4 stars This CD EP contains some very nice live material from Anekdoten 1990's era. For example the version of "Karelia" is here extraordinary powerful, much better than on the "Vemod" album. It's mellotron coda really reaches the dramatic genius of human experience. "A Way of Life" sounds as an improvisation, and I believe there are some kind of frippertonics used on this piece, strengthening the band's fascination with King Crimson as an innovator. Two first tracks are fine also, but these mentioned latter one's makes this collectible interesting musically. Not probably the best record as first introduction to the band, but warmly recommended for those who like the band.
