Prog Leviathan
Prog Reviewer
3 stars High value live album by the most popular prog band in the world, showcasing a finely performed and energetic set of songs from a narrow segment of their work.

"Warszawa" begins with words just about everybody wishes they were hearing right now: "Live on stage... Porcupine Tree!" And off we go, getting things moving with a collection of highlights from "Stupid Dream" and "Lightbulb Sun". The band's playing is faultless here, with the production bringing out the best in their performances and the full depth of their live sound. There isn't much here that distinguishes them from their studio counterparts, save an enjoyable and robust energy which kicks a few them into high gear, such as "Slave Called Shiver" or "Last Chance...". Great stuff overall, but very limited because of the setlist, which takes few diversions from promoting what was, at the time, the band's newest material.

A good buy for fans of classic PT!
