4 stars Very good live album, and I am glad that they finally got a good recording of the vocals. On once in a Livetime I though James Labries singing was very lackluster and at times he sounded like he was just yelling in order to hit a note. None of that on this album at all. Sometimes I think the drums kind of take over, but in a way I kind of like that with this album. Al the players are on top of their game, and I personally have hears no mistakes, but when you make up the rules as you go like on the improv part, who can say if its right or wrong? It is very cool and amazing to hear those guys do stuff like that though. I still like the improvs on the Liquid Tension stuff though. I think they have a bit better feel to them. A very good buy, and a pretty fair approximation of their catalog of music, although there should probably have been a few songs that were there that were not But that's my opinion.
