2 stars Well a "meteor band" it was...that is a strange arrangement of a new line-up conceived by John Kenneth Wetton, trying to give the old melodic stuff by ELP and Asia a new birth: but to me it was -above all- another gift from Carl Palmer, invited by his old friend to play together once again live on stage, with the support of John Young and Dave Kilminster, a couple of good musicians. So this idea brought about a certain enthusiasm, but I've nothing else to say about this project:the mixing is bad,despite of their good performance, as usual (except on some vocal parts by John, being not perfect for this kind of songs anymore,but it never minds...) and,as for all these considerations, at the end I don't know whether the whole thing is useful or not.Although I always like to hear them in their live performances yet, especially during the execution of some classics by ELP,being able to forgive them for some tracks by Asia (with the exception of "Time Again") and a strange cover of "All along the Watchtower" as well,which is not interesting definitevely!!It makes me feel not completely involved into this project and let me think that this album is for the collectors only...make your own choice!!
