I saw that show in Mount Clemens (near Detroit) in June 1999. That was a huge trip; I actually met Pär Lindh and the band, helped them to arrange the stage and watched one of the best show I've seen... in front of an amazed mid-empty crowd which had never seen anything like that before. I was all alone right at the front, in my bubble, moving like hell on those great songs. That was an amazing show, well worth days of hitchhiking across Canada and all the trouble crossing the borders...

Actually as much as I enjoy Mundus Imcompertus and Gothic Impressions studio album, I consider this live album to be even better in many aspects, particularly in the voice of Magdalena Hagberg, which is great. This woman is so amazing... I remember meeting her and she had this presence on the stage. The fact that she was singing the songs left a strong impression on me.

As for Jerusalem, I am sorry for ELP fans (which I am by the way) but this is probably even better than the original. If ELP had been around in 1999 making prog music, that would be how Jerusalem would sound like. I was literally blown away when they played that song.

If you like Emerson Lake & Palmer and progressive metal or even classic music, you will enjoy this album. Highly recommanded; probably one of the best live albums I ever listened to.
