4 stars Kamelot is in fine form here. The song selection is largely from the last two studio CDs, Epica and The Black Halo. Kahn proves he can hit (most of) the high notes and the unique quality of his voice gives each sone it's signiture sound when live. He is aided by a few backup singers which let Kamelot reproduce the haunting quality of the new material.

The guitar and bass are mixed well and everyone is very tight. The drum solo is short, in my opinion the drums in the songs are more interesting and impressive. Maybe I just like their rhythm section alot.

The keyboard solo is piano or, "enhanced" piano for the most part. Don't think Dream Theater here. It helps add to the mood of the album.

This band is showing that they are getting better. The keyboard player recently "officially" joined the group and they sound like they have been playing together a long time. The crowd noise is not excessive on this one, actually it doesn't sound like the crowd is that huge.

This is a great intro to Kamelot and functions well as a Greatest Hits. It also proves these guys are at the top of their game. Based on the strength of the CD, I plan to buy the DVD.
