2 stars As Hifi-klubben says: "Bad sound kills great music".

This is a live recording that has the same quality as you would get if you recorded a concert with a telephone, standing in the audience. The sound quality is on a level that this album should never have been released at all. I can understand why this is released though, it's a long lost band that only released one proper album and here they are with a live recording, for the archives. It should have a warning sign on the cover "beware, bad soundquality".

The LP release is otherwise really good, lots of extra goodies thrown in. A nice booklet with pictures of the band, lyrics and with a japanese obi.

If you can get past the awful sound quality, it's easy to hear how great this band really was. The songs are long and have all the signatures of great music, great melodies, great chops and lots of twists and turns. Two songs that I was not familiar with before turned out to be really great composition-wise. The band have all the marks of fellow north american bands like Pentwater, Mirthrander etc with a very heavy leaning towards Genesis.

The music: great! The sound: awful!

Decide for yourself.
