the great man, you might know that I am quite positive about his musical contribution). The great percussion work is also quite a positive add on to this glorious moment of prog.

This is of course the absolute highlight. The masterpiece of this live album and another masterpiece from his whole discography (but he already proposed lots of them).

This album could have been an extraordinary pleasure from start to finish. But unfortunately, there is "Dymagic" featured.

Lots of fans were quite sceptic about the collaboration between Klaus and Arthur Brown while they met for "Dune" (I'm one of that kind). I couldn't be thrilled with "Shadows of Ignorance" but what I have listened during "Dymagic" is all but magic.

It is of the same level than the weakest and infamous Schulze album so far: "Aphrica". This half an hour of schizophrenia, non-event item and indigestible partition can only lower my global rating. This part should have been skipped. I wonder why this was ever released, unless for contractual reasons. Anyway: it was a BIG mistake as far as I'm concerned.

As such, even if the great "Heart" starts as the wonderful "Invisible Limits" from whom you might know and "Bellistique" is quite alright, the upper limit of my rating is four stars. Seven out of ten really, because of the inhuman "Dymagic" that lasts for about thirty minutes!
