3 stars A live recording of Mackenzie Theory's final concert before Rob Mackenzie left the country (on an arts fellowship). It's still in much the same vein as the earlier album - compositions based on fairly simple chord patterns, over which Mackenzie and Cleis Pearce jockey for position as frontliners. The main change is the addition of Peter Jones on electric piano - his presence frees up Mackenzie from needing to double in the accompanying role all the time, as well as providing an additional solo option at times (and his playing is generally more musical, if less energetic, than the established frontliners). The band has a new rhythm section as well - Paul Wheeler (ex Aztecs, no doubt relieved to be playing something more interesting than a thumped out version of Ooh Pah Doo Pah), and drummer Greg Sheehan. They make their presence felt in the grooving "C Thing" (featuring a solo from Sheehan) and "Supreme Love".
