4 stars Here is, between the floods of Dream Theater and Franz Zappa reviews, an amazing, often overlooked progrock album. All eleven songs on this live record are based upon the sparkling chemistry between the different musical styles from six outstanding musicians.The one moment the focus is on wonderful, very moving electric guitar play from Phil Manzanera ("Diamond head"), the other moment, you're blown away by agressive bass work and cynical vocals ("Miss Shapiro"). The cover "You really got me" (from The Kinks) has been given an extra dimension, it sounds very lush and elaborated. The final song "Third uncle" is a very dynamic goodbey, what a rhythm-section featuring Simon Phillips and Bill MacGormick (also vocals). The contribution on keyboards from Eno and Francis Monkman are often exciting and Lloyd Watson (also vocals) delivers some great slide guitar. AN EXCELLENT ALBUM!
