5 stars Before I even listened to this album Bonnek told me i'd give it 5 stars. I kind of thought to myself : "There's no way, now that you've given me these high expectations". Then I checked out some information about it and noticed it was a live album from 2002. I mean how good could this band be at this point in their careers, lets face it the studio albums leading up to this were suspect at best. Then I see that Arthur Brown is singing on several tracks. What ?! Hmmm well maybe this will be special. It turns out that this is without a doubt the best live album i've heard from the band. It's shocking how great this band sounds on here.

I understand it was recorded late in the tour so they were firing on all cylinders that's for sure. And Arthur Brown absolutely kills on vocals. He sounds like Dio a lot, that's how powerful his voice is. They even play one of his songs called "Time Captives" from the "Journey" album under his band's name ARTHUR BROWN'S KINGDOM COME. It's cool to that when the band members speak between songs their voices echo.

At 74 minutes I usually complain about the length but honestly from beginning to end this album makes me so proud to be a HAWKWIND fan. It would be impossible for me to pick out my three favourite tracks, they're all amazing. Thanks Bonnek.
