4 stars Very good live album by this great band, but with a problem: it has too much songs of the record Handful of Rain. It's undestandable, because they were presentating this album, but some songs of Edge Of Thorns and some classics are missed.

Nevertheless, the sound is very clear, and the guitar's sound perfect. Alex Skolnick made some variations from the Criss Oliva's guitar solos and it made the songs a little different and interesting, because he doesn't limit himself to repeat the other's work. And this is the first record where we can hear Jeff Plate on drums, and Jon Oliva on rythm guitars!!!

High point: the great duet by Jon Oliva and Zachary Stevens of the song Gutter Ballet.

Low point: the Chance's choirs are very missed here...

The Crow | 4/5 |
