5 stars I find myself in a bit of a difficult situation here. Whilst rather bemused by the band's attempts to practically copy the Pierre Moerlen's Gong approach, there are times when they get things right. This live performance is one of those moments.

Opinions differ on live v. studio material. Here the live stuff by this band appears to be far superior to their studio outputs. Not that there is anything markedly different, but one can detect the excitement and adrenalin rush in a one take, no overdubs delivery - and it works miracles.

There are moments when the music approaches Brand X territory, albeit not with the same complexity. In short, a very pleasing performance that PMG, or Jazz-Rock fans could immediately identify with. Easily 4.5 as the best Gongzilla release.
