5 stars This is an excellent acoustic live album. Most songs sounds to my ears much better than on the albums they belong. The band improvises very nicely around the original songs, they sound as they were new. Daniel shows onece more its incredible compositional and vocal talent ... The piano is also perfect on this album, very present. What I dislike on this album is the very quick revisiting (around one minute) of some tracks. I would have liked that they play a longer version of these tracks. For instance, "This heart of mine" ends when it becomes more interesting. Also the version of "Ashes" is the only track where I prefer the album version. I generally play the album by skipping all the mentionned tracks and it is a great experience.

My rating: 4.5 stars.
