4 stars Overall,a very fun and enjoyable live album from Kraan, who still can kick out the jams live.

Musically, Kraan has setttled into an area not dissimilar to Wired/Blow By Blow period Jeff Beck, but adds their own unique Germanic twists and a little humor in the process. All throughout, it really is a fully integrated band, but you cannot help but notice how much Helmut Hattler's unique picked bass drives these songs along. The occasional trumpet of keyboardist Joo Kraus is a very welcome spice in the mixture too.

Some of the highlights include the classic Nam Nam, the ferocious bass-driven Vollgas Ahoi, the fiery guitar/bass duet Dinner for Two, and even the vocal tune You're Right is just good fun and funky as all get out. The only low point I'd say is the poppy Favorite Land.

All told, ag reat disc for throwing on for a long road trip down your favorite highway.
