4 stars It was a ton of fun listening to this album a lot last week. Not sure what people thought who were parked beside me at traffic lights(haha). Yes Deborah Perry has a unique delivery doesn't she. She is in perfect form here on this live recording from Nearfest in the year 2000. This wasn't released until 2004 though. So the most current album from this band before this concert was "In Extremis" and five of the ten tracks on here from albums are from that one. Three from "In This Life" and two from "Moonsongs" although one of those is called "Exerpt From Moonsongs".

Highlight for me by far is the epic "Kingdom Come" from "In Extremis" clocking in at 13 1/2 minutes where they get dark and heavy at times. I mean this is all over the place with Deborah's outstanding vocals, Willey's deep, in your face bass lines, kerman's incredibe drum work and Johnson's sublime guitar expressions. This track has it all, and I had this one cranked! Lots of highlights though but I've reviewed all these songs before pretty much. We have two non album songs in "Piano Solo" and "Hamster Dance'' the latter I could have done without.

A must for Plague-heads out there but then you probably already have this. It was just great to have them in my play list everyday for over a week. Amazing band!
