Prog Reviewer
5 stars One of the best live albums of all time, and this especially because of a young violinist named Didier Lockwood, who was only 17 or 18 when this album was recorded, but who would become a major figure in jazz and fusion later. (Jean-Luc Ponty gave him the violin he himself had received from Stephane Grapelli, as a token of appreciation for his playing; this truly says something about Didier Lockwood). Magma are absolutely dark and terrifying on this album, with superior vocals by Klaus Blasquiz and Stella Vander. Christian Vander proves he is one of the best drummers in prog (too often forgotten in drum polls), and the bass is a real monster (only the bass of Nic Potter on VdGG's live album "Vital" is a competition for it). Definitely not easy listening, but Magma never were. An album that often finds its way into our CD-player.
