5 stars We can call it a prog legacy

This album may be the real best album rather thatn their official best album "Chapters" because of the song selections, what are missing in this album are famous Karelia and Nucleus only which they played in this concert recorded to this album. Yes, I was there when they recorded the play. Therefore, I can guarantee that the recording and mixing tech is so nice that the sound on the album is exactly duplicating what was heard in the concert hall. The technicians did excellent job.

As you know, Anekdoten was inspired by King Crimson and thus their music is very close to that of KC naturally. But the point is that their music is more emotional and they are on the side of KC's Epitaph, Exiles, and Starless. This means that Anekdoten has enormous talent in composition. Storm of mellotron is only a tool for them to enhance their melodic aspect. I love their music simply because the melody is unforgettably beautiful.
