5 stars Have you ever seen Falwty Towers' episode The Germans with that hilarious act from John Cleese when he asks for Colditz Salad and when he starts to act like a Nazi? Well, Germans can have humor too, even when the subject is the Second World War! This can be heard on this live album, in my opinion the best work from Grobschnitt. All songs are splendid renditions featuring lots of extras. The strong points from this band are the build-ups, the tension between the mellow and heavy parts and the excellent play on the guitar ('Lupo' knows how to rock), the keyboards (beautiful analogue sound with a wide range of instruments from 'Mist') and the drums ('Eroc' is the driving force). The music is powerful, alternating and captivating, this is one of the absolute higlights of the German progrock history. Especially the three parts from the 'magnum opus' "Solar Music" are 'wunderbar'! A MUST!!
