4 stars This is the second part of the Circle´s live album series under same name. This is recorded from the band´s european tour 2015. It is recorded to 8- and 16-tracks, so the sound quality is really great. Also the covers are great including good pictures from the band´s live gig. As the first part, this is only vinyl release.

This live version of "Pharaoh Overlord"-albums "Koitto" is very near of studio version. Instead of the choir there are Mika´s vocals, also Mika is playing brass parts with his keyboards. Next is medley from two songs, "Imperiumi" and "Kävelen Luiden Päällä". The first is quite same as the studio version in their newest album, but shorter and not as tight played. As usual, Mika hadn´t had Finish lyrics that time so he sung English/German -sounding nonsense. The second has more complex rhythm as in the studio version, it also includes Mika´s vocals in the end of it. "Rakkautta Al Dente" is much longer than studio version. After verses and choruses it goes into really krauttrip with chaotic elements. The ending song "Point" is shorter than the version in "Rakennus"-live and not including the slower part.

This album is highly recommended with "Serpent" to those who wants to have a picture of Circle´s live magic. Really great to know they have played live great "Pharaoh Overlord"-album songs. I really would have liked to hear them also last summer in the Sideways festival where they played. But their gig was shortened because the gig transfers from the main stage, which was closed `cause the storm, so that might be the reason not hearing them.
